5. I think Dems are way too worried about "how it will look" if they speak out

but not all of them. Maxine Waters doesn't seem to have any problem speaking her mind nor does Elizabeth Warren. There's civil and then there's just being a patsy. We've got patsy down and we really need to get over it. The whole "I can't believe you said that" is best responded to with "If you hadn't done that we wouldn't be talking about it." I'm not advocating being a rude jerk but seriously we have got to step up our game and stop acting like that parent who can't tell their child no and make it stick because of a bunch of crocodile tears. The truths the truth and tip toeing around it isn't going to win us any votes. Neither is acting like a wimp and apologizing every time someone whines about getting their feelings hurt.
