Sen. Klobuchar Used My Line (Posted on DU) in the debate [View all]

Before the 2018 election results were announced, I posted my prediction here on DU that a progressive Democratic blue wave would hit, but I specifically.changed wave to wall and said Trump would pay for that wall.

Here is my original post from 2018:

I also repeated this framing on Sirius XM Progress radio on a call-in.

Then Senator Amy Klobuchar adopted my line and on September 21 there were 61 likes for it here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/1287289211

Sen. Klobuchar repeated that line in last night's debate, which caught my attention.

I just want to say that beautiful blue walls are not created by the bipartisan working across the aisle that is one of Senator Klobuchar's signature characteristics.
They are created by hard campaigning for Dems and against Republicans.

I don't mind anyone using this phrase in general, but i do want to state my objection to it being repurposed to apply to the bipartisan efforts Klobuchar favors. The 2018 elections had a big beautiful blue wall that emphatically rejected Trump and Republicans. It wasn't a handshake across the aisle Amy!

The least Klobuchar could do is give a shout out to getting good ideas from DU!! (Or DUers on Progress radio).

On edit: some excellent research below showing some others thought of the phrase before too. I salute them. I still object to repurposing the line to refer to bipartisan efforts!
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
