SL 677

Me elsewhere… The latest newsletter. Check out these pretty books that turned out to be worth more than I thought. (I paid $4 for them. Shhhhhh.)

Share your favorite Thanksgiving recipe. I do the Ina Garden method, so I already brined my bird. And Pioneer Woman’s stuffed mushrooms for an app. We actually roast our own pumpkin for pies; I discussed the process (and handled criticism) before here and here.

We just signed up for our local Turkey Trot. It’s going to be really lame, because I was actually lame for two months and am now totally out of shape.

Just calling it now — I think the final ticket is going to be a mayor — current or former — whose name begins with B. Oh, wait! There’s three of them. Who knew? Have there ever been this many majors in a primary before? Not sure. Anyway. Based on my highly scientific polling of people I drink with and/or am related to, I think it’s going to be Pete with VP Cory.

    Doubtful. Buttiegig has no traction with African-American voters. None. The ones who don’t know him like someone else and the ones who do know him despise what he has done in South Bend. And when offered a chance to respond to the criticism of that aspect of his record he has no response. He is going to get out-caucused in union-machine Nevada, absolutely flogged in South Carolina, and then killed the next week in the southern Super Tuesday states with no particular place on that day he would be strong except Minnesota. He won’t clear 15% in most of those states and then he will be done.

    As for Booker, I suppose he could be VP but he has no chance of being president. Democratic primary voters know who he is and aren’t buying. Probably because he is a bog-standard Democrat on most issues but on the ones that he is most passionate about (opposing financial industry regulation and education) he is basically Betsy DeVos’ twin brother and why would Democrats want that?

    1. This seems like a halfway plausible ticket to me, because the panjandrums of the Dem party are frantically signalling NOT HER for Warren and NOT HIM for Sanders and everybody is nervously waiting for the Biden totally vacant moment which will take him out of contention. So Buttigieg is pretty much who’s left. As for Booker “the ones that he is most passionate about (opposing financial industry regulation and education) he is basically Betsy DeVos’ twin brother and why would Democrats want that?” those are both issues which will do him good with the plutocrat wing of the Dems, and his flirtations with charters, etc. will help stop the bleeding with black parents who want to be preserved from the depredations of the teachers’ unions.
