So look, it's fine, IMO, if you enjoyed the Lincoln Project's ads.

But FOR FUCK'S SAKE PEOPLE do not send them money. You shouldn't have sent them money before, DEFINITELY do not send them money now.
There are MANY worthwhile places to donate.

First off, Fair Fight Action, Stacey Abrams' group. Follow them at @fairfightaction, donate here:…
You can also sign up to volunteer for Fair Fight Action here:…
The Movement Voter Project has a curated list of small grassroots organizations doing ORGANIZING all over the country, not just in Georgia. Follow them at @MovementVote. Their main website is here:
They've also got a Georgia-specific list here! Donate to fund small organizing groups around Georgia that will be working to find unregistered voters, get them registered, and turn them out.
You can read more about Movement Voter PAC's Georgia groups here, with links to all their websites, and I bet some of them ALSO have ways to volunteer.…
You can also check out the Georgia Democratic Party, here: They have volunteering opportunities for people out-of-state (and donation opportunities as well, obviously!)
And hopefully you're already following @staceyabrams to find out what she thinks she needs to win these two runoffs!

A thread for me to show off my stress-crafting. I've been doing embroidery, mostly fairly small embroidery pieces. These are all freehand, I'm not using patterns. Inspired by some photos I've seen online of landscape embroidery that are really WAY more impressive, tbh.
The first piece I did, in September. Looking at this now, the thing I'm probably happiest with is the texture of the French knots for the "vague suggestion of flowers" near the bottom. Embroidery piece: sky, hill...
My next piece: Mount Fuji.

I was much happier with this one. Embroidery: Mount Fuji with...

I've said for years that as far as I was concerned, Collin Peterson could keep his seat forever, and if anyone wanted an illustration of why it matters whether an extremely red district has a conservative Dem or a Republican as Rep, Fishbach's got you:
(This loss was entirely inevitable, that district went OVERWHELMINGLY for Trump four years ago and eventually Peterson was going to retire or die and at that point it was going red and probably never coming back.)
I say "probably" because, well, look at Georgia, for one thing. But also, Amy Klobuchar's popularity extends well outside the metro. Minnesota is kind of a weird state and I don't pretend to be an expert on anything outside the cities themselves.

I want to talk about that bullshit "Bob and Sally" cartoon because I also have thoughts about staying friends with people while disagreeing with them politically.
I have MANY friends with whom I disagree about one or more of the following:

* municipal trash pickup
* parking minimums
* appropriate housing density
* snow plowing schedules
* school funding models
* speed limits
* bike lane design
* funding for public art
* park priorities
There are A LOT of questions in politics where reasonable people can disagree:

* How do we balance all the competing needs for money, from inspections to permits to filling potholes?

* In what ratio should we tax income, property, purchases? When do we raise $ with fees?

I forgot to add a description to the gif. It's a guy skateboarding up to a barrier, trying to jump over it to land on the skateboard again, and fucking it up.
Oh man I really should have searched for "Wile E Coyote" when I was trying to find an appropriate gif.

And here is the thread that was her LRT:

One of the weird frustrations of Twitter is what a radically different experience it becomes as your follower count rises.

I am literally begging everyone in Minnesota to flip their ballot over and vote for Paul Thissen. Michelle MacDonald is a far-right Bible-prop-using drunk-driving frivolous-lawsuit-filing disaster of a candidate.
Her past shenanigans involve a non-profit that spent years mostly appearing to exist as a PR wing for a woman who kidnapped and hid her children as part of a child custody dispute while pretending they were missing.
Here's what I wrote about her in 2014, when she got banned from the Republican Booth at the State Fair:…
