    If I were the D-Trip, I'd have national TV up right now, showing national parks reopening, veterans getting care from the VA, seniors and the disabled getting Social Security checks, and so on, reminding viewers in no uncertain terms that "Democrats Did This. Republicans Tried To Stop It."

    And then over the course of the next year, start localizing the campaign to highlight individual stories in individual districts, always with the reminder that "Republicans Tried To Stop It."

    Look, we're up against a band of crazed nihilists here with no coherent goal except to make 230 years of government crumble into dust. We're fighting not only for individual candidates but for the entire concept of the common good, as expressed through competent governing. And we've got an incredibly powerful group of opponents arrayed against us.

    We can't treat this like a normal campaign. It's not.

    Intended to be a factual statement.
