I've been off the grid but has anyone pointed out that "I wouldn't have had to do that if you hadn't made me so mad" is what ALL abusers say? #StopKavanaugh
Exactly. If everything in the WSJ piece is true, why couldn't he say it under oath?

Wow, YES!!

(Will you go post this on my Facebook post?)

1/ This isn't a #MeToo story exactly, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately. This happened when I was 22. I'd been in DC less than a year, working as a receptionist on Capitol Hill
2/ My friends and I attended a huge black tie event full of Southern political people. Tons of people we knew and worked with. Open bar (natch), ball gowns, the whole nine...
3/ I was hanging out with a good friend and a girl she worked with. I didn't know the 2nd girl well but she was sweet, shy, a bit awkward. She looked AMAZING, low-cut dress showcasing her grandmother's pearls and a knock out figure

I want to talk about this tweet. Yesterday I was with some GOP colleagues. Immigration was ALL. THEY. TALKED. ABOUT. MS-13, sanctuary cities, open borders, "Rule of law"

They think this is a slam dunk, their silver bullet for the midterms

When we say "Abolish ICE" we are playing right into their hands. They were LAUGHING at me about it.

I know it feels good to "take a stand" but in this case there is a real cost to irresponsibly sloganeering.
Think it through. We aren't really saying we want the functions of ICE to go away. We're protesting the way ICE operates currently. It needs to be reformed. Maybe restructured. So let's say THAT.

Thread about how Democrats should be so grateful Bernie Sanders came along and inspired the youth of America to get involved in party politics. /sarc

Bernie "inspired" his flock to think our nominee is evil, our party is corrupt & that little birds should pick the president.

Thanks a lot Bernie!
Bernie "inspired" his flock to believe bipartisanship demonstrates weakness, compromise is failure, and that throwing a temper tantrum is an effective advocacy strategy.

Thanks Bernie!

A big theme of the protest today, as always, is "Why?"

Let me explain why, because blaming NRA $$ is only half right.
1st, let's talk about NRA. Originally a sportsman organization, members were hunters who paid dues & voted on policy positions. Dues funded hunter safety classes, including classes geared towards women. They were not against gun control or gun safety.

Misguided, but legit.
In the late 70's (I think) the organization was taken over by hardliners, and gun manufacturers started funding them. For a long time they went through the motions of letting their membership of hunters vote, but it was a formality.

I have taken classes at the Leadership Institute. Berners can add this to the list of "evidence" that I'm a "secret Republican" but I consider it gaming the system. Also, like the Iowa gig, it was really interesting to peek behind the curtain.

Let me explain
As a civic education group, Leaderhip Int gets federal subsidies. (I'm not sure Democrats have anything similar but we should.) They have tons of classes: social media, research, campaign management, graphic design, media training and they are DIRT CHEAP
I'm not even kidding. $35, $50, never more than $100/day for multi-day classes, and they serve breakfast, lunch & dinner free- n some cases you come out ahead. It's technically "non-partisan" so they have to let anyone in. They'd lose funding if they treated me differently

I'm going to re-work a thread from June that speaks to what Trump is doing with this Nunes memo, and why GOP is letting him get away with it. (Thread)
Once upon a time a guy friend of ours was fighting with his girlfriend because he did something horrible. The details escape me but in the end he made up an elaborate story and somehow convinced her to give him another chance.
We were pretty skeptical she would believe such a ridiculous lie. But here's what he said:

"Sally, girls want to believe. Give them an explanation that isn't 'He doesn't love me' then they can let themselves forgive you. She didn't want to break up, she just needed a reason."
