A very good thread summary of how to think about what's at stake right now.

If you want the Republican Party to start listening to Democrats, break its back. Drive it from office at every level. Power is the only language it speaks and the only one it understands.

A couple of big movie losses today. RIP Michael Chapman, who shot Raging Bull, The Last Waltz and Taxi Driver (and was camera operator on The Godfather and Klute!), and Michel Lonsdale, one of my all-time favorite elegant Euro-menaces, from Moonraker to Munich.

There are 8 million people in NYC. We lost 16,418 of our neighbors. Do you have any idea how many tens if not hundreds of thousands are alive because the vast majority of people in this packed-in city follow safety protocols other states laugh at? No one left to get it? My God.

Did they, though? Here are the ten states with the most covid deaths in the last week (see right-hand column). New York, which is larger than most of these states, is 23rd.

It will be a two-front assault--choke the states off using the withholding of federal dollars as punishment, and send troops in on the pretext of quelling "chaos." 2020 has been the beta test for something that will become standard GOP policy in a blink.

I keep hearing people talk about reversing Roe as the endgame, as if the far right will finally have what it wants. It's not. It's just one more step in a push to erode secular law. They will never stop.

Democratic voters should start thinking about what happens when Roe v Wade falls but abortion remains legal in several large blue states--specifically about the punishment that a far right/theocratic federal government will start to impose on those states. >

Yep. If you don't understand the emotional/personal component of political thinking as anything but a weakness that it's your job to scold people out of, you're failing strategically. A huge part of the job of making change is empathetic persuasion.

...when far less was known about transmission and treatment. We learned, brutally. Now, Northeastern states have--and have had for months--the lowest per capita infection rates in the country. But yeah, keep dismissing that. It's going great for you.

Right-wing trolls LOVE to respond to this by noting the death toll in the Northeast because A) those lives aren't real to them and B) it's all a game. So, for the dimwits and dipshits: Yes, the Northeast suffered devastating losses in March and April... >

I didn't think I'd see the day when North Dakota's per capita rate of covid surpassed New York's, but we've just reached it.
