    This is going to take forever if 5 states are objected. 
    Two hours to debate each one.  Christ
    do they debate them all separately? i thought they took all objections and debated them as a whole. 
    Yea each state.  So we are looking at ten hours of debate.  Awesome.

    i was just about to say this. i don't feel sorry for anyone who makes nearly 200 grand a year to do basically nothing who actually has to work for a day or two.

    I'd argue it's been the Republicans' logical evolution in their approach to basically everything over the last ~50 years..
    I should have said 40... many point to Reagan as being the turning point. 

    I'm no political expert, feel free to correct. 
    I've always saw the 94 congress as the turning point. 

    Nixon, southern strategy. tge turning began there. Newt shut the door on governance and it became exclusively about powrt and upward wealth distribution
    The southern strategy was to convert the solid south to the GOP.  Using race as a wedge wasn't new.  Nor was the South voting as a block.  In 94, the politics of personal destruction and eliminating compromise took root. I blame Newt and Rush.

    without it, does newt eventually get sent to congress? as I said, the turn BEGAN there. Newt shut the door.
    Yeah maybe as a democrat.

    What's up with AZ?
    They have an objection to the certification of electors by a rep and a senator so they are required to recess and discuss before returning. All show.
    Ah, thanks.

    And the senator isn't even from fucking Arizona (Cruz).

    is it automatic he becomes majority leader though? i googled it yesterday and when it happened in 2001 the two parties came to a "power sharing agreement". or is harris also a tie breaker vote in the election of the senate leader?

    But Mitch also has to be elected as minority leader.  There's no guarantee he keeps his post.  

    This is such a big deal for Biden's cabinet, judges, committee investigations, etc.  Even if Democrats defect on hard left policies, having the chairs is huge.

    I don't know.  I don't pretend to know his popularity.  Honestly, probably not.  I don't know that anyone is in a position to take him down.  The young senators don't have the following and the next in commands (Grassley, Imhoff, etc.) I don't see as likely to make a move.  He likely stays as minority leader.  One can't really blame him for losing the majority.  It was all Trump and his bomb throwing allies.

    Georgia has set the standard here.  Turnout and caring.

    People cannot be complacent for 2022 or 2024.... and shouldn't be complacent for 2021 or 2023 either.  You know damn well that the Trump cult and the Proud Boyz arent going to be complacent.  The minute we fall asleep again, we will fall back into the Trump abyss.  It needs to be vanquished forever, and frankly, the Republican Party needs to be minimized to West Virginia and Wyoming... that is unless they actually create a platform and live by some sort of decency.
    I'm curious about what tRump's next move will be after he's out of office.  The GOP is going to have a big decision to make.  If he tries to stretch this shit out like he's going to run again in 2024 the party will continue on a downward spiral.  And they know that.

    I'm guessing they will kick him to the curb pretty quickly.
    They are in a tough spot.  

    I truly think they believe they will be able to keep tiptoeing around him and Paul Ryan or Cruz will be able to get the nomination in 2024 and things will return to 'normal'.
    The problem is, trump and his family very much want 2024 and congressional seats.  if anyone says anything critical, trump will have his masses primary them and install some sort of Qanon idiot.  When the primary starts, the likes of Ryan or Cruz will be a bug on the windshield.  
    They cant just wait this out expecting it to fade.  I really think they need a large-scale movement to reject trump which will likely uproot our national political system (which actually would be a good thing).  
    Trump is not going anywhere in the Republican Party. He will have a significant influence over their elections.

    It's on the Dem Party to realize this and stick their thumbs in every wound they can.

    I don't expect the Dem Party to go crazy left, but getting through a better healthcare plan and a better approach to the pandemic makes me fucking giddy on their own. Send green-based jobs to the Rust Belt en masse. Things like this should be able to happen.
    The only way to squash the Covidiot from future influences  is to impeach him tomorrow..
