The Earth Is Round: Wingnuts' Chimerical Chickens Come Home to Roost
Proving what goes around comes around especially if it's crackpot election conspiracies, MyPillow guy Mike Lindell and his hallucinatory cronies - Rudy, Powell, Lou Dobbs, Fox News - are getting clobbered by reality. Lindell's fever-dream, 3-hour film was tagged with an epic disclaimer, the whole gang face two whopper defamation lawsuits totalling $4 billion, Dobbs just got canned, and David Hogg is starting a pillow company that vows not to try to overthrow the government (Relieved Face).

United States of Amnesia: Despite Unconscionable GOP Gaslighting, The Costs of The Riot Are Steep
Facing a Trump trial that could put their collusion with domestic terrorists on record, a craven GOP is frantically downplaying the mayhem they unleashed and deriding those seeking accountability - most visibly AOC, now the target of a smear campaign by yahoos telling her "to go fornicate yourself." But the nasty sound and fury doesn't change the truth: Lawmakers and staff are traumatized, Capitol police are still "reeling," and since the riot two of their own have killed themselves.

White Privilege: Where's Kyle?
It seems the courts have lost track of Kyle Rittenhouse, the punk who shot three people at BLM protests in Kenosha, WI last summer. Inexplicably out on bail, he was last seen at a bar drinking beer and flashing white power signs in a "Free As Fuck" t-shirt. Then he evidently moved without telling the authorities. It's a shocker, but it'd be way scarier if he'd been, say, running or sleeping or selling cigarettes or holding a cell phone or riding a bike without lights or wearing a hoodie or....

On Hubris Derangement Syndrome
Because plentiful weirdness still lurks in the water, Waxen Wonder Boy Slumlord Jared Kushner was just nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by Trump/Epstein fanboy Alan Dershowitz, a bad joke of the day likened to Hannibal Lecter nominating Jeffrey Dahmer for a Michelin Star. It's purportedly for Kushner enabling the Saudis to keep buying arms, but could also be for his botching everything, hawking our vaccines and ventilators, and still somehow making up to $120,676,949 last year.

Good Trouble Lives On: John Lewis Memorial Will Replace Confederate Monument
In an enduring tribute to his stubborn struggle "to save America from herself," Georgia officials this week voted to create a memorial to civil rights icon John Lewis in a historic square where an obelisk honoring Conferederate soldiers, aptly titled The Lost Cause, stood for over 100 years. Activists hope to portray Lewis in his Bloody Sunday trench coat and backpack, a symbol of young people as "catalysts for change in the world" and “a giant of a man with a humble heart. He met no strangers."

And She Must Go: Marjorie Taylor Greene Keeps Proving She's A Demented, Dangerous, Staggeringly Unqualified Moron
Despite stiff competition, QAnon clown Marjorie Taylor Greene clinches the Worst Person In Congress title with revelations she stays busy urging that leading Dems be executed, stalking survivors of school shootings she says were staged, arguing a laser beam from space caused California's wildfires and threatening to arrest reporters who ask her questions. Normal people say she must be expelled. The GOP leader plans to "have a conversation" with her. We suspect he'll leave his backbone at home.

Let the Loathsome Lies Begin (Again)
Like fetid sludge seeping from a storm drain, former press secretary and Wicked Witch of the Lies Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the first Trump accomplice to announce she's running for office, as governor of Arkansas. Sanders launched her bid with a gaslit, curdled, lie-filled, grievance-packed, long-ass video vowing to "defend your right to be free of socialism and tyranny" by "the radical left," and yes the ghastly woman who said it was "biblical" to put kids in cages really does talk that way.

Following the Money to Dark Places With the Stink of Trump
The veterans of the Great Capitol Insurrection, it seems, are not faring well. Scores of rioters have been arrested, many moronically incriminating themselves en route; investigations are finding the Trump campaign supplied untold millions to the pre-riot rally, often via shell companies and dark money that could constitute illegal money laundering; and weary Americans breathlessly await the spectacle of a Trump impeachment trial for what Chuck Schumer just called inciting "the erection."

Bernie's Mittens
Biden's inauguration has left many Americans elated, with shiny new hope for the Republic. Almost as many are excited about an improbable highlight of the event: The sight of Bernie Sanders, stoically bundled in his chair, in old jacket and recycled mittens. On Twitter, he's become a meme superstar, giddily wedged Zelig-like into historic moments large and small. His Bernie-ish response: " It makes people aware we make good mittens in Vermont...We have some good coats, as well."

Alright! Land of Hope and Dreams
It was a day. The brute is gone. Biden declared that fragile democracy has prevailed. Harris shattered multiple ceilings as she was sworn in by Sonia Sotomayor with her hand on Thurgood Marshall's Bible. Black, brown, young, female voices spoke. Among them was poet Amanda Gorman, who called on an "era of just redemption" for "a country that is bruised, but whole." That night, Sprinsteen echoed her, invoking sorrows left behind "and all this darkness past." Not yet, but light glimmers.
