    Same. Gonna hate myself in 5 hours, but it feels good to have this behind us and know Biden is confirmed.

    I think the last five years plus the fifteen year build-up to this proves that politics can never be boring again. Boring is what got us here. It is going to be a constant effort to remove the people in government who want to blow it up from the inside on top of fending off the people who want to blow it up from the outside.

    Politics can never again be that blasť thing that you think about every four years when it's time to vote for President. Every vote counts, and every race counts. Get involved. I told my wife this morning that I'm going to be calling and emailing my reps every day about issues that I feel they should care about more, and I hope that all of you - or at least most of you - can see why that's important and feel strongly enough to do the same. Or at least something similar, even if it's a form letter that someone else has already put together and you're just signing your name to it.

    This is important, more important than it's ever been. I'm not about to run for office - crowds of people? fuck right off - but I'm going to do the best I can to make sure I know what's going on locally and find a way to support it or fight it, whichever is appropriate.

    that poor dear, cancel culture claims another one.

    /s, bee-tee-dubs.

    edit: also, just because I found out about this, I think that getting "Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas" nominated might rank slightly above the election of that twit.

    The sad thing is that we were just starting to celebrate future Sen. Warnock (a black guy) and future Sen. Ossoff (a Jewish guy) and their win in the deep south, but it was all overshadowed by these traitorous fuckwits thinking it's "1776."

    It's like that Moonlight thing at the Oscars.

    yeah I was listening to someone talk about how "Pence looked like he was pissed off last night!" in the voting under the cover of darkness and I was like...what, did he furrow his brow a little bit more? Dude is a walking botox advertisement for invertebrates at this point

    I think he’s afraid that it will put his and all the other cabinet members’ lives in further danger, especially since the Trump cult will then expect Pence to pardon Trump and I don’t see Pence doing that; not after people DIED.

    Also, note that even if they DO invoke the 25th, Trump can simply submit his objection to it in writing and then he’s right back in office; then it has to go to Congress, and a majority of Congress has to decide. And McConnell has called a Senate recess until January 19th.

    Did you see those maniacs in the airport going after Lindsey Graham?

    Everyone is afraid of the Trump Q Cult right now; it’s uncontrolled and dangerous.

    KKKelly did do a nice concession to Warnock, so there’s that.

    This guy is impressive but it is Arkansas so who knows? I’d love to see Huckabee Sanders lose.

    My knee-jerk reaction is no way.
    But it would warm my cold, dead heart if he won.

    he's doing the Trump thing: superiorly-unqualified person who doesn't actually want the job. He's going to get it (because Idaho) and realize the same thing Trump did: government exists whether you want it to or not and is a very large beast. Maybe not as large in Idaho, but still.

    Illinois, people. I am never leaving.

    Note that abortion is also legal here per our state constitution, and will remain so even if some horrific thing happens like Roe being overturned.
