I would say "Done in one." but Stacy Abrams deserves all of the praise she can get and then some.

I'd say put her on the FEC, but I don't know if the FEC will ever have any teeth.

Also, Georgia seems to be her mission. Unless the job is really farking great, I think she'll turn it down. Schumer asked her to run for Senate, and she said 'no'. She seems to be the rare politician who doesn't need to climb a ladder, but rather needs to accomplish the goals she is passionate about first before moving on.

She's pretty farking awesome.

To which I say, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You didn't have to, thank you for helping turn Georgia Blue.

And this is why the Republicans are trying so desperately to get all of Georgia's Democrat ballots thrown out. The fact black people helped vote out their god has infuriated them.

Now let's criticize their defund the police messaging, offer them nothing from Ice Cubes contract with Black America, and while we're at it, move further right because that's what we need to flip Texas blue.

Trump also made unfounded claims that Raffensberger "made a deal" to allow ballot harvesting and that he "read this morning where [former Georgia gubernatorial candidate] Stacey Abrams has 850,000 ballots accumulated."

At one point, Republicans were crowing about how Trump did better with minorities than any Republican since Nixon in '60.  The subsequent attempts to disparage urban voters as frauds and throw out their ballots have kind of put a crimp in that narrative.

She absolutely does, but come early January she along with every other Democrat organizer needs to do it again.

Imagine the giant middle finger to McConnell if he loses the Senate.  I'm honestly trying not to get my hopes up, but it's a tantalizing thought.

It really is incredible, the sewage flood of bullshiat the right is throwing around at the walls, all because their God-created avatar of Republicanism sent to Earth to enact the final solution to their enemies and lead them to a golden utopia lost an election after four years of farking up the United States. And because of fear or passion, they're going to crash this ship straight into the iceberg and drop into the abyss.

Joe Biden was the choice of the American people by a resounding margin.

His margin of victory, thanks to the slaver concession called the electoral college, was literally less than the presence of the Lolbertarian candidate.

If not for the votes siphoned from Dump in AZ, WI and GA, it would be tied at 269 each.

*shudder*

Don't let the mainstream fool you my friend, while Stacey is definitely the face the DNC has put on the movement, she is just a portion of those doing the legwork. We need to acknowledge all those putting in the efforts to get out the vote because the establishment is trying their damnedest to make this about individuals so they can ifnore the movement.

Young black people may have been "Go Bernie!" but that sentiment matters only during the primary, and we know how young people of all races feel about primaries.

You forget the Libertarians also siphoned votes from Joe as well. A lot of young naive leftist heard that Libertarians wanted to stop wars, open borders, legalize pot and end the surveillance state and voted for them. They didn't bother to find out they also wanted to end the 40 hr work week, the ACA, Medicaid, Medicare, OSHA....

Great. They did the mature, responsible thing for the country and buckled down and voted for the best candidate.

He better not go in like a lamb, and ignore their plight of low wages, no jobs, no health care, systemic abuse by police, a hostile racist country and letting trump administration criminals walk away Scott free.

If democrats don't go in like a lion, they will never be voted in again.

except young black voters seem to show up and vote and Bernie bros sit on their couch and not vote. that is why Bernie didn't win the primary. his supporters talk a good game on the internet from their couch but when physical activity is needed they wait for others to do it it for them. that was what I read from the primaries anyway.

I don't know, I'm not an expert on our government and what only two branches can/can't do. I do know I want Biden to go in and run rough shod all over the republicans and make them howl and scream. I want to hear "we can't go back to business as normal, after the last four years." I want to see trump and his ilk punished and any pardons he attempts to be swept away as the illegal actions of a criminal president.

Then I want to impose laws that actually make lives for the poor better. I want to see Fox News and the partisan news organizations dismantled by laws about reporting lies. I want to see Biden attempt to make the country better, not just bring us back to a barely operating status quo.

If McConnell gets in the way, he needs to be taken out. Period. Try to do it legally with investigations into who is compromised and clean the government from top to bottom.

First we have to get back to normal. Because trump has screwed up the government so badly, most of it needs to be rebuilt and while the cabinet is doing that he has people working on how to undo all the harm trump has done, some of it will be easy, other parts will be harder because it has to go through a process.

Biden also is assembling a team of experts to see what exactly he can do by executive order.

Also, remember right now the democrats only control 1.5 branches of government, without the senate they will be blocked from actually controlling 2 branches.

Yes we all want to see trump and his ilk get his comeuppance, but we need to make sure it's done right, because if we don't then the next time republicans get elected POTUS they can do the same thing. We need to reign back the power of the POTUS, before it becomes too powerful.
