It was an excellent speech!
On Twitter, #BlueWave2016 is about retaining the White House and taking back the Senate and as much of the House as we can get.
Here are some of the down-ticket races I’m following:
I’m keeping my eye on HI-2 where Tulsi Gabbard is being primaried today by Shay Chan Hodges. No matter what the outcome, Tulsi is dead to me. I would consider supporting the R over her. UPDATE: Gabbard won the primary.
Eleven Senate seats are competitive this year: Nevada, Arizona, Missouri, Illinois (Tammy Duckworth), Wisconsin (Russ Feingold), Indiana (Evan Bayh), Ohio, Florida, North Carolina (Deborah Ross), Pennsylvania (Katie McGinty) and New Hampshire. We only need 5.
Please spend any spare time and money helping these folks so that Hillary doesn’t have to deal with a crappy Congress.
Which down-ticket races are you following?
Well, that was fun.
Now on to the general. You’d think this would be easy–a brilliant, prepared, qualified human being running against a megalomaniac demagogue. But no–this is America where the media gets to shape the narrative and we all recognize that shape.
Republican convention: America, we think you’re stupid.
Democratic convention: America, please don’t be stupid.
This is an open thread.
Wait–there’s more–lots more! So don’t stop me now.
Yesterday was kick-ass. The convention maintenance staff is still sweeping up glass shards. Big Dawg stole the show. (MSNBC and CNN completely missed the point and Twitter negated every thing they said!)
These are still the Twitter hashtags with the cute little icons.
There is also a Twitter account @DemConvention to follow.
Day 3 features Newtown’s own Erica Smegielski whose mom was the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School, Felicia Sanders & Polly Sheppard, survivors of the Mother Emanuel Church shooting in Charleston, SC., Jamie Dorff, wife of an Army helicopter pilot, VP Joe Biden, and President Obama, and other people not listed in the official website.
I’m still with CSPAN over MSNBC or CNN but I recommend waiting until Gavel In before tuning in. Seems they got suckered into covering the whiners while waiting.
