About Milt Shook

A writer with more than 45 years in the political game (and let's face it, it is a game). I am a liberal because facts have a liberal bias, and I really like facts. If you like facts, you'll like this blog. If not, you'll have a hard time.

4 Days Left: Republicans are Losing Because They’re Not Mainstream, Part I

10 to Go: After the Nightmare…

If you’re not sick of this shit, I wonder where you’re living. Politics in the United States of America has become a joke, and it’s not entirely about Donald Trump. While he is absolutely the worst President we have ever … Continue reading

16 Days to Go: The Progressive Thing to Do is to Support Biden

Every day, I see/hear about some self-proclaimed “progressive who comes up with an excuse as to why he (it’s usually a white guy, not many women) “can’t” vote for Joe Biden. Seriously, in 2020, where the only viable choices for … Continue reading

17 Days to Go: End the Politics of Stupid, Part II

As I said yesterday, this election is our opportunity to end the Politics of Stupid, once and for all. And don’t say we can’t do it. Our parents and grandparents did so in 1932, when the inaction of the GOP … Continue reading

18 Days to Go: End the Politics of Stupid, Part I

There is simply no excuse for still wanting to vote for Donald J. Trump in 2020. When you look at the damage he’s done in the four years since he became “president,” there is plenty there to prevent you from … Continue reading

Less Than 3 Weeks: The GOP Wants US to Promise “No Court Packing”? Huh?

I’ve already voted, and I have already checked to make sure the vote was counted, which it was. You’re welcome. You should do the same, if you can. No matter what Lord Donny says, mail-in voting is safe. Even if … Continue reading
