An opinion piece published in The New York Times on Saturday that incorrectly asserted it has "been 36 years since a man and woman ran together [in a presidential election] on a Democratic Party ticket" was immediately panned on Twitter, prompting The Times to delete its tweet and correct the column. The article, written by Opinion Columnist Maureen Dowd, is titled "No Wrist Corsages, Please" and asks the question, "Has America grown since 1984, or will the knives still be out for [Joe] Biden’s running mate?" "It’s hard to fathom, but it has been 36 years since a man and

Comments:

Old Maureen forgot about Hillzabub's ticket, and deliberately ignored Palin's experience as VP candidate.

Yeah, I guess all those layers of brilliant editors were out to lunch. Or were in a diversity struggle session, because their brains were unable to struggle enough to recall the last two elections. Bummer.

So much of journalism's role these days is just making stupid and wrong statements to further the narratives of the injustice du jour and hoping it goes viral before anyone notices the truth. But she's right. I don't give a rat patootie which Black Woman he picks. I will be against her. And that's enough for the Left to label me a misogynist racist. I'm not, but fine. It's too tiresome to try and explain it to them.

I can remember why she didn't remember the Hilldebeast, since she sort of looks like a man and wears pantsuits all the time. And Sara Palin was most definitely a woman. But I guess old Mo Dowd was probably just really drunk during that run and doesn't remember anything...

PORTLAND, Oregon — On the second night in a row of vandalism and protests outside the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct, two neighbors—both in their 70s—stood up against protesters responsible for the destruction. “Wednesday night they broke windows, it was a real mess,” said 73-year-old Penny. By Thursday, Penny had had enough. As protesters lit a fire outside East Precinct, Penny grabbed her fire extinguisher, her homemade Black Lives Matter sign, and with the help of her walker, made her way to the precinct to put out the flames. “I'm very, very pro-Black Lives Matter,” said Penny. “But I just

If the presidential-nominating process is the weakest part of our political system, the vice-presidential selection process comes solidly in second place. Some might even argue it’s a contender for the top spot. (Snip) They may also consider it odd that Joe Biden has limited his choice to women and, apparently, to women of color. That limits the plausible picks to a very small percentage, and each of the names mentioned seems to have at least one plausible disqualifying characteristic. Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, for example, with more foreign-policy and national-security experience than the others, was the Obama administration’s

Amid the fallout from comments by former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden about a lack of diversity of thought and heritage within the African American community, some worry that a pattern of blunders could impact support within the Black community. Biden drew criticism on Thursday when he compared the diversity of African American and Latino communities at a pretaped virtual talk with the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. "What you all know, but most people don't know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is

LANSING, Mich. — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Delaware last weekend to meet with Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's first known in-person session with a potential running mate as he nears a decision. Whitmer visited Biden last Sunday, according to two high-ranking Michigan Democrats who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The first-term governor of the battleground state has long been on his short list of possible running mates. Flight records show a chartered flight left Lansing's Capital Region International Airport for Delaware Coastal Airport at 5:33 p.m.

When Susan Rice was under consideration for secretary of state in 2012, she was attacked by environmentalists for holding stock in the controversial Keystone Pipeline XL deal. Now, with the multimillionaire Rice in contention to be Joe Biden’s running mate, that investment is again drawing fire from progressives. They say her extensive past holdings in an array of industries at odds with liberal causes — particularly the Keystone investment — could make her ill-suited to be vice president in a Democratic administration. “It raises my eyebrows to think the potential vice president of the United States would have financial ties

Instead, this source said, the interview will mainly consist of technical questions. The news is sure to disappoint some of President Trump's most ardent supporters who believe Brennan and other top officials in the Obama administration

Lightfoot posted a social media showing several individuals, many of them who appeared to not be abiding by social distancing guidelines, in a grassy area near boat docks.

Writing on the 1984 vice presidential candidacy of Geraldine Ferraro ahead of Joe Biden's announcement of a female running mate, Dowd in a Saturday column wrote that it had been "36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket." That claim ignored the 2016 presidential election,

The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
