Two of the most important races—which will together determine which party has control over the Senate and the ability (or not) to pass transformative legislation—are still ongoing, and both…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

They Can’t Kill Us and We Won’t Die

Twenty-nine presidents ago, America kicked the state of Georgia out of the United States for killing Black elected officials and the Black voters who put them in office.

Joe Biden Is, Thank God, the 46th President of the United States

While the 2020 polls were once again wildly off, it appears they were just right enough and thank the fucking Lord.

Steve Kornacki step on my maps challenge

Last night, the 2020 election cycle reached a tipping point. It was not the overnight counts in Pennsylvania, nor Georgia, nor Maricopa county. It was not the almost-certainly-soon-to-be-former President’s dangerous, mendacious speech.

Just Some Nice Pictures of Our Pets to Look at For No Particular Reason

Every day is a nice day to look at the small wild animals that live in our homes, but today is an extra special day. Animals, even domesticated, cosseted fluffballs, are intuitive, you know.

Although millions of people have already voted, plenty more are expected to stand in line at their local polling places tomorrow.
