Please allow me to introduce myself, I’m a man of wealth and taste. I’ve been around for a long, long year- stolen many a man’s soul to waste. I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and pain. Made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands, and sealed his fate. Pleased to meet you, hope you guessed my name. But what’s puzzling you is the, nature of my game.

I figured out something today as I was thinking- My ideological leanings are off in 2018’s politics. I’m definitely in agreement with Democrats on things like taxes, unions, reproductive rights, the environment, public education, and a host of other things. I just don’t hate Republicans like most partisan activists hate each other.

I’m trying to figure it out. I really am.

Today’s candidate of the day is Susan Wild, the Democratic nominee in PA-7, my home district. Susan was not initially my pick back in the primary, but she is absolutely mine now. I share her political values and think she’ll vote right.

Susan is going to Washington to make sure Lehigh Valley residents have access to quality health care. Her opponent will go to Washington to vote for Donald Trump’s agenda. I can’t have that from my Congressperson. Join me in donating to her here. Volunteer here.

Today’s GOTV playlist:

  2. Aerosmith- Cryin’
  3. Notorious B.I.G.- Back to Cali
  4. Oasis- Wonderwall
  5. Rancid- Timebomb

I almost feel bad for Clayton Kershaw. For as great as we’re told he is, he quite literally can’t win the big one. Tonight he simply got out pitched- by David Price, no less. That’s David Price that three weeks ago was considered a loser in big games too, but then morphed into Mr. October.

Maybe it’s time for the Dodgers to accept what is. Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen are that bad on the big stage. I’m not sure what else to say.

Tonight’s GOTV story from the past- the year was 2013, the setting was the shadow of Gotham. It was Rockland County to be exact, the place my parents once lived before I was born. Our candidate was David Fried, now a judge in Ramapo. I was air dropped in just a couple weeks before the September primary with my “cop partner” Sally, and we won an upset for the nomination. While our cast of former Clinton Administration/Campaign hands came up like 200 votes short in the end of the Executive’s office, the late night data and beer festivals and meeting President Clinton was a thrill.

*********************************************

I’ll expand on this tomorrow, but I’m calling a 2006-esque 30 seat gain for Democrats in the House, and a 225-210 Majority. That could be a problem.
