Ok, let’s talk about this whole Brett Kavanaugh thing, shall we? #Kavanaugh For the most part, I stay away from making sweeping generalizations about nominees for courts. I’m biased. While I oppose them regularly, I don’t think most Conservative judges are bad people. It’s ideological differences.

Ok, I didn’t eat breakfast 🍳 today, so I’m f***ing pissed (h/t Jason Kelce) Time to dump on the Bernouts. 1. We Democrats don’t owe Bernie, or you, anything. He’s not a Dem. He proudly says he’s not a Dem. Y’all proudly announced you were DemExiting. So do it.

I figure who I’m not voting for based on who Our Revolution and Justice Dems endorse. It’s not an issues thing. I’d like to expand Medicare to everyone and cut student debt. Their issues are not the problem.

Let’s talk about America, the #TrumpShutdown, Donald Trump, the @womensmarch, and @TheDemocrats on 1/20/18, one year into Trump’s American carnage. 1. First off- the positive point for America at one year- we are still here. We’re still alive. We’re not yet at collapse. The economic progress of @BarackObama’s administration has continued so far.

Let’s talk about “the memo” that Russian bots and Republicans are saying implicates the FBI and FISA courts in wrong doing before the election... 1. First off- if the memo is coming out of @DevinNunes and his committee, it is questionable. Nunes is highly compromised and had to “recuse” himself from the investigation.

The real lesson of 2017's politics is that the public is not looking for a controversial, charismatic leader. Sanity is striking back at 2016. 1. I love Hillary Clinton. I voted for her twice, I worked for her twice, I think she's the most capable, qualified, smart, tough leader in the country. She would have been great as President.

Ok, some real talk on Bill Clinton and those saying he should have resigned over the Lewinsky scandal... 1. In a word- no. You are wrong, and offensively so to me. I won't even consider voting for @SenGillibrand over this. I already thought Yglesias was a tool, but this reinforces that.
