Same, same. But since it seems like lots o’ GOPers are blaming Trump for both the GA losses and what’s happening in DC today, all this (I hope) will serve as an unmistakable Come to Jesus moment for Republicans.

Amidst all the ruckus, the news from Georgia comes as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines.

It is amazing to me that, given what is happening in Washington right now, flipping Georgia just last night already feels like old news. This is an unsustainable pace of change, of events.

May I suggest that we send Pope Frank a petition to canonize Stacy Abrams. January 5 will henceforth be Saint Stacy’s Day.

They already think that walk with Jesus, we just need them to wake the fuck up to reality and the here and now.

I’m sorry it had to be announced during this time of carnage in the Capitol. GOOD JOB JON! Now on to identifying, arresting and jailing these insurrectionists in DC and hold every single cravenly cowardly congresscritter accountable who incited, provoked and egged them on.

Damnit, can we please not have “Gift” used as a transitive verb here, especially when “Give” would be perfectly fine. It’s not as if Ossoff wrapped the senate up with a bow.

Literally, lobbyists will be lining up outside his office, he will get more junkets and “campaign contributions” than any other senator in memory.

I agree. And I also believe that Trump’s relevance as an adult (let alone “president”) has vanished as of today.

I say that even as I grieve over the abominations in his Name in Washington, DC.
