Is it a "slime campaign" when people accurately point out the slimy things in your record? Also, Moore is a disastrous choice on economic substance, quite aside from the personal issues https://t.co/C6NfkoKYcP

Susan Collins says she's concerned about deficits, and that's why she's voting for the tax bill. I'm watching my weight, and that's why I'm having a huge piece of pie with ice cream.

I read the news today, oh boy. Shocked at how little there is about the anti-democratic coup in Wisconsin. A once-progressive US state has just been turned into Hungary on the Great Lakes. Where's the wave of outrage?

Not really tracking this whole Pelosi-as-speaker thing. But really: the most effective speaker in modern history, who just oversaw a highly effective campaign, and is still vigorous. Yes, Republicans demonize her. So? Why on earth not use her demonstrated skills for now?
