Good morning, Mr. Glass.

Went to your Zazzle page. Another graphic you might wish to put on your merch is some variation of "liberals were right." :)

Be seeing you.

You know, the hate that I keep getting from supposed liberals for standing up for Nancy Pelosi really burns my duck.
Nancy Pelosi is smarter than I am, particularly about how to get liberal policies enacted in Washington, and I have a certain amount of trust in her abilities that I just don't have in most congresscritters.
But if I say so in the comment section of Crooks and Liars, then all of the sudden I'm a Hilbot who probably doesn't even support single payer.
So I have given up arguing with them about it.
Getting rid of Fergus is gonna be an all hands on deck situation, and the odds aren't really that good, when you consider Kobach and crosscheck and Republican governors hell bent on suppressing our vote and the way that all the attention white supremacists get just energizes them more and on and on... We've got our work cut out for us, even running against a monster like Fergus. And the stakes haven't really changed; next time he might not lose so many legislative fights, and who knows how many supreme court seats will need filling.
So I guess I just feel like I shouldn't be stirring up a bunch of hatred among likely voters against Fergus (see also: active measures, Russian).
Anyway, put me down as someone who remembers who it was who passed the entirety of Barack Obama's agenda through the house and never lost a vote, and got a health bill passed with a public option in it, and when Scott Brown won the special election that took away our 60 vote majority in the senate, got her conference to get its shit together and pass the senate's bill as is (can you even imagine Ryan or Boehner getting a vote like that?) even after the bloody fight they'd gone through to pass their bill, and on and on...
"But She's a corporate Democrat!"
You mean she raised all of those millions of dollars to get Democrats elected (more than $25 million this year)?
And it just goes downhill from there, so I quit.
What I haven't done, and won't do, is forget.
So thank you again for the podcast, it was awesome this week.

Not even a peep that your gov'nah hedge fund signed a motor voter registration type law.

Your silence on this makes me wonder if what I read about this is in fact true?

To get this in before the trade deadline, I will trade you 2 senators, (Fischer and Sasse), for Duckworth and I will toss in 3 congressional aides to be named later.
