Republicans have killed any chance of even having a vote on the bipartisan bill that passed the Senate, nor will they come up with their own. That's a great opportunity to bring our folks to the polls when the normally would not. Furthermore, the recent border issues have naturally caused the GOP to trot out the worst of the worst of its racists. We've got one GOP congressman even calling for war against Mexico and a military invasion! That's exactly what we need to motivate Latinos.
With the Hobby Lobby fallout, Republicans are now waging total war on contraception. Contra-fuckin-ception! What better issue could Democrats have to motivate our women. We aren't talking abortion, but an issue over which there is almost unanimity among American women. You've got to have a screw loose to be against birth control, but they are.
The Tea Party message from the Mississippi election is clear: Black voters are illegitimate. On top of Supreme Court decisions gutting the Voting Rights Act, and a slew of new laws to try and stop Black voters from voting by creating barriers to the ballot box, now even voters who clear those hurdles are not legitimate. Simply, the message to black voters is if you vote, you're a fraud and a criminal. That's exactly what I like to hear from Republicans because I know that gets black voters pissed. Especially considering all we went through to get the right to vote.
All we need is for the GOP to begin waging war on young people and this election isn't going to go like the Washington Media Establishment has told us it would. Turns out that the Republicans throwing out their only Jewish member of Congress isn't a harbinger of GOP resurgence, but a rear guard action against the Coalition of the Ascendant. That's a battle we know we can win because there is no question which group has the electoral growth and momentum.
Even I hadn't expected that 2014 would be an election over cultural issues, but that is exactly the kind of election that is taking shape. They've got nothing on foriegn policy or the economy. Nor are they saying a word about jobs, thankfully. They aren't even pimping the deficit. With the GOP in retreat on ObamaCare and marriage equality, and now even going as far as raising the flag of impeachment of President Obama, I can't think of a better landscape for which Democrats can nationalize this election.
A battle over who is cultural majority in America. White, old, rural, Evangelical men versus everyone else. Perfect!
