Brianna Wu may be doing something actually clever
« on: January 22, 2017, 05:38:16 AM »
She's apparently decided to run for Congress!

(Yes, yes, ignore the ficiton backed into each of the (few and short) paragraphs.  Nobody sane is going to be paying her any attention at this stage.)

The clever part is this:  Where other than a legislature can you fail at everything in every possible way and still be lauded as a hero?

This assumes she even gets elected, and Congress remains GOP dominated. :shrug:

She lives in Massachusetts, so she'll win if she gets nominated as a Democrat.  They'd elect a dead rat if it was running as a Democrat.

The way things are currently going in the Democratic party, however, it seems unlikely they're going to pose a credible threat to the Republican majority in only two years.  First, they have to realize they've alienated their own base.
