Oh, noes! Not Kim and Kanye! – In the major breaking news of Tuesday, Kim Kardashian is filing for a divorce from Kanye West:

Oh, darn. They were such a perfect couple. *sigh*
Here, Glenn Greenwald sums up my feelings about Kelly Loeffler’s career in 280 characters:
Ì’d be happy never having to see or hear from her again. She never won a single election, just (legally) bought a seat. She’s devoid of any redeeming attributes in terms of public life. https://t.co/QFFdCmB3np

None of what took place in Georgia yesterday would have happened had corrupt Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp done the right thing and appointed then-Congressman Doug Collins to the vacant Georgia Senate seat in 2019. Instead, he picked the moneyed Kelly Loeffler because, well, she’s married to a billionaire and Kemp no doubt profited handsomely from his appointment of said billionaire’s wife.
In stark contrast to Collins, a preacher who is not a moneyed individual, Loeffler is your standard-issue country club Republican who has all the political appeal to the Trump support base of an over-ripe turnip. She and David Perdue, another standard-issue country club Republican, both lost on Tuesday because GOP voter turnout was highly depressed across the state.
Gee, wonder why it would be depressed? Oh, we can try to blame it all on Mitch McConnell for his refusal to allow the Senate to vote on a clean $2,000 COVID relief payment. After all, polls show that late-deciding voters who voted for the Democrats cited their desire for the money as their main reason for their irrational decision.
Or we can try to blame it all on President Trump for his fully justified bashing of Governor Kemp and Secretary Raffensperger. And really, this probably was a factor.
But the reality is that the Georgia runoffs presented conservatives with the same bad choice they faced in the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections: A choice between voting for a fake conservative or staying home. Now, we’re supposed to be surprised that thousands of those voters stayed home? Please.
Thus, as with everything else that has taken place in this travesty of an election season in Georgia, the preponderance of the blame for it all must be laid at the doorstep of the state’s travesty of a Governor, with a major supporting role going to the utterly corrupt Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger. Georgia Republicans now know who to blame, but the safe money says they will nominate these two grifter RINOs all over again when the run for re-election in 2022.
The crowd in DC today will be epic. – Here is what Freedom plaza looked like at about 3:00 on Tuesday:
The NFL didn’t attract that many fans combined to its game throughout the 2020 season. And that’s the day before the big event, with hundreds of thousands of freedom-loving Americans still en route to the nation’s capital.
The President himself will be speaking at the event at 11:00 Eastern time:
I will be speaking at the SAVE AMERICA RALLY tomorrow on the Ellipse at 11AM Eastern. Arrive early — doors open at 7AM Eastern. BIG CROWDS! pic.twitter.com/k4blXESc0c

You can be sure that this speech will be epic. What happens after that is anyone’s guess.
He should’ve taken the train. – An entire plane-load of such Americans happened to be joined on their flight out of Salt Lake City by the king of all the RINOs, Mitt Romney. During the flight, they treated the despicable traitor to a very appropriate serenade:

Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
While that was going on, CNN was treating its viewers to the single most intellectually-bankrupt panel discussion in world history:
Ana says identity politics is "a stupid phrase meant to trigger." Then, Amanda says Mooch is stupid because he worked for Trump. Then Mooch says that Amanda worked for Ted Cruz who is a "full-on traitor."

Hard to imagine who even thinks of putting together such a panel of screeching dimwits. If these people did not already exist, you could never in a million years make them up.
It’s fine for me but not for thee. – While those and many other raging asshats on cable news channels declare Republicans who will challenge the official Electoral College results in today’s joint session of congress to be engaging in sedition and even treason, MRCTV put together this clip from the salad days in which Democrats challenging the official election results was, you know, cool and stuff or something:
FLASHBACK: Democrats have a long history of objecting to election results when Republicans win. And we have the proof. pic.twitter.com/PpmRtRP0VH

Oh. Funny how that works.
Meanwhile, at the joint session of congress… – The pressure will be on Vice President Mike Pence to do what he has no apparent constitutional authority to do, and unilaterally reject the electoral slates from states who conducted clearly fraudulent elections on November 3, regardless of how congress actually votes today.
President Trump apparently believes Pence does somehow have this authority, though, and sent out this tweet last night making that belief crystal clear:
If Vice President @Mike_Pence comes through for us, we will win the Presidency. Many States want to decertify the mistake they made in certifying incorrect & even fraudulent numbers in a process NOT approved by their State Legislatures (which it must be). Mike can send it back!

Hooboy. Not a great day to be the Veep, with your boss expecting you to perform a miracle, and a million ordinary Americans on the streets of DC backing him up.
To be clear: I really, really wish Vice President Pence did have the authority to take the action that the GOP controlled state legislatures of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Arizona have been too cowardly to take on their own authority – authority which is actually granted in the Constitution. But it’s pretty clear that Pence has no such authority, and he swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. Thus, it’s also pretty clear that President Trump and a million Americans on the streets of DC are going to go away late today very disappointed with the ultimate outcome from the day’s events.
The bottom line: What we Trump supporters want to happen today is just not how the system works. Our disappointment and ire should be focused on the state legislatures named above and on the federal courts that have also refused to properly weigh in on the massive fraud deployed by the Democrats to steal this election.
Because those are the people who truly failed to honor their oaths to uphold the constitution, not Vice President Pence.
That is all.
