Us are taking forceful stances against the state's new election law which includes several voting restrictions following weeks of pressure from voting rights advocates.

"However, you're joining us. We're happy you're here. I'm gonna so hair Republican strategist Brian Robinson and Democratic strategist Karen Johnson or back. Welcome to you both guys. Thank you. Good to be here. Great to have you And it is also good to have W. Abe political reporter Emma hurt with US. She has been covering the Gold dome from beginning of a session to end along with a meal. Moffett, Christopher Alston and others from the WSB news team. Emma. Welcome to you. Thanks, Dennis. Glad to be here for brunch. Yeah, we are there. My most sense. Uh, off off camera? Yes. Yeah. Andre. We should point out that because Emma is traveling here. If you're watching on our Facebook page, you're seeing a picture of her. Um Emma. Let's start right in with the voting bill after Delta Airlines CEO at Bastion blasted the new state voting law as unacceptable. The statehouse quickly passed a measure to end Delta's fuel sales tax credit that it's had often on for years. Of that retaliatory move did not pass the Senate. What, exactly Where the dynamics here? Yeah, You know, we started hearing rumblings of retaliation after adult has really strong statement yesterday because it caught Republican lawmakers by surprise. They say the governor has said, the speaker said, and I've heard from others that Delta was Regularly involved in the conversations as this long was being written and never had such strong opposition and worked with lawmakers on that bill. And then all of a sudden this statement comes out and Politicians were like, Wait a minute. I thought we thought we talked about this guy's on D s. O e. I heard mixed things is gonna happen, Is it not? And it turns out, you know, it was both the house took up this measure your right and it was a very last minute amendment. State representative Sam Watson was reading his bill about related to tax credits and listing the changes. And at the end he goes. Oh, and on July 1st. We're going to start collecting jet fuel taxes in Georgia, and I yield. Well, thank you. And they had to vote immediately. And you know, a Democrat called it out as retaliation right there. What the Senate did not go for this this measure ultimately in time. It's still alive for next year, I'll say, but it was It was, you know, I felt like I was watching like a family squabble and I feel like you all can speak to this better in terms of the history of Delta's relationship with the Gold dome. But there was really the sense of Trail. I mean, speaker, Ralston said. I mean, they like our policies when it benefits them. And then they come out and say this, you know, they should know better. Don't you know? Don't feed the dog that bites your hand was his explanation of why They would do this or try to do this. I'm sure at Bastion is happy with that analogy. But Tharon let me bring you into this. And Emma on Brian feel free to add as well. We heard that Ed Bastian issued that statement after meetings with African American community and political leaders. Is that your understanding as well? Yeah, I think that, um you know, a bastion has been one Dennis that has been very outspoken since he's become the cap. I'm sorry to Delta CEO. So you should stay in the cab Countess CEO Michael Thurman. I'm so sorry about that it but I think what was interesting is that Delta really realize that They needed to really do some more soul searching and really talk to more people. And so yes, there were some meetings that we had. I do know that Congresswoman the Cayman Williams posted that she had had conversations with Delta. The majority of the airport is in her district, the other partisan in Clayton County. And so I think that they had to make sure that they listen to everyone. Get all sides But I just want to command the Delta CEO for coming out speaking strongly against this bill, and he used to turn unacceptable. Hey, said it was based on a lie. And so I think that those are the things that is what I've been saying on this podcast for weeks that it was a false narrative and also said, And, you know, be a little time to Brian for weeks that Mork corporations were going to speak up. More corporations were feeling the pressure and a lot of people listen to the podcast. Civil work. Who? These corporations where they're coming from there. How do you know where you're starting to see Microsoft Coca Cola Delta and I believe that you will Seymour Maura as we begin this sort of legal challenge. To try to really figure out this confusion with this new voting law. I'm Brian. You and Karen and I will get into this more once we finish this recap with Emma, but very quickly just some initial thoughts on what the dynamics were on that final day with the corporations, particularly Delta. Well, everybody was at the table before the final day. There are the date there at the table, talking about the bill and many Democrats, you know, and even here there and sat on the on the podcast a few weeks ago, when this past, you know, the bill got to a good place and overtime. This national media narrative began to take over and it's one that went from a fact based debate to a fact free debate. And now governor camp is out there courageously trying to tell the truth about what this does. And I am flabbergasted. I have never seen, uh Anything quite like this before. Where? You know in these statements yesterday coming out against the new laws already been signed. No one could really point it anything to back up these wild assertions. Because there's nothing in the bill that restricts voting and we will get into that a little more in just a couple of minutes. But Emma to come back to you. There were a couple of things that also did not happen, in addition to getting rid of the fuel sales tax credit for Delta The gun rights bill did not pass. House Speaker David Ralston has some have some thoughts about the dynamics behind that, too. But real quickly tell us what that bill would have done and then tell us what the speaker said about what happened to it. Right. It was a bill that would, um establish reciprocity between gun license for gun license holders and other states to come in and carry legally and Georgia. And it was scheduled. You know, it just needed one final stamp of approval. But Speaker Ralston, he said they ran out of time. But he also said, You know, I'm very aware that we're just a couple weeks out from Horrible mess. The horrible shootings that we we saw here in Atlanta and and elsewhere recently and that we want to be really careful about this kind of thing in that climate, and you know, he said, I think this house is on very much on the record as being supportive of gun rights. But this measure, you know the optics to him. Seems like it seems like that that held up the spills final passage this year. So in other words, he's not ruling out that I could come back next year when to use that often use where the optics or different was that really the problem rather than anything else? That's what he said. That's what he said. He said. There's definitely more time you know we can. We can take it back up. It's a two year session so nothing is dead yet. Sports betting didn't make it either. What happened there? Right. It's like that ongoing saga. Are they gonna do it or they're not gonna do it. Do they have the votes? Do they not have the votes? Because it's not. It wasn't the straight partisan issue right? There are some Republicans that didn't like it. Some Democrats and didn't like it. And so you know, people pushing a bill needed to round up votes from both sides. It seems like while it was scheduled for a vote, the bill version as opposed to the Constitutional Amendment version, which is the new ones that Any way we can get into all of that. But there was some pushback from Democrats. I think after the voting law, some withholding of votes as a result of that, and they couldn't seem to get the votes in time, but Speaker Austin again said No, we can still come back on..

"A good Sunday morning. If there was any question about who the Democratic Front runner is Bernie Sanders says put that to rest. Sanders won a smashing victory yesterday. And the Vada caucuses lapping the competition with the votes with more votes. Still to be counted. Here's where the Nevada caucus stands right now with sanders more than doubling the competition. This powerful showing in a diverse state. We'll give sanders huge momentum as the race moves to South Carolina on Saturday and then to the Super Tuesday states in just nine days sanders was already thinking ahead last night in the Super Tuesday state of Texas in Nevada. Where you're just put together a multi generational multi racial coalition which is going to not only win in Nevada. It's gonNA sweep this country. Sanders indeed won a smashing across the board victory. According to our entrance poll he won among men and women college graduates and non college graduates liberals and moderate slash conservative union and nonunion members people who decided early and people who decided late in short sanders crushed and doing so he may have crushed the hopes of democratic establishment desperate to stop the enthusiasm among sanders. Supporters is matched by trepidation among other Democrats who fear that sanders not only lose to president trump but will take down the House majority in any chance of winning back the Senate as well while the two sides and the party disagree over the merits of a sanders nomination. They do agree on this. After a narrow loss in Iowa and wins in New Hampshire and Nevada Bernie Sanders is now the odds on favorite to be the Democratic nominee. Joining me now. Is John Ralston? He's editor the Nevada Independent. Our go to guy for Nevada politics and since we don't have all the vote in John we begin with you. Look at. Let's start with how big sanders win. Was I wanNA put some key groups sixty I mean? He was powered by young voters. Hispanic voters very liberal. And those who support a medicare for all but I wanNA focus specifically on Latino voters John Because he made huge inroads there chuck. He didn't just make inroads there. Remember that the Culinary Union which is the largest political force in the Democratic Party and is made up of at least half Hispanics was very anti Bernie and it's in its messaging. They didn't endorse anybody. Bernie Sanders went into all those culinary union strongholds in the casinos and he won almost every one showing that he went beyond their messaging made his pitch about what you saw him say in Texas Multi Racial Coalition and he won in most of the casinos. Chuck where have all of these Hispanic Workers? What does that say about the power of the union leadership or was this a reminder why they decided not to endorse essentially against sanders? Endorse another candidate for fear that their endorsement might be hollow. Yeah I think I think. It's both actually chuck. I think there's always a not always but often a disconnect between what union leadership does and how the rank and file feel. It's not just what the Culinary Union and Bernie Sanders campaign had already made incursions into the Culinary Union had recruited. Some of those folks but listen the culinary union leaders are not dumb. They saw what was happening in this state. I had nice words for Joe Biden. But they saw what happened in New Hampshire. They saw that his campaign here was not nearly as organized as Bernie Sanders is so and a lot of Biden. Folks got upset with this analogy that I use chuck. They were not going to get on board. The titanic after it hit the iceberg. Ouch I want to put up from our entrance? Poll among moderate and conservative voters in Nevada and here sanders in Biden essentially tied among a modern considering a lot of these non white voters didn't call themselves liberal called themselves more modern conservative lot of Hispanics Lot of African Americans and they still ended up supporting Bernie Sanders. Listen I think that moderates and slightly to the right of Center. Democrats are still flailing about right. Truck they don't know which of these non Bernie candidates to choose and so that splits up that vote and that allows Bernie Sanders to even do well in that cohort. Is it going to be Mayor Pete? Is IT GOING TO BE ELIZABETH WARREN? Even Amy Klobuchar and so they all split up that vote that is part of the reason beyond his phenomenal organization and his messaging to young people that Bernie Sanders now. The clear front runner in the race. Joe Biden said he had a dope. Biden's campaign calling Their their performance a strong second-place finish not all the votes are counted. Is it possible? Buddha judge passes him for second place. Well let me let me tell you chuck. I think it's too close to call right now. I. I don't know what the Democratic Party is doing. I gave them the benefit of the doubt. This isn't a little league game where it looks like someone so far ahead you just stop playing so we really don't know but I'll tell you this my reporter. Megan Master Lee has obtained a letter from the Buddha judge campaign they are. They've sent a letter to the state. Democratic Party alleging all kinds of errors and inconsistencies. Which of course you'd expect Surena caucus but they they want to position themselves obviously is having finished in second place so they can say it's them and Bernie because that's how it's been in the three states but listen I gonNa Brag are you Joe Biden or people who did. You'RE GONNA Brag about finishing more than two to one behind Bernie Sanders that rings hollow to normal human beings. I think I don't think this is one thousand nine hundred four where Gary Hart can lose by thirty and declare victory As he did one. Time in Iowa John Ralston Our Man in Nevada editor of the Nevada Independent. Thanks for coming on much. Appreciate it as I said before. It's getting very late very early. For Democrats who WANNA stop Bernie Sanders from running away with the nomination with a National Primary Day just nine days away going to win across the country Sanders now leads in national polls by double digits and as a head in Super Tuesday states like California which will award four hundred fifteen pledged delegates on March third and the only narrowly trails Biden in a new South Carolina.

"Hundreds of thousands of stuff can go wrong but this year they have this totally different process and Megan will tell you I. They are the messaging on what they listened. They got screwed by Iowa. They had to revamp everything in erected infrastructure but their messaging. They're dribbling out of information. I think has made people even more suspect Iraq. That is because that's what I would do us. Yes same thing. That's why they wo- they at the time you're like. Are they hiding something? And now we're like something and that's what happens when piece of context. I WanNa add to though. Is that up until Iowa party had been very transparent with me I. I'd been done a ton of reporting on what the caucus process is going to look like. You know they walked me through the nitty gritties of how we didn't have. We didn't get to see the APP at that point but they walk me through the details of how that was supposed to work up until Iowa. They had revealed these details. They'd actually been training their volunteers on the APP. Unlike Iowa people are getting it a couple of days before But actually you know. They had to re overhaul their entire caucus process in eleven days before early voting. And that that's no small feat. I just it's the it's making the early vote work with the same day. Vote that could complicate things. At least at least the the giving us the result might not be that simple calculation to do for. Volunteers is because they have the ranked choice if it was just one person. One vote wouldn't be that hard but you gotTa make sure you have okay. This person's not viable. Then you've got to go down to the second choice. You GotTa make sure they're in the right precent and they gotta make sure that they're in the right person. I think they're more likely to get that right but then when it gets there. It's like okay. What do we do this viable? Let's go through? What's the likelihood that Sunday morning? I'm going before I get to my interviews. I gotTa go to John Ralston in Las Vegas when getting results. Well you should always go to John Ralston in Las Vegas. I can yes every Sunday. I'm going to be asking you where the results on Sunday morning. I'd say fifty fifty. Wow Yeah I think so too. I mean they've certainly done a lot. I I've seen the new caucus calculator tool they're using. I got to see it last night and it appears functional but like John was mentioning. There's a lot on the back end of just processing all these early votes into that system. And does everything end up where it should be and if it does great it'll work perfectly but we don't know all right. I'M GONNA wrap it up here before we go I there is no partnership. I'm prouder to have right now than the Nevada independent because of John. What you're trying to do. It's it's nonprofit journalism but it's basically dollar in dollar out. This is people powered. Explain what you're doing out here because like our listeners. The care about journalism to be Japan This is really a labor of Love Chuck. It's the best thing I've ever done to it.

"ralston" Discussed on NBC Meet the Press
"On the fallout from the big debate. Let's talk about the front runner. Mr Sanders you know. He he was ready with an aggressive very aggressive. Lines of attack on Bloomberg He fought back against everything Tell me why he didn't have a good. I felt like he has good of a debate performances secret ahead. I think he did as well. That was my takeaway. He I mean he's strong. I think he's always strong with when he's attacked for being socialist or we even heard a Mike Bloomberg go into communism suggests that this is a sliding path communism and that you know the US and other countries had figured out. That didn't work. But I think Bernie's always strong on on the response with that right. He has prepared. Barron about it for thirty five exactly. So he's he's prepared. He knows what to expect. I thought he had a great debate. Performance I did. I'd listen. Let me let me tell you one thing about burning and I've always thought chuck but being up stages different point of view of seeing the candidates when others are talking a you know what there is even Bernie as caricatured as this curmudgeon and this guy's always yelling and pointing in everything. He smiles so much when people said something and then he puts a finger up and he's like come on and he Bernie has a good time during debates. This is why President Right. He was once the stage to tell everybody about Medicare for all the Democratic Socialism. Care so much about what we're saying. Chuck our perceptions here and this was my perception at the end. Is I started thinking about it before doing this. Podcast which is I think we can say that almost everybody up there and maybe accept Bloomberg having pretty good performance. Look it it. Maybe they're going to probably try to sell. Its first time any will have that but nobody meet suddenly the pressures on him in the next debate to show. You've got something I mean. You know we talked about the forty million dollars and I was a bit snarky and I said well new COQ had about Lada. Big MARKETING BUDGET TO NEWCO. The little bit before your time my politics. John and I think and then and then and then the consumers gotta taste and they didn't like well consumers of the Democratic Party got a taste of Michael Bloomberg and look. We'll see I he. He didn't come across as somebody who's proud to be a democrat. He came across somebody who simply offering his billions to help. The Democrats went right exactly and I think we have talked about that right. He meant he specifically mentioned that. I've spent my money to help the Democratic Party that I mean that was one of his points and it's like this philanthropic endeavor that he's engaging that's how he's characterizing right as his running for president The interesting thing I thought about Bloomberg. He clearly had responses for all of the questions. He's he expected right whether that was you know. Stop and Frisk or redlining or the allegations of harassment within his company but to me they didn't come off that strong right like he answered the questions but did he do himself any favors and the way that he answered that. He's calling those debates denise humanoid and that's what I'm saying he didn't look like he wanted to be there now. I don't think he had like the worst performance now history but I do think there are some moments in that debate Whether it comes across as condescending you didn't want to be there I don't know but here's what's going to happen on Warren saw Lake Lake a Predator who and went after on the. Nba's is ready to do that. And he said some things that are going to get him in trouble in a mate he made because they all said just you know. Biden went after two. All you have to release them from their from their and his repeated refusal to do that is whether it's fair or not is going to make people society that was Biden's one of his stronger moments that I didn't expect from him right when you know. We all expected Elizabeth Warren to do what she did with him on his and he goes re released him and he was very plain spoken about it it was. You could feel it was a nice moment. He commanded the room for. Yeah I mean I think the line he had something to the effect of Do these did these women in signing this really want to not tell their story. That was the point he was getting. You know because that was the point that Bloomberg made on the stage right was that. Oh these it. He's the word consensual at these engaging consensually and that somehow these NDA's were protecting the women and this was information they didn't want to get out and Joe Biden directly after that point and said. Do you really think that was the goal. Do think that is really what these women wanted. And signing the agreements. So what's going to happen here? Let's move to Saturday. John First of all look. I'm a skeptic of bit bit of a skeptic of what turned I was going to be. I'm stunned by the early vote. And what is what. Does that mean for Saturday. I think Megan and I are stunned. Both stunned by a to Listen we've been talking the whole time About whether this is going to cannibalize their caucus people don't want to go to a caucus and so everyone went out to to to early. The data titus claiming. It's all old people. Don't WANNA stand in line on Saturday She thinks it's good for Biden. I of course I listened. Bernie's campaign clearly thinks that large turnout is good from this as a lot of their at least for the first batch of turnout looks like there was a lot of new voters. Meaning voters didn't turn out in eight or sixteen those like Bernie people to me. I think there's an important point on that. In that early vote I think stands to help Bernie Sanders perhaps more than the other candidates because these are may be low propensity voters younger voters voters of color. Who are not familiar with the party process. Who Don't WANNA show up to a caucus room and do this. All you have to show up and vote just like you get to pick your top four. It's it's more fun right. I did very well here. In in in twenty sixteen within five or six into Hillary after trailing by twenty five points and he had no organization. He just had all that energy and wasn't organized this time. He's got the organization and the energy due to the two campaigns. I'm curious about because they do have both good organizations. One is worn in one. Is Buddha CH- are they going to overperform yes? Warren landed earliest on the ground. Here she was the first one to have staff up in Nevada has since been surpassed significantly by the other campaigns burning. Yeah more than one. Yes so so so Bernie Sanders children. Fifty plus staffers Biden only recently increased the size of the staff to about one hundred and thirty but People does seem had about one hundred people on the ground or instill has only about fifty going into the caucus but they're they're smart operation. They've been calculated and the organizing that they have been doing so I still think they have a really good team and still have a really good shot here. You mentioned people to judge. He was another one who obviously kind of picked up fire picked up. Steam during the race Scott his fundraising numbers and then was able to staff up in Nevada. Starting over the summer and has since built at an incredible team and I think the the calculation there is what happens in Iowa. What happens in New Hampshire? And if he did well in those two states and they would have. They would have the operation to capture the winter sales and clearly. That is happening. I I did not expect him to do as well. In Hampshire's he did he clearly at an organization. 'cause he he stopped the bleeding that amy caught him and only that he clearly was literally but for Amy Klobuchar. He wins the New Hampshire primary. So I'm not underestimating people to digest here. That's Ashra Listen Megan's right. He hasn't formidable operation artery as some people really know what they're doing and their whole premise is what Megan said. And it didn't look like it at the time When he first set it up I do all in Iowa. I do well in New Hampshire. Then I even though I'm only in single digits in Nevada. The momentum going to be with me and that matters much more than delegates in the early going chuck and so so. He's going to harness that I still think Th that he has a chance to do very well but I think that the the after Bernie crowd in the race it's still somewhat muddled and they all have something to be energized about after tonight. I'm with you. I mean only Bloomberg has some explaining to do. Everybody else has some moment. They could point to go feel good here. It's almost like Bloomberg. Was this release valve for the rest of the guys. They just cable and in some ways to Bloomberg has time to make up for okay if he had an average debate performance. He has time to make up for that because he's not on the ballot this contest coming up on Saturday the Buddha just compared to the other ones to an e and this is even true of Amy Klobuchar to some extent when I first started in TV chuck. I'm sure you're it's a hot medium you don't you don't have to be so hot. And he is so cool When he's he'll smile and and he'll come back in and it's I think it's pretty probably comes across as pretty effective on television. Compared to you know Biden gets upset and even the reason why older voters love. Yeah Yeah and he's the television Canada. I completely agree. He's the he's the most he's the easiest going person right as well spoken sharp. They liked that. He's I always joke. It's what old people want millennials to be. You know that's good grandsons. Nice Nice young man you know which of course drives me crazy. The one thing I was thinking about as this debate was going on was realizing I don't I don't know if there's room for Amy Klobuchar if she doesn't finish in the top three Acre yeah I I. I've thought the same thing about she's got a lot of I. I sort of feel bad about that in that you know it. Just she just feels like the one that's GonNa get dealt out. I put her attitude is really something that we all know politics where they can fake it but I ran it though. Amy Kosher at some. You know zero dark thirty I was doing for MSNBC and she were to too and she was just so happy. And and but I am mega mega knows more. I don't think she has enough of an organization here to do well in a caucus you've got a lot of money on TV. Try to her name wreck up but she does have one. She just started up in November. Which is no time at all out of class. You need to organize who's left a higher right. Well she's now. She's brought in her organizers from Iowa so they know how to run a caucus but they have not been organizing for the Nevada Caucus. And I think that's GonNa be a problem. Even though talking to voters people like her they liked her. You know the dwell on. I thought she'd be better than expected in Iowa. Did well in New Hampshire and social have some momentum. I don't know that's enough. I read my Flash Day. I read my glad to hear you. A little snarky about the national media coverage of Kocsis do you think we're over hyping? The potential for problems. No you're not or is it legit. There's not there is a potential for you GE- problems because number one it's a caucus and you can have. It's run by..
"ralston" Discussed on 1947: The Meet the Press Podcast
"Vegas on Chuck Todd and this is the Chuck Todd Cat. I've just come off the state from the ninth democratic debate apologies. If you hear some background noise tonight was easily the most heated one yet. The biggest source of fire out of the gate was Elizabeth Warren. Who named check Oliver Fellow candidates and put her debate skills to use. But will that bigger out of the whole she's in after a week vanish in neighboring state of New Hampshire. We shall see Michael Bloomberg has been sucking the oxygen out of the race ever since his entry and he qualified for the stage just yesterday other candidates such as Amy Klobuchar been itching for the opportunity to quote. Beat them on the debate stage since they couldn't beat on the Airways did she. Succeed will join me backstage or two great journalists from the Nevada independent our partner Our local partner here for this debate editor John Ralston. Who was also join me in moderating tonight and twenty twenty reporter. Megan mess early. Welcome to you both John. No offense to your eye but any Meghan you have you have. The cleanest is on this debate. John and I were just talking when you're sitting up on the desk. It's amazing what you miss. 'cause you're you're so focused. So He's going to ask you. What are the three headlines Right? Which actually John. What are you gonNA ask her that? She's got a report tonight. Yeah what's the lead? Megan yeah well. I have my notes right here. If you WANNA WANNA take a look at that. There were three things jumped out to me. Obviously Elizabeth Warren completely different debate performance. From the one that we I think New Hampshire right Going after CONAN's yeah fight up on health care amy. She was very complimentary toward amy clip. Turn the last debate New Hampshire when after her several times and the climate change conversation and in the healthcare conversation referring to her plan is a post it note we got a little quip from Amy Klobuchar. Back on that That jumped out is headquartered in. Yes exactly that was hurt. That was her response And then obviously being from Nevada I was very interested in opening culinary union conversation about Senator Sanders in the fact that the union has been going after him actively encouraging their members not to support him They've been very vocal in this race and we saw that play out on the stage today on. I think it'll be really interesting to see You know how that affects the race. Right we've heard from Culinary Union members that they you know what like their healthcare they wanNA keep it and that's obviously in conflict with Senator Sanders a have to say and I think you know this too. And you you kind of intro this. I can't emphasize enough how you and I perceived everything being up there could be different hub than how beautiful John. But here's what was clear and Megan mentioned this and you did too. I thought what Warren did come out of the buck. She said right out of the gate she said listen. I'm fading in this race. I need to do something to get attention. And she she that I thought she was consistently her Elizabeth Warren that we remember as you call the fighter throughout the but was your Dickerson to me. And we haven't really talked about him him yet. What was Bloomberg? I mean? People have talked about him being thin skinned. They thought that he was GONNA GONNA LOSE IT HE DID. He did almost get there. I thought a couple a couple of times But he probably did what he what he doesn't have to do in his ads right. He actually had to talk. Have a conversation answer questions. And that's that's going to be no later. I'm glad you brought up Bloomberg I'm GonNa tackle this different ways. One is who helped themselves for Saturday. But we're GONNA set that aside because look you brought up the other elephant in the room with this debate in Michael Bloomberg. A few things jumped out at me clearly. He hadn't done this before okay. That was number one. He didn't seem as prepared as his team had led him on. Typically it you know the biggest hell. He didn't use all his time on his one. Minute closing statement. I mean you don't have your closing statement down. That doesn't sound like somebody who's prepared so you look at this. And then I thought his messaging on American needs a manager. You know John Europe political historic history. Junkie like me. The last technocrat that became the Democratic nominee. Michael Cox Right you know and and you know in theory people say they like technocrats but people. Don't people don't run to the polls for Texas. Here's what Kim Cosmonauts Meghan jump and she's used to me taking all of her time I really thought that Bloomberg was the only one up on stage. Who really didn't look like he wanted to be up on degree. They were all ready. I hate to do this. He gave me that. He gave me an at at one point because he was like upset. That heating also called onto and it was like relaxed. Dude you're going to get everybody else had energy tonight and one more thing I again. I do do the caveats about how this is seen on. Tv I'm not sure it's always you. I'd love to hear you say Meghan. I thought Joe Biden head from start to finish one of his best debates. I thought he was very focused. He delivered a message like Warren Chuck. An Megan he knows that he needs to do all in the batteries in big trouble. He took a shot at burning right at the end in his closing statement. Megan and look. We're going to get some grief because he brought up the issue of guns in the massacre here in Nevada. The bottom line is John Noses really well half of our questions. We didn't get to. Yeah okay I mean these look. They debated God bless every top. That's right God. Bless him and and in you yes. Guns have been done in a lot of debates. I'm not going to sit here and say We should have it. I wish I wish we did. But it's interesting to me that he sees it as an opportunity. Here is an opportunity. I I picked up on that throughout the whole debate right this. This Bloomberg is the central threat to Biden right and he had to make a point of that We saw the other candidates. Do that to rate I thought it was really interesting. How people to judge you know he pretty much only went after Bernie Sanders and Bloomberg right. Those were his two more on Bernie than Bloomberg nobody else was was a singularly focused on Bernie as Pete I yes. Yes at least in observation now. I think that's definitely true. I think I think on healthcare you know. Obviously we had a Bernie go after Pitas while for his his. His wealthy donors right. Which we've we've seen on the campaign trail As far as Bloomberg. He's such an interesting case. I think It was really interesting to hear his response on the healthcare question right on and the comments that he had made saying that you know his his feeling while before characters. It didn't go far enough I thought that was really interesting but I. I don't know it's it. It was interesting. I think to have To have Michael Bloomberg beyond the stage. An how will this incoming and like you say it didn't. It didn't feel like he was as ready for it. There was something about his performance. That just didn't quite click. He did feel like a visitor he did. I don't know what else to describe it. It just felt like an a visitor to the stage. Like we've got a special guest debate performance tonight. It's Michael Bloomberg but but but I also I mean I think I hate to say it this way but I think he could have done worse you know be. An reasons he could have done. Worse is because there were so many other pockets of tension that occurred. That had nothing to do with him. There were moments but Between Buddha judge and Amy Klobuchar that was really so they so clear she clearly ample yeah and she said basically I've been in the arena and you memorize. Some talking points was wanted it cutting. Yes did she go too far? Mega what are you? That's something that this is goes to a sunset. I don't know what was too hot for TV. Yeah and I'm very curious what she too hot for television. I don't know I don't think so. That was not my perception. I think watching it because I think in this debate right. We've we've come to expect that there will be some tension right. I don't know necessarily obviously when you talk to voters you know they don't want people to get to me and they don't want to get them to in the trenches but at the same time they wanNA see some fire they wanna see some passion up. My perception is that it came off more as fire passion and heard defending herself than it did. Any other points. WanNa make this and you know this. Well both of you do. Maybe Meghan specially is when women are aggressive. There is a sexist rendering of that way too often. But I think both Warren and clover. Shar did it in ways. That probably weren't too hot for TV. Any combs are always has the good natured Minnesota. Living and she and she she will turn she'll make a little joke about and I thought Warren was just you know she was like the lawyer and just just that she was on her point. Either way. I mean it dawned on me this two states in a row and I heard Amy Klobuchar. Talk about the two senators here and I went. Wait a minute New Hampshire. Also two women senators and that allowed and I know what club sharks thinking. I frankly know what Elizabeth warns. Thinking was wait a minute. We are in a state that has no issue with putting women in leadership. Not only that this is I mean Nevada's the majority of the legislature being female both senators being women I think both of them sensed an opportunity here that voters are much more open minded about a woman in a leadership position in this state really than many others. I think that's certainly true and I think it's worth noting as well. Amy Klobuchar every time she comes to Nevada. Name's Dame checks senators. Cortez Maskco Rosen. It's part of her speech. She she likes blow to that. Yeah just keep going I. My perception again was not was that I don't think war and included try went too far. I think Warren like we were talking like John. Just saying was very precise in her attacks. It was very measured very surgical I don't think club. Hr came off. You know too aggressive in her responses WanNa hate characterizing you know like Donna saying I think woman yet too much exactly it comes off as aggressive versus just being strong and defending yourself and and being clear and that was just to prove that this isn't about. I was mayor Bloomberg to condescending. I think he comes across as condescending again all the caveats about TV because he just looked like you know okay. If I gotta be here I'll be here and you know if this is the conversation you're going to have this is going to relax about Donald. Is Senator over here Elizabeth? And all that was that was so bad too by the way one thing about cope chart and Meghan. You'RE GONNA have to figure this out for your story. I'm glad I don't have to do this kind of stuff anymore. But she threw one of our senators under the bus when she was under assault. I don't know if you heard this chocolate. He was under assault by a Buddha judge on voting for for for judges. And don't I'll throw no action by someone else in. This room voted the same way which I don't know I think it's your senators not not worn Warner Sanders. No no no. She was talking about Cortez. Masto or Rosen. And they must have split their votes on that and we'll find out eventually but she threatened to cheat through. I think to make to make herself look better. She threw them under the PAS. The conversation right there. We're going to get back to more on the fallout.

Not only that this is I mean Nevada's the majority of the legislature being female both senators being women I think both of them sensed an opportunity here that voters are much more open minded about a woman in a leadership position in this state really than many others. I think that's certainly true and I think it's worth noting as well. Amy Klobuchar every time she comes to Nevada. Name's Dame checks senators. Cortez Maskco Rosen. It's part of her speech. She she likes blow to that. Yeah just keep going I. My perception again was not was that I don't think war and included try went too far. I think Warren like we were talking like John.

But she threw one of our senators under the bus when she was under assault. I don't know if you heard this chocolate. He was under assault by a Buddha judge on voting for for for judges. And don't I'll throw no action by someone else in. This room voted the same way which I don't know I think it's your senators not not worn Warner Sanders. No no no. She was talking about Cortez. Masto or Rosen. And they must have split their votes on that and we'll find out eventually but she threatened to cheat through. I think to make to make herself look better.

What's the Controversy Behind 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'?
"Brain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here. If you visit the town of sterling Massachusetts today, you'll find a small copper statue of woolly little creature meant to be a replica of the original Lim that followed nine year old Mary Sawyer to school in eighteen fifteen below the statue is a plaque inscribed with the famous opening verse end ascriptin Mary had a little lamb. It's fleece was white as snow and everywhere that Mary went the lamb was shared go. Jon Rao stone. So who exactly was Mary Sawyer? And who was this John Ralston who allegedly wrote the original poem, according to a sixty page book, titled the story of Mary and her little lamb and published in nineteen twenty eight by none other than karma yoga, Henry Ford. More on that later, Mary Sawyer was a typical New England schoolgirl who nursed starving lamb back to health winning a lifelong friend in this book, an adult Sawyer recounted. I got the lamb worn by wrapping it in an old garment and holding it in my arms beside the fireplace in the morning much to my girlish, delight it could stand and from that time and improved rapidly. It soon learned to drink milk and from the time it would walk about it would follow me anywhere. If I only called it. The books behind the music story of the song explains that before leaving for school one morning Sawyer whistled for the lamb and it came faithfully trotting over at which point her brother NATs justed. Let's take the lamb to school with this. She tried to hide the lamb in a basket under her chair. But it was discovered when she stood up to recite a lesson and the fluffy critter started to bleat her teacher. Polly Kimball laughed outright, which caused Sawyer some embarrassment. So she took the lamb out to a shed until school was over for the day. John Ralston was a local boy preparing for college who happened to be visiting the old red school has that day and was according to Sawyer very much pleased with the instant of the lamb so Ralston went home wrote a three stanza poem and return the next day on horseback to hand deliver the original verses of Mary had a little lamb to Sawyer herself. Or so the story goes in sterling Massachusetts meanwhile in Newport, New Hampshire the folks celebrate hometown hero. Sarah Joseph a hail as the author of this beloved nursery. Rhyme HALE is also famous for her role in creating the modern American thanksgiving by a long running letter campaign to five US presidents as a young poet and writer HALE moved to Boston in eighteen twenty eight to become the editor of the first women's magazine in the United States later known as good he's ladies book. It was in Boston that helmet Lowell Mason, a young musician composer intent on bringing music education into America's public schools. Mason inhale shared, the belief that sim. Children's poems set to music could be used teach good Christian morals to kids that would help them. Grow into productive and upright citizens at Mason's. Request HALE wrote a short book fifteen poems called poems for our children, which was published in eighteen thirty Mason than wrote simple melodies to accompany each poem, including these six verse poem, then known as Mary's lamb. Interestingly the tune Mason wrote for Mary's limb, which was included in his eighteen thirty one book, juvenile liar likely the first public school songbook sounds nothing like the melody we know today that melody was borrowed later from the course of a popular minstrel show song called good night ladies, so which story is true. So you're claimed that the first three verses of Hale's poem were identical to the one written by young John Ralston, although the piece of paper gifted to Sawyer had long since disappeared and rows don't tragically died while a freshman at Harvard. So he wasn't around corroborate. When hails version was included in school readers nationwide in the eighteen. Fifties. So you're assumed that the author had simply expanded on Ralston's original three verses, but HALE denied ever seeing another version of Mary had a little lamb and swore. She had conjured the story holy from her imagination. Both Sawyer inhale signed letters in sworn statements in their old age hail just days before death in eighteen eighty nine professing that they were telling the truth of the origin of what had already become a classic nursery rhyme. Enter Henry Ford after both of the women were long gone automobile. Magnate Henry Ford stepped into the fray in nineteen twenty seven he took up the cause of Mary Sawyer moving the wooden frame of Mary's original red schoolhouse from sterling Massachusetts to the nearby town of Sudbury where Ford owned an inn and then in nineteen twenty eight he published the aforementioned book, which gives Ralston full credit for the original versus and asked. Why a respected local woman who served as a matron of the local hospital would make up such a wild story in repeat it her entire life. Hails defenders asked the same question. Sandra Sonics in volunteer archivist of these Sarah j HALE collection at the Richards free library in Newport, New Hampshire writing for the library's website said the story of Mary Sawyer implies that somehow Sarah HALE came across this never published schoolhouse poem, and plagiarized it. How could you have come across? It. Henry Ford's book explains the two towns where Sawyer inhale lived. We're close to each other. They're ninety miles apart over the most direct route. That would have been followed in eighteen fifteen Henry had not yet invented the automobile. So the distance was considerable in a Baltimore Sun story from nineteen ninety eight about the ongoing feud between sterling Massachusetts and Newport, New Hampshire a hail supporter and Newport librarian weighed in let's face. It. Henry Ford made good cars. I don't think he's a good
