"The Democratic leadership appears determined to alienate, as often and thoroughly as possible, the very people who could lift it to victory in 2018 and beyond: not just black women (who famously put Senator Doug Jones over the top in Alabama last December), but pretty much everybody to the left of Chuck Schumer."

No ideas no solutions from centrist Dems for the win!

My wishful thinking believes that those who do not agree with the Jackass, and his minions, will vote democratic irregardless of disagreements one might have with others on the left. For instance, if you are not for trade wars, imprisoning children and babies, withdrawing from allies we have had for a very long time, believe in trade, changing drinking water standards (making them less stringent), believe in climate change, privatizing public schools, etc then I would think the only option is to vote democratic.

Basically, if you support the Jackass, then you are for all of the above and a LOT more. My problem, of course, is that none of this kind of stuff is being said by anybody on the left. Instead it would seem that much of the democratic hierarchy are going to stick to their guns, call all the shots, and waste all the money. I REALLY hope I am dead wrong!!!

Ayup. They are. And they are proud of it. They don't think like us, and they think we're crazy for not thinking like them. I call it the Trayvon Martin effect...Every Republican everywhere immediately sided with the killer. Every Democrat everywhere immediately sided with the victim.

Weird, huh?

Thing is--it matters not what Donald says or does. In fact, the more outrageous to the left.. the better his followers will love him. He could indeed shoot someone on the corner (as long it was a nigger or a spic) and he would in deed be forgiven.

Even cheered on by his tribe. We have come to that folks. Get used to it.

It goes downhill from here.

"The point is that shes a leftist, an activist, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Crowley and his ilk identify as liberals. Its safe to say, at this point, that much of the groundswell around Ocasio-Cortez stemmed from the fact that she was not offering more of the same bullshit the Democrats always try to sell usa critical distinction that helped her win."

progressives fight on issues, pearl clutching centrist dems suprised (again)

Meanwhile, DCCC breaks it's teeth in the 24th (and wasted 300K on another loser) by trying to pick the candidate over the district voters.

back story

Howd that work out...

Actually, she won by going around the district in a classic door-to-door campaign, introducing herself to voters. She is the same ethnicity as a lot of people in the district. Her platform includes lots of things people in the working-class district like. And the incumbent lives in Arlington, Virginia!

He didn't tend his garden, so to speak. That's pretty important for a Representative. I don't think she won so much because of her positions. She won because she was there in the district and he wasn't.

Good for her, I say. He has a pretty important Democratic Party position that he retains, and he is supporting her run.
