My favorite part of the speech was, after he laid out all these basic liberal functions of government that the feds must abandon, he's like oh, but of course the feds will still do immigration enforcement! I know he's sincere, but it was indistinguishable from trolling.

Yup. The whole speech is worth watching. He genuinely believes that stripping the federal government of the power to do anything Republicans don't like is a panacea that will cure our national tensions and allow us to live in harmony.

Hill staffer sent me this pic of Ocasio-Cortez they took just now. I’ll tell you something: that jacket and coat don’t look like a girl who struggles.

That awkward moment when a sitting United States senator confuses the United States Constitution with the constitution of the Confederacy.

This was a huge problem with the Paul Ryan agenda. Focus groups filled with average Americans simply refused to believe the policies they were being shown were actual GOP proposals. They quite literally could not believe the GOP did the things it did.

One thing I hate about Republicans is it is impossible to accurately describe what they believe in neutral and objective terms without sounding like a crazy person.

No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. Poliquin was ahead after the first round of counting was over. He lost after ALL votes were counted. This is such an irresponsible headline to write while Trump is specifically using confusion over vote counting to undercut democracy.
