One of the weirdest ideas in American politics is that people would like a candidate *more* if some total strangers working on his behalf called you up or knocked on your door at random times to interrupt your day. — PolitiTweet.org

@DouthatNYT Right now we have a historically unusual situation in which the senate skews right, and the electoral college skews right, and house gerrymanders skew right, and state legislature gerrymanders skew right, and the courts skew right. Progressives say that's bad. Conservatives say? — PolitiTweet.org

Maybe if Dems reverted to their 2008 issue positions they could win elections by such overwhelming majorities that they'd reliably control the senate and the state legislatures in WI & MI. But Dems are asking, why shouldn't "winning more votes than the other guy" be enough? — PolitiTweet.org

In some cities, houses filter down (i.e., get cheaper as they age) while in others they “filter up” (i.e., gentrification and displacement). Correlations with supply elasticity and Wharton index of land use regulation. https://t.co/Mjcjl3NpGe https://t.co/OGsP6zqrOa — PolitiTweet.org

@lymanstoneky I think you should distinguish between bomb-throwing-ness and policy moderation. Trump on most topics I would say is less extreme than Romney, even though Romney is a much more congenial person qua person. — PolitiTweet.org

And what’s fascinating is that *Romney himself* has really stood out from the pack and not seen it that way. He has all kinds of ideas I think are wrong or bad but also this week upheld the notion that right & wrong exist and the rule of law matters. Good for him! — PolitiTweet.org

Again, not to deny that there is anti-Bernie sentiment (Hillary keeps reminding us how she feels) but the plain reading of events is that it is just not deeply felt enough to overcome modestly difficult coordination problems and ego issues. — PolitiTweet.org

Here in a non-joking way: A good way for "Democratic elites" to stop Bernie would have been for Obama & Hillary to endorse Joe Biden and for donors to have given Joe Biden tons of money. The fact that those things aren't happening shows anti-Bernie zeal is in fact limited. — PolitiTweet.org
