This would be much worse

if they were any good at enacting their evil schemes.  They're shaping up to be a pack of cartoon Batman villains.  In the true spirit of "It's Always Opposite Day in Trumpistan," I must say I really am enjoying so much winning!  I mean, they only had 7 or 8 (depending on where you start counting) years to come up with an alternative to the ACA. They had nothing. Let's think about this: the Republicans hold the WH, the House and the Senate. They bitched and moaned and held vote after vote for the last 7 years, wasting time and millions of dollars to repeal Obamacare.  Never could pull it off.

This was their shining moment, they have control of Congress and the White House, and they couldn't stir up enough support from their own people in the House.  SEVEN YEARS to put together a strategy, they waltzed in on a red carpet of support from the House through the Senate directly to 45's desk, and they couldn't get the votes from their own people! I hope Vlad kept his receipts, because he sure isn't getting his money's worth out of these assholes. 

We just have to keep on doing what we're doing. He must not be allowed to appoint a SC justice for a lifetime when the treason stench gets stronger and spreads wider every day. This is truly unprecedented, and we remain unpresidented.  We are still in danger, it will be crazy for a long time and nobody knows how it will end, but organized protests work.  Scaring the shit out of Congress (by showing up, expressing opinions, asking questions, and demanding that they do their jobs) is working. And remember, these are not brilliant strategists and organized evil. They are starting to turn on each other, and that's glorious!  They couldn't pass a health care bill with 8 years to prepare and while controlling both houses of Congress and the White House. Think about that, and raise a glass of wine to celebrate the incompetence of their evil.  Not that they won't keep chasing that dream, but today was a huge hit on their credibility and power.  Everything will be harder to do from now on.

I realized today that I need more time for knitting. I have two sweaters for myself I want to finish, not that I'll be wearing them until next Thanksgiving at the earliest. I have not been knitting enough. I think this weekend may be an ass-on-couch weekend.

Oh, it was glorious to watch! The resistance needed this victory, especially those of us in red states who's senators basically ignore any progressive opposition.

The resistance better not sit back on their butts. But yes, it was glorious. Watching Paul Ryan squirm was glorious. Listening to him admit that all the GOP had done for the last 8 years was say no, and that now they had to do something, they failed was wonderful.
