Grateful Dead, Capitol Theater, 1971 - Not Fade Away

Channeling Buddy.

That's when the GD East Coast Infection started......

Think about the political landscape 8-9 months from now.

The $1.9T infusion into battling Covid starts turning things around. Concurrently, more Trump crimeshit gets exposed. And there are lots more Trump crimeshits to come.

The Democrat's had a "murder's Row" of great House Managers.....

Everyone one of them were so so forceful in their presentations. A year ago I was blown away with the 1st Impeachment team. This year's team is equally impressive and inspiring in their competence and sincerity.

Contrast to the "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil" hired braintrust of Donald Trump's defense..

John Flannery, the really smart legal guy on with Ari Melber.....

He's got Robert Redford hair. What an interesting and insightful guest......Ari sets him up all the time with Hip-Hop stuff that he has no idea as to how to react. LOL, I'd be the same way.

Should new legislation be proposed and made into law to address future Insurrection?

I paid attention to the moron who said, "we'll be back with 30,000 guns".....I don't think the lesson has been learned by the very dedicated hardcore mercenaries that will fight to install Donald Trump. Lots of Russian money to be had overthrowing our Democracy.

I really like the evolution of TV communications with getting people to

broadcast directly from their homes. I really think it will continue. And you know, it's nice to hear dogs and animals that occasionally pop up during these interviews. It's humanizing.

Idea about Democratic fundraising for DU.

1st, shout out to OmahaSteve for developing the DU/Actblue links for the 2020 Election. Job well done. It also told me that we are a significant fundraising group for the Party.

So, could DU develop a permanent page of National/State/City ActBlue links for all elected (or running) Democrats?

For instance, I like Eric Swalwell's comments on MSNBC a few minutes ago so worth I wanted to make a quick donation. I probably will take the time to find it, but what a powerful tool (a searchable database with hotlinks to their fundraising sites) that would be. Tracking the dollars DUer's spend for each candidate would be interesting as well.

Is Sen. Coons the person sitting by the Senate doors?

If so, why? Some arcane procedural reason? Or he does he like the view from his seat?

So what's to stop the Senate from investigating the US LEO that relate to Congressional protection?

I do believe this Insurrection was planned, in advance, and required de-positioning certain assets that would protect the US Capitol. Trump controlled the chess pieces and this deserves a full Senate Review....and if warranted sending their evidence to the DOJ for review and potential criminal indictments.

My takeaway just watching Brian Williams opening.

1) Kristol is bailing on whatever the GOP is. Don't fucking care about Bill Kristol.
2) The black dude is an outstanding political communicator. Want to see and hear more from this guy.
