    A Runoff Election in Louisiana Could Help Democrats Senate Situation

    There is currently a Senate runoff election happening in Louisiana which, if won by Democrat Foster Campbell, would narrow the partisan split to 51-49. It’s a long shot, but a really important one when you consider the already-narrow majority that Republicans hold in the Senate. In the week since Trump’s election, we’ve seen Senate Republicans like John McCain & Rand Paul express hostility…

    You’ve Had a Week to Mourn. Now What?

    Last week, our country elected an orange spray-painted rubber tire as leader of the free world. Since that time, there have been tears, there have been protests, and – since it’s 2016 – there have been memes. But we’re only a week in, and we’ve got four more years of white nationalist fuckery, obnoxious tweets, and racist harassment.  You may…

Trump & Bannon have a great deal in common, making Trump’s choice unsurprising: Like…

    Seriously, Don’t Donate Money to the NC GOP

    In a detestable act of violence, a Republican County Office in North Carolina was firebombed over the weekend, which fortunately resulted in no casualties. Unsurprisingly, both presidential candidates took to Twitter when the news broke to express their dismay (although one was decidedly more, *ahem*, presidential than the other). In an less-expected turn of events, Democrats have now raised over…
