Here’s the problem the Democrats in this state have–they all already voted for stringent anti-abortion measures, it’s a Democrat who can tell who are illegal aliens just by looking at them, a Democrat who thinks rape is different now than it was in his day, the Democratic candidate for governor who came out against gay adoption and ooooooooo Socialist Venezuela, and so on.
So, how is my life, as a Lefty in this state going to be any worse?
I see Lindsey is thinking along these same lines, so it’s not just an idle question by me.
Democrats already hated the lefty parts of their base, so what? The Republicans are going to double super-secret hate us?
Or will they trot out the bogeyman of “But what about our national agenda?!” Well, Democrat’s national agenda has also been to be impatient, embarrassed, and pissed at the progressives. So, again, for me, what will the difference be?
Honestly, Democrats better hope progressives feel a little pinch these next two years or it’s going to be very hard for them to argue that progressives should turn out to support them.
