Baratunde Thurston is an amazing wordsmith.

Watching him tonite on Brian Williams both scares and inspires me. He is able to say with such eloquence what I feel. But I worry about where he thinks we may end up. I love to hear him speak.

Not really a happy day, 100 down since 1/6 After watching Ali fill in for Rachel on MSNBC

Seeing some of the interviews of the Speaker, Members like Mr Crow and the police Lt who was in assaulted in the battle, listened to the Congressman Kildee interview, I realized how truly fucked the staff on the Hill is. They really are second class citizens.

The House and Senate Leaders had protective teams covering them, the Rank and File Members of Congress had the Capitol Police lead them to safety at an undisclosed location, the staff on the other hand was Fucked. Left behind with no clue of how to get to safety. Watching the older African American Cafeteria worker talking about how he was told people were in the building was troubling. Hiding under tables, behind closed doors hoping for the best, but that is all they could do, hope.

The AOC crew had the joy of cleaning up chemicals, urine, shit, trash, broken parts of history, flags, fire extinguishers, water bottles, clubs, bars.... who knows what. They worked all night trying to clean and repair the building so that the Electoral Votes could be counted.

Then they have to go back to a building where a large minority of people who worked there support those who attacked the building and its employees, they return to a building where a large minority of people do not care for their safety, they return to work fearing it could occur again, or something similar could happen again.

The Capitol was always a difficult place to work but after seeing clips of the crowd screaming for the “blood of the scum that work in there” “Kill them all” “kill the suits” and Fox News, the Former President and their ilk gaslighting, the Insurrectionists walking away from the Capitol, judges letting these armed attackers out to await trial, I don’t know how anyone can go back to work, yet they do. The staff takes a lot of shit, but they are incredibly dedicated, and soldier on.

Love Brian Williams

We paid extra to have that translated from the original Russian. ...

the translation snark refers to the comments of that gigantic asshole Senator Ron Johnson that he read into the record at today’s hearing.

Hell yes.

Ari Melber, enough whining about the witnesses, and enough of the rap crap.

Bringing in Senator Blumenthal, possibly the whitest guy in the Senate aside from Mitt Romney on to JayZ lyrics is BS. Enough of the cool kid in the room crap. You are a lawyer and a bright Legal mind, cut the shit and show your real strengths.

Bullshit Bravado

Tom Cotton sent for his gun, I cry bullshit. Even worse if he did actually do it. Just what we need, an untrained asshole with no knowledge of the rules of engagement. Thank god he did not kill anyone or get anyone else killed.

To protect the Members in the lobby, he discharged his weapon

What a horrible decision to have to make. The President did this.

Brian Williams is getting snarkier by the day

Senators are probably googling conscience to see what that means....funny
