Wednesday Reads: Wash your hands…Posted: March 11, 2020 | |
So, the night went as planned:
I don't feel like gloating I feel extremely relieved but still wary because there's still a long way to go for America to be safe again.

However, if Bernie does that…it just makes the stunt he pulled in 2016 even more disgusting.
Also, about 2016:
Becoming more obvious that tons of people who voted Bernie in ‘16 were really just voting against Hillary Clinton. Demoralizing on several levels. https://t.co/c53LlwTWjm

White men hate Hillary a lot more than they hate Biden. This makes me relieved for 2020 and pissed still for 2016. https://t.co/RiZqjZ5Uoj

One thing is proven tonight with tremendous finality — 25 years of demonizing Hillary Rodham Clinton really worked in 2016.
— Charles P. Pierce (@CharlesPPierce) March 11, 2020
also thank you to @JoyAnnReid for stating one obvious thing tonight; being a woman hindered Clinton & Biden being a man is helping his case.

So, Sanders perceived ability to create a big coalition was an effect of men’s sexism in 2016. https://t.co/fzngEo9njF

And this tweet from Ezra is especially, what is the word…fucked? Coming from his misogynistic jerk:
Following the Clinton-Sanders race with the Biden-Sanders race is almost like a natural experiment in — to put it gently — the role gender plays in voter preferences and judgments about electability.
— Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) March 11, 2020
“To put it gently?” Ezra can piss off.
The look on this brother’s face when Biden tells the redneck he’s full of shit 😭💀 pic.twitter.com/kZbjg7bdM6

While everyone's focused on the POTUS primary, remember we have so much ground to make up in state legislatures the run-up to redistricting next year.
It's great to see Democratic candidates continuing what we started in VA in 2017 by flipping state legislative seats #RedToBlue! https://t.co/mVOkS7Iqrg
