This is my “retired” blog.
From 2004 to 2o14, I blogged (long-form, since I started out writing for magazines) nearly every day.
And was featured in Salon, Crooks and Liars, The Moderate Voice, The Democratic Daily, BlueOregon, The (Eugene, Ore.) Register Guard, The (Portland) Oregonian, the Eugene Weekly, The Omaha World Herald, on the local AirAmerica affiliate KOPT and on PBS. (See sidebar for the PBS interview). Etcetera.*
[* As in there are more, but I don’t spend a lot of time cultivating my C.V.]
Since 2014, I have blogged infrequently and occasionally, but when I do, I post here.
Now we know it was a fair and transparent election:
Statement by President George W. Bush
— President Bush congratulates President-elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris — DALLAS, TEXAS — I just talked to the President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden. I extended my warm congratulations and thanked him for the patriotic message he delivered last night…
OK. Nothing to see here. Move along move along. Blue won. Or did they?
Let me engage in a bit of rational, logical conspiracy theory*.
As the Trumpists rail that the election was “stolen” one salient fact has been glossed over: the presumption that all pollsters in all states (and in every presidential election since 2000) “got it wrong again.”
Really? That might bear a scintilla more of interest. Let’s do a little deduction, shall we?
