Another way to put this, of course, is that if Democrats gave up trying to represent politically disfavored groups, they might be able to win over political favored groups whose votes count more. This response, in other words, is little more than a taunt.

@jbouie Dems have to have a ~9 point margin to even have hope of winning the majority under Wisconsin’s 2011 map.

@jbouie I guess we could do the LBJ switcheroo, but that’s tough to pull off.

@jbouie Does representation of politically disfavored groups necessitate abandonment of rural areas?

@jbouie It’s also a tacit admission that then speaker of such a rejoinder doesn’t actually care about democracy. What they want is a tyranny of the majority.

@jbouie This is some serious subtweeting of Matthew Yglesias. I won't snitch tag him though. I recently learned from the young kids that is a Twitter faux pas.

@jbouie I've never seen this put this way, and it's really clarifying and thought-provoking.
