Russia is not a plan

Shaun King has an article asking if the Democratic party understands that they are less popular than Trump right now and if they have any plans to do anything about it.

The other question is, "What exactly is the strategy of the Democratic Party to take back the government from conservatives across the country?"

That one always gets the most laughs. Nobody has any idea. Not once has somebody stood up and said, "Hey, I know the strategy." Hell, I don't know it. I don't think one exists. Whatever the strategy was this past election, it didn't work either. And again, I don't just mean in the presidential election. Democrats lost all over the place in national, state, and local elections.

Rolling Stone has the answer, but you're not going to like it:

One senior House Democrat, who asked for anonymity to discuss party strategy, told me that pushing for a full accounting on Trump and Russia is the best way to turn Trump into an albatross around the necks of congressional Republicans to the point that party leaders like McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan might abandon him.

That's great. Never mind the fact that Democrats are secretly aware that the Russian stuff is overhyped. Never mind that the Obama-voting factory workers in Michigan that didn't turn out for Clinton do not give a shit about Russia. Never mind that getting McConnell and Ryan to abandon Trump would not get the Dems one step closer to taking back Congress or statehouses. The Russia thing ensures that you don't have to make any changes in policy direction, so it's a great strategy.
