HAGTRESS ALYSSA MILANO HAS FOUND A NEW HOBBY IN HER OLD AGE -- WORSHIPPING PEDOPHILES.
AS ALYSSA DAILY DEMONSTRATES THERE IS LITTLE TO NO CONNECTION BETWEEN THINKING AND TWEETING.
THE ELDERLY CELEBRITY RE-TWETTED AN ARTICLE PRAISING FRIEDRICH WILHELM VON STEUBEN. APPARENTLY SHE'S A-OKAY WITH A MAN WHO CAME TO AMERICA ONLY BECAUSE HE WAS FLEEING EUROPE TO AVOID CRIMINAL CHARGES OF ABUSING YOUNG BOYS.
REACHED FOR COMMENT BY THESE REPORTERS, ALYSSA ATTEMPTED TO BLAME HER HORRENDOUS ERROR ON CELIBACY -- "YOU KNOW I AM IN THE MIDST OF AN ONGOING SEX STRIKE."
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
In the United States, there are 24 candidates vying for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. Of those 24, 20 have met the arbitrary rules of the DNC that will allow them to be on stage for the first debates. Remember, democracy requires restrictions -- per the DNC. The debates will take place in Miami over two nights -- June 26th and June 27th. Today, NBC will stage -- stage probably being the key term -- a drawing and the drawing will determine whether you take the stage on the 26th or the 27th.
Who made the cut?
REUTERS has a photo of all 24 and, from their caption, here are the 20 who made it:
U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand and Michael Bennet; Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke, U.S. Representatives Tulsi Gabbard, John Delaney, Eric Swalwell, Tim Ryan, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro and former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Former Gov. John Hickenlooper, Gov. Jay Inslee, Andrew Yang, Marianne Williamson, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
And had I not been so impatient, I would have noticed that REUTERS gave a list of the 20 later in their piece.
It is news that four didn't make it. But the bigger news would be the 20 who did. I'm not a sports buff but when they have their draft picks, isn't the news who gets picked? When you have a spelling bee, you don't open with who didn't win. So I'm confused as to why you would bury the 20 and open with the four.
Here's another buried lede: Every woman, all six, running for the nomination qualified for the debates. That's historic. But, hey, media, look the other way yet again.
Hopefully, if you're vested in the race, you saw your personal choice or choices in the list above. Here's the four who did not make the cut: US House Rep and Iraq War veteran Seth Moulton, former US Senator Mike Gravel, the Governor of Montana Steve Bullock and, from Florida, Mayor Wayne Messam.
Some outlets insist that this is the end of the road for those four. That doesn't have to be the case. Already, Bullock is speaking out against the decision process. When he does that, he's speaking to anyone and everyone who's ever been cheated out of something for arbitrary reasons -- actually a large pool of people -- and he's speaking for his supporters and the supporters of the other three left out. He could gain some traction that way. Seth started his campaign very late and he's often spoken of how that might mean he doesn't qualify for the first debates. Point being, he could qualify for later ones if he stays in the race. Mike Gravel has a lively campaign that could overcome this and use it to fuel further actions. Wayne Messan's the only one I'd be concerned about. He has not gained traction. Even his Tweets have tended to underwhelm. That said, this decision not to allow him on stage might be the fuel that forces him to go deeper and he may end up at the next debates.
The debates after June? Just because the 20 qualified does not mean that they will qualify for the next debate. The DNC is making rules up as it goes along. Didn't they get in trouble for that last time? Or are we pretending that siding with one candidate before the primaries even start is one of the DNC rules?
At any rate, 20 made the cut for the first round.
