Prediction: . . . Nothing will "get done" for two years and that's a good thing. :)
Are you suggesting you would be in favor of shortening the First Amendment to just the first five words, period, full stop?

Headline on editorial sounds like Republican sour grapes, but it's WaPo.

In Florida, everyone's all pouty pants today. Dems because they lost the governor election, lost Senator Nelson and have to deal with Rick Scott indefinitely. Republicans because the House flipped. I'm reading "ohh noes fascist forever!" and "ohh noes socialist forever!" from all directions.

What they need is someone that knows how to craft a message to moderates, even conservative moderates. Not to appease conservatives, but to completely alienate fewer.

We had Ryan Bundy (yes, THAT Ryan Bundy) running for governor. We are also one of the few states to have a "None of the Above" option on our ballots (though its a weak option that can never actually win). Mr. Bundy didn't even beat out "none of the above. It was 1.9% to 1.4%. He handily walloped the Libertarian candidate, who didn't even get a full 1% of the vote.

the salt mines have been at their highest output since Kavanaugh survived the democrat lynch mob

What they really wanna say is, "fuck cruz voters".

The media-entertainment-dnc big brothersphere failed to flip a seat against a guy who looks like a shit weasel with a high pitched whiny voice.

Trump said in a tweet Pelosi “deserves” to be House speaker, and even offered to help provide the votes.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats,” he wrote. “If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!”
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

This is 4D chess defined. The media will be forced to report that not every Democrat is happy to have her as speaker of the house. He makes them cover any division that's there.

Shitlord in Chief. Meanwhile, he calls a press conference to go over the fact he did twice as well in first term mids than Obama/Clinton and declares it a wild success with full confidence.

They still don't understand the metagame and report on the surfaces.

Ginsburg should step down on the condition she picks her replacement (as a backroom deal).

Maybe she picks Gorsuch or something and the GOP goes along if the Dems publicly recant what they did to Kavanaugh.

Fat chance, but they could reset the current broken system that is down to holding up appointments to wait for a new president or accusing supremes of gang rape.
