WATCH: Sen. Elizabeth Warren says that "people are asking" why the Iran strike took place now. #MTP #IfItsSunday@ewarren: "We know Donald Trump is very upset about this upcoming impeachment trial. But look what he's doing now. He is taking us to the edge of war." pic.twitter.com/ChR29Usv6x

UpChuck Todd spends ten minutes of high-dollar Sunday tv time trying to gotcha Warren, but Chris ‘The Mad Bitcher’ Cillizza goes straight for ‘SHE SAID LONG WORDS WHICH IS ELITIST & PROBABLY UNAMERICAN’…
I rarely tweet about stuff like this but I can’t hold back here. Chris, this is embarrassing. Every statement is true & consistent. The reason you were able to cherry-pick her many comments is b/c she’s the only candidate who’s done multiple interviews & media avails about it.

Also lol at Warren being tied with Sanders after all the "calling Soleimani a murderer is warmongering" posts

This is straight up slander from Chris Cillizza. We laugh at how dumb Cillizza is because he’s truly dumb. But we also forget that shit like this defines narratives. It’s Warren right now but this will be Biden if he’s the nominee in September. This brand of journalism is bad. https://t.co/eVvKy1QzjE

Chris just wants there to be a nice noisy horse race until the election, when he dearly hopes we will elect whichever Repub daddy eventually gets shoved to the top of the ticket.
Let’s all keep in mind how good it will feel when The Mad Bitcher has a public breakdown as the Democrats celebrate our new president, come November!

QuinnipiacPoll – Black Voters in South Carolina — November 18
Ben Smith reveals the idiocy and insensitivity of the MSM. You can’t win the nomination if you have anemic support among POC. And they’re not going to warm up to a socialist clown who says “most drug dealers are Black”
I got an idea. Now here me out – we bomb Iran with Chris Cillizza.
@mrmoshpotato: I’m just afraid that would violate the Geneva conventions against the use of poisons!
@Anne Laurie: I am just afraid that would violate the Geneva conventions against the use of
poisons!weapons of mass distraction.
FTFY and I will now let myself out.
@mrmoshpotato: Why do you hate Iranians so much? What did they ever do to you?
Cillizza should be assigned to interview someone he can understand, e.g. Louie Gohmert.
Cillizza knows all the ladies be shifty.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch: If I am reading that correctly, 1/3 of POC have not expressed a preferem=nce yet. Not engaged yet (seems unlikely) or not crazy about anyone?
@WaterGirl: The poll was from mid-November, quite a bit has changed in the race since then.
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
@WaterGirl: altogether 20% said “do not know”. There were some other candidates who had points, Kamala had 6%, Steyer had 4%, a couple others had 1%. I didn’t include them cuz Kamala has dropped out and I didn’t want to type in all the stragglers.
@?BillinGlendaleCA: Then I demand to see the early January numbers! :-) Seriously, though, thanks for catching the date.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch: 1/5 is less alarming than 1/3. Still seems a bit high, but maybe not so high for November.
Interesting idea. But, two things to consider:
1) As Ozark noted (or hinted at), delivering Cillizza as a payload into/onto Iran might be considered a war crime against that nation
2) As any engineer knows, you need to test out the “breadboard” before you release to production. Therefore Cillizza should first be dropped — during a practice run (or as many as it takes to work out the
featuresbugs) — onto Mar-a-Loco, from about 20,000 feet.

@?BillinGlendaleCA: I always thought it was a mistake to focus on who has the best programs, when we face a mortal threat in Dump.
Kamala knew that. And despite all of her programs, Warren didn’t take off until she started taking a 2X4 to Dump.
The rebuttal was “you just can’t win an election opposing Dump, you have to excite the base with single payer”.
This new war has focused the mind.
I have read a number of explanatories of the “sound heard round the world”, this one describes the dynamics of it better than the rest I have read.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch: DEMs want someone who can beat the fuck out of trump. The rest of the get-able electorate need something more.
172 db at 100 miles? Holy shit.
Well, according to some, only a shouty, finger-wagging, sanctimonious, not-a-Corp-o-Dem-like-Elizabeth-Warren, not-exactly-transparent guy from
BrooklynVermont can provide that “something more.”
@SFAW: I’d have been right there with that captain in thinking it was the end of the world.
@SFAW: Everybody has their own idea of what they “need,” but I wasn’t referring to Wilmer’s Wags. I was thinking of places like the suburbs of STL.
@David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch: You don’t remodel the kitchen when the house is on fire.
Didn’t think otherwise, just saw an opportunity to take a cheap shot at Vermont Jesus.
You country boys with your homespun wisdom. Or something.
@SFAW: Heh, “country boys”.
Our dilemma is that the “more” that some of them need is different and often inconsistent with the “more” that the rest of them need.
@Baud: All you need is
What — isn’t Glendale in the boonies of LA? Flyover country?
You kid, but my strategy is to stay a shadowy figure who voters can project their dreams and desires onto.
@Baud: Yeah, there is a sweet spot in every election but I don’t where.what it is at any particular point in time. Obama found it. We have to find it again.
@SFAW: We don’t get many planes flying over Glendale, except that bomber that flew over last week.
I was hoping it was a practice run for dropping Cillizza, but I realized I wouldn’t want to do that to you or the Greater LA area.
@SFAW: “Jamie wants big boom.”
@Baud: As long as you continue to absorb all visible that strikes you, this strategy should be successful.
@Omnes Omnibus: All visible light, that is. Need caffeine.
don’t forget that, statistically speaking, essentially nobody knows who Chris Cillizza is, let alone cares what he thinks about anything.
In a sane media environment, Clizzilla would be looking for a new job.
We’re not in a sane media environment where congresscritters can literally pass around doctored images as proof and no one bats and eye.
