Okay, so... I just watched a clip about Beto O'rorke (I think that's how he spells it.) shutting down a republican. And god damn, if there was a politician like that up here, they'd have my vote.
And then it hit me: the republican was laughing about KIDS getting MURDERED in school.
Let's say there's a massive blue wave in the midterms. A progressive landslide... these republicans will have nothing left to lose. They already have to cheat to win, and it still reflective of some tight margins, on top of being programmed to believe that a loss for them means a broken system. This election seems like it's quickly turning into a referendum on the republican party: but that's still the party that has spent the last FORTY YEARS dehumanizing everyone who isn't one of them, and fostering anger. What happens when they lose en masse?
They won't. Because apparently it's a bigger problem that Beto used NAUGHTY LANGUAGE to call out the guy heckling the deaths of children.
