Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Elizabeth Warren has decided to lower the bar on censorship. No longer do we need to find some keyword or “dog whistle” to characterize something as worthy of being purged from the public discourse. Now, this paragon of truthfulness has decided that even this vague standard is not a fuzzy enough criterion to determine who …

Joe Biden is crashing. Bernie and Lizzie are unelectable. So who is there? No one else seems to be getting any traction, although there are still some clinging to the hope that they will catch fire somehow and win the hearts of the Democratic electorate. Super Tuesday is usually the day when a clear frontrunner starts to …
