Not sure of the process going forward but imagine we’ll see other states do this if possible

Fuck the GOP so hard. Jesus Christ, what a bunch of criminal assholes.

I hope every investigative body/organization imaginable does everything in its power to hold them all to account these next four years. It won't surprise me one bit if we suddenly start seeing a bunch of GOP politicians suddenly resigning to "spend more time with their families" and whatnot.

ETA: Just got a chance to watch the clip in the post Diemen shared above. Holy. Shit. That guy went OFF and God bless him for it. Drag them. That ending bit about those two meeting their maker was particularly scorching. Can he go speak directly to Trump next?

This isn’t going to work but it shows again and again that the GOP are no longer a political party but a authoritarian cult. This isn’t just liberal vs conservative policy debates anymore, it’s democracy vs rule by force / power

I don’t think the Biden administration is prepared or even capable of going up against it.

The media sure isn’t ready to cover it considering their headlines read like “GOP exploring different angles to election victory...”

Pelosi to remain as speaker.

Dems are too scared to change things up.

Honest question though who is the heir to the speakership?

I don't think it's a situation where that is obvious. It would basically likely be a free-for-all until people start coalescing behind 1-2 candidates.

Agreed, but I think by and large it’s by one root cause: prominent Gen X politicians are largely absent. It’s similar to my field in the space industry - totally mid-career absent.

What a ridiculous little man

SFGate

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has repeated unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, caused a minor stir Tuesday after he was filmed fist-bumping Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on the Senate floor Tuesday.

Harris returned to the Senate for the first time since the election on Tuesday to vote "no" on President Donald Trump's nomination of Judy Shelton to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and Graham offered Harris a seemingly congratulatory fist bump and pat on the back on his way into the chamber.



A video of the interaction went viral on social media, with many on the left interpreting the clip as evidence that Graham — and the Republican Party at large — do not truly believe the election was "stolen" as the president has claimed, and are only publicly posturing around claims of voter fraud to stay in good graces with the president's base. Additionally, some of the president's most fervent supporters saw the fist bump as a betrayal.

Regardless, the normally innocuous gesture resulted in Graham having to explain himself to CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju given the senator's refusal to publicly acknowledge Biden as president-elect and Harris as vice president-elect. Graham told Raju he was not congratulating Harris, but rather "just saying hello."

"I haven’t a seen in her in a while," Graham said. "If it works out and they make it, I told her I wish her well and try to work where we can. We will know here in a month or so or less.”

this is so weird to me, that the generation who grew up watching people actually go to the moon and also came of age at the peak of the space shuttle program would not have a surplus of workers in the space industry. i would have figured that would sort of be the prime age to get inspired by spaceflight.

does it have to do with the funding cuts that happened in the 00s as the shuttle program ended? or did these people just never join the industry in the first place for some reason?

Probably budget cuts + original space people loved their jobs so much they never retired so few job openings occurred and it was hard to crack?

Either that or Gen X generally avoided governmental affairs as a whole, of which space is predominantly governmental.

Kinda along the lines of when Hope Hicks article came out questioning whether to comply with a subpoena

Why do we normalize horrible behavior?
