Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today! Oh wait, it’s not Groundhog Day anymore? Well, there’s still something to be said for reliability. David Waldman delivers exactly the KITM we expect, right when we need it:
Greg Dworkin is on, and he has some questions. What’s taking so long on the coronavirus relief package? What about the vote-a-rama, concurrent resolutions and the rest of the arcane-a-procedurama coming up? The Dems finally got the gavels they earned, but Republicans neither understand nor care about governing, so how will that affect things? Two-thirds of Americans are sidin’ with Biden on COVID relief, and the other third will wish they did.
Donald Trump misses his Diet Coke button, but he misses his Twitter button more. No one will miss Donald Trump. Republicans remain the party of Trump for the moment, but why stick with Donald, when Marjorie Taylor Green is so much Trumpier? Kevin McCarthy hopes to move Marge out of governing and into a more Twitter-centered position. 7,600 Utah Republicans have switched their party registrations to anything else.
The Capitol rioters weren’t your regular radicals, they were Trump schmucks, so if it wasn’t for their ubiquitous social media presence they might have been hard to track. Donald Trump’s impeachment defense is half-baked and idiotic, but you get what you pay for.
