Do you think we can win the division?
Do you think that we can make a push at a wild card?
If the answer to either of those is no, then you cut KK and Paradis and eat the dead cap this season so we have more for next season, and 2022.
I'm okay with there being conservative politicians. I understand the reality that half the country is conservative and that's fine. Healthy even, because the country thrives on balance and compromise. I'm not so foolish to think that a Republican is just going to magically be pro-choice and Medicare for All. But Steve King isn't a conservative; he's a member of the Fox/Trump party. And I'm glad to see him ousted.
We as Americans can demand more of our politicians on both sides. And I think it's great that Iowans are demanding more of the Republican candidates, and we're seeing an actual conservative get the nomination, and not a Trumpist. If Dems don't flip the seat, we can take a measure of solace that at least the politician who represents the state isn't a white supremacist.
