Love that it’s daily now

The Politics Podcast used to be one of the highlights of my week. I’m so glad they decided to make it a daily podcast. Their timing is right on, with all the impeachment stuff going on and with the election season ramping up. If it weren’t for NPR, I think I’d go nuts trying to get straight information about the news, and politics in particular. Thank you to all the members of the Politics Podcast for everything you do. Count me as a steadfast fan!

Excellent, yet...

First dive with this Podcast was with today’s roundup on the 4th Dem Pres Debate. Excellent, yet, how is it possible for one of the commentators to say, “the Impeachment Issue will be long gone by the November 2020 election”? In a narrow temporal sense, yes. However, the Impeachment Issue will have profound persistence well past 11.20 in terms of the resilience of our Constitution, adherence in all quarters to the Rule of Law, and the ability for individuals and groups to think and act above politics at critical points for our Nation—and to recover to something resembling a healthy democracy after an election where there will be severe lines among and between the perceived “winners and losers.” Of course, the panel knows all this. Keep blogging! Thank you.

It’s great but...

Mara Liasson clearly has a bias against Bernie Sanders. If she mentions him at all, there is always a negative slant. It was evident in 2016 and it’s crystal clear again in 2019.
