Senator Squish and Senator Stalwart   Recently updated !

The dozen or so Senate Democrats who voted to roll back the meager financial protections in Dodd-Frank could benefit from a Highlights for Children “Goofus and Gallant” to tell them how to vote if they weren’t too busy cashing checks from banks and dampening midterm enthusiasm as a result.

The DNC’s Unscheduled Events

The DNC's Unscheduled EventsThe other party’s having a convention this week. Instead of being outright racist and hateful, they are simply comically inept. It’s great to have choices in a democracy!

If you’re in Philly for the convention, check out The Nib’s HQ at 303 Cherry Street between 12 and 6pm. I won’t be there, but a lot of my friends will. I have a bunch of work at the space, including some swag you can take home.

Democratic Debate Tweaks

Democratic Debate TweaksLast week’s Democratic debate was a welcome relief from the GOP train wrecks. While light on foreign policy, it was a substantial discussion of what’s at stake in the upcoming election. 15 million tuned in, the most for any Democratic debate, which is great free advertising for a party that’s been struggling for air time against the Trump Show.

The next three debates won’t get that number of eyeballs combined. In a bid to pave the way for Hillary, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz scheduled them all on weekends and possibly in the middle of the night between infomercials. I’ll never know because I spend my weekends doing fun things and staying as far away from the news-cycle grind of the workweek.
