Depressing, isn't it? I mean, really, really depressing. Why does a comedy show make me so depressed?
But maybe this will help. This is Elizabeth Warren's speech on the Senate floor:
Of course, she lost. Citigroup got its way,... as usual. But at least she spoke out. At least she was willing to rock the boat.
I wish I could vote for Elizabeth Warren,... for president, maybe? Yeah, that's probably just wishful-thinking, huh? But she's really impressive, isn't she? At the very least, she needs to get enough support that other Democrats will take notice.
After all, running away from their own president, their own party, their own successes didn't help them much last month, did it? Maybe they got more campaign donations that way, but since they still lost, what good was it?
But yeah, expecting Democratic politicians to learn from that experience is really wishful-thinking, isn't it?
