Quote of the Day

"We're back to a majority as big as any of us have seen in our lifetimes. It may be a hundred-year majority."—Chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee and Republican Representative from Oregon Greg Walden.

Walden also noted: "We're back with youth, we're back with diversity, and we're back with women."

LOL settle down, pal.

Call me a cockeyed optimist, but I suspect that, just like every other time voters have gotten a good whiff of the Republican agenda, that majority will be short-lived.

That said, let us all say a prayer and sacrifice a gold car elevator upon the altar of our lord and savior Jesus Jones for the continued good health of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

And her marginally progressive compatriots.

(I know that sounds flippant, but I'm actually quite serious. Apart from wishing Bader Ginsburg well just on general human principle, whether she can remain seated until another Democratic majority is also a real concern. Which is fucked up and another reason that lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court are the worst.)
