David Waldman lifts us over the Wednesday hump, and tries not to drop us on the way to the weekend:
It’s a bad week for armed security guards, but mostly due to their armed nature rather than their job title. A guy pleaded guilty to over 50 charges of false “swatting” calls to police after he got someone killed. Your Alexa listens as you do, well... everything.
As the last embers of overheated midterm voting machines cool, the election, and Blue Wave continue, but still enough time has passed to give Greg Dworkin a chance to really dig into the data. As Democrats win, they get to define the center. As Republicans lose, they start to chew on each other, noticing that speck in an other’s eye, ignoring the log in theirs, etc. Funny how that goes. Maybe, eventually, they will discover the real culprit. Maybe not.
Joan McCarter is ready to rumble! There is plenty of exciting fight action lined up in Congress in the next months, but the first fight, Ocasio-Cortez vs. Pelosi, was more of win-win battle, which some do contest, but that is a lot more than the next challenger will be able to claim. Trust David and Joan to get our priorities straight.
