Each side feels like a victim, and they are both correct. But neither sees that they are also the victimizer of the other side. Each is both victim and perpetrator. Each sees the other’s crimes, while blind to its own crimes.

Support Bob Casey!
Peggy Stuart #FirstWave @PeggyStuart
Sen Casey has taken on powerful interests to fight for:

➡️ Workers' wages and benefits

➡️ Retirees' pensions and Social Security

He won't back down from that fight. Pennsylvanians deserve a Senator who's on their side, not someone who's just out for themselves.

“Aid flowing into Gaza is nowhere nearly enough… lives are on the line,” Biden said as he announced the decision about the airdrops during an Oval Office meeting he was holding with Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

Great, but I wonder what they expect to accomplish. I think they might get more political leverage out of pushing the border solution passed by the Senate and blocked by House MAGAts. Voting rights is crucial, but perhaps wait, and for now stress MAGAt funding obstructionism? Still, ok - I favor it.

Very bad news. Judge Luttig just said there’s no reason for them to hear it. April date.

We're five months into this Israel-Gaza debacle and still folks don't seem to understand that you can support Israel and oppose Netanyahu, support the Palestinian people and oppose Hamas, criticize Israeli brutality in Gaza and not be anti-Semitic, promote a Biden Admin

Finally! An alternative to cable news & the NYT

Mehdi Hasan is going independent.

The former MSNBC host is launching a new publication Zeteo, combining video, podcasts & text journalism that Hasan says “will bring you hard hitting interviews and unsparing analysis that you won’t find elsewhere.”

I have thought similar thoughts.
The Republican Party has degenerated from being merely ‘wrong’ into some kind of evil malevolence, working overtime to destroy democracy here, aiding and abetting authoritarian forces in Europe, and racist forces in the Middle East. They are reprehensible.
Jillian Anger @FurMom
Over the last several days I’ve been thinking. Wouldn’t it take only 2 sane Republicans in the house (at least 2 have announced they aren’t running again), to put country over party and leave the Republican caucus and become registered democrats to flip control of the house now?

Trump continues to underperform, winning Michigan with less than 70% of the GOP vote. Biden won 81% of the Dem vote. With Trump running ostensibly as an incumbent, this is not a strong turnout.

Although I hate to even give ANY attention to TFG’s untruth social spewings, I appreciate the commentary of Tom Shafer, here:
Tom Shafer @TomShafShafer
It's not a 'fact'. It's innuendo and salaciousness meant to distract. Trump still interfered in the 2020 election in Georgia. We've all heard his call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Trump is an indicted felon and a loser.

13.3% of Dems voted ‘Uncommitted’ in Michigan, per WaPo w/98% of the votes counted. This is slightly more than the almost 11% who voted Uncommitted when Barak Obama ran as an incumbent in 2012.

As @nefariousnewt notes here on Spoutible, POTUS received about 81% of the votes.

This ISN'T like Haley losing to "Not Any of These Candidates." President Biden got EIGHTY-ONE PERCENT of the Democratic Primary vote in Michigan. They can spin it any way they like, but Joe Biden's popularity is better than The Press is willing to report, because it ruins their narrative.

As Governor Whitmer has pointed out, Michigan is full of Muslims and Jews, as well as myriad other ethnic groups. If Biden does what Tlaib wants, he loses the bulk of the Jewish vote. If he backs Israel, he loses Tlaib (at least for now). Only way out: Create a Palestinian State.

Of course. But baseless criticism that recycles right wing attacks isn't okay. And equating the two candidates (and parties) when one wants to end democracy & rights for the marginalized while the other fights against that isn't okay.
