.@KamalaHarris on whether she's spoken to the following:
— @VP: "Not yet."
— @senatemajldr: "I can't speak directly to that."
— @GavinNewsom: Did not answer when asked by reporters if they've talked about a replacement for her Senate seat.

Transitions are boring and should be boring for a reason: in the U.S., the peaceful transfer of power is so routine that it is predictable and boring. May it ever be so.

Elsewhere, the Squatter-in-Chief’s minions made (even bigger) fools of themselves in Gettysburg. But they did it without the presence of Dear Leader, because yet another Trumpkin tested COVID-positive. All that needs to be said about that event, per a legal expert:
I am vexed by your attempt to overturn my Republic, but I am ENRAGED by your insolent insistence on using the stupidest fucking people who ever lived to do it.

The speech was fantastic.
He’s not an orator like Obama, but he is so sincere and calming.
A good story, and on Thanksgiving even.
Maine dog on her way home after 10 months on the run
Oh, ISN’T he? Tell you what, I voted for Biden, I was rooting for Biden, but I didn’t expect to become so dang FOND of him!
Sounds like old men yelling at clouds.
Please no. We are in the midst of an existential environmental crisis. This is not the place for patronage jobs or on-the-job training. She has zero background in public lands management or environmental policy. Give the job to Deb Haaland who would be the first Native American interior secetary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deb_Haaland
If boring is the result of competence, I’m all for it. Maybe as an informed citizen I should know who the postmaster general is, but I really don’t want to. Also don’t want to know who the GSA administrator is or the head of the CDC much less the secretary of state elections in Georgia.
We are just so thirsty for normal, decent people of good will.
Tom Ridge has been one of the stalwarts.
@germy: yeah lady we returned that defective asshole. Didn’t even need a fucking receipt
Sort of OT but- Is anyone but me wondering if Biden will get the Trump President’s Daily Briefing (or whatever it’s called) with the pictures, short words and Trump on every page or the adult version?
May God bless Joseph R. Biden Jr.
Thank you, Mr President-elect.
@realbtl: The President-elect is an adult, he’ll get the adult version. He’ll probably ask questions.
Haaland has the backing of over fifty House Democrats.
I thought that Trump’s Daily Briefing was watching Fox News in his underwear? This is available to anyone.
@Brachiator: Except Baud, he doesn’t wear underwear.
Gettysburg, 1863 – Americans die to preserve government of the people, by the people, for the people.
Gettysburg, 2020 – Americans lie to destroy government of the people, by the people, for the people.

Why can’t she talk about whether she spoke with McTurtle or not? What am I missing here?

The Moar You Know
@Kent: Not one post. The nation can’t afford it. More than at any time in my lifetime, we need nothing but competent people at the wheel. All others are simply going to have to find something else to do.
I know we owe an awful lot of people for getting Trump out of office, but we cannot pay those debts like this.
She’s still a member of the Senate. Releasing details of what was almost surely an off the record conversation between senators is situationally a minefield.
Ah, I see.
Boring indeed! #46 gave interviews in the recent days, and a speech today, and …. I FELT NO NEED to find excerpts, or read about ’em. B/c I know he’ll do a competent job! I felt no need to learn about the details of his appointments, b/c I know he’ll pick competent people. I might disagree with some of them, but they’ll be *competent*.
No Drama. No Drama. Oh god, I have so longed-for no drama.
@zhena gogolia: THAT is the Biden secret sauce, right there.
@The Moar You Know:
This is not the place for patronage jobs or on-the-job training.
I totally agree. It’s funny how some politicians think that an election means business as usual for their side, and come looking for rewards and favors.
I guess it’s an inevitable part of politics and Biden will need to keep some pols happy. But I hope he can be judicious about it and keep it to a minimum.
Honestly? I hope he gets both. The full version with big words and shit, because Joe’s a grownup, and the one-pager with pictures because laugh and point.
While I wouldn’t for a minute put it past the White House to whip up a phony version each day for delivery to Biden, am also confident they are so functionally inept that such a ploy would quickly be discovered.
I understand what you’re saying, but I urge you to watch the entire 45-minute presentation of the natsec team yesterday, as well as today’s speech. They are truly calming and inspiring.
Interior needs to go to a Westerner or failing that, somebody deeply immersed in natural resources management and Western politics.
Interior has been run by the head lobbyist for the nation’s largest and richest irrigation district, who rely 100% on federal water deliveries and overdraft of groundwater. You can guess whose bidding he has been doing since taking office (e.g., Shasta Dam height increase project).
They’re also be fending off the Bundy clan, so there’s that.
“Sir, we have strong backchannel chatter regarding impending invasions by Antifa and the Duchy of Grand Fenwick.”
I’m assuming that Biden’s PDB will come directly from the IC, not filtered through the WH.
Biden, I’m sure, will (as he must) take the security briefings with dead seriousness; yet once he’s received and absorbed the daily information, I can easily see him sharing a chuckle with the briefers over the Little Golden Books edition.
I’d imagine the people doing the briefing are career civil servants.
Give it to a person with a native indian ancestry. No one will care more about the land than them.

@cain: I thought Deb Haaland was being vetted for Interior. I suppose lots of people are though.
O/T. Huh. Have you ever removed a frozen prepared dinner from the freezer (meat-lover’s lasagna in this instance) because you weren’t interested in fussing tonight, stuck it on a baking tray in the oven, set the timer for the recommended 50 minutes of cook time, and when (and only when) the timer dinged, realised that you had neglected to turn the oven on?
hehe! Lincoln Project just posted a Thankgiving ad to their youtube channel.
Lots of good, moving, rather typical political-ad stuff. And then, smack in the middle of it all: line of BLM activists behind a big banner. And their caption, ‘grassroots activists’.
They turned comments off. I love it. Gauntlet, thrown. The Trumpists have pissed them off SO much that now they are Republicans (or former republicans) outright supporting and running cover for BLM. In the face of the WHOLE Trumpist movement actively demonizing BLM as hard as humanly possible.
All I can say is right on. :)
@germy: Maybe she really can’t speak directly to that. Give her some trust.
@Dorothy A. Winsor: she probably is. Carol Moseley Braun is just lobbying for the job in the media. I was just responding to that. Give her an ambassadorship or something.
@cain: That’s just swapping stereotypes and appointing iconically. I want a swot, someone that knows all the levers and byways for this post, same as all the other posts.
TS (the original)
And I’d like to see the media ask Pence & McConnell if THEY have spoken to the VP-elect. They should have been in touch to congratulate her on becoming the VP.
@SiubhanDuinne: I know but wouldn’t it be great to see a leaked comparison?
I am LOVING all of this boring competence. And the correlated fact that for the first time in longer than I can remember (4 years?) I am sleeping through the night without chronic anxiety and insomnia.
For anyone interested in the remaining House races uncalled – it seems like at this moment, the incumbent Democrat Anthony Brindisi is leading in his rematch against former Rep. Claudia Tenney by 12-13(!) votes, in a district that Trump carried by ~15 points. In IA-02, it seems like the Democrat there (in a swing open seat) is up by 3(!!!) votes. Talk about nailbiters!
Yes… yes I have.
@SiubhanDuinne: Hehehe. We were visiting my aunt and uncle down in Florida around Christmas in the before times, and my aunt put a tray of lasagna in wrong oven. (They have a couple side-by-side in-wall electric ovens.)
The main course was a bit delayed that night.
@Chris Johnson: That was lovely, just a celebration of decency in America. It got to me with the music and all.
Absolutely it would! So let it be written, so let it be done.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
@Kent: I suspect that, as with Rahm Emmanuel, the source for that rumor is the only person who thinks that might happen. Obama is pretty dismissive of CMB in his memoir.
@mrmoshpotato: My Mom did that with a pork roast on Christmas Eve thirty years ago which we did not discover until we were back from church. Her total humiliation was worse to experience than the dinner. We just sliced the undone roast and cooked the slices, but my mom was inconsolable.
@TS (the original): Under this scenario, I’m guessing McConnell would like to keep in the low down. But what do I know?
Lovely. And seeing Col. Alexander Vindman under the “patriots” rubric just tore me up. I know Adam has said that there’s no obvious nor appropriate role for Vindman in a Biden administration, but I really do hope there’s some slot that’s right for him.
J R in WV
I have a rack of pork loin ribs in the oven right now, have been baking for about two hours. First 90 minutes wrapped in foil, two bastes with BBQ sauce half an hour apart. Roasted tiny potatoes, cole slaw.
Baked a lemon pound cake with fresh raspberries in earlier this afternoon. Only thing we’re doing for Thanksgiving, I’m cooking more and fancier for the long weekend.
Tomorrow a small Turkey breast, stuffing, green beans, masked potatoes, gravy. Eventually I have a small apple smoked ham to cook. Sparkling white French wine, also too. Otherwise, just wife and I at home.
Drinking, watching the news, eating well.
Petting the dogs and cats.
Loving most everyone on Balloon Juice, also too.
Everyone, take care!!
@SiubhanDuinne: Yes, showing him there was well done.
He’s only 45. He’s got a lot of time and opportunity for contributions ahead of him.
Lawfare (from 11/13/2020):
It is worth pointing out that the only reason Americans were dying at Gettysburg was because other Americans were fighting against government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Trump is just carrying on an old and dishonorable tradition.

@AnotherBruce: I was assuming that as well – but I think Kamala is going above & beyond if she allows him to speak off the record – then again, she may well see an advantage in same.

Great news about LT Col Vindeman.
Watched his testimony with great interest, he seemed like a great intellect, loyal to the nation he swore an oath to, as opposed to the malignant people who wound up in charge of the nation, briefly.
How can people forget their oath, to the Constitution, not to any person? I was avoiding the draft when I swore my oath, and I’ve worked to keep honest to that oath for 50 years now, almost.
Not so for Trumpians, not at all. Didn’t listen to what they were saying, did they!
@J R in WV:
So even the potatoes are masked now.
@cain: I agree that a Native American would be a good choice as to the stewardship of the lands.
Even more important, the Bureau of Indian Affairs falls under the Interior Department.
I don’t believe I knew he was so young. He has decades of public service ahead of him, if the PTB recognise his expertise, willingness, and availability. Not to mention the PR value of having him in a public-facing job.
@J R in WV:
What the hell happened to my invitation to Thanksgiving dinner at your house?
I blame Louis de Joy.

I predict that Alexander Vindman has a very bright future.
@Another Scott: Great news about Vindman getting a great post. We’ve had a number of brave patriots in perilous times: Kizer Khan comes to mind.
@germy: I’m guessing since Harris is a Senator, she speaks to Mitch fairly frequently. She’s not giving up the state of negotiations.
@Wapiti: BIA has been a rats nest for decades. My best friend’s father wound up at BIA and hid in the basement legal library to get away from the people who spent their days tormenting native people. He found some treaties that got turned into sovereignty. Lots of Indian guys are named after him – they got the name wrong but he didn’t care.
@J R in WV:
I have a rack of ribs thawing for the slow cooker tomorrow.
@germy: How do her constituents feel about it?
I know people talk about not poaching Democratic Senators, but I’m not sure we should be poaching Dem Representatives either, even from safe districts. : (
@SiubhanDuinne: Could be worse, when I was a kid my mom put a roast in the oven and forget it was there, we went somewhere and arrived home to see smoke billowing out of the windows. The only casualty was the roast.
@SiubhanDuinne: Oh, noes! I hope you weren’t so ravenous you just decided to eat it frozen!
Cranberry relish prepared, cooling before going into fridge to gel overnight. Trying something a wee bit different this year, 2/3 sugar and 1/3 honey rather than all sugar. Costco earlier in the month had a 2 lb. bag of cranberries, used ’em all.
Mandatory taste test of the Grand Marnier before adding to the cranberry dish.
I blame Louis de Joy
@mrmoshpotato: I need good crockpot recipes.
Nope, just came to terms with the fact that I’d be hungry for another hour, preheated the oven as instructed, and actually just finished eating a couple of minutes ago.
Have terrible hiccups, though, which I haven’t had in ages. Hope I can get rid of them soon.
Yes, I’ll save you all the effort, I know all the hiccup remedies — the ones that work, and the ones that don’t. Thanks anyway.
@SiubhanDuinne: Was this a conscious use of Tom Papa’s template of his monologues on Live From Here? In any case, well told.
Yup yup yup
It was, yes.
@SiubhanDuinne: Always keep PBJ ingredients on hand.
Haven’t used a slow cooker in a lo-o-o-ong time. When I did this old standby was my go-to; still have the original 1970s edition.

a tweet from Matt Gaetz, no less
TCM is showing a Sean Connery marathon now. On at this moment is Thunderball, which is not near the best of the Connery Bonds, but as a period piece of the 1960s can hardly be equaled. His Bond is next door to a rapist, but of course it works for him. Some good Blofeld scenes though. Also the cars are amazing. As a child of the ’60s, the two things that were better than now were the music and the cars.
PS: I know automobiles today are incredibly more advanced than back then, I mean ’60s cars were designed to be HOT. And they were.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist
From John Barron?
@JMG: I put a new starter in my 66 chevy today and, along with the new flamethrower ignition, it’s hot fo sho!
@SiubhanDuinne: I only knew Tom Papa from that Wedding Referee show he did with Seinfeld, but got to watching a few of those Live From Here monologues after I was on youtube watching some of the music from that show–I really liked them. I should go back and watch more of Papa’s stuff. A shame that radio show was cancelled–just this spring/summer

@Suzanne: Crockpot Applesauce. Making it for the second time as a side dish. Delicious.

Tomorrow is a V small turkey breast, 3 lbs, mashed potatoes, dressing, green salad, green beans, gravey.
Saturday, applewood smoked ham, other stuff. Champers for all these dinners, in honor of the election we won.
Going to contribute to GA’s Stacy Abrams GOTV Org later tonight. In honor of taking the Senate!!!
You can come up if you want… have you been quarantined for 14 days? Place is a wreck, dogs in charge, hair everywhere. Still recovering from roof – tree impact… But all happy anyways…
@raven: Total envy. At one point in life, a long time ago, I had a Camaro 396 SS. Now I drive a Subaru Forester. Live in Boston, having a hot car is stupid. Winter kills them, and if it doesn’t, the other drivers do.
@SiubhanDuinne: Dear Ms. Duinne,
Within the past two weeks, I have woken up in morning, sat at dining table in sweats, stared at my mug for fifteen minutes, then realized that if I wanted a cuppa tea, I really should turn on the burner under the teakettle.

@SiubhanDuinne: He got a 2-year paid fellowship with Lawfare! They interviewed him on a podcast in the last week or so, and then even more recently than that, the podcast was him answering a collection of questions at some event. The army totally screwed him, but he has landed on his feet
edit: and of course Another Scott got there first, with better details.
sean connery’s bond WAS a rapist. he raped the SHIT out of pussy galore in goldfinger.
@J R in WV: I’ve made the PeptoBismol one a couple of times, and it looks insane. I don’t eat the stuff, just make it for the other guests, so I have no idea how it tastes. The years I have made it I also made a more standard relish just in case. The Stanberg versions have been well received, and is a snap to make.
@NotMax: I reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup for a bag of cranberries, and it’s perfect.
@briber: I once did that on Thanksgiving. Wondered why I couldn’t smell the turkey! Late, very late, dinner.
@J R in WV
Fresh cranberries, sugar, OJ, Grand Marnier (or Drambuie), crushed pineapple (drained). That’s it. Optional: chopped walnuts or other nuts of choice.
Cranberries rinsed and drained until dry, then softened in the microwave for around 8 to 10 minutes, then mashed – except a couple of spoonfuls left unmashed to top it all (use a big bowl that cranberries take up about half of for this, cover loosely with waxed paper, weight that with a paper plate). Stir in the other ingredients while mashing after berries have been softened.
OK, time for my story. Thanksgiving 1998, we’d just moved up to southern MD from southwest VA maybe 7 weeks earlier. We’d invited my sister, mother, and stepfather over for T-Day dinner.
About 3 hours before company was to arrive, my wife asks me to get the turkey breast from the basement, where we had both a fridge and a chest freezer. The turkey wasn’t in the fridge, it was still in the chest freezer – each of us had assumed the other one had moved it from freezer to fridge a couple days earlier, and neither of us had checked or asked the other.
So 1 or 2pm Thanksgiving afternoon, with company coming in just a few hours, we’ve got a frozen turkey breast that has zero chance of being ready in time. So I venture out, looking for a grocery that’s (a) still open, and (b) has fresh turkey breasts available, in (c) an area that I’m only starting to learn my way around. And this is before you could look up store hours on the Web.
Amazingly enough, I find an open grocery, and while they didn’t have any unfrozen turkey breasts, they had a butcher on duty who offered to take a fresh turkey and basically chop it up so we could cook the breast now, and save drumsticks, wings, etc. for another time. Needless to say, I took him up on this, and dashed home to get the breast in the oven. Meanwhile, my mother had called to say she and stepdad would be late, and was that OK? Hell yes!! (We weren’t worried about my sister, who’s never on time for anything.)
So amazingly enough, we had the bird on the table, cooked properly, when our guests arrived. But we’ll always remember that afternoon.
Reading it over, could be misread. Big bowl with waxed paper for when microwaving. Obviously remove the covering before mashing,
Checking the CA SoS, Biden’s count is at 11M and Trump at 6M. It was 2:1 after election day so looks like Trump clawed back a few percentage points among the uncounted ballots. Nice job, Donny.

@J R in WV: They called her “Ursulla Undress”.
My grandmother was not a great cook. But she had one recipe in her repertoire that everyone loved. It is a top-notch exemplar of the midcentury white people Protestant church picnic genre. Due to its complete lack of nutritional value, Mr. Suzanne has named it “Once-A-Year Dip”, though a friend who couldn’t stop eating it once asked me if I laced it with crack, so we temporarily called it “Crack Dip”. We make it for Thanksgiving, and sometimes for Superb Owl Sunday. From three generations of my family to yours, happy weird Thanksgiving.
8 oz block of cream cheese
16 oz container of small curd cottage cheese
1 cup of heavy cream
Whip the cream cheese with an electric mixer until it’s creamy and a little bit fluffy. Then add the cottage cheese and keep mixing until incorporated. Then add the heavy cream, a little bit at a time, until incorporated, and then keep mixing for another minute or two. You can do this with an electric hand mixer or a big Kitchenaid stand mixer, just make sure you scrape down the sides of the bowl if you’re using a stand mixer. Then put it in the fridge to get cool for at least an hour, or make it the day before and chill overnight.
My grandmother stopped here. I, however, *kick things up a notch* by adding pressed garlic (6-8 cloves) and freshly grated salt and pepper.
Serve with those wavy potato chips that are designed for dip and look like the ones you had at every barbecue and church youth group event in the 80s. I like the salt and pepper ridge cut ones from Trader Joe’s.
@SiubhanDuinne: One Christmas, our family steamed broccoli in the microwave for the dinner. It wasn’t until we had eaten the meal, enjoyed dessert and had washed the dishes that we realized we had forgotten to take the broccoli out of the microwave.

It took emptywheel 15 years to figure out Griftwald was nothing more than hot air.
I have realized something that is changing my thinking about Trump and pardons. During his main presidency, they were bizarrely few and far between, considering how useful they would have been to him. He’s a mean shit and helping people makes no sense to him. However, the narcissist’s reasoning changes in the lame duck session. Now issuing pardons gives him a minor power and spite rush to compensate for the extreme depression of having been publicly defeated. Bonus points that people around him are begging for pardons for their friends.
@raven: Ah! I had seen that but totally missed that it was in Gettysburg.
I am getting a link showing up in my social media feed “Top Winter Fashion Trends Perfect for That Netflix and Chill Vibe”. Like, STFU. I now work four days out of five while wearing slippers and yoga pants and that’s HOW I LIKE IT.
@Frankensteinbeck: Also, keeping people toadying around him, jerking them around on that leash, was helpful to him. Now it isn’t. So: pardons.
@WaterGirl: I just watched a replay on Hal Sparks show. Trump called in, because he was watching it on OANN. Jeezuz what a needy fuck he is.
I watch it so I can (sort of) understand the the crap they’re trying to pull. Rudy is just pathetic.
@SiubhanDuinne: Yep…..done it. Funny story about leaving the oven on though. A long while back I was driving my late Mother to a Doctors appointment about a hour from her house. She used to make these cookies that she called Forgotten Cookies, other folks might know them as merengues. Well the recipe is simple, beat the daylights out of egg whites and sugar till soft peaks, add in chocolate chips and nuts(optional). While you are assaulting the egg whites and spooning the results on a cookie sheet, pre heat your oven to 350, place cookies in oven close the door and this is the important TURN OFF the oven and leave said cookies for several hours. We got home four hours later Mom and I walked into the house to the strong smell of carbon, Mom ran to the oven and the next thing I hear was a rarity, “Shit…..I didn’t turn the damn oven off”

@NotMax: Yeah, I can see that being good, too. I think it’s a nice base recipe that could be great with multiple variations. I made an Italian herb version once. I really liked it.
Another version I would try would be with Cholula or Valentina and cilantro.
@NotMax: or Worcestershire sauce and that salted beef in a jar(once you’ve soaked it for bit to desalinate it).

It was offered to Redford and Newman, but they turned it down, feeling the roles should go to Brits (Connery and Caine). Alas, Newman as Peachy would have been perfect.

that’s a great movie. connery and caine are having SO much fun.
@Suzanne: You wound me madam….I would never deign to use that for a dish as delicate and nuanced as shit on a shingle. That dear lady requires Libby’s roast beef in can……hmph
with any luck this is not co-workers trying to get rid of an asshole colleague.
I kind of hope Trump attempts to self-pardon so that I can be an insufferable piece of shit to the few remaining Trumpy douchebags I encounter.
@SiubhanDuinne: Hero of the Republic! Seems appropriate to me.
This is a sweet video of the first two Native American congresswomen, Haaland and my rep, Sharice Davids, after being sworn in. They hug, Haaland cries and wipes her eyes on Sharice’s scarf. So no, I don’t think they want to get rid of her.
