“Welcome to Culture War 2.0: The Great Realignment”
My piece for The American Mind
American political discourse would improve approx 3,600% if major networks would stop hiring partisan operatives to serve as “analysts”. You could hire a political scientist from a mid-sized state school for 1/100th of the cost & they’d actually provide analysis, not talking pts.
But it's not just Trump. All of democracy comes down to this. Will we take our responsibility to uphold #LiberalValues seriously? To demand truth and accountability, from our representatives, the media & each other. When it's unpopular. When it doesn't serve our interests.

Is there an option to stop seeing replies even when I follow both users? I think this might be useful to others too because I think a big advantage of how people on-ramp into the #fediverse comes in having a server community, but that means you are following most of the people there, which leads to seeing a lot of replies that you have no context for and which bury other toots. A separate tab for such conversations and a notification when it's updated might work well. Thanks.

If the logic of #BlueNoMatterWho prevailed, it argues for candidates who lose primaries. Since every Democrat should automatically get all the votes on the left, the best candidate is least appealing to Dems & thus probably most appealing to independents & Republicans. Genius.
