I'm thinking ahead....

... and I'm not thinking kind thoughts. Do NOT try to talk me down.

Kentucky and Tennessee and those other states...?

I hope the Powers That Be in the Dem hierarchy are keeping track of them.
I sure as hell am.

In the past, I'd have said the the Dems need to reach across the aisle and bring them into the fold. More flies with honey, and all that happy shit.

Now... I want the Dems to remind those states that elections have consequences, and when the Dems get control of the Senate - and keep the House - those states need to be reminded that those consequences can be ugly. No slack... no rhythm.
Those defense contracts? Elsewhere. Highway and infrastructure funds? Elsewhere. Those USDA grants - like the $200,000 grant to the Florida clam company? Elsewhere.

Fuck 'em. The red states are money-suckers anyway, so let them have their "free-dumb".
