6/21 Dave Weigel: Georgia’s Lesson: All Politics Is Tribal

June 21, 2017

Are people starting to notice that Republicans are rushing health care destruction through the Senate.

Washington Post National Reporters, Dave Weigsl, explains how Karen Handal won in Georgia. Why Republicans run national and tribal campaigns. Do Democrats need a national message? What’s a smart for Democrats to attack Trump. Stop pretending that moderate Republicans exist. Archie Parnell ran a strong race in South Carolina and Republicans run against Goldman Sachs? The Democrats have bad consultants and don’t get unity and why the mainstream media keeps giving Paul Ryan a pass.

On the Fun Half: Sam’s role in the Seth Rich scandal, Rick Perry talks amazing nonsense. Police Officer gets away with killing Philander Castile. Conservative resentment and voting. Senator Chris Murphy calls out Republican “moderates” for pretending to oppose how secretive the Senate health care bill is and your calls and IMs.

Cast: Sam Seder @samseder, Michael Brooks @_michaelbrooks, Matt Lech, @mattlech, Kelly Carey @kellycarey
