#introductions Hello! Longtime Robbinsdale resident here, I live right across the street from where the Blue Line extension will (supposedly, hopefully, eventually) go in.
I built my own house here, took me three years. I can maybe help with home maintenance-y Qs?
Married a Canadian, have 2 small kids, enjoy handcrafting websites, learning LISP (Racket), & publishing little books.
Biden as nominee puts me in a real bind. If I vote for him, I feel like I’m effectively saying to my evangelical friends & fam, “I get it now. I’m just like you. I’ll vote for an incoherent rapist if he’s the only way we can get SCOTUS back. I was wrong to criticize your cynical pragmatism.”

Gov. Walz is, I think, two steps behind the curve of what we actually need to happen right now. By his own account to WCCO this morning: A) today's numbers are going to jump way up, and B) the rate of growth is going to accelerate! Besides this, he knows that the ratio of tested cases to the actual number out there is abysmal. And yet: a shelter in place order is “not the situation we believe we're at.” Bro, you must know it’s the situation we should have been at two weeks ago!
- I hate him, and I’ll hate myself, but I'll vote for Biden, if only so RBG can retire safely.
- I fully understand everyone who won’t and support their reasons.
- I don't blame Warren voters for being excited to vote for her on Super Tuesday despite the polls, which have missed badly before.
- But Warren herself, I think, missed the trick for progressives by not dropping out after Amy and Pete did.
We are both so dog tired and I have to be at work at 6am tomorrow. Plan is for both of us to try and go to sleep as soon as we put the kids down. Strongly resisting tea/coffee cravings…just 1.5 more hours left
I am feeling so down about the results that I’m tempted to bail on election coverage as much as possible for the next year. Still making monthly contributions to my candidate of choice and down-ballot candidates. But emotionally, I’m done, and I’m out.
Objectively, I know it's not over. But it sure looks like the coordinated centrist consolidation maneuver of the past few days was a power move that has won the race. Too late to counter now.
functionally the same thing happened though; all her voters went for Biden.
(I assume that any delegates Amy has won would in practice vote Biden at the convention anyway, since she endorsed him; however, I don’t know for sure.)
