KamalaHarris

Time after time, Melania Trump slapped her husband’s hand away faster than a hummingbird could flap its wings. Assuming fusion power fails to pan out, it’s nice to know that her phalanges-flickin’ wrist is an untapped source of renewable energy that will last us at least until her death—or until...

I’m probably a lot closer on the political spectrum to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez than I am to Joe Biden—and not just because I prefer a Starbucks triple venti nonfat soy caramel baby’s blood macchiato to whatever low-rent greasy spoon baby’s blood bevvie Biden drinks. Probably has Sanka in it. Pfft. So I appreciate what AOC is saying...

I’ll make this quick because the video speaks for itself. For four years we sat by, mouths immutably agape, as Donald Trump tossed paper towels at hurricane victims and made the COVID pandemic all about himself. But with the return of competence to the White House, we also saw a...

Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has learned from the death of Bernie Madoff about Ponzi schemes, because QAnon surely couldn’t be a cult of personality or a grift used by criminals in charge. Because the previous guy still says “the best is yet to come”, having killed hundreds of thousands, we also know...

After Joe Biden’s speech to the nation last week, conservatives were their usual snowflakey selves, wondering where all the plaudits for Donald Trump’s maladministration were. To be fair, Trump did launch Operation Warp Speed. Or, rather, his administration launched it … and came up with a cool nickname. That said, the...

Donald Trump’s time in office was defined by death, destruction, disarray, and multiple attacks on democracy. Yet we must never forget that Trump’s legacy also includes an evil milestone, reached in 2018, when the United States, for the first time ever, ranked among the top five deadliest countries for journalists....

While our attention was consumed by the latest Republican shiny object, Vice President Kamala Harris the originator of the pearls and Chucks meme, un-clutched her pearls, laced up her Chucks, and cast her first tie-breaking vote in the Senate.

Ok, in case you haven’t heard: President Biden promised to get more relief to Americans quickly to help people survive financially until the pandemic is under control.

This post-election period has been like no other, for reasons I don’t need to restate.

Ideally, if Democrats do their job up to and on Jan. 5, we will win both of Georgia’s Senate seats, and secure a bare majority in both chambers of Congress. Coupled with President-elect Joe Biden, this small trifecta means, at the very least, that our government can still function. This is a...
