I love you guys with all my heart

You’ve saved me from deep depression ever since GW days. But for once and for all can we learn to savor our victories? If we pull this off can we enjoy this? Can we build on this?

If we win this, Barr is gone
Steven Miller is gone
The Trump spawn are gone
The White House gets fumigated
KIDS GET OUT OF CAGES
Air and water regulations are back
We have the first female VP

I was 12 hours away from worrying about Trump’s mass arrests of his perceived enemies

We have the power of Presidency and the ARMY of bureaucrats that goes with that

We live to fight another day

Joe Biden appoints cabinet and trains a whole new generation of leaders

We just may have saved democracy

We have what we did not have YESTERDAY.

How come the pollsters were wrong but Nancy knew enough on Tuesday to say the House would be ready

Vote if there were a tie?

There is some sort of two-tiered polling system -one for us and one for insiders.

If we win this thing I'm not mourning our country

I can’t wait for Joe to lean in to trump and say “have I told you about my phenomenal EC victory?” And “did you see that popular vote? Some people say it was the greatest ever!”

I will tell every Bible thumping evangelical Trumpster I know that it was god’s will and when Joe went to church and prayed on Election Day, god showed his approval by rewarding him with a popular and EC win.

Just got polled by Marist in Florida

Very comprehensive
Age, religion, income, education, church-going status (including how often) suburban vs city or rural, who I voted for in 2016 and who I voted for now, Favorability of candidates for pres plus favorability of governor (DeSantis)

Gave all favorable to Dems and zero for republicans and Barrett

Landline poll. I only answered because it showed Marist on caller ID.

Our "underlevered" president who borrowed money as a "favor"

Isn’t that what money launderers do?

Isn’t “underlever” one glitch away from under water? Trump’s senility is making him very confessy.

Two reasons you know the Hunter Biden thing is fake

We are going to win because

People are sick of 2020 and anything and anyone who had anything to do with 2020. People want to turn the page and they’re ready for anything.

The Trump-has-Covid thing and the Pentagon-has- Covid thing will just remind everyone that 2020 isn’t going away even in 2021. And now they have an idiot to blame who caused this crisis to go on and on and on and on. People are going to want to slap 👋 Trump hard in the face.

(My non-scientific thoughts based on nothing but shared rage)

Question for Bernie and Warren supporters

I know most of your likeminded friends will vote Biden but does this tax cheat story grab some voters from the margins who loved your candidates but were sort of lukewarm about Biden? In other words were there people who were staying home or voting Third Party who will now vote for Biden?

Barrett's Religiosity

Democrats absolutely must hammer the cult connections of Barrett. The American people need to know all allegiances of a Supreme Court justice and if she still belongs to a group requiring her to bow to the decisions of another person, any other person, we have a right to inquire. We also have a right to inquire about the duty to support others within the group. Those people are her family, then, and their connections are her connections. That’s the constitutional reason to inquire.

The political reasons are as follows: Trump already has hardline Catholics and Evangelicals, preppers and cultists. Barrett’s cult involvement in contrary to mainline Catholicism. The RW Catholicism that tolerates Opus Dei etc does not necessarily embrace secret societies not controlled by the church, especially those in which the members give obedience to non-officials of the church.

Among soft Catholics, even right-leaning Catholics, the whole “handmaiden” thing is completely foreign. Giving up one’s decision making to an equal is pretty much against the exercise of the individual conscience, which is rock bottom Catholicism.

Soft Catholics will be creeped out by Barrett’s cult membership and it will be easy to distinguish her cult religion from mainline Catholicism. Catholics will not feel that a fellow catholic is being attacked if the creepy cult is attacked.

We are going to be stuck with a RW anti-labor, anti-poor, anti-choice SC justice no matter what, but we could make sure that Trump does not peel away soft Catholic votes in this election. Attacking the cult status will not hurt us. Failing to talk about it will.

Voluntarily bowing down to to a man is not something Catholic (at least Irish Catholic) women will understand. There will be a lot of head scratching and much embarrassment.
