But The Donald has tapped into a deep well of anger about Washington, distrust of conventional politicians, and fear about the future. His poll lead seems incredibly durable. As Republicans know, the Democratic party won the popular vote in five out of the last six presidential elections. If the Republicans are going to win this time, they need a Hispanic strategy and a strategy for women. The question is whether either of those can be viable if the Donald show continues much longer.Popular vote doesn't exist, fuckhead. It's all about a few hundred voters in two or three states. You don't need millions, you need THE RIGHT DOZEN. And "Hispanic strategy and wyymmyynnseses strategy" are EXACTLY what the voters are pukingly shittingly disgusted with. (Incidentally, Mr BBC, Hispanic isn't correct any more. It's "Latina/o" now.) Even Mexicans and women are dead tired of the fagass Repoof "strategies", as NYTimes and Politico explicitly realized but BBC couldn't fathom.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
