Well, that gives credibility to my guess below.

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Winners

I'm guessing the discussion going on now is whether they should award both Scorsese and The Irishman, or whether they should limit The Irishman to Best Picture (and Sup. Actor).

Yes, I could be wrong. But why would New York deny their favorite son?

Re: Impeachment and Removal from Office

I saw that poll. It really unnerved me as well, until I saw all the explanations of how much of an outlier it may be. (In that same poll, Republican support for impeachment has gone up.) But I won't relax until Nate Silver tells me to, and he hasn't said anything about it yet. Nor does it explain wh...

Re: Campaign 2020

She doesn't need to show ANY math. She just needs to make explicit the difference between "taxes" and "expenses" whenever she's asked the "Will you raise taxes" question. That only takes 5% more effort, which is actually less effort than ducking the question altogether.

Re: Campaign 2020

A couple of points. Someone at another site posited, and I think it's a valid postulation that Elizabeth Warren KNOWS Medicare for All wouldn't pass the Senate, but as an opening gambit, doesn't it make "public option" a much more appealing alternative? What it does is it makes a differen...

Is it because he doesn't want them to win or because he doesn't think they can win? Oh, he'll SAY he doesn't think they can win, but he doesn't truly believe it. As you just said, "It seems unlikely but at this point four years ago no one was predicting Trump would get the Republican nominatio...

No it's not. It's also to keep from Sanders or Warren winning.

Congratulations, Nationals! That win just felt right.

As for the Astros, it's uncanny how they can be masterful and garbage simultaneously.

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

Sabin, I only skimmed your review, but are you sure it was "I Want to Hold Your Hand" you heard? The trailer plays "I'm a Believer". My main issue with Jojo Rabbit - based only on the preview - is very simple. First "Kids, it's time to burn some books!", "Yaaaaaay!...
