Senate Dems Throw Elizabeth Warren-Shaped Bone To Annoying Liberal Base

News

The Huffington Post reports that popular populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren will assume a new leadership role in the rump Democratic caucus.


She will be "crafting the party's messaging and policy" in a "new position created specifically for her," which is a notable departure from what happened the last time a position was created specifically for her and Richard Cordray filled it instead, how rude!

There's no word yet on what the new position will be called, so we'll just go with Tribune of the Plebs.

Warren was an energetic and popular surrogate for Democrats in the 2014 midterms, which, no, did not go so well, but that's hardly her fault. She drew enthusiastic crowds in territory that's hostile to Democrats, demonstrating that maybe speaking and acting like a Democrat if you are a Democrat is a good move for Democrats?

When reporting on Warren's elevation, Bloomberg News noted:

"The move to include Warren in leadership -- working with Schumer -- reflects the main point of tension for Democrats as they try to recapture the Senate in two years: Their activists want to rein in Wall Street’s influence and their candidates need Wall Street’s money to compete."

That ship has sailed, though, and bon voyage to it: Republicans got "some 70 percent" of Wall Street's contributions this cycle, down from a 50/50 split as recently as 2010.

To paraphrase history's most effective drunken asshole Winston Churchill, you can always count on Democrats to do the right thing -- after they get their brains beat in with votes and all the money dries up.

Well, lordy Jesus, that was 10 minutes of our life we're never going to get back.

A few minutes ago, all the reporters on Twitter started saying, "Um, we are getting called to the Rose Garden and we don't know why." Democrats were supposed to be meeting with Trump about Infrastructure Week, but instead, this was happening:

Hooray! There was a sign in the Rose Garden! It said how big the Mueller Investigation was! And most importantly the Mueller Investigation said NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION, PREZNIT TRUMP GOOD, NOT A RUSSIAN.

Alex Díaz de la Portilla on Facebook

Alex Díaz de la Portilla, former Florida Republican state senator, is in hot water over a leaked WhatsApp chat log that appears to show campaign workers chatting about destroying or disappearing absentee ballots filled out for the candidate's opponent in the nonpartisan county election, according to the Miami New Times. Díaz de la Portilla ultimately came in third in the May 2018 special election for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, so even if some of his people did deep-six some ballots, it didn't apparently help him. Clearly, these pikers could have learned a lot from the experts in North Carolina about electoral fuckery.

Still, you have to appreciate just how brilliantly Díaz de la Portilla plays the role of a local pol accused of just a teensy bit of ratfucking.
