Seth Moulton is stuck on stupid. He keeps doubling down on his quest to oust Pelosi as everyone else coalesces around her.

Seth Moulton is a tragic character, if there was an Edith Wharton for this second Gilded Age. He’s the last Sensible, Moderate New England Republican — a breed for which the region, not to mention the country, has no more use. Smart (Haavahd), feisty (honorable service in the Marine Corps), of impeccable English-colonial/lace-curtain Irish ancestry, from a corner of our commonwealth where being a White Dude is still a political necessity… his only problem is that he was born some fifty years too late.

Seth Moulton intends to be President, and not in the distant future, either. He’s got the disadvantage of coming up in a state that has famously underperformed in the presidential sweeps since 1963, and the further handicap of being enrolled as a Democrat (because here in the Bay State we only elect Repubs to the mostly-ceremonial office of governor). His impetuousness and pugnacity have been previously rewarded, so apparently he presumed the Blue Wave could also be turned in his favor…

Then came the Unfortunate Comparison…
Moulton's account of Thatcher's defeat is an historical fabrication. Thatcher did not lose on the floor of Parliament, she lost in her party conference. Pelosi will win an overwhelming majority in her party caucus. https://t.co/2AOX2F98DG
