There is a lot of political demand for fake news and outright lies, because the truth is too lame and boring.

True.

There is great potential for an SNL skit out there where they all promise increasingly impossible things to supporters. COuld be really funny.

As I've always said. We have no evidence that Kavanaugh drunkenly groped Blasey Ford. However, there was a bunch of other behavior that Kavanaugh exhibited that would indicate that he was capable of impulsively doing something like that.

Maybe there is some debauchery in Mayor Pete's past that the right can drudge up, but please don't totally make it up.

He's got everything desirable for a Democrat politician which they don't have.
For a change, I sort of agree with you. While we may not be "scared, bigly" as you say, I do think Pete has some very winnable attributes. He is young, energetic, intelligent as Hell, sort of a modern JFK. He is a lot like AOC in many respects, someone to be watched.

Not sure if America is ready to accept a gay man in that position, but I hope we have evolved enough to vote on substance, as opposed to things like his sexual preferences. If he doesn't do it this time, I think he will be in there again in the future.
