The White House Press Secretary, when she had time on her hands, used to beat me regularly at Words With Friends.

The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin has found something else — possibly more important — that she’s good at: Responding To GOP Lies.

If you didn’t have time to watch the White Christian Nationalist clip  Thursday, I offer it again.  It strikes me as really important.

That said, I want to stress: I love white people!

Most of my best friends are white!

Including many who are straight and go to, or whose ancestors regularly went to, church.

Being pro-women and pro-equality and pro-equal opportunity — and anti-defamation — are entirely compatible, it seems to me, with having numerous heroes who are straight white patriotic Christian men.

Barack Obama and Martin Luther King, Jr. are heroes of mine, but so are George Washington (who invented the peaceful transfer of power), Ben Franklin (who invented so much else) — Jefferson!  Hamilton!  Adams!  Edison! the Wright Brothers!  Lincoln!  Roosevelt!  Eisenhower! — up to and including Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Joe Biden and Liz Cheney.

You may not agree they’re all heroes, but surely you’ll agree they’re all white men.  Except for Cheney of course, but how can anyone make a list of heroes today without her?

Anyway, watch.

Millions of fundamentally good people have been misled into an unAmerican way of thinking.

We so need to win 101 days from now — and we can.

To wit:

Path To A Democratic Victory

The DC chattering class convinced themselves a remarkably long time ago that the Democrats were doomed, doomed, doomed in the 2022 elections. The pundits happily ignore any actual facts contradicting this narrative in their rush to judgment.

In this memo, we intend to offer a contradictory view, supported by real data. . . .

Have you joined your local chapter of the League of Women Voters?  Joined Field Team 6? Joined Vote Forward? Done all you can to fund the organizing effort that is our best chance of saving democracy and moving the nation forward?

Have a great weekend.
