Big wins for Blue

Just a year ago we were in DC for election night.

Well, we all know how THAT turned out!

In the intervening year, almost every one of my fears of a Trump presidency has been met.

And surpassed!

So, in what I hope is a preview for the 2018 mid-terms, the Democrats won big in state and local elections.

Democratic governors in VA and NJ. Huge pickups in the VA legislature. Massive wins in towns and cities across the nation, including right here in Connecticut and my home town, where we picked up seats on all the town boards, with our mayor running unopposed.

This bodes well as Trump's leadership is bringing down his entire party. A lot of Republicans are polling so poorly in advance of next years mid-terms that they're choosing to retire than have to run a campaign that's almost certain to fail.

And Roy Moore, who is Trump's favorite to replace Alabama senator Jeff Sessions (or as I like to call him, "the guy most likely to get fired next") is being loudly and credibly accused of sexually harassing 14 year-old girls.

Any Republicans who defend the guy are going to find themselves out of the legislature and probably unemployable.

Have fun, Republicans! The chickens are coming home to roost!
