CORRECTION: A previous version of this article misstated that Jeff Flake was a centrist Republican. There are no centrist Republicans.
Yes, see, they*really* were a liberal democrat, until you liberal democrats were being all liberal and stuff. Then they became an independent*
Oh lookee here. An independent*!
Oh good, we can start the party now that Captain Bothsides has showed up.
Oh good more military festishization. That is just what this country needs.
Because the DNCC is above that and wants to work together in a bipartisan marketplace.
None of this changes until Dems stop playing nice. The GOP can’t be reasoned with, they can’t be compromised with, they can’t be joined across the aisle with.
At the bare fucking minimum, hows about not rolling over and playing dead like Schumer did multiple times on judge appointments? Can we at least hope for that?
When the GOP wins, they thank their voters, they declare themselves a mandate, they vow to ram all their objectives down the throat of the government, and they take no prisoners.
They need a speaker that will actually understand who they are working with, will not continue to be duped by GOP promises, and will fight everything tooth and nail like an actuall coordinated oppositions.
I was wrong. Night started exactly like 2016. Nothing breaking for Dems, tossups that we were told might go blue didn’t, fucking Florida. But yeah they pulled it out and in the process voted out some scum bags. Still a lot of those to go, but I was wrong
Read the article
And the Senate is only one that matters. But enjoy the window dressing
McCaskill and Donnelly, two Dems that bad mouthed their own party and went begging for Trump voters, both go down. Hate any R winnng, but fuck them both and get some actual Dems instead of these two assholes
When will people figure out that voting is a fucking sham. None of this horseshit matters. It’s rigged. The Dems can win the popular vote by 10 points and still lose seats. Democracy is farking dead. GOTV all you want. It doesn’t matter today and after this year it will matter less in 2020 when the Rs gerrymander the…
They didn’t. Dems lose house. Just watch. They will end up with more votes in house but lose. Because nothing fucking matters. And it will only get worse as the Rs will gerrymander even harder in 2020. I hate this country.
What would they be mad about? Not like the Dems will win anything of note here. Between racists really like racists, gerrymandering, suppression, and milllenials being asshats; the blue wave of 2018 will look about as accurate as 2016.
This country is so fucking racist
Great piece. Only thing I’d offer is none of this fear mongering is simply Trump. This is the GOP and has been for decades.
