Today's "actual sunrise" happened at 7:04.

The most intense color came earlier, at 6:51:

Here is the view of the state capitol at 6:59:

At 7:08, the sun had obliterated all the red, magenta, and violet. It chose yellow and orange and tolerated the  blue:

Rats, Line of Duty season 5, supposed to be released and deliver today, seems to be stuck in the UPS system in Northern Ohio. UPS is usually the most reliable, too. Maybe not all dropoff points are equally good.

Slip that anticipation a day.

Am I late to the party if it just occurred to me that the Boba Fet bounty hunter in Mandalorian is a woman under that helmet and Disney is saving the woke scold moment? Right now the story is a cross between Fistful of Dollars and The Jungle Book set in space. They make a big deal that the helmet never comes off. Which means that one day it will and viola haters! You liked this movie with a female lead after all! But a lot of what Eastwood did in this kind of role had to do with both his good looks, and his facial expressions. Eventually Eastwood renounced the roles in that movie Gran Torino, but the woke scolds have adopted it as a “way to get through to those moronic men!”

It is Disney, so it’s gonna be woke, like it or not!

If the Dem convention vote occurred today, and if the RCP polling averages correctly reflect the statewide votes in the Dem primaries, for the 12 states which have RCP average polls, as of today, the first ballot result would be:

Biden 47%
Warren: 30 %
Sanders 21%
Buttigieg 2%

No first ballot victory for anyone. (Some of the polls are pretty old.)

Rosalyn beat me to it, re Bloomberg.

I have never heard a presidential announcement that contained less passion or charisma. Worse than Jeb Bush. Worse than Joe Biden. Worse than Ben Stein as Bueller's teacher.

Drago said...

We need to start making a list of how obambi is setting the stage for Michelle to jump into the race.

Consider these recent and not so recent reports and actions on the part of barack-y:
Joe Biden:
1a) Refused to endorse Biden
1b) Axelrod, obama's "go to guy" continously and strenuously attacks Biden
1c) Barack continually leaks his clear lack of confidence in Biden (see Ryan Lizza's article on Barack/Biden in today's politico for the latest example)

Lizzie Warren
2) Barack has now on several occasions readopted his fake "practical" and "down to earth persona" to attack Warren as being far, far, far outside the mainstream of politics.

Bernie Sanders
3) Obama has come out and told other Democrats he would personally intervene to stop Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination

Pete Buttergerreerresaigaggiggaag
4) Who are we kidding? Li'l Petey couldn't pull a black vote to save his life

Who is left?

Nobody that matters.

Hillary?

LOL Do you really think obama would stand aside and let her grab the mantle again? Not. A. Chance.

Nope nope nope.

There is someone waiting in the wings...waiting to see how the IG/Durham/Barr investigations pan out and setting the stage for a late entry which will garner 99.999% complete in the tank historical positive coverage from the world's media.

The obama Organizing for America structure is in place. The obama campaign structure and personnel stand at the ready. The media waits to do its part.

It's all right there.

Bay Area Guy said...

As a reminder, our friend, Drago, predicted long ago that there'd be: (1) a brokered Dem convention and (2) Michelle My Belle Obama would be drafted to rescue the nomination.

Not sure about 2, but 1 is looking more and more likely. Biden has to be the weakest.front.runner.ever!

If Drago gets this right, we will have to bow down before him.

tcrosse said...

We need to start making a list of how obambi is setting the stage for Michelle to jump into the race.

The Michelle presidency would be a return to the business model of the Barack Obama presidency: a telegenic figurehead to front for the gang that really runs things. But I cannot fathom what's in it for her.

Beasts of England said...

I think that’s a reasonable scenario, Drago. They don’t have anyone in the field who can beat Trump, as they all have considerable negatives. Bringing in Big Moo after the primary would save her lazy ass a lot of effort, and would limit her exposure to say ugly things about white people.

I’m not sure who would be an appropriate veep candidate, although Buttplug checks another ‘historic first’ box and keeps the gay money flowing. Not that it matters - Trump would destroy her in the debates. She’s even dumber than her husband, and is prone to rage...

Drago said...

tcrosse: "The Michelle presidency would be a return to the business model of the Barack Obama presidency: a telegenic figurehead to front for the gang that really runs things. But I cannot fathom what's in it for her."

Universal adoration and worship.

And that's not hyperbole.

Bay Area Guy said...

Here's Biden's new ad touting his VP experience.

It's pretty good (IMO). Looks presidential.

Problem 1: How come President Barack Obama has been entirely silent on Biden's candidacy? No public support whatsoever.

Problem 2: How come Deval Patrick (an Obama wannabe) got into the race so late? Obama had to give his blessing for Patrick to do this. Obama woulda vetoed it, if it hurt whatever political aims he had.

Biden is weak, weak, weak. Not just the hair-sniffing, gaffes, and coke-head son, Hunter, but because his top political patron, the most powerful Democrat on the Planet (Obama), has given him the cold shoulder.

Interpret, please.

tcrosse said...

Universal adoration and worship.

She already has that, at least among Anybody Who Matters. But it could be a thumb in the eye to Hillary.

Drago said...

tcrosse: "She already has that, at least among Anybody Who Matters. But it could be a thumb in the eye to Hillary."

Not like the global and universal adoration and worship she would receive for defeating Orange Man Bad.

Plus, what candidate running can hope to reconstitute the obambi coalition? the thinking on their side is that Michelle running would be effective in securing a sufficient % of traditional black support AND gain support from independent suburban women.

That's probably their thinking. Not mine.

Trump has shifted the ground upon which elections on both the left and the right have been waged since the late '60's.

Trump could very very effectively argue to blacks that a Michelle win would return blacks to their old "normal".

Trump could also very effectively push Michelle into rejecting (for electoral purposes, not policy post-election) the most prevalent "woke" politics we see in action today with the left/LLR-left.

I would fully expect precincts in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Detroit, etc would generate 47,000% fraudulent "turnout" which might swing PA and MI back into the fold, though would not be as effective in WI and potentially MN, both of which Trump would need to nail down a "minimum" electoral college win.

Drago said...

I should have added a large caveat to my earlier Michelle posts.

It is possible by late spring of 2020 that Trumps advantage, particularly his increasing black voter and hispanic voter support, that the obanbi advisors might believe that a Michelle candidacy has an unacceptably high probability of failure.

Do not forget that the greater hispanic community by and large is still culturally resistant to lefty dem/LLR-lefty pro-abort/pro-transgender policies.

Anyway, it is THAT scenario (high probability of Trump reelection) which would present the greatest hurdle to launching a Michelle candidacy as that outcome and impact to the obama legacy would never be acceptable to the obamas.

Btw, did anyone else catch the news of the relatively large Trump team ad buys across major black media this week?

Food for thought.

stevew: "Michele doesn't strike me as the sort that aspires to be POTUS. I've never seen any indication she wants to run for any public office."

In 2007 Barack Obama stated unequivocably that he would not be a candidate for the Presidency and that he was committed to serving out his complete term as Senator.

2 months later he declared his candidacy.

These are new times. The old rules ceased applying in 2016.

Michelle is likely enjoying the sweet, sweet Netflix grift payback from net neutrality to take up the mantle...because that's what grifters do.

stevew said...

Fair point Drago, but at least Obama was a Senator at the time he declared.

I'm just saying it seems unlikely to me based on her public persona and the fact she's never run for anything (unless I missed something). She likes being in the public eye, and opining on all manner of public policy, just don't see any commitment to doing the hard work of campaigning for office.

stevew:"I'm just saying it seems unlikely to me based on her public persona and the fact she's never run for anything (unless I missed something)."

The position the obama's find themselves in is unprecedented. Michelle would only need to declare to cakewalk into the nomination. If she waits until the convention even better. She will have completely missed the rough and tumble primaries and will minimize the amount of the time republicans can go after her experience/record.

And lets not kid ourselves, you thought the media protected obama? (they did) Well, if Michelle is the nominee you ain't seen nothing yet.

I believe by early next year we will have had google, twitter, facebook etc go full censorship on any opposing ideas vs the dems. I wouldn't be surprised if the first time Trump criticizes Michelle they kick Trump off twitter.

Further, every action and statement by the obama's and their minions since 2018 (as well as the continuous and serial publicity tours for her books/speeches) only fits one outcome: Michelle will run.

It explains everything.

Drago said...

I also believe that the obama's are behind the entry of both Bloomberg and Deval Patrick into the race.

Bloomberg to siphon off key overlapping white voter support of Biden and Deval Patrick to cut into Biden's (so far) somewhat "lock" on the black dem primary vote.

These 2 late entrants are like laser-targeted primary missiles aimed at Biden's core voters.

Still might not be enough to knock Biden out which is why the obama's and their pals keep slamming Biden directly and indirectly. Barack probably doesn't want finger prints that are too overt as Prime Mover in knocking slow joe out of the race, so as not to completely alienate battleground traditional dem Biden supporters from supporting a Michelle candidacy in the general.
