Was the Senate stolen via voter suppression?

I have not looked at the races closely enough to know; but certainly voter suppression in North Carolina and elsewhere was being carried out on an industrial scale. It may be that the Republicans would have won anyway; but the Democrats will not be able to win if their base is disenfranchised. Read below the fold...

Versailles Democrats failing upwards

Atrios on the 50 state strategy

One thing that I think people tend to forget is that Howard Dean's 50 state strategy wasn't simply about fighting everywhere, it was about shoveling money out of DC before the vultures there could get their hands on it. It was about the idea that people who run campaigns out of Washington don't know what the hell they're doing, but that as long as the money was sitting there, candidates didn't have much choice but to deal with them.

Looking for Green shoots on election day

So I went to my polling place and voted for Eugene Puryear and some other DC Statehood/Green Party candidates. There is a real possibility that he could win.

Should Muriel Bowser win, that would create a vacancy on council for the fourth ward seat. Green Party member Renee Bowser will probably run again. So there is a real possibility that DC could have two Green Party members on council. Read below the fold...

Eugene Puryear, showing how it is done

Will Sommer

Speaking of sleepy parties inexplicably active in this election, remember the Statehood Greens? Had a Council seat for a while until Catania poleaxed party warhorse Hilda Mason in 1998, been known for kooky candidates ever since?

Household remedy request

So my landlord set up a Raid fogger. I had no notice or time to prepare. So how should I clean up? Bear in mind that I have a collie dog, so I know I have to mop the floor with vinegar, What else? Read below the fold...

Analyzing the Teachout vote

Teachout carried the whole of the Hudson river valley. This was the anti-facking vote. Clearly that issue resonated. Howie Hawkins needs to take note. Read below the fold...

Bezos makes the Washington Post worse

Ronald Reagan’s No. 1 superfan now runs the Washington Post

I want to add some thoughts to the Salon article. The Washington Post has problems way beyond the typical "finding a business model in the digital age" problem. Way beyond.

The Washington Post is a right wing Republican newspaper in a Democratic town. The inside-the-beltway precincts have gone Democratic in every presidential election since 1960, every single one. Read below the fold...
