    Forget all the politics for a moment and enjoy Friday, December 20, as the best day of the year.

    What is on Michael Bennet's Christmas wish list?

    the answer is in a Denver Post article.

    Michael Bennet won’t be anywhere near Thursday night’s Democratic debate stage in Los Angeles, but this week he renewed his determination to stay in the presidential race at least until the New Hampshire primary.

    The U.S. senator from Colorado hit up his donor base to help him do that, asking for $700,000 more.

    At least he's not your state legislator…

    Well, OK, let's be honest.  We probably have a dozen or so of these.

    Republican Matt Shea 'participated in act of domestic terrorism', says report

    The Republican Washington state representative Matthew Shea “participated in an act of domestic terrorism against the United States” and represents a threat of political violence, according to a report produced for the Washington state legislature.

    Shea is a far-right figure who holds extremist Christian, nationalist and Islamophobic beliefs. The report said it had made the judgment over terrorism by his actions before and during an armed takeover and standoff at the Malheur national wildlife refuge in 2016 in Oregon.

    The report further contends that in a document entitled the Biblical Basis for War, Shea “advocated the replacement of US democracy with a theocracy and the killing of all males who do not agree”.

    In its conclusion, while commenting that Shea is not an “imminent direct threat … it is more probable than not that Representative Shea is likely to plan, direct and engage in additional future conflicts that could carry with them significant risk of bloodshed and loss of life”.

    It was nice to see Sarah Sanders attempt to pull a Trump-I'm-an-asshole-too moment today, then walk it back instead of doubling down. Way to show your ugly side and lose at the same time. Failure on all levels.

    Trump Adviser Caught On Tape: Voter Suppression Key To GOP Battleground Efforts

    “Traditionally it’s always been Republicans suppressing votes in places,” Justin Clark, a senior political adviser and senior counsel to Trump’s re-election campaign, said at the event. “Let’s start protecting our voters. We know where they are. … Let’s start playing offense a little bit. That’s what you’re going to see in 2020. It’s going to be a much bigger program, a much more aggressive program, a much better-funded program.”
