No one really cares about all those states in the middle of the country, right? And Republicans love anything defense-related? I propose ambitious nuclear testing in the midwest and southwest. Throw in the South too, I'll happily accept getting bombed for the greater good.

Or how about we as liberals demand that the DNC stop sucking Wall Street's dick and start giving half a shit about the 100 million of our fellow Americans that do not live in San Francisco and Brooklyn and Austin? As I said in IRC, this is Clinton's doing... Bill Clinton. The DNC told the middle of the country to go fuck itself, and they tuned into Fox News for 20 years. That is how you get Trump.

Dean pushed the 50 state strategy and the DNC fought him. Even after he delivered the House in 2006.

At least the Evangelicals hate Trump, so at least we got that to share as a starting point.

I have a lot of respect for Ammon Hennacy, Dorothy Day. Philip Berrigan, and Vernard Eller, but they're such a minority that I don't think they're relevant. I'd welcome any evidence to the contrary.

The evidence is all anecdotal. The Evangelicals at work hate him. He's twice divorced, hung out with Hollywood drugies, ran casinos. Will be fun to watch over the next month or so as people adjust.

You may very well get your wish. We fucking deserve it.
