big win for dems in MO

In a special election for a house seat in Missouri yesterday, the democrats won in a district that Trump carried by 30 points.

I am less than thrilled at the prospect of Pelosi being speaker again, but man it's looking like a real possibility.

Looks like a very meaningful win for the democrats.

I thought you recently said the Democrats were terrified of the next election?

It will certainly make the impeachment proceedings more efficient.

I did. And they are. Of course they are. They got creamed by the least likeable candidate ever to run, in 2016.

But this can only be seen as a good sign for them, unless there was some unique dynamic at play I'm not aware of...

I'm not an irrational ideologue Paul, and I think you know that. I'm not Sean Hannity.

It certainly will. They won't even need to concern themselves with whether or not there was an impeachable offense.
