    No disagreement there, we’ve seen the consequences of the GOP stacking the deck. It’s just that confirming judges plus passing BBB and raising minimum wage and increasing healthcare and codifying Roe and gun control and yada yada yada is a lot better than just confirming judges.

    If they take the House, they can also pave the way to wipe all these investigations off the board.

    First of all things are not trending for the Red Wave that the media keeps telling us is a lock. Last week the generic ballot showed the Dems with the advantage (usual caveat here about polling sucking and the generic ballot is nothing more than a plot point really) going from like 4 points down to 2 points up and that was before Trump's problems. I am not saying the GOP won't take the House but it is not a guarantee anymore and considering all they are running on is "Women Are Incubators", "Defund the FBI", "2020 Was Stolen" and "Gay People Are Ruining Books and Children" they are having issues. That stuff works when the economy is tanking, gas is ridiculous and unemployment is high...otherwise people tend to ignore the culture war bs no matter who is doing it.

    But if they do take the House...then Kepler is correct.

Basically, there is no positive reason the GOP would cut funding for these states.
    There has been rumors floating around that the GOP is having issues fundraising going back to before the Trump melodrama. Now he is sucking all of the money up for his grift. Plus, even though they are all fellating him even when he changes his lies mid-story their polling isn't going up. Rubio is showing that as are a few others.

    There was a reason the party wanted Trump nowhere near the Midterms, between that and Dodds (plus the economy seemingly rebounding) the GOP went from a stone cold cake walk to a lot of problems all at once.

    We also push through a bunch of great bills in the Senate and force the Nazis to vote them down. Get them on the record for their decrepit and inhumane agenda.

    Yes, he is another of Koch's moral defectives. Scott Walker. Bobby Jindal. Tom Coburn. Paul Ryan.

    These were the scum of the scum before Dump showed us the GOP can always go lower.

    Dan Sullivan and likely soon to be Congressman Nick Begich.

    I don’t think I’ve seen an ad for Begich that was paid for by his campaign, all of his advertising has been from AFP.

    GOP is pulling ads for Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

    AZ and PA make sense based on polling. The Wisconsin decision is puzzling.

    No chance this is the reason, only because candidates get huge discounts on airing ads. Super PACs have to pay full freight, so even if they’re flush with cash, the aforementioned strategy would be stupid and wasteful.

    The Fetterman campaign has been about the most brilliant and hilarious campaign I've ever seen. I know very little about the man or his politics. But he immediately recognized that a traditional "on the issues" campaign against a Trump-propped quack like Dr. Fucking Oz is a loser. Oz has no policies. He has no politics. He's running on Trumpism and "come on guys it's me, Dr. Oz!".


    The recent tweets about Oz' crudite (way to seem like a normal dude!) are nothing short of amazing.
