Dems must take the Senate—not in November, but RIGHT NOW. It CAN be done—but it requires a little ruthlessness, a lot of creativity, and more guts than Democratic party leaders have shown since LBJ.
Brilliant. Desperate. Thank you. Blue state secession is next.
Window cancer ... Heard 👍
OMG, such beautiful and horrible writing. I’m in.
I think you're delusional. A 10 or 12 cylinder Lefty to be sure.
Angry? Oh why not?
Sane? Not a chance.
Where where you all my life, at least the last 40 years…. In the St-Louis Post Dispatch, Mar 17, 1985. “‘Conservative Revolution will alter all policies,’ Spokesman Says. We are at the very beginning of this conservative revolution, (Lewis) Lehrman said…we’re not even in the middle of it….our economic, our social, our international policies are going to be altered in every significant respect. The president hasn’t even begun the program of constitutional reform, And the change in social policy.” But the stage was set, and the actors were waiting for the scripts which would upend our world. They told us…
I'm in...where do I sign?
It is a long road from dithering to ruthless dems. Jamie Harrison, not impressive. Cannot blame for everything. Trumplicans are ruthless. We should be destroying them, not working together.
Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
Greg, I did not receive this in my email. Another subscriber posted the link to it on another substack and that's how I was able to access it. I don't know what has happened with my subscription.
Nevermind. I found it in my deleted file. Oops!
"... and more guts than Democratic party leaders have shown since LBJ."
This is where this falls apart, but I will upvote it in the same way that I will vote a straight Democratic ticket in November -- because there is no other choice.
Democratic candidates running to unseat the Republican majority in the Senate blew hundreds of millions of dollars on the races and still fell short in six high-profile elections, according to a report.
The Democrats broke fundraising records by hauling in $315 million in the effort to flip six seats — in Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, South Carolina and Texas — but lost all of them, The Week reported on Wednesday.
Jamie Harrison raised a whopping $107.5 million in his race against GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, but lost to the chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee by more than 10 percentage points.
Democrat Amy McGrath sought to topple Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky and raised more than $88 million, but ended up losing by 21 percentage points.

I have never believed that Russian Ron was elected fairly. He skated in on the same corruption that gave Wisconsin to trump in '16, and he's been indebted to Putin ever since. I would love to see his pompous self hung by the...you know.
Can we call a meeting of the 90-pound weakling Dem leaders and present this column as their marching orders?
Who knew a plan for saving the nation could be so damn funny and right on at the same time?
And what Democratic senator should read it into the Congressional Record? Or better yet, let Rep. Katie Porter do with her wicked FU smile.
Get this in front of Democratic leadership NOW!
Ruthless. Love it
Yes! This is a GREAT plan! Especially silencing the Republican State Legislatures!
