What do you think of the headline as a key 2020 slogan? I heard it from John Lewis tonight, among others. It’s flexible — in addition to the obvious connotation, we’re not going back to the days when 20 million fewer were uninsured, we’re not going back to the days when women could be sexually harassed with impunity, etc. It works well as a crowd chant, and it encapsulates the fundamental sense of Democrats as the progressive party.
On another topic, compare and contrast the tone, tenor and content of the Post (top) and Times (bottom) headlines and summary paragraphs. One of these papers understands the moment we’re in, what’s at stake, that the GOP should be ashamed, and part of journalism’s job is to keep score. The other is acting like business as usual. Fuck your “bitter partisan brawl”, as if all that anyone cared about today was party affiliation.
