Say what you will about him, but Bill built an empire. Read today's politico story on the arrogance and incompetence of Hillary's campaign organization and wonder what someone with Bill's skills could've done.

If only Portland had any large businesses! Suck it, branch office town!

I give his chances in an off year election 5%. It's going to be mostly disgruntled homeowners and old people (a closely overlapping Venn diagram) voting next time around.

Jeb Lund (@mobute) and @crushingbort on Twitter pretty thoroughly factually eviscerated Kurt's piece. Wish I could say I'm surprised to see the stranger so credulously linking to it.

I wouldn't be so pessimistic. Block grants are going to be the order of the day, so red state transit might be fucked but hopefully Inslee and the legislature will give transit a share here.

21: Correct. Here's a 'fun' fact: since the Affordable Care Act passed, Dems have, on net, lost:

12 Senators

65 House

11 Govs

900+ state legislators

12 states to 1 party control
&

The Presidency

Obama was a once a generation political talent, and comparing Bernie to him is unfair. That said, you'd better believe that every state party apparatus was busy telling their flocks that Hillary was the "safe choice", and of course she ran up her delegate counts in blood red states a dem would never ever carry in in the general, but point this out and you're told to check your privilege. Well, the laugh's on the scolds, a few more points in the rural rust belt counties Bernie thumped Hillary in and we'd have a D president. Oh well.

I should note that obviously Trump is a clown and a terrible person. I didn't vote for him. My anger is directed at the party apparatus who cleared the field for possibly the most inappropriate candidate for a change election and shouted down the 'Berniebros' as misogynist for pointing out the obvious. Well, now we all get to see actual misogyny in action!

Haha, these responses are making my case better than I ever could. Enjoy the next two decades of conservative dominance while the world's on fire, the callout culture is really working!

PS: Trump won white women, and improved on Mitt's performance with African Americans, and even with Latinos/Latinas. Are 1/3 of Latinos racist morons?

That's adorable that you think the midterms are going to help. Dems are likely going to lose the Senate seats in West Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Montana, and probably at least one of Ohio/Florida/Pennsylvania too. I wouldn't be surprised if the GOP ends up with 60+ seats and a filibuster proof majority. (Assuming the filibuster survives that long).

And the House isn't going to change either. Incumbent reelection rate in this "angry" cycle? 97%.

If you want change, move to a rust belt state and try to influence people without being a dick about it. Hint: don't call them racist misogynists or use the term 'privilege' or 'intersectionality.'
