Nancy, Nancy, Nancy. đź™„

I don’t think Nancy is completely pulling impeachment off the table but I get so damn tired of someone telling us No all the time.

I’ve heard that she’s concerned with moderates who might suffer a backlash if the House impeaches. Let me put that to idea to rest where it comes to Pennsylvania. We redistricted last year. Democratic voters overturned a bunch of seats. It made a huge difference. And those of us who got shoved in Moderate D districts, like Conor Lamb, are not going to vote for a Republican Representative. In fact, Lamb has so many of Mike Doyle’s Democrats, he should be very worried that he’s not kissing up to us enough. We gave him a decisive victory. But ok, if he wants a close race next time, blow us off. Pretend all of us Hilary voters don’t exist.

I might run against him.

It could happen.

Nancy is also not inclined to show Hilary voters any respect. There’s no sympathy for those of us who had our votes stolen. No movement towards righting that wrong. We’re just supposed to suck it up Year after year. It’s incredibly demotivating, Nancy.

Now, I know she’s not ruling it out. I saw some conditions in her comments yesterday. And she was one of the gang of eight who were briefed on the national security threat that Trump’s associations with Russia posed. Remember Andrew McCabe told us about that? She knows more than we do. Is she just going to bide her time until the truth comes out?

That’s one scenario.

The other is that she will get freaked out by the prospect of a bunch of white guys voting for Trump no matter what and we never get satisfaction.

I just think that’s the wrong message to send. For so many reasons.
