As we mentioned earlier, this weekend is the Netroots Nation gathering in New Orleans, and Sen. Kamala Harris was there, almost certainly laying the groundwork for a 2020 run.

Politico noted that Harris took offense at the use of the term “identity politics,” saying that “its purpose is to minimize and marginalize issues that impact all of us. It is used to try and shut us up.”

The last thing we want is for Harris to shut up, and we hope she takes away from Netroots the idea that she needs to move even further left if she wants a chance to climb the ladder from senator to president. That said, we’ll keep using the term, OK?

Harris even tweeted a follow up to the Politico story:

Trust us, we believe you. Just keep on doing what you’re doing.

Go Kamala go! You know you want to.

SLAY QUEEN!!!
