It’s the historic last day of the 115th Congress. Plus, there’s also something else going on, and Nancy Pelosi is a part of it. Oh, and also, she’ll be Speaker of the House again.

Other first day stuff is happening, too. Jerry Nadler expects to introduce a Mueller protection bill. Republicans are starting to retire. Or just not show up. And they’re starting to hire lawyers, too.

Rules are changing, and although they didn’t run the table, progressives made… well, progress. And that makes a lasting difference.

Meanwhile, the shutdown continues, with less prospect for Trump’s wall every day, not to mention his ridiculous promise that Mexico would pay. And we’re in no position to be wasting money on this, either. Trump, surrounded by his cabinet of idiots, flounders again. And Americans are sick and tired of it already.

Not all the change is in DC, either. BiPM Maine says Maine’s new governor is just swell.
