The Onion or Real news?
OK. It's the Onion, but you had to wonder for a second, didn't you?
Following the progressive challenger’s victory over 16-term incumbent Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi phoned Jamaal Bowman to scold him for winning his primary race, sources confirmed Wednesday. “I just wanted to call and personally reprimand you for your victory,” said Pelosi, extending her sincerest indignation to the former Bronx middle school educator, who is expected to easily win the general election in his heavily Democratic congressional district. “I understand there are some mail-in ballots that still need to be counted, but it appears you won big last night and energized a lot of first-time voters and young people we absolutely did not want voting in this primary. So allow me to extend my sincerest fuck-you for everything you’ve done. Obviously, we’re going to be working together soon, so I look forward to crushing you the first chance I get.” Pelosi added that when things became official in November, she would call again to express how frustrated she was to welcome Bowman to Congress.
Still thinking about the fact that top Democratic operatives thought exposing @JamaalBowmanNY's debt problems would be a smear that would deter voters. Tells you *a lot*.

I'm tickled by the idea of McConnell having to run against someone that will argue for popular social programs without shame.
You know, like socialized medicine.
