Tweet of the Day, And We Thought That The Age Of Miracles Had Passed edition.

You know who’s looking at this Tweet, and grinning?

A bunch of Republican Senators who are up for reelection. Forcing* Democratic candidates to embrace an F rating from the NRA is an excellent way for Democrats to lose a bunch of Senate races.  Admittedly, the Democrats were going to lose ’em anyway, but it’s always nice to have a backup plan in place.

*There are places where being a full-fledged gun control activist is not a hindrance to one’s electoral processes. It’s just that typically those places don’t have incumbent Republican Senators representing them.

  1. He is demanding that all Democrats choose between him and an electoral future as something other than a rump party representing regional/cultural enclaves.*
    I’m sure that he will be dropped very gently out of the back of that bus.
    Something the media was proclaiming about the Republicans if they did not adopt the policies of the Democrats. However, the GOP never had a president announcing that all members of the party had to closely align themselves to his policies, instead giving them room to maneuver to match their constituents.
    The Democrats are going “Full Inner Party Politburo in Defiance of Reality.” You never go “Full Inner Party Politburo in Defiance of Reality.”

  2. I find it hard to see how this damages Webb’s brand.
    There’s something to be said for being the most prominent sane member of your political party.

    1. Exactly. It’s not as if Obama’s got a lot of success pushing candidates across the finish line.

      I can’t see any way this helps Webb, but I don’t see any way it hurts him, either.

    1. I don’t trust Sanders and the 2A. It’s a political opportunism unique to VT. Take him out of the state, and the electoral votes don’t mean much – he’ll get them anyway , he’ll get all graspy.

      1. With the caveat that Sanders isn’t going after Hillary in a way that would normally be associated with someone seeking the nomination .. yes.
        Once nominated, he’ll probably slide into the typical east-coast lib-repub answer to abortion – “personally opposed to gun-grabbing but …”
