Everyone is entitled to a day off to lick wounds and sob into pillows. We will not rehash our assorted reasons for why we need this time to mourn, be we acknowledge that what you feel is real.
So today we mourn, tomorrow we organize.
There is no greater villain today than amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell, who is up for reelection in 2022. Prznint Stupid is easy to blame for all the bad shit going down, but if we were being accurate, the casus belli is Mitch McConnell’s evil scheming for power. First he wrecked (as best he could) the Obama presidency, then he wrecked the country: he blocked the investigation into the Russian meddling with the 2016 election in real time, stole a SCOTUS seat, and has now installed an illegitimate justice who will realistically be there for the next 30 years, fucking us over.
The most important thing we can do to stop the fuckery is to remove the gavel from McConnell’s hand, so we MUST hold all the Democratic senators we currently have and add 3 more to the roster. And that means we have to support the Blue Dogs. You play the hand you are dealt.
While many voices are calling for retaliation against Traitor Joe Manchin, that ship already sailed when Paula Jean Swearengin lost the Democratic primary to him (she raised only $57 thousand Ameros to Manchin’s $4.7M).
Perhaps we need to organize another GoFundMe for 2024 for someone to primary Manchin, just like what Susan Collins is facing now for her 2020 reelection. And we need another GoFundMe thingie for McConnell’s future opponent.
