24 Democrats have lots to offer in this pre-election year. Their promises will be piled high on your plate before the real theatrics even get started. The stage is set with twin House and Senate bills calling for universal health care and election-stealing changes for the people to “renew Americans’ faith in our democracy.”
Conservatives got even when the Electoral College dashed Hillary Clinton’s dream. Now Democrats are getting even with us. They are making America miserable. Lucky they have Trump. Without this deplorable president it would be all too obvious to their base just how useless and irresponsible they are.
Had Virginia Governor Ralph Northam committed a crime he might be in less hot water than he is now over a decades-old picture. Politicians can salvage their careers after a criminal conviction, but no apologies will save them from a search and destroy political climate where the slightest allegation of racism spells the end.
It’s been a long time coming but Democrats own the House today. They’re ready to make big waves in Washington after riding in with the usual enthusiasm we hear whenever party leadership changes. Later the optimism will fizzle as lawmakers get down to the nuts and bolts reality of doing nothing.
