It was literally a commentary that their are more centrist Dems than people are perceiving, much like most people on the coasts were assuming Hilary was going to win in 2016 in a blowout, showing how out of touch they are with a lot of the people in the country.

As an aside, even if you don't think McGrath can't win or if you think she's a terrible candidate, her massive fundraising so far means that she can force Republicans to badly overspend in KY just to keep the Senate Majority Leader's seat, benefiting other down-ballot races and out of state races. $40m is not even close to peanuts in a Senate race.

Or it's a big loss for people who want to keep big money out of politics.

I don't think the Kentucky Democratic primary race is changing whether or not big money will continue to be in politics. It's pretty clearly a good thing to force that turtle-faced fuckbag to have to work hard and spend lots to keep his seat.

Ok, so play this out for me. McGrath loses in the primary and the money goes back to her donors. How does that help anyone or change anything about campaign finance? Will McConnell work with Dems and provide a vote for reform that McGrath wouldn't have?

Sinema beat McSally, Arpaio was a Sheriff

I’m sure the price of the painted yellow sign is comparable to that of a billion dollar budget cut. What’s the actual funding source for the sign? Is it even tax dollars?

ffs

Has the press always been this submissive? These prancing liars just consistently escape any kind of push back on camera.

As someone who has been out at protests multiple times per week in NYC, I have never heard the chant "Pigs In A Blanket, Fry 'Em Like Bacon"...

Also, the supposed billion dollar cut comes by transferring the salaries of school resource officers to the already overburdened DOE. It's like nothing was done at all...

It's still fucked up to think that this is the President saying this stuff.

I don't know how it works in NY, but isn't just removing the SRO's at least a small win? Or are other groups doing the same thing with a different name?

They’re not removing them, they’re just being put under the education budget instead of the police budget. It’s a spit in the face to everyone who asked for money to be moved from the NYPD to the education system.
