Re: “Jackson Baker’s Berlin Snapshot

Arthur,

I've always been drawn to Berlin - I have a German last name, so perhaps there is something to "blood memory". Did you find what it was that drew Lou Reed and David Bowie to Berlin?

Best wishes,

Arthur

Re: “Marsha Blackburn Tries Out New Supervillain Catchphrase

The best part is that Marsha Blackburn is so abominable, I had to stop and wonder if this was truly satirical or not.

Re: “Grit and Bare It

Well, if they stop taking Tillery along on road trips, we'll know the new media regime has been imposed.
Seriously, this just feels wrong in several regards, and will certainly rub many fans the wrong way, like myself. Is there that much need for the Grizz to spin every single story, to be THE arbiter of Grizz happy talk and sanitized quotes? This trend is exactly why we have largely disfunctional media already, afraid to say anything critical about the most obvious lies and nonsense (see politics!).
The Grizz hiring a twitter 'maven' tells me all I really need to know about where this is going...no real media, but they'll drown us in BS tweets and fb posts like they did on media day, with no actual stories.

Re: “Scent of a Woman President

@Jeff,

Whatever it is, I don't like it, because I'm pro trade. Either she's shifting just to chase votes, which I think is garbage, or she's taking a stance that I don't agree with in the first place.

I agree that you should change your positions as you learn more and grow. I just don't buy that she's really changing her thought process so much as she's gauging where she needs to stand for votes.

@CL,

I do think the media is always overly excited to jump on attacking Johnson when he makes a mistake. I'm trying to figure out why that is. Do the numbers suggest that Hillary is losing more votes to Johnson? If Johnson's primary support are voters that would normally vote Trump, then you would think the media (outside of the conservative media) would want to encourage Johnson as a viable option.

Re: “Scent of a Woman President

Yep. What Jeff said. If I still held the same views today I held when I was 25, I'd be against gay marriage, for example. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with changing one's views or opinion on a subject or issue. Unless one is a hidebound partisan cultist.

Jeff,
Don't bother with the sugar coat. Sure, maybe Victoria Emanuel is better than Mousseolini, but she's still inbred Euro trash.

Re: “Register and Vote. Or Shut Up.

This one is almost over ... but starting on November 9 we will suffer through the claims of voter fraud, ballot snafus, dead people voting, polling place intimidation, and other foolishness. Then on November 10, campaigning will begin for the 2020 Presidential Election. sigh.

Re: “Scent of a Woman President

She could be changing her position to chase votes, Grove. Or she could be changing her position as evidence is brought to her attention, causing her to rethink the policies she supports. I don't much care for people who relentlessly stick to whatever idiot Randian garbage they believed 40 years ago in high school, but then I'm not a conservative.

And by the way, sports reporting might be the toy department, but it has defined how political reporting is done these days. The only difference is the names of the teams and the players.

Relentless upbeat picture - that's what we will get from Grindhouse City Media. "Everything is going marvelously! The team is together behind the coach. High fives all around in practice. Tractor production is up two percent this month."

Re: “Scent of a Woman President

My going in guess is that this election won't even be close. With demographic shift and many republicans sitting out voting this election Hillary will have the champagne out early. Heck, Bill will probably break his cigar out. Ahh yes, the Clintons back in the White House.

Re: “Former TN Legislator Jeremy Durham Kicked Out of UT Game for Hitting

My dog liked him enough to hump his leg when he was campaigning for his first legislative race when he knocked on my door.
Not exactly thrilled by BK, but we've had worse.

Re: “Scent of a Woman President

Grove,
I'm voting in MS this year, so I may not have to avoid the hard choice, although it will be interesting to see how Clinton does vs Obama's last numbers.
Does it seem to you that the media only covers Johnson if they perceive a gaffe?
