COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Has anyone synced the “Marriage Story” scene up with this Warren/Sanders exchange? Trying to be the 100,000th person to ask that

@daveweigel Would be more on brand if you tried to link it somehow to Bunheads

.@Bencjacobs: hey Ben, @daveweigel lied about me on his blog. Then he refused to approve a comment were I detailed how he lied. Real journalists give those they write about a right of reply. Weigel isn't a real journalist.

@Olivianuzzi @Bencjacobs To Donald: The President before you was FAR better

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@ColleenSchulz: Trump won & will be reelected *because of* those like @Olivianuzzi. She has access to leaders up to Trump himself, but has never once even tried to press them on the huge flaws in their policies that'd undercut them to their base. Instead, she just blogs fluff.

@ScottWartman @Bencjacobs @realDonaldTrump I love her more every time I see her, Dayton is so fortunate to have Nan Whaley

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@kab_fair: only @nanwhaley response to Trump's tweet is very weak. If she were smart she'd talk directly to his base about his many vulnerabilities (like how he's pro-amnesty, how his Muslim ban was either unnecessary or made us less safe, etc.) Echo chamber = bad.

@pbump @Bencjacobs Liz Warren would be eating someone's still beating heart in 15 seconds. I'm in.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@bratknits: what we desperately need are Socratic debates about policy. Warren & the rest would drop out if they were really asked tough questions about their policies. Dem operatives like @pbump will no more call for real debates than Bill Mitchell wants Trump to be debated.

@24AheadDotCom_ @pbump Yes, the law school professor knows nothing about the Socratic method... Did this sound bett… https://t.co/hJ3dpqBkm9

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@bratknits: 1. Your reply was censored; see "LowQuality" at my pinned tweet. Why aren't lib leaders speaking out against that? 2. Warren would be toast if anyone called her on her very pro-Big Biz immigration stance. She'd turn even more shrill, hurting her cause even more.

@24AheadDotCom_ The word oblast is slavic not English. Does Putin pay you when you fuck up or do you get a polonium cocktail right away?

.@NickyWoolf: FYI, I've repeatedly asked @TVietor08 to name a smart anti-Trump plan. All Tommy can do is call him names & that won't work.
