I'm just waiting to see how long it takes before someone says "apology tour".

Shaun, some Breadtuber guy, is immediately going ahead and trashing being in favor of Biden.

As far as the far right, well, we have QAnon melting down in one corner, and the screaming fits of Madison Cawthorn in another.

"MUH MOUNTAIN VALUES!" -says man unaware that to most of the country "mountain values" equate to incest, cannibalism, and drinking raw nuclear waste.

Here's a fact I found interesting that's reflective of the country Joe Biden now leads: only six states have Senators from (or caucusing with) different parties, which is the lowest such number since at least the 1980s. (Those states are Maine, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.)

It might have been lower at some point prior to the 1980s, but that would have been in the days of either broad coalitions (such as the FDR's New Deal coalition) or extreme polarization (such as around the Civil War).

EDIT: Further, in the forty-four states without split delegations, that state gave its electoral votes (or, in the case of Nebraska, its two statewide electoral votes) to the Presidential candidate of the same party as its Senators.

Oh, so he's just continuing the shtick he's had going since Biden was declared the presumptive nominee. Shaun's also been collecting thousands of dollars a month on Patreon while only putting out a single video every few months, if not longer. The time between his two most recent videos was over eight months. They're all pretty well made, but I've been questioning how much of the work he does producing them after Jen, who he used the share the channel with, claimed to do most, if not all, of the work on researching his video on the Unite the Right rally. She kinda soured my view on him, especially since by that point I'd unfollowed him on Twitter because all he ever seems to do on Twitter nowadays is bitch about Biden and the Democrats. He's British, for the record.

No one should be surprised that Biden had already set up a long list of things to do on day 1. The trashfire caused by the previous president was obvious and a veteran politician like Biden actually does his homework and prepares for his job.


It is funny to see how right wingers are panicking about it though.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeah, that tracks really well with what I've seen. "What? We don't have problems with women! Just these specific women!" He really gives off a lot of tankie vibes.

Nah, I wouldn't say Shaun's a tankie, but I would say he's a bit of a hypocrite considering that he takes credit for work that he didn't do by omitting the people who actually did the work. He'll criticize capitalism all day, but will still reap the benefits of capitalism when it suits him.

Oh my goodness that headline.

Yep, they were caught so flat-footed that I bet they'll have multiple bills passed by the time the Republicans under Trump (who also had complete control of Washington) managed to come up with ONE...

Only if they kill the legislative filibuster. Manchin ruled it out, but if there's one thing that might get him to vote for it, it's what McConnell's doing right now with the organizing resolution.
