    Its not pandering at all it is just explaining why old white men of a certain generation buy into the crap they do. (specifically why Faux works for them while it struggles with younger generations) That generation happens to be the Boomers for the purposes of this story. It isn't comparing it or contrasting it, just saying "Hi I am a White Old Guy who didn't buy in but here are the factors for why many did". It is no different than the stuff we say here all the time.

    Gen X and Millennials will have completely different issues when we hit that age. We wont be much better we will just be different in our dickishness.

    So, he's pandering. And you followed it. Anything for clicks.

    Rubio seems to be trying to replace McConnell...I am not sure if he means himself or someone else but he definitely is not happy.

    In fairness, most state legs are so gerrymandered already that it's almost impossible for them to get redder even if there was a red wave.

    Iowa was a fucking bloodbath second only to Florida, and yet they only picked up 1 or 2 seats in each chamber in the state house because there weren't any more to take. They basically have everything outside of Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and the college towns already.
    Except the flips prove it is more than just "The GOP held serve" which is the common retort. The states that need Blue Waves got them in spades. While the media fawns over FL and their gerrymandered Red Wave the truth is the GOP lost ground all over the map. The Blue Wall that failed in 2016 is back and stronger because in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania there will be no state leg skullduggery.

    This is more than just "you can't squeeze blood from a turnip".

    Hey Drew: https://twitter.com/nprpolitics/stat...17346843738113

    During the 2022 primaries, Democrats attempted to boost far-right Republican candidates who they thought would be easier to defeat in a general election. That strategy seems to have worked.

    Good shot at Nevada now in the Senate? I would breathe a sigh of relief if that happens.

    Remarkable: this will be the first midterm the party in power hasn't lost a *single* state legislative chamber since 1934.
    That is...wow!
