Quick satisfaction or disciplined messaging?
The Democrats know their best chance to beat Trump in 2020 is a steady mix of healthcare anxiety and taking advantage of the economy if it softens. And yet, there on the rocks sits a mermaid with a pilsner-blonde comb-forward singing a siren song.
"Something racist!" the merfolk bellows, voice soft yet powerful.
"The mermaid said something racist! We must make it pay!" bellows first mate Ocasio-Cortez to grizzled Captain Pelosi.
What will she do? She knows diverting from the path will almost certainly be to the mermaids advantage. And yet, the mermaid soon has a gaggle of seagulls barking the same objectionable phrase right back to her. Captain Pelosi knows for sure she'll be dragged on Twitter the longer she stays silent.
The #THREADS will see her hung as her silence becomes ever more deafening.
What will she do?
What. Will. She. Do?
