Coffee Talk With Adam

A preliminary discussion about MESSAGE (Something about Bernie or Bust)

Coffee Talk with Adam – Something about Bernie or Bust.

Post-Game: Tonight’s Dem Debate

Some of my Lake County Dems and MSNBC were very impressed with Kamala. This is my response: She was impressive, but I’m worried that she’s Hillary 2.0. Sends the Dems vs. Trump without the Left, without Independents. Not sure a prosecutor can mobilize those low income inner city voters that like to stay away from elections.

It’s telling that our party has become so corporate and rightwing on the fiscal side that we falsely label bandaid solutions and simple civility as progressive rather than seeking bold systemic change. It’s like some kind of horrible reality game show. “Who Will Be America’s Next Chief Technocrat?”

We need a long view of where we want to go and practical ideas of how to get there. What we’re getting is a lot of platitudes and job interview talking points.

Kamala has a narrative, intelligence, and management skills, but is she a functionary or someone that can build a movement? We need to spark 30 years of consistent social and economic transformation. We need a new scheme that takes out the big bruisers. No offense to Bill Clinton or Barack Obama, but we need more than another system-oriented game management QB at this stage of the game. We need big plays.


Yay, Democrats, but F the DCCC and DNC. #MedicareForAll #PartyOfBotterman

Stream of consciousness from the screaming hell of caffeine addiction, My love/hate relationship with my party. Campaigns and Elections. Adam’s wild years. Political economy. Election2020. Honoring Veterans.

Keep your hate, clipped and distant
Keep your luck, a two-headed cow
The pilgrimage has gained momentum
Take a turn, take a turn
Take a fortune, take a fortune – R.E.M.


Adam’s random thoughts on DCCC, 2019 Patrick Botterman Award Breakfast, and #MedicareForAll. Plus, Lisa on #MedicareForAll
Piss DCCC – image from last night’s deleted tweet. I meant what I said but didn’t want to slam the DCCC the same day the DEM HOUSE did some good work.
