To be fair, in terms of "the pandemic comes first, how can he make his mark if that takes up his grace period"...  if the country is able to turn the corner on the pandemic and get headed back toward normal by mid-2021, that would be a huge plus for Biden politically.

Oh for sure, but just the fact they were so dumbfounded at actually winning an election that they didn't prepare to win.

Despite how limp and tepid alot of media was towards the oranges fools actions over the last 4 years at least there was msm calling him out. Meanwhile jump over to the Atlantic and pretty much no blame is being put at the feet of those that lied about Brexit or what the conservatives really stand for.

Post-Trump GOP really internalizing the lessons of 2020 by choosing to reduce the pool of voters as opposed to...appealing to them?

Turns out that the Republican platform of "White Supremacy" has much more limited curbside appeal than you might think.  And it's not exactly a position you can back away from without losing what remains of your base.

Unfortunately, with how many state legislatures they have, and how many seats on the federal judiciary they filled over the last 4 years, that might still be and effective strategy for them.

If this and the past few years lay anything to rest, hopefully it's the notion that the U.S. government is this marvel of amazing checks and balances and works amazing...aka what U.S. kid are taught in school.

If the SNP win a majority there again they plan to hold a second referendum, which doesnt really mean a huge lot right away since theres no legal way to leave the union without the British government agreeing to it first. That said should they leave it will mean England will forever be a conservative hellhole since Labour would never be able to gain enough seats to win.

Yeah, civics education is anywhere from non-existent to basically propaganda around here.

This may just be my ignorance about the politics there but I could see that being different were Labour to actually start actually giving a crapabout...........labor lol, along with the country getting more of a mouthful of how modern English conservatives like BoJo run things.

That would be great but unfortunately the Labour leadership has decided it would rather be centrist party offering only the most lukewarm of criticisms towards the Conservatives so the UK can finish its transition into a managed democracy.

Yeah, from the outside looking in that's been my assessment of Starmer as well.  Sounds like things have to unfortunately get worse before they can get better again.....

 

The Dems won those 2 senate seats in Georgia partially off the back of the pitch for those relief checks, coming off as nickel and diming is a good way to lose that slim majority and the ability to get anything done.

In far more comical news Wallstreetbets picked a fight with a hedge fund and is winning somehow, to the point that the NASDAQ is threatening to close trading on it after the hedge fund lost billions.

As it turns out anyone can manipulate the market. Although to be fair it is kinda just a weird pyramid scheme at this point.
