Election 2016 Memoirs: A Tale of Two Standards

Where's the media outcry for failure to take responsibility for the loss? Where's the outrage for the attack?

Tribute: Hillary Clinton: The Woman in the Arena

Adapted from an excerpt of the speech "Citizenship in a Republic", given by Theodore Roosevelt at the Sorbonne in Paris, France, 23 April 1910.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong woman stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the woman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends herself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

The class action lawsuit against the DNC was dismissed on Friday.

According to the ruling, even if the court assumed that all the allegations against the DNC were true, the plaintiffs still had no standing to bring a lawsuit in federal court, failed to establish that any "damaged class" actually exists, and failed to show that there were any concrete, measurable damages.

It's probably Hillary's fault

that Manafort was awakened from a sound sleep because the FBI wanted to rifle around in his underwear drawer.

Why aren't the "progressives" who are going after Harris, Booker, Patrick, and Pelosi

going after Pence and Kasich instead?

If 2016 taught us anything, it's that the media likes to co-opt a troubling narrative about Democrats, spin it into a standard script, and then present it as deep and meaningful analysis over, and over, and over again until it feels like obvious truth.

Why aren't people who are ostensibly on our side writing this script about the truly dangerous Pence and and the faux-populist Kasich?

Cui bono?

Is TCM trolling Trump & Co.? Look what movie is on Monday...

Say what Laurence Tribe?

What would Professor Tribe's Harvard law students say if they knew that he retweeted a clickbait headline that distorted a news story without doing the most basic due diligence of actually reading the article that appeared under it?

Here's what Mrs. Pelosi actually said according to the Fox News Sunday transcript:

WALLACE: OK. I got 30 seconds and the question is, what are the chances Democrats win back the House in 2018? And if so, will you run for speaker?

PELOSI: Itís so unimportant. What is important is that we have a lively debate on a better deal, better pay, better jobs, and a better future. And thatís what we look forward to having. We have unity in our party. You saw with the fight on Affordable Care Act in the House and in the Senate.

With respect Professor Tribe, The Hill's headline is an insane distortion. You should be more careful.
