that would be lost.

"SNIP........

“We will never compromise our principles,” the sixth-term congressman began. “House Democrats will always put American values over autocracy. Benevolence over bigotry. The Constitution over the cult. Democracy over demagogues. Economic opportunity over extremism.”

His voice rising, he continued: “Freedom over fascism. Governing over gaslighting. Hopefulness over hatred. Inclusion over isolation. Justice over judicial overreach. Knowledge over kangaroo courts. Liberty over limitation.”

There was clamour in the chamber by this point, and members roared at Mr. Jeffries’ choice for the letter M: “Maturity over Mar-a-Lago!” Then came “Normalcy over negativity. Opportunity over obstruction. People over politics. Quality-of-life issues over QAnon. Reason over racism. Substance over slander.”

For the finale, Mr. Jeffries – who was speaking without teleprompter – came up with “Triumph over tyranny. Understanding over ugliness. Voting rights over voter suppression. Working families over the well-connected.”

The letter X presented a challenge, but he went with “Xenial over xenophobia.” And lastly: “ ‘Yes, we can’ over ‘you can’t do it,’ and zealous representation over zero-sum confrontation.”

........SNIP"

ACTUALLY IT IS PERFECT. MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST MAKE IT AN AD.
