The Resistance's First 100 Days

by Charlotte Hays

Forget assessing President Trump's first 100 days in office.

How are things going for The Resistance after a hundred days of rage?

Well, not all that well according to a new poll that indicates that only 28 percent of the populace thinks that the Democrats are in touch with the public.

Sonny Bunch of the Free Beacon puts forward a five-point plan to make them more relatable.

It's hard to pick, but here are my two favorites:

National Ad Campaign Explaining Intersectionality

The real problem isn't that Democrats are out of touch with common folks; it's that common folks don't understand that the struggles of the out-of-work coal miner are intricately linked to the struggles of the bisexual transgendered pronounless twitter user who feels oppressed by the mainstream's refusal to admit that zir exists and that zir's problems are not trivialities. A nationwide ad campaign explaining the intricacies of intersectionality will bring Democrats one step closer to showing that progressives really do have the problems of you, the people, in their hearts.

Viral Vid: Tom Perez Doing George Carlin's Seven Words Bit

Tom Perez definitely understands the concerns of the common man, which is why he's been saying "shit" a lot recently. That's what real people say: "I know shit's bad right now, with all that starving bullshit," etc. It definitely doesn't sound pathetic or forced or, frankly, plain-old inappropriate. The real problem, imho, is that Perez isn't going far enough. People love cussin'! I bet a video of him doing George Carlin's "seven words you can't say on TV" bit would go viral in no time flat. Dems could even sub in some of their issues as the words—how hilarious would it be if Perez suggested you can't say "equality" on TV?! Incredibly hilarious.

Hilarious and sad. Because it's true.

Oddly enough, Bunch's facetious suggestions aren't all that far removed from what the Democrats are actually doing. Their actions do not seem calculated to attract more Americans in the middle of the country than they were in the 2016 campaign.
