    You know, sometimes, I feel like progressive Democrats collectively feel like an abused spouse. We're afraid of getting our hopes up, especially over something that we're rationally aware may not happen. We're always braced for the next slap. It's easier to lower our expectations than to keep having our dreams dashed. We can't stop thinking about where we could have gone wrong, even if things seem to actually be in the process of going right. I think you'll find that most real Kossacks who are fretting about this race fit that mold. The nasty Busby-bashers are all trolls.

    You guys are doing an amazing job, and honestly even if Busby loses, this is a victory. Not a moral victory, a real one that makes the longer-term war more winnable. You made the Republicans spend a shitload of money in the deep-red zone and proved once and for all the value of the 50-state strategy. Kudos to all of you. I sent money and I'm glad I did. We need to contest every seat this hard. Imagine if we had a 50-50 chance of winning every red district in the country!
