    2018 looks to be a nightmare for the jackass party.

    Republicans defend only 8 Senate seats while the dimocrats have 23 seats on the line plus 2 independents that caucus with them, Sanders and King. Twenty-five altogether with several already on rocky ground. Could be a turkey shoot.

    The Dems would have been smart to select Tim Ryan instead of Ancient Crone Nanster as House Speaker. The aging Boomers and Silent Generation Dems are stifling their young. Which is pretty consistent with their MEMEME zeitgeist.

    Oh, and this is now evergreen:

    I doubt that Ryan would've worked out because of D state finances. The Ds have pretty much run out of OPM in the states they have traditionally controlled. While there are different ways of ranking how screwed up states are the blue states pretty much own the top five rankings in all ways of ranking and the majority of the twenty worst states. With a decline in federal taxes most of the blue and purple states with state income taxes will be in Chapter 3 by 2020, maybe 2018.
