This is probably right in terms of the economics. But I suspect that telling rural America that it can save itself by becoming exurbia is not the political message people want to hear https://t.co/EsUtiZcZRh

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

not really tracking this whole pelosi as speaker thing but really the most effective speaker in modern history
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?
