I think it's likely that the Repuds are stuck with Donnie

His base is still going to be there and Faux, OAN, and NEWSMAX will still be denying his crimes and minimizing the consequences. And it galls me to say this, but they DO vote. They’ll either renominate Trump or some wanna-be because I doubt enough Repud senators—even the guys who are retiring or are safe until 2026–won’t have the stones to vote to impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanors, thus moving him off the 2024 Republican primary contest.

Been in their situation. No empathy for the Trumpies

I not only mourned Hillary’s loss, but the beginning of the end of the American Experiment and the shattering of my misconceptions I’d had about the good judgement and common decency that I’d thought remained among the American electorate.

The belief that our country was indeed a City on the Hill
was not confined to clueless right-wingers. I, too, believed that America was the best hope of the world and it broke my heart to see the lights fade to dark as the electoral votes were tallied in the aftermath of the 2016 elections.

I’m still angry at Trump supporters and I’m particularly angry at the fools who continue to believe his regime horse (excrement) despite half a decade’s worth of evidence to the contrary. I have little pity for them: they had the tools for wising up and refused to use them.

I doubt that these people will ever wise up. Een so, I dearly hope this is a better country than what they and their idol sought to bequeath to us.

Perhaps it's because of my privileged position,

I didn’t think that January 2020 was all that bad. Things didn’t take a sharp right term into the excrement until February. Maybe things in 2021 will begin to get better around mid-year.

After swallowing Trump's camels for 4 years, the

Right’s propaganda organs and the lazy, credulous reporters and editors of the lame-stream corporate news media are going to find some Biden gnats to choke on.

“Liberal media,” my @$$!

How cute! The little mousies are finally finding their courage

Isn’t that sweet? The breathless widdle stenographer-cheerleaders who call themselves reporters and the eunuchs and cowards who call themselves editors and producers have finally screwed up their nerve and decided to put down their whiffle-balls and actually ask a few probing questions about Donald Trump and the way he behaved on the campaign trail and in office the last four years.

And of course, some of the gutless wonders are quaking in their shoes and risk breaking potty-training by worrying that they might be “too tough” on Donald and his passle of thieves, liars, and crooks.

We won’t forget the corruption, cruelty, and non-stop lying of the Trump administration. Nor will we forget the epic cowardice of those individuals who dare call themselves journalists. The latter have failed their duty to the US and their citizenry.

The MAGA Magoos are in denial about the COVID virus' contagion

(Sorry, I don’t use the term MAGAt). The Corona virus has no politics and doesn’t care what QAnon says or if Donnie is still in the White House.

I fear that some people are going to learn hard lessons the same way their lateral ancestors learned about Yellow Fever, Cholera, and Smallpox. Unfortunately they can spread it to the rest of us.

And their ailing friends and loved ones can say: “Oh, Magoo! You’ve done it again!“

Some people vote for the guy they think is the most popular

It’s a habit that all too many people form in primary school: they’ll vote for the guy they think is the most popular because he’s popular and they think it will make them popular too, whether or not Mr. Popularity will be good to them or not. I’m afraid that it’s a trait all too deeply ingrained into our primate psychology, and that too many people resort to the idea first rather than doing a little cogitation before they vote.

When a man shows you who he really is, believe him

This life lesson remains true even if right-wingers don’t like Maya Angelou.

One of the things I'm looking forward to discovering after this election is just how "fired up"

the Republican voters were in Texas this year. Were they all really ready to come out and strike a blow against us Devil-horned and cloven-hoofed “Libruls” or did they decide that they wouldn’t have to work that hard this go-round?

I think it’s likely that the long-foreseen but never actualized Blue Wave may finally have happened, but we won’t know until the Lone Star State’s votes are counted.

I voted yesterday. A lot of people in line.

Early voting had started Tuesday morning here in Travis County, Texas and I decided to risk it on Wednesday. Voter turnout was high enough in my part of Austin that I had to wait about an hour or so before I could cast my ballot. Most of my wait was outdoors, often under shade trees and the breeze reducing the chances for catching the bug. I only spent the last 7 to 20 minutes indoors and I was masked up and gloved.

I haven’t checked figures for today’s turnout, but if this trend continues, I believe that Texas branch of Club Pachyderm may have The rudest surprise they’ve had in years.

That couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch.
