She really is the dumbest of dumb fuck populists.

Empty sloganeering on Twatter is all she has.

I know warmongering, chest-thumping american media blah blah blah, but I find it really hard to feel bad for russians right now and clearly I am in a super-majority

the problem with situations like this is that it gives people a taste of haughty superiority and the pure joy of bullying those who the prevailing culture deems to be wrong, thus beginning the feedback loop of seeking more and more crusader energy

Has the Biden adminitstration recognized the ICC at this point, or is that to come after their nintendoesque holiday break?

Two of those aren't new things. I know of studies back to the 1980's about how people estimate 40% of the population is Black or Latinx quite regularly. Nobody has ever figured out the explanation for the first one, the latter did show some evidence that constant talk about the "Guaranteed Demographic Changes" boosted the number in the 2000s and 2010s. Most people believe the United States is already majority-minority even though 70+% of it remains white and the majority-minority scenario won't possibly happen until the next century.

The New York and California ones have been explained in prior studies about whether people just take in national news or from sources like The New York Times versus actually paying attention to or favoring local news. It's not unusual to see things that happen in NYC/Cali/DC turn into "national news" stories just because all the news media people are in those areas. I've found it's not even unusual for local news to cover those stories to the detriment of local coverage as if anyone who wants local news actually cares.

Twitter's bubble effects are well known, even though a super majority of people aren't on Twitter this continues.

Drag em king! :preach

Andrew Cuomo said Thursday he’s open to running for New York governor again -- and would consider creating his own political party to do so.

The three-term Democrat, who resigned in August amid a sexual-harassment scandal, delivered his second public address in as many weeks, this time to a group of clergy packed into a small storefront pentecostal church in the Bronx.

Asked if he’s planning a run for governor, Cuomo said, “I’m open to all options.” When asked whether he’d consider creating his own political party to do so, Cuomo said, “I’ve done it before. My father’s done it before.”

...

Cuomo’s late father Mario, meanwhile, ran on the Liberal Party ballot line in his 1977 bid for New York City mayor, after losing the Democratic primary to Edward Koch. Cuomo got 41% of the vote in the general election but lost to Koch, who got 50%.

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s unanimous passage of a bill to make daylight saving time permanent stunned many Americans, not least of which the senators themselves.

In a twist the Founding Fathers likely did not anticipate, quirky Senate conventions and a decision by staff in Sen. Tom Cotton’s office may result in an overhaul in the nation’s time zones.

Reporters and politicos were caught off guard Tuesday afternoon when the Sunshine Protection Act sailed through the Senate without issue, with no senators speaking up to object to it passing by unanimous consent. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, serving as Senate chair overseeing the motion at the time, broke composure, burst into a grin, and whispered, “Yes!”

“I was surprised that someone didn’t object,” she told BuzzFeed News the next day, while noting that Arizona does not change its clocks, “because we’re smart.”

Any single senator could have blocked the daylight saving bill from passing but many didn’t know it was even happening. Sen. Rick Scott, a permanent daylight saving time proponent who signed a similar bill into law when he was governor of Florida, said he would have gone to give a speech on the Senate floor if he had known. Asked to re-create his reaction to the news, Sen. Chris Coons issued a series of shocked stammers that is impossible to phonetically translate.

One Senate source with knowledge of the situation said Sen. Tom Cotton vehemently opposes making daylight saving time permanent.

“No comment,” Cotton told BuzzFeed News when asked if he opposed the bill.

The source said that Cotton would have objected to the unanimous consent request, but his staff never told him it was happening.

“No comment,” Cotton told BuzzFeed News when asked why he didn’t object to the bill.
Quote
Other senators, it seems, were not told by their staff that the request was happening.

Coons is one of them. He said that he and some other senators reacted to the news by asking Rubio if they’d given everyone a heads up, and were told yes.

“It’s literally an issue my staff and I had never discussed, and they made an assumption that I don’t really care about daylight saving time,” Coons said. “And I don’t know if I do! I’ve never taken five minutes to stop and think about it.”

During a hotline, a senator’s legislative director typically vets the request. But sometimes those staff will decide an issue is too benign or obviously doomed to bother their boss with. “A lot of things try to get hotlined every day,” said Sen. Dan Sullivan (who, when asked if he knew the move was coming, did not explicitly answer but said, “you know, it wasn’t, like, my highest priority in the US Senate”).

So I go into this big room with a large table at the Pentagon and it has all these beautiful clocks on the wall and I hear all this noise and I ask the general: "Why the hell do we need so many clocks?"
And he says: "Sir, that's the clocks ticking sir, they tell us the time in any part of the world even if we lose power".

It was the most incredible sight and they were tick tocking all over the place and I probably understood it better than anyone else, I call it the timezone.
