But first, here’s how dumb I am.

The first time I heard the 90-second climax of Leader Jeffries’ speech — posted yesterday and here, set to music — I didn’t realize it was alphabetical.

A to Z.

How he managed to come up with an X knocks me out.

Xennials?  I had to Google it.

And while we’re doing music, here’s Adam Overett having a little fun at incoming Congressman George Santos’ expense.

It’s telling that the first action the Republican House took was not to expel this blatant, breathtaking fraud but, rather, to protect the uber-wealthy and large corporations from enforcement of the tax laws.


First he helped incite an attempted coup . . . (when you storm the Capitol in order to overturn the results of a free and fair election, isn’t that an attempted coup?) . . . and now he’s helped incite an insurrection in Brazil.

Why isn’t this guy in jail?

(Oh: that’s right.  Trump pardoned him.)

The fight for democracy is far from over.

On one side, you’ve got Trump – Bannon – BolsonaroPutinKimCPACOrbanCarlsonThe Proud BoysDuterteXi – and, among others, every Republican in Congress who voted not to certify Biden’s election.  Which was most of them.

On the other side, you’ve got Volodymyr Zelensky, Alexei Navalny, Liz Cheney, former Vice President Dick Cheney, these folks, almost every judge Trump appointed, the Wall Street Journal, and every Democrat — and virtually every independent — in America.


Ricki H: “Given the breaking news about classified documents found in the office he used from 2017 to 2020, should we support Cory Booker for President?”

→ Cory is great, but this appears to be night-and-day different from Mar-a-Lago.  It was Biden’s people who alerted the Archives to what they’d found and returned them the next day, not the other way around, with the Archives and FBI repeatedly requesting documents that Trump lied about not having and then refused to return.

(Plus: we don’t even know yet how highly classified — if highly classified at all — any of the Biden documents were.)

Beware false equivalence.
