Dear people who are voting in Democratic primaries for the first time,
The Democratic Party has had liberals in it for a long time, so showing up and immediately demanding that non-moderates drop out is like moving into a house where people already live and trying to replace all the furniture and decor on the first day. Try getting to know us a little bit and compromising. Maybe we can pair your armchair with our couch, and we could go in together on a rug and a coffee table.
I’m going to look into this more, but on the birdsite I found this in the replies to someone asking Smith about it.
Yes, I said “that” when I should’ve said “whom,” but I do know the difference. It refers to “dealers” and not “people,” after all. Think of it as a way to show my disdain for those dealers through pronouns.
You can be eloquent and speak plainly at the same time. #PeteButtigieg showed how it’s done yesterday while announcing his presidential candidacy. He wrote the speech and delivered it perfectly, and he did it without even mentioning 45*. After all, our political landscape is populated with others like 45* and worse, so there’s a lot of work to do. Mayor Pete is ready to bring respect and compassion to government. A majority of the country is ready, too. This is the future that Democrats want.
