White House Bureau Chief James Downie returns for one last column. He will, however, be covering the College Democrats’ trip this weekend to Virginia. (Note: this column’s title meant to be followed by a voiced guitar strum, a la the 80s classic).  Well, here’s my last column. No, please stop cheering–it makes me sad. On […]

White House Bureau Chief James Downie resumes his duties. Normally, I’ve tried to begin these dispatches with a semi-relevant segue. Yet, as of tomorrow, there will be only two weeks left before the end of the presidential campaign. Frankly, the election at this point needs no introduction, so let’s just jump right in. And now, […]

White House Bureau Chief James Downie takes a break from studying to file another dispatch: It’s midterm time. For most, this time of year  inevitably leads to at least one or two sleepless nights, and many sleep-light nights. Of course, there’s always that one person who just has to brag about how little they slept, […]

White House Bureau Chief James Downie returns with an early prediction on who will win the White House. Recently I was rewatching the most recent season of the hit BBC show Top Gear. For the non-Anglophiles among my reader(s?), Top Gear is technically a car show, but it’s really much more about three middle-aged British […]

Bwog’s White House Bureau Chief James Downie files another dispatch. Before I dive in, I’d like to extend my sympathies to any New York Mets fans reading this. By this, I mean I’d like to, but I can’t: as a Washington Nationals fan, I consider any season with a sniff of the playoffs to be […]

White House Bureau Chief James Downie continues his dispatches from the trail: “Six weeks. Four candidates. Two winners. It all comes down to this.” If I were a bad copy writer like those who seemed to be advertising and writing last night’s Emmys (cheers to Glenn Close and Zeljko Ivanek for Damages!), that’s how I’d […]

The school year has started again, and so Bwog’s “White House Bureau Chief” Jim Downie resumes his dispatches. Gather ’round, Terrible 12s, and I’ll tell you a story. See, way back in your senior year of high school, Bwog decided to ask me to write a weekly column about the election. I’ve been told the selection […]

Bwog’s Political Columnist Jim Downie returns to live-blog some random speech. No doubt 2012 is wondering why Bwog is employing a political columnist, and why he’s live-blogging alongside almost every other political website in the country. I can’t answer the first question, but, since I’m here, I might as well live-blog the first presidential nominee […]

Bwog White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie’s Political Weekly returns for a special end-of-times/beginning-of-times look at the Democratic nomination and a wrap-up of last month’s campaign trail happenings. And then there were two. One year, three months and twenty-four days after declaring his campaign for the Democratic nomination, Senator Barack Obama finally crossed the elusive […]

Every week this year seems to have its Super Tuesday. It’s time once again to check in with White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie for the last Political Weekly of the semester.  Reading week is the time when Columbia students (supposedly) “take it to the next level.” Unbelievably, the same is still true today of […]

Bwog’s coverage of the 2008 presidential campaign continues with Jim Downie’s Political Weekly, now back to its regularly scheduled Monday broadcast.  This week in politics is like the eye of a hurricane (or at least a tropical depression): stuck in between two supposedly significant weeks. Life on the campaign trail continues incessantly: campaign strategists will […]

Today’s the Pennsylvania primary, which means that it’s time for another very special Tuesday edition of White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie’s Political Weekly.  April 22nd, 2008: Known in the rest of the world as the first of two European Champions League semifinals, Americans know it as Super Tuesday 3.0. Unlike its predecessors of March […]

Another very special Tuesday installment of Political Weekly with Bwog’s White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie. It’s spring, which means that Columbia can remove those unsightly tarps from the lawns just in time for prospective students to think that Columbia always looks this happy. Of course, spring is also the time of year when the thoughts of […]

Jim Downie’s Political Weekly returns to its regularly scheduled broadcast time with a campaign trail synopsis that doesn’t involve George Krebs or Alidad Damooei. As elections draw nearer, the candidates continue to slog it out on the campaign trail. The whirlwind schedule of endorsements, media, flyering, and stumping becomes even more repetitive to both the […]

White House Bureau Chief Jim Downie returns with news from the campaign trail (on a Tuesday!). April fools? Spring means baseball, and on Sunday night, your blogger’s favorite baseball team, the Washington Nationals, opened their new ballpark in DC (with a win over the Braves, by the way). The number of people who thought last […]
