This morning, a headline:
After six years, the Republican supermajority in the North Carolina state legislature is dead.
Here’s a word of advice for any men in the House of Representatives who would like to weigh in on the gender dynamics of the Democrats’ ongoing battle over who will be the Speaker of the House: shut the hell up.
We gritted our teeth during the elections, as Republicans dragged your name through the mud. We held ourselves back when a pipe bomb was left in your mailbox. But we cannot wait forever. George Soros, just give us the order, and we will unleash hell!
Nancy Pelosi’s bid to retain her leadership of the House Democrats is under perhaps its most serious threat yet.
Frequent readers of this blog already know: We are not fans of Chuck Schumer, or really any leader of the Democratic Party, particularly at the national level.
This year, a majority of House Democratic candidates endorsed Medicare for All, according to the union National Nurses United. If you had told me in 2014, or even 2016, that this would happen, I would have frowned at you, walked away, and possibly tried to contact someone who cares about you out of concern for your…

Last month we profiled Greg Sagan, the Democratic candidate for Congress in Texas’ 13th district—the single most Republican district in America. He did not win. Greg was kind enough to share his post-election thoughts with us, below.
The reaction to last night’s election results has been mostly along the lines of “so much for that big blue wave we were promised,” but at least the Democrats took back control of the House. The former isn’t entirely wrong, although there were so many bright spots at the state level, but the latter is cold comfort in…
Democrats have the House. Besides not passing horrific bills for a change, what should they do? They should start holding hearings on voter suppression. And they should keep on holding them.
Republicans resoundingly lost control of the House of Representatives in Tuesday’s midterm elections, and saw several of their conservative icons defeated across the country. They did tighten their grip on the Senate, so it was, at best, a mixed night for the GOP. But Fox News’ dedicated crew of sofa sycophants spent…
Well, they did it: The Democrats have been projected to win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Joe Biden, who has been mulling a run for president since the moment his last run for president ended, has still not made up his mind on whether or not he is going to run for president.
