Another reason why I'm proud to support Hillary: the deranged Republican hate.
Warning: Public Post
[This is a Ted Cruz ad, so don't donate]

For 23 years they have been claiming she did something illegal and for 23 years they have never offered any proof.

After all this time effort and money with nothing to show, all but those suffering from Clinton Derangement Syndrome have concluded she never broke any laws. 

She is the cleanest politician to ever run for president. 

She was the subject of a 40 million dollar "inquiry" into Whitewater as first lady, and 22 months and 4 million dollars "investigating" Benghazi. These inquiries yielded no indictments or even official accusations of wrongdoing.

After all this time effort and money with nothing to show, all but those suffering from Clinton Derangement Syndrome have concluded she never broke any laws. 

She's not even a target of investigation in this ridiculous fake "email server scandal." 

Cleanest. Politician. Ever. To. Run. For. President.

Congrats to Bernie. His win in New Hampshire is an amazing achievement and unmitigated triumph for the Democratic Party.

He is energizing a hard-to-reach constituency that will be critical in the general election for whomever the Dems eventually nominate. I still rate his odds at 4-1 against, but that's a yuuuuge improvement over the last several weeks.

UNKNOWN LOCATION—The brightly lit, stark-white room gradually coming into focus as he regained consciousness, GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio reportedly awoke in the Koch brothers’ secret compound Thursday and reached suddenly to his throbbing head to discover a cold metal device implanted behind his left ear.

Because, THIS!
 
"A new species of black tarantula that lives near Folsom Prison, California, has been named after Johnny Cash.
The famously black-clad country singer wrote a song about the prison, and also played a historic series of concerts for inmates there in the 1960s.
Aphonopelma johnnycashi is among 14 new tarantula species from the southern US which have been described by biologists in the journal ZooKeys.
Their study completely rewrites the family tree of the Aphonopelma genus.
One of dozens of tarantula genera, this group was previously considered to include more than 50 separate species".
Among 14 newly described species of tarantula is Aphonopelma johnnycashi, which lives near Folsom Prison in California.

OK, so we now what happened in Iowa for Bernie, Hillary, Ted, Marco and The Donald. The great unanswered question is what happened to 
Deez?
A third-party presidential candidate named Deez Nuts rises to third place in a CNN poll.

Team Pressler is a big fan of David Pogue. LG was such a fan of his NOVA Making Stuff series that we went to hear him give a lecture (and mini-concert.) He was great. He was talking about intrusive technology and the fine line between useful and creepy. During the presentation, he announced he had left the NYT and was going to work for Yahoo. later in the presentation, he showed an ad for a streaming video camera that used as its pitch a picture of a young woman at the office keeping an eye on a sleeping infant via the streaming camera. Pogue made a wise crack about why this would be a positive selling point.

I yelled out, "Maybe she works at Yahoo."

I got him to laugh pretty hard. Marissa Mayer had just made news by banning any work from home.

For me, that was the first clue that she didn't have one. The other clue is that in all the time she has had one of the best and most trusted consumer reporters in the country on her payroll, she has never asked his department to review the Yahoo website.

And holy crap is it a mess.

They have the resources to be a legit media company, but they don't have anyone who has a clue how to do it. She's clearly going to come out of this very well personally. Maybe in a few years she can launch a failed bid for statewide office in California.
CEO Marissa Mayer's turnaround effort isn't going well.

O. M. G. Werner Herzog is working for Samantha Bee.

I love Sam Bee, and her show is entering into a crowded space. I hope she does well. If this is any indication. She'll be fine.

It would be like Obama appointing Bernie Sanders as Vice President.

For those feeling the Bern, here's a song about the original progressive on the national stage. And for more information, here;'s a great interview  with historian Peter Kuznick about Henry Wallace.

Nigel De Jong to LA Galaxy. WTF, Galaxy?

http://www.espnfc.com/story/2800217/la-galaxy-complete-signing-of-nigel-de-jong-milan-release

When asked for comment Je Jong's own mother expressed disappointment saying, "America was the only country we could still visit without being asked if we were related to that klootzak, but soon we won't be able to go there either."

Two cases of Zika in Dallas. One contracted in Venezuela, eno contracted via sex with a person who traveled abroad. No information about whether the two cases are related. 

I know Texas has a well earned bad reputation when it comes to public health, but the Dallas County health department is quite good. They responded very well to the ebola case in '14. And they are likely more on top of Zika than anywhere else in the country. 

If Zika is already in Dallas, it's certainly in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, New Orleans, San Diego and Los Angeles. It has been a warm winter, and there are still mosquitos out there. That's a lot of people exposed. It is going to be a really bad situation come spring.

I hear you should use condoms to keep from spreading zika.  But how do you get them on the mosquito?

Corey Robin gonna whitesplain Bill Clinton and the politics of the 90s.

Public Post
(Also, this is cribbed from a coment I made on +Jürgen Hubert's post.

Robin's piece boils down to this: liberals and black people should apply the politics of 2016 to 1992 and ret-con Bill Clinton as a racist and enemy of black people and liberals.

It doesn't hold up. 

I'm about the exact same age as Robin but I apparently remember the politics much better than he does. 

The Sister Souljah "moment."
The Los Anageles Riots occurred in May of 1992 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wc_SgpyJWRY
This was, at that time, a bigger story than the Ferguson protests were in 2014. Ferguson is still potent and that was over a year ago. In the midst of this, Sister Souljah said some stupid things: I mean, if black people kill black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people? 

Less than 2 months after the Los Angeles riots, and about a month after her remarks, Bill ended up speaking at the Rainbow Coalition (an important campaign stop for a Democratic candidate) the day after Sister Souljah. He played respectability politics with it. Respectability politics are deservedly on the outs these days, but here's what Clinton said: 
http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4460582/sister-souljah-moment 
I am a little baffled that Clinton's milquetoast remarks are Robin's biggest memory of 1992.

Ricky Ray Rector: sure I am opposed to the death penalty, and I was in 1992. It matters not at all to me that Rector was manifestly mentally incompetent - because I think the death penalty is wrong regardless. So I am a bit baffled about Robin's special hate for Clinton when there wasn't an anti death penalty candidate in the race? For that matter, when was the last time this country elected a president who was opposed to the death penalty? Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Carter - all in favor of the death penalty (at least at the time they were running for office.)

Welfare reform: Clinton had lost both houses of congress in 1994 and had already vetoed two Republican welfare bills. Welfare reform was shaping up to be a major issue and it was favoring the republicans. Many, including myself, were wondering if his veto would get overridden by a few rogue Democrats fearful of their election prospects. In the summer of '96 Clinton negotiated a bill with Gingrich. It ended AFDC, and instituted TANF. It was a step back for liberals. But in my opinion, it was a successful rearguard action in a strategic retreat.

1993 Crime bill. There is so much legitimate hate for this in retrospect because it led to a huge increase in incarceration, but we are all here in the future of 2016. People take for granted the positive parts of this act: a Federal Assault Weapon ban; a Federal rape shield law, protections for victims of domestic violence, and funding for community policing. It was a hugely popular bill at the time and passed despite fervent opposition from the NRA. I can clearly see the flaws with mandatory sentencing but, again, I am here in the future of 2016 also.

+Adam Pressler : protohipster. He liked things before before they were cool. 

The troll train catches +Adam Pressler; he backpedals and pretends he meant to ride slowly the whole time as he yells "It's not a race!" though his sweat soaked jersey belies his true intentions.

Oh, Adam... You're a  never-ending fountain, constantly spewing "win"

Adam, your hair appears to be injection molded and your mother dresses you funny.

You sure +Adam Pressler ? I might cut your chicken wings clean off. 

You need to either stop drinking or stop talking.
