This piece nicely represents literally everything wrong with the Democrats right now:
I cannot comprehend anything less productive for Democrats than lashing out at their longtime leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), as if she is to blame for not winning a deep-red congressional seat in a special election. (Do they have any evidence for such a connection? Do they not think any replacement would be just as demonized by the GOP?) Frankly, if Republicans did this, Democrats would go after them for misogyny. Democrats were given a gift — if they care to accept it — on Thursday when Republicans helped them turn the page to health care.
Democrats can have a field day pointing to Republicans’ proposed cuts to health care for the poor and tax breaks to the richest Americans. They can remind voters that millions who earned coverage when Democrats were in charge now will lose it. In search of a “message,” they can come back to the tried and true: Republicans are for the rich, we’re for the working and middle class.
Just so much bad here.
Yeah, fuck the people who will actually die from this, because then we can run milquetoast centrists who finger point at how gosh-darn BAD the GOP is! That works out SUPER well. I hope Pelosi can treat us with another congratulatory song.
And while we’re at it, let’s keep repeating that GA-06 was “deep red” despite Trump only winning it by 1.5%. It makes ourselves feel good at least! Why look inward? We’re not those terrible Republicans, which means 2018 will be handed to us on a silver platter ((:
