Who?

Isn't he an SNL cast member? (Seth Moulton)
this is some funny shit

@realDonaldTrump
The Dow is down 573 points perhaps on the news that Representative Seth Moulton, whoever that may be, has dropped out of the 2020 Presidential Race!
Yeah, that is pretty funny actually.

Obama won that district by +8 in 2008, then lost by -3 in 2012. I wonder why the dramatic shift?

Interesting
my first thought is: 95.6% White
but really doesn't explain the change in two election cycles

are we not going to make note of Joe Walsh's candidacy?  i mean, it isn't going to go anywhere, but we should at least mention it...

Joe Walsh officially confirms 2020 Trump Primary Challenge
The ex-congressman-turned-talk radio host announced on Sunday a long-shot gamble to wrestle the 2020 Republican nomination from Trump.

this headline says all we need to know about his candidacy: "Joe Walsh says he is challenging Trump 'to make the moral case against him'".  newsflash: the GOP has no morals at the moment.

God, I hope he doesn't pick that arrogant dick Henley for his VP.

was mentioned appropriately here

I'm making executive orders, my base they can't wait
They create memes to tell me I'm great
So I got me an office with gold piping on the seat
I'll just watch some Fox 'news' or maybe I'll tweet

I'll expand your list to everyone not currently in position to make the third debate. (And I'd probably throw Yang on there too even though he is qualified.)

here's that list
Tom Steyer    
Tulsi Gabbard    
Marianne Williamson
Kirsten Gillibrand          
Bill de Blasio

Yang...what are you talking about
With merch like this...


I kinda feel that people are still somewhat interested in those folks
but they could all go away* Wednesday and I wouldn't shed a tear

*from the primary

If I'm being charitable Yang and Gillibrand can stay in. Gillibrand really should be a better candidate but she's clearly pissed off the troglodyte cretin, Franken-loving garbage wing of the party.

So that's only part of my gripe with her.
 It sucks that Franken did some sleazy things, and ultimately we had to take 'better than them' stance on this.  Bitter pill for me to swallow, but I think I'm on board with this now

but he really was one of the most articulate, passionate and true to the dem principals in congress that I can point to.  He took Paul Wellstone's seat and did it as a tribute to one of the most important Dems in our lifetime (that nobody remembers)
Most others can barely put together a sentence on stage, we do need more Dem leaders like him (without the sleaze)  who can really go head to head with the likes of Trump and his ilk.

Now this was 2007...but was definitely her position at the time
membership in the Blue Dog Coalition of conservative Democrats
legislation making English America’s official language and a slew of anti-immigrant things
The Human Rights Campaign, gave her the lowest rating of any NY Democrat in Congress for her positions on gay rights issues.
Her rating from the National Rifle Association, was a solid 100 percent. (TBT..she got an F from the NRA in 2009)

Her attacking Biden for stuff that happened in the 70s was bad form too

She is an important democrat and think she should still be a national player...but drop out of the primary

I work with a guy named Yang who does math for a living. That shirt looks like a perfect Xmas gift if I was into giving Xmas gifts to my office mates.

Yeah, Yang sucks and is a one trick pony but at least he has a different viewpoint so I'm fine with him staying. It's kind of fun seeing how he can shoehorn his UBI pitch to every question like where he answered a climate question by saying with the $1000/ month you can move to high ground to survive
