if we pretend to be republicans hard enough, republican-leaning voters will vote for us instead of the real thing and also the liberals will vote for our fake republican candidates (and if not we can just blame them for losing).

this is called "strategy"

I'm pretty certain that Goodwin tweet is sarcastic, you can follow his profile to his site where he's made comics attacking TPP (and Free Trade in general) from the left/labor perspective.

The dumbest part about that is you can usually still search the car in that instance even if it is decriminalized.

There's a link in that thread to an examination of Kennedy's record on cannabis. He appears to be a thoroughgoing hardliner.

"Dems Pick Anti-Marijuana Kennedy For Trump State Of The Union Response" | Marijuana Moment

Quote
Some observers see the young Kennedy, 37, as a rising political star. But he is starkly out of step with his party -- and a majority of U.S. voters -- on a key issue now emerging at the forefront of mainstream American politics: Marijuana.

In 2015, Kennedy was one of just ten House Democrats to vote against a measure to protect medical cannabis patients and providers who are following state laws from being prosecuted by the federal government. He was one of just 24 Democrats to vote the same day against a broader measure blocking the Justice Department from interfering with all state marijuana laws, including those allowing recreational use.

[. . .]

Going further than just refusing to block federal anti-marijuana enforcement in legal states, Kennedy voted three times against amendments to increase military veterans' access to medical cannabis -- just one of five Democrats to oppose the measure in 2016. Fifty-seven Republicans voted for it that year.

Kennedy even opposed a very limited proposal to protect children who use non-psychoactive cannabidiol extracts to treat severe seizure disorders from being targeted by the DEA. That amendment was supported by 118 Republicans.

While some Democrats, such as Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon, were quick to denounce Haspel, others were not. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., instead issued praise of the woman who oversaw Bush-era torture programs.

"We've had a long personal talk," Feinstein said on Tuesday of the interrogation program, according to CNN. "I have spent some time with her. We have had dinner together. We have talked. Everything I know is that she has been a good deputy director of the CIA."

Or maybe she did the prayer wrong. Magic is tricky stuff.

Third Way makes an opening bid in the 2020 'ideas primary

Third Way fears that Democrats will try to counter the spread of "nativist, nationalist and nostalgic populism" on the right with a warmed-over version of left-wing populism.

You mean like the left-wing populism that got FDR elected 3 or 4 times and pretty much cemented a Democratic stranglehold on the House of Representatives for about 4 decades?

Yeah, that'd be horrible.
