Why It’s The Right Time for President Pete Buttigieg

All I Want for Christmas is Pete Buttigieg to Forgive My “Rules of the Road” Violations
I consider Pete Buttigieg a modern American hero. He is as flawed as the rest of us, but controls his deficits better than most. As some attack him for being born with advantages, the smart people realize he’s made the most of the opportunities presented him. He possesses full control of his sexual orientation narrative, and has converted it into pure power in a profession where it has been historically weaponized by others into weakness. ...Continue Reading

How Did All the “Not Pete Buttigieg” Candidates Fare in the December Debate?

What it Means That Michael Harriot and Pete Buttigieg Sat Together and Talked About Racism
This kind of thing certainly isn’t uncommon: an attack on a campaigning politician by an American political writer. It is, after all, the heated period of time we like to call “Primary Season.” And in most cases, the story would have ended there. But this story was about to have its first twist. ...Continue Reading

So to save you time, and me a headache, here's a helpful list of every misdeed, transgression, error, lapse, booboo and oops-a-daisy mistake Mayor Pete has ever made in his entire life.
From using permanent markers on the whiteboard to wearing Hammer Pants in the 1990s, you'll find it all here.

What it Means That Everyone and The Horse They Rode In On is Going After Pete Buttigieg
If Lindsey Graham doesn’t have to read the impeachment transcripts, I don’t have to read any “breaking news” about Pete Buttigieg talking too loud at a movie, eating sushi with a fork, or forgetting to put down the seat. ...Continue Reading
The Gift of Pete Buttigieg to the American Voter
For all the moments in this country people cry out, “We need to talk about race!” we should be relieved to have a leader who is willing to charge into the racial headwinds as bravely as Pete Buttigieg. ...Continue Reading
