David Waldman and Greg Dworkin deliver the good news — Joe Biden really is here, the former guy isn’t, and COVID hasn’t canceled the brackets.

Is the worst over for the COVID-19 pandemic? Most Americans believe it is. Experts urge caution with 15 states increasing their cases by 10 to 25 percent. It has been a little while since some Americans really listened to experts, however. Sometimes it is because actual experts aren’t correct, or certain fully 100 percent of the time. Sometimes, some people are just boneheads. With Donald out, the reigning bonehead is Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, who incubates vicious new COVID variants for export. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is on track to perhaps start exporting vaccines, as we will soon have more shots than people (Although that doesn’t count the non-people also in line.).

President Biden is making government great again. Joe Biden’s approval on pandemic handling is about the reverse of Donald Trump’s approval as president. If Trumpers don't want stimmies, and not a single one of their representatives voted for them, how about we keep them and split’em up with each other? In exchange, they keep Pepe Le Pew (and we keep Cardi B).

Even evangelicals are losing their faith in white superiority/victimhood. They’re sticking with misogyny for the time being. Beth Moore was a hit with evangelical women until she started finding fault with evangelical men, and now she’s cancelled.

The Biden administration intends to keep building back better, by relieving child poverty, not building border walls. This makes our friends across the aisle irate, and uncooperative... they say. Rich, aka Liberal Thinking, suggests Republicans put up or shut up in his latest audio correspondence. Joe Biden would probably concur

Republicans might not have the filibuster forever, but they’ll always have racism. Bob Menendez might be no angel, but he can still call out Ron Johnson. Democrats are seeing and standing with Asian Americans today, but as Asian Americans will tell you, this all didn’t start yesterday.
