A top House Democrat just lost his primary — to a socialist

quote [ For those who closely watch elections, this is the biggest primary upset since then-Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated by David Brat in 2014. Brat ran on a campaign of depicting Cantor as a creature of Washington rather than a true representative of the district ]

OK, this is good to see. Now have to get rid of that shummer guy with his ties to the payday loan industry.

Politics will be very different over the next ten years. Millennials will run the show and, on the whole (yes, yes, lots of intra-group variation), they have views that diverge wildly from what has been settled policy across the board for the past 40 years. Much will change across thew whole of the western world. I think I will like the general drift of this process, even if particulars along the way give me the shits.

Of course in the U.S. this is all looking a bit shaky.

I look forward to having Millennials in power.
