A million things to talk about today! A million things to talk about happening right now! All can pretty much be summed up as Donald J. Trump is a loser. A lose-lose, looooozy, lose, loser. Just how much of a loser is Donald Trump? David Waldman and Greg Dworkin have pondered that question for years, and yet have difficulty reaching a conclusion, as Donald Trump keeps losing, and losing... Of course, it’s not only Trump, but those Republicans lashed to Trump also losing, and losing. Today, they get to all lose again. Tonight, they all will get to lose again. Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have made sure that losing is the Republican way of life for a long time to come. If the Gop is capable of embarrassment, today will be one of the most embarrassing days in history for them. Clay Higgins won’t be showing up with his preposterous of evidence. Alternate, and alternate-alternate slates of electors won’t be counted into record. Trump lost and Josh Hawley will have to accept it.

Come Biden’s inauguration, Trump won’t be able to escape to Scotland, but if he tries, he’ll have to fly coach home.

With so many losing, somebody’s got to be winning, and it turns out that it is us. States across the Union were able to ship their idiots over to DC for a while. Just stay away from them, and we’ll do just fine, that’s what the police are for. (3:00pm ET update, I was wrong.) Oh, and did you hear? We get the Senate. Donald tried to shuffle executives around in order to rig the Georgia vote, but it looks as if once again the margin of victory will be too big for him. Voters turned out big in Georgia, and they weren’t Team Republican. If Democrats don’t screw with them, they will keep voting for them.

Pennsylvania state government is the banana republic federal Republicans can only dream about, as Democrat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman was forcibly removed as presiding officer and democratically elected Democrat Jim Brewster was refused to be seated by Republicans in the majority.

The EPA announced that they will limit the use of “science” because they can’t figure out how to anonymize medical data. Meanwhile, women who miscarry in OH have to rsvp their stalkers. Hey remember the COVID-19 pandemic? In California, a freezer breaks, but the vaccination line keeps moving, while in Nebraska, the Governor returns to the smallpox blanket method of eliminating undesirables.
