A lot of talk about the old Dem circular firing squad forming up. Good times. Here is what professional DC Democrats and Clintonites, and frauds like John Carney still don’t get. No progressive (or “Bernie Bro” if you want to try and be disparaging) is going to be scolded back into the Democratic Party as […]
Delaware United breaks down the utter fraudulence of Carney’s claims that any “sacrifice” in his proposes budget is going to be “shared”. . Our Governor is proposing a budget that is a matter of, and I quote, “shared sacrifice.” He says that to deal with our $395 million state deficit, we all must sacrifice more […]
Correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like Carson’s HB115 and 116 are entirely about bailing out a dying business that isn’t even in his district. Nobody (other than Carson, Ennis, Bushweller, Lawson, Bennett, Outten, Spiegelman and Yearick) wants to invest in retail right now. But they want to invest your tax money so […]
Another Shuttered Golf Course, More NIMBY. I’ve been around so long that I know both sides’ arguments by heart. Wilmington Riverfront Part Deux?: I’m pretty encouraged by this–as long as it doesn’t lead to further gentrification, which it could well do. Trump Stumps for Le Pen: I worry that he could be right. So Does […]
Bill-o Gone-o: An In-Depth Analysis from the Atlantic. BTW, kids, and think this through. Isn’t replacing Sean Spicer with Bill O’Reilly the ultimate Trumpian move? I think it’s gonna happen.

That’s a picture of a wall I did in my house with whitewashed reclaimed wood. It is part of a bigger project I’m calling “starting a reclaimed wood business”. Here is a link to the website. It is still pretty rough and about two weeks from going fully live. I’ve spent about $7,000 on this […]

What a recipe for political success. Decide from the very beginning of your campaign that you will make no appeal to white voters. Then stick to your plan. That was just one of the disastrous mistakes made by the Clinton campaign. 2016 was just like 2008 all over again, except with a candidate 8 years […]

Suddenly announces he’s going on vacation. Claims he’d been planning a vacation long before the NYTimes story was published. However, New York Magazine claims that his fate is very much in doubt: Embattled Fox News host Bill O’Reilly announced tonight that he is taking a vacation. O’Reilly’s decision to go off the air in the midst […]
I mean, real promising. At least in early voting and absentee voting, the D is not only outperforming the registration figures by huge margins, he is doing well enough to win the district if the day of election vote totals do only about 2/3rds as well. I know it’s early, but the early results are […]
Pro Publica (you really should contribute since it’s journalism that makes a difference), posted this story about an anti-gay obsessive from the Bush years who shipped suspected gays out from his agency, and who has resurfaced as a Trump appointee: It was one of the uglier scandals of the Bush administration: Top officials at an […]
I haven’t been around much and I don’t know how much I’m going to be a round for a while. I love the blog and love all of you, but I also just left a cushy job that was easy and gave me a lot of time to blog. Now I’m in the sink or swim world putting bread on the table and it has occupied all of my time. (In terms of finding something that can focus your mind, I highly recommend panic.)
Thank’s to Nemski and El Som for keeping it going. I think there is a pressing need for DelawareLiberal in the media landscape of this state. Whatever happens I hope it goes on and on and the tens of commenters keep commenting, and thousands of lurkers keep lurking.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Delaware Republican Party. (Remember these are the despicable pieces of shit that Carney wants to work with.)

Could be. Following a NYTimes report that O’Reilly has paid out $13 mill (and counting) to settle sexual harassment claims, advertisers are bailing out of his show. En Masse: At least 15 companies have pulled advertising from Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” after revelations that several women have accused host Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment. Following […]

I wanted to share something today as a celebration of sorts. We won yesterday. Coons held his nerve. The fact that his remarks were politically measured is irrelevant. Let me be perfectly clear, I fully expect Neil Gorsuch to be the next Associate Justice on the US Supreme Court. That’s also irrelevant.
We showed some spirit. That’s promising because we’re going to need to do that about every two weeks into the foreseeable future. As you may have noticed yesterday, in this space but buried deep in the Third Circle of the comments section, I’m already onto Carney re: HB 110. Fuck it, I say every Democrat and Independent in the US Congress run a total blockade until they pass Medicaid for all. We’re going lose all these, but we’re going to show some bloody pride. Real pride. Not for Twitter or TV.
So, anyway, last week I submitted an Op-Ed that didn’t get published (aka., rejected without comment) in support of this last little scrap. I’ll share it with you all. Be a glutton for punishment. Revel in it. It’s character building.
Delaware’s Senator Chris Coons could well hold the key to the success or failure of the filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch. He could determine whether the nominee of an illegitimate president will occupy the seat that was stolen from Merrick Garland by Rethuggery. Coons, of course, is wavering. (“They call me the Waverer, […]
I guess it was bound to happen. The cranky old a-holes feel empowered and disinhibited about running on racist themes thanks to Trump’s win. In spite of the click bait-y header (Meet Delaware’s Donald Trump: John Di Mondi), this News Journal piece by Xerxes Wilson does a fairly good job not turning John Di Mondi […]
People are saying that Pete will not run again. According to the indirect source, Pete didn’t like campaigning in either the primary or general election. If that’s true, Don Peterson is a hero. I agree with the tipster. Don Peterson was already my hero for undertaking to expose Pete Schwartzkopf. If Pete quits because he […]
…they start with a tip to the DL tipline.
A person close to Simpler says that he is NOT running for treasurer in 2018. And that he does plan on running against Carney for governor in 2020.
Also – I’ve heard that if Simpler doesn’t run for Tres. look for Kathy McGuiness to run for that office. Could Ken be so generous as to give Park City a running start? Simpler is rumored to be a big supporter of KMcG and in looking at her facebook page, she’s planning on running for something.
