CBS reports that Kanye West appears to have collected enough signatures to be on the ballot as an independent candidate for President in his home state of Illinois this November. Just splitting the Democrats’ vote in Chicago alone could be decisive this fall. If Kanye gets on the ballot in a few more blue states, I’m gonna have to buy some more popcorn futures.
She voted present on both of the impeachment articles in the House of Representatives today, One Democrat voted no. One other Democrat who is expected to change parties voted no.

I think so, Brain … but it’s easy to give away the stuff you don’t own.
I think so, Brain … but don’t most politics transcend common sense to the point of dispensing with it altogether?
I think so, Brain … but have you noticed that the only unanimity in Congress is their commitment to disagreement?
I think so, Brain … but the people complaining that politics isn’t what it used to be are wrong because it is what it used to be, and that’s the problem.
I think so, Brain … but if an elected politician has a credibility gap, the public must have a gullibility fill.
There’s a growing group among the Democrats in Congress agitating for the impeachment of President Trump. It may be that they are just throwing some political mud around as a form of self-promotion. OTOH, they may really believe that Trump should go. If the later is the case, they need to get themselves better organized. Not all of them were around for the Clinton impeachment 19 years ago, so they should pick a leader with some actual practical experience with the impeachment process. Alcee Hastings comes to mind.
I think so, Brain … but so many politicians remind me of boiled okra.
I think so, Brain … but isn’t it a hassle for female politicians to have to put makeup on both faces?
I think so, Brain … but a $5 donation probably won’t secure an appointment as an ambassador.
I think so, Brain … but isn’t this just an example of a politician trying to save both faces?
I think so, Brain … but if Trump is the answer, we must be asking the wrong question.
I think so, Brain … but Foghorn Leghorn probably won’t vote for anyone named Sanders.
I think so, Brain … but the Sanders who makes the most sense is the Colonel.
I think so, Brain … Washington couldn’t tell a lie, and Nixon couldn’t tell the truth. Can Hillary tell the difference?
I think so, Brain … but it was refreshing to hear a politician tell a bit of the truth—he called the other candidates liars.
I think so, Brain … but how come statism concerns federal governments and federalism concerns the states?
I think so, Brain … but wouldn’t anarchy be better than no government at all?
I think so, Brain … but if we Tippecanoe and Tyler too, won’t Tyler get awfully wet?
Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
