Centrist bro Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton is in a MOOD, you guys. And we get it, honestly. Everybody made fun of him and all his white guy friends in the House beating their chests against the she-demon Pelosi, and then his constituents yelled at him because apparently actually they like (???) Nancy Pelosi and want her to be speaker of the House and they don't just listen to whatever Fox News and GOP attack ads say about her, like Moulton does. And then his tiny coalition of anti-Pelosi wunderkinds fell apart and everybody pointed and laughed.

He hasn't had a good few weeks. And everybody is saying he totally deserves to be primaried in 2020, for the crime of sucking a lot.

And then? AND THEN. And then new whippersnapper liberal lady girl person human socialist did we say whippersnapper already Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said a very mean thing in a very mean tweet:


RUDE. True, and also RUDE! Except there is one li'l tiny thing that was slightly incorrect in Ocasio-Cortez's tweet, and Seth Moulton was ready to mansplain what it was, and that not only was it a li'l tiny wrong thing, it was a li'l tiny SEXIST WRONG THING, WHY IS ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ THE REAL SEXIST?

In an interview with Boston Public Radio Friday, Moulton, who identifies himself as a progressive Democrat, called Cortez's tweet "offensive," and not just to him, but to legislators like California Democrat and Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Linda Sanchez, who called for a change in House leadership last fall.

"It's offensive because [Sanchez] is in the progressive caucus, she is not to the right of Nancy Pelosi, and it's also offensive because she's a woman," Moulton said.

Oh lordy, Seth Moulton has a friend who is a progressive lady. And she is! As Think Progress notes, Linda Sanchez has actually voted with Trump even less with Pelosi, which is not very fucking much. And Sanchez did call for new leadership in the Democratic caucus! She even signed Moulton's letter about PELOSI R BAD, along with Moulton and ... mostly a bunch of white guys.

Of course, Think Progress also notes, rudely and truly, that Seth Moulton votes with Trump a fuckton more than Pelosi does, as does everybody else on Moulton's list of mostly a bunch of white guys. Sanchez is the (only) exception.

So ... Ocasio-Cortez is pretty much correct as usual, King Friday, so far.

We are curious, though, where in AOC's tweet she said something "offensive" or sexist. Maybe Seth Moulton dreamed it up. Maybe he's just really upset that people didn't see him as a hero of women's rights when he tried to draft Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge to run against Nancy Pelosi on his platform, which may or may not be called, "We Don't Hate ALL Ladies, Just Nancy Pelosi And A Bunch Of Other Ladies Whose Names We Will Announce The Second They Do Something That Annoys Us." Fudge ultimately decided to back Pelosi. (And no, we don't know if that's how Seth Moulton really feels, in his heart. We do know how it comes across, SETH.)

Oh well, anyway, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, WHAT A SEXIST.

She also sexistly tweeted this funny thing at Mike Huckabee, whose tweets would really sound better if he read them aloud while dressed as a hobo clown and honked a funny horn after the punchlines:

LUNAR, not LOONEY! (HONK HONK!)

Anyway, that's AOC telling Mike Huckabee to stuff his lies up his gross fat ass because his asshole daughter is better at being a fucking liar than he is. (She even noticed her typo and followed up with a tweet making fun of herself for it, and also SAYING TWITTER NEEDS A FUCKING EDIT BUTTON, @JACK.)

We feel like AOC is having way too much fun kicking ass right now, and she hasn't even been sworn in yet.

In case you're wondering why the right is attacking her so much ...

Yeah, that's definitely a repurposed animatronic Hillary (YouTube)

A whole bunch of protests were held today against the fake "president's" fake "emergency" declaration, with people turning out in cold crappy weather to call attention to the general nastiness of the guy who claims he absolutely had to do that declaration that wasn't necessary. Organizers with MoveOn.org said over 250 rallies were planned nationwide. So far, the national State Of Emergency doesn't appear to have caused any of the rallies to be cancelled, despite the very real possibility that terrified Honduran refugees fleeing violence in Central America might suddenly show up and ask for asylum.

Are there still actions taking place in your area? Check at MoveOn!

WHAT. IS. PAUL. MANAFORT. HIDING?

Before Manafort pleaded guilty and signed up as a cooperating witness who didn't actually cooperate, we wrote this:

We have always kind of figured that Paul Manafort is the one who knows the whole Trump-Russia conspiracy story. He was the first big fish indicted, and they hit him for A LOT. Also note that just about all the other prosecutions that have come from the Mueller investigation so far have been farmed out by Mueller to different jurisdictions. Manafort, on the other hand, Mueller has kept squarely in his office. There has to be a reason for that.

Perhaps it's because, as this Josh Marshall podcast suggests, Paul Manafort, a foreign agent who worked for Oleg Deripaska, AKA Putin's favorite oligarch, and who got sideways financially with Deripaska, was literally sent into the Trump campaign by the Kremlin to do its dirty work. Perhaps the Steele Dossier is right when it suggests that the entire Trump-Russia election-stealing conspiracy was run by Manafort on the Trump side, and that others like (perhaps!) Michael Cohen only had to take over when Manafort's shit started to stink and the news media started reporting on his weird-ass Russian connections in the summer of 2016.

If it's possible, we are beginning to suspect it may be even worse than that.

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller issued his sentencing recommendations for Manafort, after DC district court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled conclusively that the shady motherfucker very intentionally lied and blew up his cooperating agreement. Because Manafort defaulted, Mueller is no longer bound to recommend that Manafort's sentence be reduced, and is free to throw the book right at Manafort's face. HARD.

And that is what Mueller did! To be clear, the sentencing memo is harsh.
