The 2020 campaign has begun

And already there are trends to be spotted:

Ed Rendell wants the Democrats’ new House majority to get things done in the next two years: Don’t just investigate, legislate! Dream on, Ed — virtue signaling is the most important thing for the Left now. It affords the opportunity to say things that will sound good to their fellow Leftists without having to find out whether the things they say will actually work. By the time the presidential nominating process for 2020 is underway, the federal government may look even more Republican than it did last weekend.

Me, I’m looking forward to twenty-four months of blessed gridlock.

    Part of the problem, of course, is that for Republicans, the habit of saying things that sound good to each other without having to find out whether they’d actually work, is how we got Speaker Pelosi the first time, then Trump, and now (probably) Speaker Pelosi again.

    Which is part of the way the government will look more Republican…
