This entire process is normally pro forma, bureaucratic humdrum. But Trump refuses to concede so he has essentially produced a reality TV show where he gets his ass kicked by Joe Biden every day. https://t.co/QU2POJK9vx

Laura Ingraham tries to break it to MAGA Ville that Mayor McPumpkin lost and that ain’t changing.

To the reporters asking whether any of these suits have a chance at SCOTUS:
You're asking whether a homeowner, opening the door to find a flaming bag of dog poop on the front porch, wants to bring the bag inside to use as a Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Dick Grenell is big mad that journalists are using positive terms to describe Biden appointing competent, experienced people – so, people unlike Grenell basically. https://t.co/0fyUSxJ5Sh

I kind of like that guy who says “I mite as well give up …. I’ll never fkn vote again” If only the US had more Republicans like him.
So? What’s less embarrassing to a narcissist – the legal asskicking coming his way, or his entire Soviet shitpile mobster Trump humper bastard administration throwing themselves into an active volcano?

Bring on the taco trucks!
Hehe. Love the hashtag.
@scav: Sorry. “Taco trucks ever corner” was a Hillary 2016 racist Russthuglican “threat.” Not applicable now.
But beating the living shit out of the Russthuglican party for the rest of time IS applicable.
In other news, it’s 12:50 a.m., and I have just finished the first 30 minutes of a 2 hour bake time for a cheesecake to be eaten by my boss on Thursday. To be fair, in exchange, she’s frying a turkey for my family.
@mrmoshpotato: Ok, I’ll just walk the extra block to get my carne asada fuel for the beatdown. But I will nevertheless have some norteño on my soundtrack. Plus some French pop because that scares everyone.
It’s true. That Laura Ingram video is satisfying to watch.
Talk about some serious shade. Eugene Robinson is bringing his A game today.
It goes on…

In honor of taco trucks on every corner, and rich lexicons of abject failure, Team Trump PA are pinche pendejos.

To be fair, almost 74 million voters made exactly that decision on Election Day.
Fortunately, the other 80 million voted for Joe Biden.
@prostratedragon: Thank you.
@Chetan Murthy: Weirdly, I see the strike button now, but it wasn’t there earlier. Must have been a rendering or processing error on my computer.

You’re asking if the Biden cabinet will make room for members of the political party that sells t-shirts reading: “I’d rather be a Russian than a Democrat!”?
Yeah, I don’t think so. You fucking moron.
Honestly, I have difficulty even imagining members of the Treason Party qualifying for a security clearance these days.
After hearing Sidney Powell state that Doug Collins was the actual winner in his GA Senate race before Hugo Chavez changed the votes I am encouraging all MAGAts to rectify that injustice by casting write in votes for Collins in both runoff elections.
Release the Kracken!
Re: the idea of naming a Republican to the cabinet …
I’ll bet OMB would lure Toomey into giving up his Senate slot (he’s already said he’s not running for reelection in 2022) …
And Wolf could fill the slot for 2 years plus give a Dem incumbency for the midterm.
@dm: Hahaha. “Sit down kiddies. I have some bad news.”
I wonder how they’ll deliver the “Your god emperor is burning in Hell.” news. I hope Faux news doesn’t exist anymore then.
Also, fuck their feelings.
@mrmoshpotato: I WANT MY TACO TRUCK!

@Kent: Fabulous column. I have just short-listed The Warmth of Other Suns on my reading list.
I want every Democrat to find their field barren of fucks.
And I got up way too early because we had to put our 13 year old Reverend Jim to sleep yesterday. We all miss him so much.
Oh, WB, I’m so terribly sorry. He was a magnificent guy.
@WereBear: What a beauty he was. I’m so sorry.
@WereBear: So very sorry to hear this. All my condolences.
@WereBear: I’m sorry.
Thank you all,. Sir Tristan woke me up at 3 AM complaining that he’d been patient enough, where was his buddy? He took me on a tour of RJ’s favorite sleeping spots, clearly demonstrating he’d been searching for him through the night.
All I can tell them is I know he made a big splash when he returned to the Pool of Souls.
@WereBear: Deepest condolences WereBear! You gave him a good and well-loved life.
@WereBear: Commenter Just One More Canuck mentioned this on the JRubin thread last night but it got lost in the political discussion. So very sorry. What a life he had with you and his crew! I believe you did a guest post on him a number of years ago and I still remember the story of how he got to you.
@WereBear: Terrible news, WereBear. He joins our Spike in the pantheon of amazing Maine Coons. May they reign in our memories forever.
@WereBear: Truly sorry. Finding WoC and your 4-legged family via here is one of the highlights of my BalloonJuice experience. He will be missed.
As tRump shambles off with numerous legal proceedings waiting for him, am I wrong to hope that if he runs away, there’s a Shah leaving Iran type of scenario awaiting him???
You, sir-or-madam-or-other, are a genius!
Imagine nominating, say, Rand Paul for a sub-Cabinet post. What are the chances that he won’t tell some easily-provable lie on his SF-86, thereby committing a Federal felony offense? Bye-bye, see you in 5 years, Randy!
Rinse and repeat until the water runs less treasonous.
@A woman from anywhere (formerly Mohagan):
It is a wonderful book. Go for it!
@WereBear: I’m up too early too, and so sorry to read of your loss.
@A woman from anywhere (formerly Mohagan):
It’s an awesome book, it really is. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I read it six or eight years ago – I think Ta-Nehisi Coates recommended it on his blog.
@WereBear: I am so sorry for you, Mr Werebear and your other cats. Our rottmix dog died a couple of months ago and Shadow/Meankitty is still lost and bereft.
@WereBear: Farewell Reverend Jim. May his memory be a blessing and a balm for your grief.
I’m so sorry for you. I’m glad you had him, and he had you, for 13 years.
Who’d’a thought this room would be so dusty this early in the day?
@WereBear: so sorry to read this. That is such a gut wrenching decision to make. Sorry for your loss.
@WereBear: My sincere condolences.
Saw a tweet yesterday, post-MI-cert, saying “Biden’s won in Michigan so many times he’s legally required to change his name to Ohio State.”
I thought that was pretty amusing
ETA: Although, technically, I guess it would probably have to be “The Ohio State.”
@p.a.: ?? Then who is our Khomeini?
@Joey Maloney: This. The necessary reform is very simple. You want to run for elective office, or be nominated for appointive office? Then you pass (A) the new-citizen exam, (B) a security clearance, (C) life underwriting. Once in office, repeat (B) and (C) at intervals not to exceed 12 months: fail and you are out, right then, no discussion.
@Kent: I want to marry that column in a socially distant ceremony.
@WereBear: I’m sorry for your loss.
@WereBear: Oh no. I am so sorry.
@Frank Wilhoit: Just thinking more of the: “no, you can’t stay here. Move along.” aspect.
@WereBear: Sorry to hear about your Reverend Jim. You get so accustomed to them, it’s shocking when they’re no longer there.
@WereBear: That’s heartbreaking. I’m so sorry to hear about your sweet boy
edit: still crying.
The Laura Ingram video was something else. Just like Trump, his cult members are babies who need to be let down gently. No “fuck your feelings” for them, instead they are treated as the most delicate snowflakes whose hurt feelings need to be given huge consideration. It makes me want to vomit.
Sorry about your loss, WearBear. It’s tough to lose a family member.
That “Southerners still waiting” comment was incredible.
My favorite comment on the shitgibbon’s losses: “Biden’s won so much in Michigan he’s legally obligated to change his name to Ohio State.”
Thanks, everyone, about Reverend Jim. He was the inspiration for the blog and the books, so his work will go on!
Fear not, the news of Trumplthinskins’s departure from this mortal coil will be prominently smeared all over Stinklayer and the Obstreperous American Nazis Nutwork.
@WereBear: Awww. My condolences. He was a lovely cat.
The Fat White Duchess
@WereBear: I’m so sorry. Such a hard thing to have to do.
@WereBear: Oh, no! He was such a beautiful, loving boy.
Very sorry for your loss, WereBear. My Maine Coon was the purest love of my life. Love your image of the pool of souls. May his memory be a blessing to your household community.
The Very Reverend Crimson Fire of Compassion
@WereBear: I’m so sorry. May some of that splash land on you.
So sorry you lost RJ. You will be seeing him in the shadows for quite a while. I still see Simmons here and there. They are always with us.
J R in WV
So sorry for your bad news; it is so hard!
He was a great cat, I can tell from your stories and photos of the senior cat. Plus a great name!
Take care, stay safe.
Thanks for sharing catty things with us Jackals!
