This Week On The Leftorium

Items this week:

In Maryland, Democratic leaders cast their lots with incumbent Republican Governor Larry Hogan over the democratic nominee Ben Jealous. As part of a #DemocratsForHogan campaign, they’re heaping praise on Hogan’s bipartisanship and sensible leadership while attacking Jealous’s proposals as radical and irresponsible.

Dozens of Democrats are endorsing Md.’s Republican governor. Will it matter?

House dems vote yes on the Support ICE bill.

The Leftorium Playlist:


If you like the idea of a place for leftist politics and leftist-adjacent pop culture and good faith debates about such things (no bullshit, no tired mainstream-media-fueled narratives), we like you too and we would love to have you on as contributor. With only three contributors currently, we’re pretty small right now and hoping to change that. And that’s where you come in. Whatever you’re interested in, under-appreciated leftist tendencies, underlying messages in the media we’re fed everyday, obscure tv shows and comedies that never got their due, we would like to hear what you have to say in your own words. We would like to build a community with you and we hope that, seeing what you’ve seen of us so far, you’d like to build a community with us. Please indicate to us in the comments that you’re interested in being a contributor.
