    And while I'm at it, I'd just like to say a few things about Pelosi. which means saying a few things about me. 

    I have no doubt I'm older than most of you. I don't care. You know why? Because I'm old enough to stop giving a rat's ass what other people think of me. (It's glorious, believe me.) I'm not nearly as old as Pelosi but I'm damn sure she feels the same. I'm damn sure a big part of her wants to be Speaker as a giant middle finger to those under the right trying to cower the left into enacting that lovely ageist phrase, "bring in new blood" (something they save for women). The right would like nothing more than to see the left thrown into a war for the throne, and then be led by someone completely inexperienced. They are licking their chops...why else all the vitriol against her?

    I hate with the intensity of a thousand suns, when the right manages to convince the left of something against their own interest. Pelosi is smarter—and more of a lawfully, entire-country-minded legislator—than McConnell, and she's only 2 years older. Does the left hate anyone more (after trump) than McConnell? Do you see the right talking about needing new blood??

    Pelosi knows what she's doing, and how to do it. She gets shit done. She's the one behind the big push toward the healthcare talking points. She would, as she has always done, and as all the women do in Congress, mentor the new women coming in. They need someone who knows the ropes, and who is NOT afraid to take the heat. Pelosi has been the punching bag of the right for a long time, and For Good Reason. 
    Well said. Republicans tried to use her as the boogeyman (boogeywoman?) this election, as they always do, and they got fucking clobbered in the House. 

    Also I want to see her sitting behind Trump during the next State of the Union. You know he'd hate that, and it would be great.

    I’m not gonna say don’t argue about politics in a political thread, but I will say there’s a more general political thread not devoted to voting that you could argue in. 

    But we've been conditioned to be terrified of that thread through its subtle abuse. That thread is an uncle who took us into a back room at a birthday party.

    "I was promised voting sticker selfies and now they're arguing about CNN, make it stop!"

    I had to double check to make sure that this was real.  It is.  Trump thinks the Presidency is a reality show.

    I hate the idea of sanctions, and, I have thought EVERY move he has made has been WRONG - but - that is his best tweet ever.
