"We're losing our damn minds": James Carville unloads on the Democratic Party

The full interview is worth reading and not too long. A few highlights:

For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in the party has the sense to plaster a picture of him up there sucking up to the global elites, talking about cutting taxes for them while he’s talking about cutting Medicare back home. Jesus, this is so obvious and so easy and I don’t see any of the candidates taking advantage of it.

The Republicans have destroyed their party and turned it into a personality cult, but if anyone thinks they can’t win, they’re out of their damn mind.

Sanders might get 280 electoral votes and win the presidency and maybe we keep the House. But there’s no chance in hell we’ll ever win the Senate with Sanders at the top of the party defining it for the public. Eighteen percent of the country elects more than half of our senators. That’s the deal, fair or not.

So long as [Mitch] McConnell runs the Senate, it’s game over. There’s no chance we’ll change the courts, and nothing will happen, and he’ll just be sitting up there screaming in the microphone about the revolution. The purpose of a political party is to acquire power. All right? Without power, nothing matters.


And I really like his last line:

Falling into despair won’t help anyone, though. I mean, you can curse the darkness or you can light a candle. I’m getting a fucking welding torch. Okay?

Find Rush Limbaugh

Frank Rich: We've reached the nadir where even Gordon Sondland is more of a patriot than Sen Collins

Words that @SenatorCollins will eat from now to election day:

“I believe the president has learned from this case...The president has been impeached, that’s a pretty big lesson,”
“...I believe he will be much more cautious in the future."

Rev Barber: "He looks like he's getting away, but pride & arrogance come before a fall."

Mark my word: more things are going to come out that will prove just how guilty Trump & his enablers are. It will turn the public against them. How do we know? Read history. He looks like he’s getting away, but pride & arrogance come before a fall. Always have, always will.

Reminded of Vindman's message to his dad at hearing: Do not worry, I will be fine for telling truth"

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman thanked his father for leaving the Soviet Union 40 years ago to give him and his brothers the opportunity to live in a country “free of fear” for their safety.

“Dad, I'm sitting here today in the U.S. Capitol, talking to our elected professionals, is proof that you made the right decision 40 years ago to leave the Soviet Union and come here to the United States of America in search of a better life for our family,” he said Tuesday during his opening statement as part of Tuesday's public impeachment inquiry hearing.

“Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth.”

It's NOT unpatriotic to want to make things better.

Sen. Jon Tester found it interesting that Trump would try to attack Romney's faith:


"I think it's ironic that the president goes after him, a man who had an affair with a porn star while his wife was pregnant. That's the ultimate of ironies."

My favorite Pelosi Quote:

Pelosi: "He's talking about things that he knows little about. Faith and prayer."

Salt Lake Tribune Ed Board: "All Utahns, all Americans, regardless of politics...should be impressed

Salt Lake Tribune Ed Board: "All Utahns, all Americans, regardless of politics ... should be duly impressed with Romney's decision to follow his heart and his conscience — and his God — in doing the right thing when doing the right thing was difficult."
