One by one - blackmail works. Even on the first day of this congression session, when elected House Speakers told their constituents they intended to abstain in protest to our party returning Nancy to power - they folded. What message does that send? Paul Ryan was a horrible miserable corporatist shill for the GOP as House Speaker - and so is Nancy. By historical record.
I am more hopeful about new House Members like Ocasio-Cortez who will challenge Ms. Pelosi, who were elected by their constituents to challenge both the GOP establishment and the Dem establishment as well as the President of the United States, than I am witnessing our party return a corporatist status quo hot mess like Pelosi to the Speaker's position - when we didn't have to. When the people were never the ones begging for Pelosi's return.
It is what it is. The government is in shut down mode and has been for two weeks. That should be priority one. Before we pose for the camera's and call for impeachment and... name call.
