State Sen. Kai Kahele (D), an active National Guard member

Wonder whether he will keep his NG spot in Hawaii or move it to the DMV area.

She dared cross Hillary and destroyed Kamala Harris.

The DNC cut her off.

Tulsi Gabbard is nuttier than a fruitcake.

Surprised they found someone that flaky outside of Southern California.

Update: he's a mustang. Earned A1C in 1999 and fast forward to now and he is a LtCol. Likely move would be an eventual retirement instead of the career logistics of repositioning his NG location from HI to somewhere in the DMV.

We need more Gabbards and less Hillary's.

Nobody cares about your chubb for boys in uniform, GoNoles.

Well, maybe LeftCoastLawyer.

Gabbard showed us there's something terribly wrong with her when she voted "present" rather that voting to kick trump to the curb.

It's not homophobic, dumbass.

The voters cut her off because the Representative didn't represent.

They're not living in a vacuum.

The DNC helped them decide who to vote for.

DEFINITELY homophobic. You make a habit of it.

The DNC doesn't live in a vacuum either.

And Hawaiians would've made the same choice even if the DNC had thrown good money after bad. Who needs a DINO barfing FoxNews talking points?

Gabbard is David Duke's favorite politician this side of the orange diaper sniper.

Habit I can see.
Homophobic, not a chance.

She's the one who dropped out of the race when she decided to run for president. More likely she got a job at Fox News.

You're probably not a racist and homophobe. You just speak like one. It's probably generational.

He's an unemployed spoiled troll.

I am a fan of Tulsi Gabbard. Establishment Dems don't like her because she doesn't always tow the party line.

After reading more about him, I think Kai Kahele is a good pick. It appears that Hawaiians know what they want. Kahele holds many of the same, more progressive policy views that Gabbard did.

"Kahele is an advocate of "Medicare for All" and supports the idea of a "Green New Deal" to address climate change and help Hawaii meet its clean energy goals."

Now if only Biden and the Democrats could shift to those views.

According to the article you obviously didn't read, she retired.

It's probably satire.

In LeftCoastLawyer's case, I am genuinely curious why he chooses to remain in the closet with RightOCenter.

I'd truly like to know the calculus there. If I had to guess it's because their clients are right-wing homophobes. But I really have no idea.

And Iraq war veteran who's not an idiot or a lunatic. That would be an upgrade for Hawaii.

Seems more generational in your case.

This entire site runs on No True Scotsmans fallacies that Democrats that disagree on something means the other person is automatically a Republican. I wouldn't waste much time on that except for fishing.

Entire site?

Only conservatives lie about being liberal democrats on this site.

The whole crop of new accounts does it.

I'm fine with Democrats who don't always toe the party line. But Gabbard came off as someone who'd rather be a Republican.

What actions by Gabbard gave you that impression?

In March 2019, Attorney General William Barr asserted in his summary of the Mueller Report that the Special Counsel investigation had failed to find that members of Trump's 2016 campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government. In response, Gabbard commented that "finding the president of the United States not guilty of conspiring with a foreign power to interfere with our elections is a good thing for America."
