We’re gonna need a bigger popcorn machine: The House Democratic Caucus's post-election conference call leaked and it was everything you could imagine.
· Nov 6, 2020 · NottheBee.com

Democrats had anticipated gaining between 5 and 15 seats in the election just passed.

They lost at least 6.

Were there recriminations? Why, yes, yes there were.

How about scapegoating? As a matter of fact, there was that, too.

Crying? Of course.

Was it leaking like a sieve? No. It was leaking like someone took away the sieve so the information could flow more freely.

Were there more recriminations? You bet.

How about some audio of Representative Abigail Spanberger, a moderate in Virginia who nearly lost her reelection bid say that the election on the congressional level "was a failure" for House Democrats? Glad you asked! It's right here.

Did Nancy Pelosi say something totally unhinged from reality? If by that you mean, claim she had a "mandate" after the Democrats lost seats in the house, failed to take control of the Senate, and have at best, a razor-thin margin at the presidential level? Of course she did.

You know what really says, "mandate?" When you get a headline like this after your post-election victory call.

Don't forget to get extra butter and salt, too.
