The surprise threat!
btw, apparently Democrats love to yell & Las Vegas is filling in Joe Biden's chair.
FFS CNN; if you can't handle the traffic at least you could have a clever message accompanying that spinning wheel of doom....
if the boxing intro wasn't appalling enough, CNN's Twitter Moment is a bingo card which features "the metric system"? #DemDebate #ffs
Is Bernie's brother Larry doing commentary anywhere?
i wish Hillary could just own that changing her mind is a positive-it shows she thinks!
Bernie warms my little socialist heart:)
I know Denmark; I love Denmark-we are no Denmark.
BTW, Obama was unelectable. And, if T-rump is considered a serious candidate, why is CNN asking if Sanders is "unelectable"?
I may not agree with Sanders on guns, but I trust him on the end goal & on understanding the process it takes to get there
I bet all of the Democratic candidates could place Syria correctly on a map...
There are many things to be said about old white men; unelectable is not one of them.
benghazi bingo
Bernie, having spent most of his career as a Senator, comes across as a collaborator who believes leading & governing is about compromise.
The rest of the candidates seem to believe governing is about asserting power & leading by force.
Though I do love that none of these men can (successfully) interrupt Hillary.
Bernie is just not full of shit.... #DemDebate
In regards to regulating Wall St, there is no one less believable than Hillary... #DemDebate
I love how Hillary looks on in grudging admiration every time Bernie says what she wished she lacked the relationships to say. #DemDebate
Hillary is not an outsider; that's why she is powerful & capable; I wish she'd own that too..
"The Secretary is right." #DemDebate
The Secretary is wrong
Can you really trust a politician who either won't admit they tried drugs or chose not to so they could run for office decades later?
Especially in terms of making drug policy & criminal justice reform?
BTW: Hillary will choose a VP who brings her more not OMalley...maybe Bernie might, but wtf would he want to be her VP?
Forget her rivals, Hillary ought to ask Kanye to be her VP..
Bernie is far less unelectable than Barack was..if he wins, I hope he selects Elizabeth Warren..but if he loses, Castro or Booker will be VP
Since Bernie does have a brother Larry, maybe @GarryShandling can win him the election?
If Oprah got Obama one million votes...
Given CNNs fightstyle intro, I expected their focus group to use ClockworkOrange(or at least Google style)eyetracking. & track # of eyerolls
(Btw-either Secretary or Rep Castro (who were my HLS classmates) would be an amazing VP for Hillary:) (Feel bad about my character limiting)
at first, it bothered me that the media invented the T-rump candidacy & ignored (or dubbed unelectable) SandSA6G
but maybe being dubbed an unelectable socialist (& thus given less attention) is how Bernie Sanders, like his predecessor, gets elected.,
Maybe CNN's obvious blindness to their complicity & capitalist bias actually helps Sanders-& lets him take socialism back from FoxNews?
And, also: has anyone studied the impact of calling Obama "socialist" & "unelectable" on voter behavior etc? Could this help Sanders win?
Silly, but: I'd love to know how often Obama wears a bulletproof suit. And, if Hillary has any bulletproof pants suits yet?
8 years ago, I did not think Obama could win-nor would I have believed that we'd today have marriage equality, legal marijuana or Obamacare!
BTW Happy Ada Lovelace folks & thanks for inspiring me. Also, dammit CNN, yet another missed opportunity to discuss gender in the #DemDebate
Very smart for Hillary to suggest her VP will be Secretary Castro before the primaries; what would hurt Bernie more?
As much as I'd like for Sanders to choose Warren, I doubt it'd have the same effect. If only he could convince Rep Castro to betray his twin
I still think Hillary'll chose Sec Castro...but if Warren was her VP, she'd win back Bernie diehards & my…hR46
I'm dubious Warren would say yes; I'm not sure she'd be willing to defend & promote Hillary's policies...nonetheless I can dream:)
Discomfited by Hillary's institutionalism & its correlated hawkishness, I'd be a lot more keen if her VP appealed to Sanders voters.
So...I'm still dubious that Warren would be willing to put aside her views to support Hillary as her VP...but it seems to be scaring T-rump.
I still think Hillary'll chose Julian Castro or maybe Tom Perez for VP...why lose a Senate seat? (or have policy disagreements?)
Bummed she didn't choose either Castro or Perez, but, I guess whatever, the job of the VP is to agree with & serve as backup to POTUS.

@katiezavadski “F---ing Sith Lord,” “Horrific Leakers,” & “Berserkazoid Craziness”: The Mooch Recalls His Brief Shining Fortnight at the Center of US Politics, by @WilliamCohan… Wish he’d been asked about🇷🇺sanctions, RDIF & if he now supports what he opposed at #WEF17?
This is something, coming from a guy who missed the birth of his child—& had his lawyer demand a paternity test?

Does suing CNN & forcing a journo to resign for accurate reporting have permanent benefits?
World chess body has Swiss bank accounts frozen after (Putin-linked) president is accused of links to ISIS oil deals… After @Kasparov63 failed to have him removed, maybe Team Spectre decided enough was enough—& this was the only way to take back the org?

As per ⬆️, an excellent post by @katiezavadski, examining RDIF & Dmietiev! And a great thread follows. Hope to see Scaramucci, Thiel & Goldman Sachs looped in, just in time for Davos!
@katiezavadski So T-rump, Scaramucci & Mnuchin are going to #WEF2018. What about Schwarzman, Bonderman, Black & or WEF Young Global Leaders Dmietriev & Thiel? Or Milner? Is there an RDIF reunion scheduled?

Also, out of curiousity, any chess tourneys or events scheduled?
@katiezavadski Wonder if Scaramucci can get another reporter canned for accurately reporting on what he said in public at #WEF, like he did last year? Or were his legal threats to CNN enough to prevent anyone from taking the risk? Are the Mooch & Thiel now press-proof?

Thinking a lot lately about the VIPization of American culture & how its displaced the notion of equality. Curious about when this started..
I'd like to read a history of VIP sections:)When did they become mainstream/acceptable/legitimate? How are they justified to kids?Any recs?
By legitimizing VIP sections, the #loligarchy has commoditized inequality & aspiration & even my hypocrisy;) Can't we do & build better?

So, some dude in Bristol Farms just asked me if I was in #HatefulEight - his wife thought I was Jennifer Jason Leigh! #flattered #yearmade 💗
I clicked on this because I am vain, but loved this interview with Jennifer Jason Leigh…
just remembered: years ago, in Thailand, a couple said they thought they recognized me from the movie SingleWhiteFemale.Was I Bridget Fonda?

Why is O'Malley still running? There is no way a white man will be either Hillary's (Castro) or Bernie's (Warren?) choice for VP. #DemDebate
"You'll be very happy...I'll let you talk then" #shhhO'Malley
I still wouldn't recognize O'Malley if I saw him in the supermarket. #DemDebate

yes...which is why the OpenAI team's lack of diversity is so discomfiting....
Long @NewYorker profile on Bostrom & the state of AI; not a single woman (unnamed wife aside) mentioned or quoteILtp
If OpenAI is not committed to offering open access to their data, is the "Open" just sqLi4KSCoJ
