18. There were DUers who were sure Warren was in trouble in MA a couple years back

Also some who thought Mc Connell was in trouble in KY in 2014
I don't put a lot of stock in many people's beliefs that are based totally on what they want

9. 74% !!! Bwah ha ha ha



All the hand wringing and BS about the republican primary-ing her has been entertaining but the 74% of local residents have a great STFU to give to all the provocateurs.

Yes. Provocateurs. Please do not forget that some who post here do not have the best intentions for the Democratic Party.

call them provocateurs. Though doubtless some trolls have gotten through.

23. It was obvious that Cabrera was a rightwing

extremist pretending to be a Democrat. So her support here remains inexplicable.

32. Not sure who Cabrera is. I did an advanced search with that handle and it came up empty.

That said, there really are many kinds of trolls, and yes, we doubtless have some on here. DU generally does a great job of keeping out spammers and trolls, though. It's actually a very gentle place. I enjoy sometimes going on The Hill and arguing with the right wingers. The trolls there are pretty obvious, because they do one-liner ad hominem attacks with plenty of name calling and other put downs. They kind of seem to travel in packs.

Every time I challenge one, though, I think that maybe, just maybe, I've touched someone else reading the thread and gotten them to think a bit more deeply on things, maybe access some different sources.

But, man, Trump and the GOP are really going all out towards a dictatorship. Other forces (us) seem to be holding them at bay, but they are not going to get thrown into history's dustbin (and hopefully jail for some of them) without a big, constant, consistent fight.

And there are around 30 million Americans we'll never be able to even touch because they are so indoctrinated in right-wing AM talk propaganda. Face it, if someone listens to Rush every day for a decade, it's going to be very difficult to even present any Democratic thoughts to them, let alone turn them around.

37. Michelle Caruso-Cabrera

who just yesterday was being promoted here as the person who would save us from the (apparently) horrible Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.

Today nobody admits to supporting her.

21. The numbers benefit from a terrible second-place opponent

for this blue district, as well as far larger campaign funding. But she'd been expected to win all along, even if a more electable challenger had arisen.

25. Doesn't This Mean Wall Street Wasted A Lot Of $?

We heard the Wall Street was throwing money at Cabrera. If accurate, it was a colossal waste of cash because they got slaughtered.
These folks are supposed to be geniuses with money. Apparently not!
They told the dealer "hit me" when sitting on King/Nine.

28. It means Wall Street isn't a diabolical all-powerful oligarch force controlling everything.

Otherwise they would control everything, obviously they do not. I wish people would stop creating dramatic enemies when Republicans are the real horrible criminal enemies.

We agree, but I don't get the "creating dramatic enemies" part.
I was creating no enemies in my post.
I was making fun of those "geniuses".

The ones who go on and on about how the donor class, Wall Street, billionaires, corporatists, elites, establishment, DNC, status quo, etc. are out to get them and practically ignore the real enemy, Republicans.

They just couldn’t win this particular battle.

AOC had much more money than her opponents and won.
