Who Cares Which Democrat Comes Out on Top?

The new Congress will not be sworn in until after the New Year, but, at long last, the results of the 2018 midterm elections are finalized and certified. It looked good for Democrats from the moment the polls closed on Election Day; it looks even better now.
The “blue wave” Democrats were hoping for, along with everyone else aware of the clear and present danger Donald Trump poses, materialized; the Trump Party got schlonged.
Trump knows it; so do the miscreants in his administration who are working hard night and day to “deconstruct” the worthwhile things the government does. So do House and Senate Republicans, respectable media columnists, and the talking heads on the cable networks.
Except for Trump himself, most of them also know that Trump has mainly himself to thank for the GOP’s defeat.
Those of us who appreciate the urgency of minimizing the harm Trump and his minions do should give thanks for his narcissism-driven obtuseness and for his ineptitude. Not just us: were reason more in control, everyone would be giving thanks.

Republicans are my leverage in extortion.
Hate Trump? Give me candidates that are representative of the working class or I will watch him (and his ilk) wreck your world.
The people crying loudest about Tump must be the people that have the most to lose with him in power. People with the most to lose are not bargaining from a position of strength.
Remember that. Remember that when you force feed a neo liberal candidate upon me.

we can start celebrating. Until then, we have to continue the pressure on our Democratic pols to impeach the boy.
