Primarily Speaking

Welp, I can't even believe that it's time to start another election cycle of Primarily Speaking, because I still haven't recovered from the last presidential election, but here we are.

A couple of Democratic primary stories worthy of note:

Senator Elizabeth Warren formally announced she is officially running for president on Saturday with a solid speech. Naturally, Donald Trump greeted her announcement with some racism and misogyny, and that is literally all I'm going to say about that, because I'm not giving him the space here.

Senator Amy Klobuchar also formally announced she is officially running for president on Sunday with a solid speech. Huzzah for multiple female candidates! As it should be.

Meanwhile, Rep. Seth Moulton, who tried and failed to challenge Nancy Pelosi for the speakership, says he's contemplating a run for president. Wow. Seth Moulton really thinks a lot of himself. I expect he'll soon find very few people agree.

And, in other news, Steve Schmidt, the erstwhile Republican dipshit behind Howard Schultz's attempted candidacy, stormed off his own podcast when he was asked to answer a few basic questions about how Schultz could possibly win and not just be a spoiler who hands Trump a reelection. So that's all going very well, obviously.

Talk about these things! Or don't. Whatever makes you happy. Life is short.
