    Whatshisname was right about the deadly pandemic hardly being mentioned after the election in spite of 4000+ deaths a day. And all it took was an armed insurrection.

    Just saw some film about the Fascist takeover of Italy in the early 1920's. The paramilitary Brown Shirts beat up the first voter out of the polls all over the country "because he didn't vote for Mussolini," regardless of who he voted for. Sort of set the tone for Election Day. We're lucky there are no Brown Shirts around here. 😁

    There has to be an over/under on the number dead from Trumpist violence nationwide through Inauguration Day. 😧 It's up to Republican leadership to prevent it.

    I'm with Pence for rejecting the 25th amendment to remove him. It's clearly intended for a disabled president, not one committing impeachable offenses. And impeachment is going to fail, although delaying the process 100 days while Congress tries to fix all the other bad stuff is a good idea. But when you consider intentions, I don't think the Founding Fathers intended that every mouth breather should have the right to an arsenal of war weapons in his garage. Ahh, maybe they did. 😮

    28th in defense. But the games are more interesting.

    Changing the system would require the entities with the power to voluntarily give it up. Good luck with that one. Impeachment is easy. Conviction would require getting 17 Republican senators to vote for it. An effort doomed to fail and also ruin the careers of every R senator who went along. Good luck with that one too.

    George Soros is a gazillionaire financial supporter of liberal causes. The Koch's are gazillionaire financial supporters of conservative causes. I don't have a problem with either, but it's hard to confuse them. I'm certain neither would have anything to do with a armed insurrection.

    Since I just saw host Lou Dobbs on Fox in a spitting rage at Senator Ben Sasse (R-KS) for his "disloyalty" to a guy who just initiated a coup attempt against his own government, I think the answer is that DJT is still welcome on that "news" outlet.

    Is anyone still pretending that the Republican administration about to leave power that increased the national debt by $6.7 Trillion was fiscally conservative? Unless that means tax cuts for the rich and austerity for everyone else.

    Worse thing I've heard today? Majority Whip Jim Clyburn's (D-SC) main office on the first floor of the Capitol with his name on the door where he sees the public went untouched, while his little hard-to-find, unmarked, working office on the third floor where all the work is done and the important papers are kept was ransacked. There had to be people embedded in the crowd directing this to happen. An inside job, A coup.

    What's the breakdown on seats that are up for re-election at that time?

    Sad that nowadays this is unexpected. Even Rome fell and we're the Rome of today. There were 53,000 more votes cast for Republican senatorial candidates than Democrats in the general election. Something turned that around and you're probably correct on the reason. Botching the COVID and acting like a damn fool too much will do it every time.

    All net from 29 feet to win it. Worth staying up for. Wendell still gets pushed around by larger centers. He did learn about the little things, like screening, maybe from RoLo and they don't show in the box score, but in many ways I'd rather see Gafford in there than Wendell missing shots from godknowswhere. All academic if you don't play either one at the end of games.
