Our big mistake

was thinking that all these disclosures (referencing specifically Lev Parnas' son's book reported out today by Bertrand on Politico) as well as Mueller, "Anonymous," and others would actually carry weight with them.

They know and they DON'T CARE!!

1. Not really...

One thing I think we accomplished is that we kind of firewalled any undecideds for going Trump's way by getting this kind of crap out there.

As far as the "Trump could have won if he handled covid better" line, I don't think I really believe either. Trump's base is all he ever had. His numbers have been pretty flat for the entire 4 years, and the anger on the left has been motivating people ever since, especially among the young and with women. At best (for him) it might have been another close race, which would make it easier to steal again, but we outnumber them. We have always outnumbered them.

This race was won Jan 21st, 2017.

4. It will be up to Democrats to push our elected officials to act on these people.

It will be easy to move on. Republicans are counting on that.

5. Yup, they are changing narratives very quickly

They rely on disbursing our fears and grievances in a thousand directions.

9. Somehow during the course of the next 4 years

we, the public, have to see that all the problems are, at most, at the very most, only half of our problems.

the stench of the republicans was in the air before they came into the room. If all we do when they're gone is spray air freshener, we lose. They will be back. That is the bigger half of the problem. Those in seats or positions of power now must wear the label of who they are and not be allowed to fade from the limelight.

7. We've known that for years now. But it did have an impact on those sitting on the fence.

It looks like Indies are breaking our way this election and there was the Blue Wave of 2018.
