It is Friday again, and time to report in. There are a number of by-elections worth your attention: The Georgia 6th run-off, Rob Quist’s run for the at-large Congressional seat in Montana [check here if you have missed this one], among others. The energy level on the ground among Democrats generally and progressives in particular remains astonishing. Judging from the fact that the DNC sat out the Georgia primary, took heat for that, and is now putting real money into the run-off, there is some evidence, albeit fragmentary, that the establishment types are susceptible to pressure. Keep it up.
I remain genuinely staggered by the inability of the Office of the President, the State Department, and the Defense Department to get their stories straight on where one of America's aircraft carriers is. Those are seriously big ships [longer than a football field with a 4.5 acre flight deck!] They even have little telephones on them, I believe, so that you can call them up and ask where they are.
Four years of Trump may dramatically reconfigure the geopolitical world map as countries decide they cannot afford to throw their lot in with America. I am not sure whether that is good or bad for the world, but it sure would be different.
Anyway, let me know what you have been up to this past week.
