I'm completely sick of "Beto for president" threads.

Not enough experience, people. And I know the same thing was said about President Obama, but I'm gonna lay it out: I'm sure Beto is quite intelligent, but he's not in the same ZIP code as President Obama for outright brilliance. I like him as a VP candidate, but I don't want him as a presidential candidate. I don't think he's electable as a presidential candidate.

I'm sick of the same old "new bright shiny white guy" for president stuff. No to Beto. HELL no to Kennedy. Way too young, and I am not a fan of dynasties, either. Outside of his name, I think Kennedy's average as grits. Earnest and a good but not great speaker. Definitely not electable. Give him 20 years of seasoning and maybe. I - and I say this as a white man - I am damn ready for us to put up another tough as nails, brilliant woman for president. I know some of you have issues with Kamala Harris, but watching her run rings around everyone she's gone after in Senate meetings has convinced me she's sharp as hell and can win.

Another mass shooting: Mercy Hospital in Chicago.

I haven't seen any reports on the number of casualties.

It just completely bewilders me how anyone could do this to other human beings.

This was a reply, but I wanted it out there as a thread: Harris/O'Rourke 2020.

Two extraordinary speakers. Harris would absolutely carve up Trump in any debate. He would completely lose his mind when a black woman ran circles around him. And she is tough as nails. Any shot he took at her, she'd return with interest. And she does contempt so well. So well. Highly useful in a debate against Trump.

And can you imagine how hard Beto would beat down Pence in a debate? OMG. I know that he's already said he doesn't want to be President, but maybe VP would appeal. In two years, he could preside over Cruz.

I hope to see a bunch of legislation coming out of the House

Shoring up the damage done to the ACA by the Republicans. Protections for Medicare and Social Security. Establish a new coverage formula for the Voting Rights Act. Make Republicans in the Senate vote them down, or make Trump veto them. Hit the Senate and Executive Branch hard with the kind of Democratic legislation that the country will approve of. That's a big way to set up a blue wave in 2020. Put Republican representatives, senators, and Trump on the record and batter them senseless with that record in 2020.

Oh, and also investigate the shit out of Trump. And throw McConnell, Nunez, and the rest of the Fuck America Gang in there, too. I want the most energetic House in history.

THE HOUSE!! THE HOUSE!! THIS IS HUGE!!!

Devin Nunez is now Devin Neutered!

And now... instead of the Russia investigation being blocked and hindered by the House, the House can support the investigation. And if Trump fires Sessions and Rosenstein after the election, and his lackey fires Mueller, then the House can appoint a special committee and simply direct Mueller to continue his investigation under the auspices of the committee. And I would appoint Maxine Waters as the chair of this committee!

Do you understand? We have just fireproofed Mueller. Now the hammer - or, shall I say, gavel? - comes down on Trump! Investigations? Check. Republican House obfuscation? Gone. Trump tax records? Available. All the frustration we've had with House investigations is going to be reversed. I can't wait for the blood to start flowing from Trump's whatever.

I understand the disappointments regarding the Senate. I thought Bredesen had a chance in my state. So disheartening. I didn't just want a blue wave, I wanted a blue tsunami. But if I had to choose between flipping Tennessee and Texas and taking the House, I'd pick "take the House."

Fucking Tennessee Senate race.

I live here, and I hate it tonight. Goddamn this goddamn state for electing goddamn Marsha evil fucking Blackburn. If Trump is Hitler, she's fucking Eva Braun.

Check in... who's quickly losing their fingernails?

Mine are ragged as hell right now.

"As you know, my primary focus has been the Senate."

That’s what Trump has been saying. You know what it really means? It means he’s distancing himself from the House. It means he thinks we will take the House. If he thought Republicans were going to hold it, he’d be jabbering on about “that big, beautiful, Republican House” or some other stupid bullshit like that.

I find that encouraging.

Sayoc is the MAGABOMBER. That makes Trump the MAGALOMANIAC.

Or maybe the MAGAMIND. Of course, that’s not much of a mind at all.

Repeat after me: the MAGABOMBER is a RIGHT-WING DOMESTIC TERRORIST.

I think that needs to be repeated as much as possible. And Trump encourages right-wing domestic terrorism.
