1. Besides sending us Dems into a tizzy, the #AlabamaAbortionBill may do one thing almost for certain: Reelect @DougJones to the Senate. This time to a six-year term. IMO the Dems' only seat in 2020 danger Alabama bill is simply a PR stunt we can make backfire.
2. It's in @theDemocrats' best interest to let GOP electorate think Roberts Court will uphold the ban. It'll depress GOP turnout. I remain convinced Trump's impenetrable 37% is 25% pro-life Catholics who sell their souls to enable Trump's bigotry for pro-life cause. Trump needs
3. to continually energize that part of his base. Alabama leg and gov did their part and now the liberal media is doing the rest by amplifying it. Best to focus response.

Nothing in state legislatures or cable news folks can do will impact how #SCOTUS eventually rules.
4. It will happen in court, not on TV and not from public outrage. We need to have more faith in our courts. Let the lawyers continue the fight. We should resist the GOP offer to make 2020 just about abortion. That will energize Trump's base. We want to let them
5. believe they won. No need to vote this time. In the interim we can work to elect @TheDemocrats to obtain a Senate majority. The way to stop Roberts, if he wants to assault reproductive rights, is by appointing more justices. We need to make that possibility our goal.
6. The Democrats' presidential cattle-call steals all of our political oxygen. We need Senate candidates to begin building name recognition. If @maddow wants to protect women's rights she should spend air-time on Senate candidates seeking to take these @SenateGOP seats
7. not just on the 20 or so Democrat "also-rans" running for POTUS. Here are four GOP seats that we could pick up. With Jones holding that would give us a majority.
@SenatorCollins ME
@SenCoryGardner CO
@joniernst IA
8. @TheDemocrats should get somebody warming up in all these three GOP seats that are open due to GOP retirements.
@SenAlexander TN
@SenPatRoberts KS
@SenatorEnzi WY
9. These folks are in the danger zone and if we get going we can put these seats in play. But we need candidates and air-time to get their messages out.
@SenDavidPerdue GA
@SenDanSullivan AK
@SenThomTillis NC
@JohnCornyn TX
@SenateMajLdr KY
@LindseyGrahamSC SC

10. So if you're mad about the #AlabamaAbortionBan don't get mad,
get even. 😎 @maddow @MaddowBlog @Lawrence
