    “We need more Olympias and Susans, more Kirstens and Claires. We need more women who are willing to, heaven forbid, work with members of the opposite party to get the people’s work done,” continued Bennett. “We need more women who are willing to stand up to extremists hell-bent on systematically dismantling women’s access to reproductive choices and options.”
    The problem is precisely that the first sentence and second sentence of that quote are mutually contradictory. You can either have people who are willing to reach across the aisle, or you can have people willing to stand up to extremists. But you can't have both anywhere but fantasyland, given the current nature of the Republican Party.

    oops. I hope the gate wasn't too expensive.
