David Waldman delivers a most festive KITM today, full of Cha Nookah cheer:

Well, it’s official. Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential victory glide hit a little turbulence yesterday. It seems that Tinkerbell is running out of true believers.

Donald still has his share of fake believers. Steve Bannon says inauguration is just your constitutional opinion, man.  Stephen Miller called for alternate electors to bring some alternate facts to the ground, and across the nation faithful fraudsters sporting Groucho glasses and forged certification “beat electors to the game”, thereby winning by default, of course… until the real electors showed up and ruined everything.

Even some Democrats need to be reminded that believing something should happen doesn’t necessarily make it happen. Jimmy Dore, best known for hosting The Jimmy Dore Show, and being an jerk/idiot, wants what he wants now, confusing having demands with having power. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks two steps ahead and walks into fewer walls.

Can Kamala Harris violate norms and precedents and take power over the Senate from Mitch McConnell? How much of McConnell’s power is derived from people believing he has that power?

More vaccines are coming — too late for some, sadly, too late for too many. Distribution delays could keep vaccines from many more. Move Biden and Harris to the front of the line.
