Seems like rescuing dogs during lockdown is a thing around here. It happened to us this past week. This guy wandered up dirty and skinny, playing with my daughter in the front yard. After a few days o

About the GDP news....it’s obviously great that the economy is making its way back.  But something to keep in mind is that if you have $100 and lose 50%, you have $50.  If you gain 50% back, you only have $75. 

As someone noted in another post, we’re not even close to being back to where we were before.  And now we have a spike in covid threatening to upend everything yet again.

Matt, Glenn, and Bari Weiss are going to combine to make the ****tiest Voltron ever.

You could sense Taibbi's smugness and nihilism in his work at Rolling Stone but he's really gone off the rails. I used to read his stuff before Trump became president and it was genuinely enjoyable but afterwards, a lot of his work was much less palatable. Plus he got Me Too'd so that made me wary of him too.

EDIT: Also it looks like Taibbi's been railing about the Biden emails for a few weeks too.

Again, Glenn has done some tremendously good work, but holy ******* **** what an absolutely insufferable **** of a human being. Just the worst personality in the western hemisphere. Good luck in your new endeavors, Glenn, and I hope your animal shelter continues to do good work.

Probably why a certain poster identity’s with a certain segment of his tweets.

Interesting developments this morning:

First an outlier from Wisconsin, the ABC WP Poll, has Biden up 17%.  (Biden is not up 17%)  But, an average is an average and that moves Biden to a 7.8 percent lead.  Applying "the shift" gives him the state by 1.7% win.  

The more intriguing change is in Arizona.  Although Biden's lead has shrunk to 2%, Trump's corresponding lead in 2016 had grown to 3.0% in 2016.  He won Az by 3.5.  So applying that shift gives Biden Arizona by 1.5.  

That brings the total to Biden 270-268*

 

 

*I think that is giving him one of the congressional districts from Main or Nebraska

 

Lots of polling today.  I think the current biggest change is Pennsylvania is now leaning Biden.

The race is even tighter than it looks.  The lightest tinted states* are where the margin after "the shift" is less than .6%  So if Trump does .6 better than the improvements he made from this pointin 2016, he wins 299-239.  But if Biden does .6 better than Hillary did from this point in 2016, 383-155.  That is insane.

*Other than Nebraska.  I don't know why it is not darker.

Got the math, but it was still an impressive snap back qtr few would have predicted back in March-April....Plus how could any reasonable person expect it to be back to where it was before after a lockdown that put out thousands of businesses and millions of workers?

GLENN GREENWALD RESIGNS FROM THE INTERCEPT

Greenwald’s decision stems from a fundamental disagreement over the role of editors and the nature of censorship.

GLENN GREENWALD’S DECISION to resign from The Intercept stems from a fundamental disagreement over the role of editors in the production of journalism and the nature of censorship. Glenn demands the absolute right to determine what he will publish. He believes that anyone who disagrees with him is corrupt, and anyone who presumes to edit his words is a censor. Thus, the preposterous charge that The Intercept’s editors and reporters, with the lone, noble exception of Glenn Greenwald, have betrayed our mission to engage in fearless investigative journalism because we have been seduced by the lure of a Joe Biden presidency. A brief glance at the stories The Intercept has published on Biden will suffice to refute those claims.

The narrative Glenn presents about his departure is teeming with distortions and inaccuracies — all of them designed to make him appear as a victim, rather than a grown person throwing a tantrum. It would take too long to point them all out here, but we intend to correct the record in time. For now, it is important to make clear that our goal in editing his work was to ensure that it would be accurate and fair. While he accuses us of political bias, it was he who was attempting to recycle the dubious claims of a political campaign — the Trump campaign — and launder them as journalism.

We have the greatest respect for the journalist Glenn Greenwald used to be, and we remain proud of much of the work we did with him over the past six years. It is Glenn who has strayed from his original journalistic roots, not The Intercept.

The defining feature of The Intercept’s work in recent years has been the investigative journalism that came out of painstaking work by our staffers in Washington, D.C., New York, and across the rest of the country. It is the staff of The Intercept that has been carrying out our investigative mission — a mission that has involved a collaborative editing process.

We have no doubt that Glenn will go on to launch a new media venture where he will face no collaboration with editors — such is the era of Substack and Patreon. In that context, it makes good business sense for Glenn to position himself as the last true guardian of investigative journalism and to smear his longtime colleagues and friends as partisan hacks. We get it. But facts are facts, and The Intercept’s record of fearless, rigorous, independent journalism speaks for itself.
