Here, for your delectation and elucidation, is a series of quote tweets and replies. (P.S. Why do I have to unravel this stuff like this?)
What’s the news for today?
People screaming and rending their garments at the sausage making process
Sinema brought cake
(Here’s what they’re talking about:)
Idk why people are so mad at Sinema, a bunch of other Dems didnt vote for the Bernie amendment either. This is on Bernie for not building the coalition he needed for success
They’ve been targeting her in particular for years and will celebrate if their hard work causes her to lose to a Republican in 2024.
They need to grow up and realize not every electorate is gentrified Brooklyn. You can’t win as a socialist in most places. Sinema, Manchin, etc won their elections precisely because of the politics they hold. And if they didn’t win, GOP has a majority and everyone gets zero.
you don’t think a more liberal candidate could win in AZ? I’m resigned to WV but is AZ that right leaning
Anyway, the answer is to flip more GOP senate seats.
The Senate has a rural bias, Dems will be relying on moderate Senators for any hope of a majority for the rest of this decade at least.
This is a ridiculous argument. 2/3rds of the population want universal healthcare, cannabis legalization & $15 min wage. We cannot keep saying we have to elect “moderates” to pass these policies. Moderates don’t support these things. It doesn’t matter how many of them we elect.
Then move a bunch of leftists to Idaho and go win a Senate seat there. The Senate has a rural bias, its purposefully anti majoritarian. To overcome that and have a chance at any majority Dems have to rely on moderates. Its *something* or *nothing* and its an easy choice
