Democratic sausage making

Yeah, 30 years ago, I’d be right with those guys. šŸ™‚

And no, she isn’t some deadbeat in her personal life, as some right wingers claim. Now what she becomes, who knows. She does have political skill and is an excellent communicator. What she does with that: who knows.

Politics: very messy. I’ve spoken a bit about the situation in Virginia. The Republican who would be governor had the top 3 stepped down: went to VMI when it was still segregated and, yes, oversaw the production of a yearbook that had racist stuff in it. Why this would surprise anyone just astonishes me; what would one expect from a university that didn’t even admit blacks until the following school year (August, 1968)?

So…maybe it is better that governor and co. NOT resign?

There are other things irritating me. Some Democrats are attacking Neomi Rao (nominee to fill the judgeship that Kavanaugh vacated to go to the Supreme Court). Yes, as an undergradate, she wrote some mean things (as this friendly article admits). But here is one of the things that Kamala Harris attacked her for. (pdf file) The gist: if two students are drunk and have sex, why is the male liable and the woman not liable? And is it not a good idea to not get drunk to begin with (drunk to the point where you cannot protect yourself). OF COURSE, being drunk doesn’t mean that people have license to rape you..or do other things to you (e. g. steal your money…as has happened). But giving a safety tip does, in no way, excuse the criminal if you become victim of a crime.

I just get sick of it all, at times.

Workout notes: yoga, 1 mile treadmill (11:30), 5.33 on the track (40 laps, lane 3) in 55:48; 8 lap times: 11:46, 11:39, 11:27, 10:46, 10:08 (miles: first mile was just over 11, final was 9:30 so each lap time was about 40 seconds slower than the mile split).

Weight: 194.

Basketball notes: yes, on Saturday, I watched the men lose at home to Southern Illinois, despite being up by 10 points at the half.

Tip off. Decent crowd, but not packed.

BU had its chances but got out worked down the stretch. They did win impressively on Wednesday evening though (at Evansville)
