David Waldman kept me sane. Probably you, too. Is it thick or is it thin today? Either way, we always have a Kagro in the Morning to help go through it. We sure needed a lot of KITMs to get us to today. We all needed a KITM on November 9, 2016, so we got one, and we sure need one today, so here we are. Yay! Let’s all go get our questions answered and our marbles corralled:

Greg Dworkin joined Greta Thunberg and the rest of the world to present a one gun salute to the departing administration of… Of? ...Who was that guy again? 

No, we won’t forget Donald Trump that easily, or so soon, unfortunately. You know Trump will be back in some other form, like herpes. Oh, Donald Trump will always be aroundHe'll be all around in the dark — Trump’ll be everywhere. Wherever you can look - wherever there's a fight, so hungry people can eat, He’ll be there. Wherever there's a cop beatin' up a guy, Donald'll be there. He'll be in the way guys yell when they're mad…. Wait. No. Sorry Q-balls! Donald Trump’ll be in Mar-a-Lago.

Donald couldn’t remember Joe or Kamala this morning, but his last night at the White House was full of reminiscing about old friends like sloppy Stephen KG Bannon, and Elliott Broidy, the guy that threw himself on that Clearblue landmine to save Trump’s life back in ‘Nam, and uhm... Lil Wayne and Kodak Black. The rest aren’t “really friends” per se, it’s more like they have “shared interests”. Regrets go out to Rudy Giuliani and the kids, better luck next time!

Anyhow, Rudy is still finishing up his felonies and missed the deadline. Lauren Boebert just started, and isn’t even sure what the word “tour” means. Senator Ron Johnson is unhinged and uninformed, so the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel set him straight, with footnotes. Most of the nation’s Republican state attorneys general may have invalidated their own positions.

The one tap Trump turned off to the swamp, he made certain that he turned back on before he left.  Joe will turn it back off. Looneys will still loon, but white power will shrink. Democracy gets another chance, but Donald Trump needs to be convicted first. 

Robinette, eh? I’ll have to get used to typing that and many other cheerful things. The United States Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies did a pretty good job today, especially whoever came up with selecting Amanda Gorman. Welcome to the new world! If Mitch and Chuck can come together on the filibuster, or even if they don’t, things are looking up.
