* Koster and Greitens are sniping at each other over internet memes. And no, Pepe isn’t involved.
You know, it’s strange. In a race whose politics will be determined by organized labor related issues, as I have been telling you for a year and a half, (and this would have been the case no matter who the nominees were), and in a race whose money on both sides is coming from vested interests in organized labor related issues, we strangely don’t get any public campaigning on those issues. Koster has a healthy lead, but he could very easily ice this thing away by doing one media buy: “I’m against RTW, my opponent is for it. If I win, RTW will not happen, if my opponent wins, it will.” Now, the reason Greitens won’t run on this issue is that he probably knows the bad politics of doing so, like I do. But for Koster to pass this up is like foregoing a hammer when you’re walking into a room full of nails.
* The big media sources in this state are treating a matter of drunk and angry college students yelling racial slurs at each other like it was some sort of damned complicated convoluted miniseries-quality unsolved serial killing murder mystery.
* Just when we’re on the upswing, the alt-right is going to start an internal civil war over someone who has never embraced the label.
* A Venezuelan former hood ornament.
At this rate, I should just go outside and scream that NOTHING IS HAPPENING, and then watch mass pandemonium ensue.
