It was the blunt diagnosis of the man who guided Bill Clinton to the White House in the early 1990s.

“Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey,” Carville told PBS’s Judy Woodruff. “Look at Long Island, look at Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean, this ‘spending the police’ madness, it takes Abraham Lincoln’s name out of schools. I mean that, people see it.

In July, in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Carville said the party’s focus on “awakening” issues jeopardized its ability to retain majorities in the House and Senate.

“We let a loud wing of our party define the rest of us. And what I mean is we can’t do that, ”Carville told Cuomo. “I think these people are all nice people. I think they are very naive and they all like the language and the identity. And it doesn’t matter. They are not storming the Capitol. But they don’t win the election.

Carville’s argument is that by focusing on removing statues or funding police or appropriate pronouns for transgender students, Democrats are talking too much about issues that matter less to a wide range of Americans than, say, the economy.

“Some of these people need to go to a drug rehab center ‘awake’ or something,” Carville told Woodruff. “They are expressing language that people just don’t use, and there is a backlash and frustration to that.”

There is evidence from Virginia that Carville is on to something. Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin (R) has centered his campaign on alleged awakening in education – from mask mandates to critical race theory to transgender issues.

And more than half of Virginia voters (51%) said the Democratic Party was “too liberal” in Tuesday’s race exit polls. Youngkin won 87% of the vote among this group.

Point: Carville’s complaints about awakening have generally been dismissed as the views of a former great strategist who is no longer in touch with modern politics. But, after Tuesday, Democrats are expected to bring Carville in and listen to every word he says.

“I think you’re having a stroke. Concerned friends and family have told me this more than once – every time I have Bell’s palsy, an unexplained episode of facial weakness or paralysis. Most people recover from this condition, which typically leaves half of your face in a frozen and / or droopy mask. That I have taken it down twice is remarkably rare – but at least I have recovered both times.

Sarah Ruhl, the famous playwright, essayist / author, Pulitzer double finalist and MacArthur genius, also suffered from Bell’s palsy, just as one of her plays was about to open on Broadway, and she tried hard to “wait” until everything was back to normal.

Except that it has not disappeared.

In “Smile: The Story of a Face”, Ruhl’s new memoir, she wrote a series of autobiographical essays on her ten-year search to find a cure for her situation – while balancing her duties as a mother, wife and artist.

Ruhl will appear on Tuesday for an author / signature talk at the Savoy Bookstore and Cafe in Westerly. Expect laughter, wisdom, angst, and eloquence.

Sarah Ruhl., 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Savoy Bookshop & Café, 10 Canal St., Westerly; $ 5, $ 30 with signed copy of the book; banksquarebooks.com, (401) 213-3901.

Most people curious about my work want to know how to interview famous musicians – and seem surprised when I say that most of them are cordial, pleasant, and even cheerfully concerned.

(Not so fast, George Thorogood!)

One of the nicest interlocutors was British guitarist / songwriter Richard Thompson, whose gentlemanly elegance and dry wit were continually on display. Considering the erudition and sophistication of his songs and lyrics, it was no shock. So it’s good news that Thompson is returning to the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center on Tuesday.

His latest CD, “13 Rivers”, was released in 2018 with the usual justified cheers, and expect a sampling of this album as well as selections from a vast catalog of hundreds of tracks – virtually any. of them that he can withdraw at any time. .

A bittersweet note: Thompson’s autobiography, “Beeswing – Losing My Way and Finding My Voice,” was released in April and received rave reviews. Thompson’s co-author on the book was former Day Arts writer Scott Timberg, who tragically passed away in 2019. It is an honor for Thompson and Timberg that they were able to work together.

Richard Thompson, Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m., Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, 300 Main Street, Old Saybrook; $ 75; thekate.org., (860) 510-1473.

Any of those three could take over a game, and any of them could take over if another hadn’t. not a good game, and if all three were on, heaven help the other team.

“They are three great players, but the other thing that has really impressed our coaching staff is that they are selfless. They put the team ahead of themselves, and hopefully that’s the one thing we will really remember next year with the group we have back.

A pair of runoff races will determine which party controls the US Senate. The Kenosha police officer who shot Jacob Blake will not be criminally charged. And have you received your coronavirus relief payment? If not, don’t call us (or the IRS).

This is ashley. Let’s talk about news.

But first when the sweatpants hit the spot: Almost 30% of working professionals say they would quit if they had to return to the office after the pandemic.

Who’s gonna be, Georgia?

Who will control the US Senate: Republicans or Democrats? It’s been a long time to come, but two runoffs from Georgia today are finally going to decide. Voters will determine whether incumbent Republican David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler return to Washington or whether Democratic challengers Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock take their place. A victory for one of the Republicans would keep the Senate in GOP hands. Ossoff and Warnock’s victories would result in a 50-50 split, effectively giving Democrats control of the Senate as Vice President-elect Kamala Harris would have decisive votes.

Here are the answers to your other questions about the Senate race:

  • When will we know the winners? If November is any indication, it could be days before the winners are known. COVID-19 has led to a huge increase in postal ballots, which take longer to count.
  • Could there be a second second round? Yes, it is possible, but it is extremely unlikely. The only way a run-off could take place is for both candidates to receive exactly the same number of votes.
  • Could there be a recount? Yes, if one of the races ends with a margin of less than 0.5 percentage point for the winner, a recount may be requested.
  • When will the election be certified? Georgia counties will have until January 15 to certify the results. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has until Jan. 22 to certify the statewide results. There could be legal fights that draw the races to the buzzer.

No charges against Kenosha cop in Jacob Blake shooting

Rusten Sheskey, the Kenosha, Wisconsin, police officer who shot Jacob Blake in August will not face criminal charges, Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley said on Tuesday. The other two officers will also not be present when Blake was shot, Graveley said. His decision was based on evidence that could not be seen on video of the incident on cellphone, which showed Sheskey shooting Blake, 29, as he got into a vehicle with his children inside. Blake, who was shot in the back, was left paralyzed. Blake’s family and community leaders have urged police and prosecutors to fire and charge Officer Sheskey for the shooting that has sparked protests against police violence across the country.

Protesters demand accountability in the Jacob Blake case at a police station on August 24, 2020, in Minneapolis.

Are you ready for this vaccine, America?
