This week Kansas City newsies glossed over an important debate for the heart & soul of the Democratic Party that hits close to home.
To wit . . .
AOC DUNKED ON FORMER MISSOURI SENATOR CLAIRE McCASKILL AND DOUBLES DOWN ON PROGRESSIVE POLICY DESPITE CONGRESSIONAL LOSSES FOR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY!!!
An inappropriate term cost the argument for politico turned pundit McCaskill.
And while her thesis wasn't very well hashed out . . . As far as the heartland is concerned, she's got a point.
Amid the joyous celebration for a Biden victory let's not forget that the Democratic Party was MOSTLY WIPED OUT AND RELEGATED TO SUPER MINORITY STATUS IN BOTH MISSOURI AND KANSAS.
Rep. Sharice Davids was the only bright spot and that's just because so many incompetent old school GOP dudes literally chased voters away with online trolling and hate speech targeting the incumbent and her stupid t-shirt.
Moreover, Amanda Adkins is a smart and capable power player in Kansas politics but her hapless donors and campaign managers decided to dress her up like a housewife instead of sharing her skill, savvy and impressive intelligence with voters.
But I digress . . .
The point here is simple . . .
DOWN BALLOT AND ACROSS THE NATION THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOST GROUND VIA THE SOCIALIST TAG!!!
For all the fear about increasing American divisions . . . A big picture review of election 2020 reveals a surprising endorsement of the status quo and politicos who didn't escalate social media culture war slap fighting.
And whilst it's easy and fun to beat up on Claire McCaskill. At the very least we should acknowledge that her concern about Democratic Party values, messaging and policy has taken into account very real losses this cycle that only look to get worse.
