A Post-Election Message To Blue America Members By Digby: Orange Julius Caesar's Reign Is Over!


YR FIRED by Nancy Ohanian


The streets of every city and town in America erupted on Saturday morning when the networks (finally) announced that America had fired Donald Trump.

I think Senator Bernie Sanders said it best:
“To be honest with you, I haven’t been sleeping so well lately. I was very worried about four more years of Trump. It appears that that is not going to be the case, so I feel exhilarated. I feel relieved.”
Trump himself was at one of his personal golf properties grifting off the taxpayers as usual when the race was called. The Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was quarantined with COVID after having spent the week in the White House wantonly spreading his precious bodily aerosols all over the staff. His devoted henchman Rudy Giuliani was holding a press conference next door to a sex shop called Fantasy Island.

What a long, strange trip it's been. And it's not over yet, unfortunately.

The normal people immediately started celebrating, as one might expect. Cheers went up simultaneously all over the world. The 70 million Trumpers seemed to be momentarily stunned, as one might expect since they have been brainwashed by right wing media into believing it wasn't even possible. But there are a lot of them and I expect they will find their voices soon enough. And the silence of GOP officials in the wake of the results being announced says that Trump may have lost the election but he hasn't lost his hold on the GOP.

So far, Mitch "grim reaper" McConnell is keeping his powder dry. As of now he holds the Senate but the massive Georgia turnout (thanks Stacey Abrams!) has given Democrats one last chance to take his majority away from him.

Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will have another chance to remove the corrupt Trump bootlickers David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler from the US Senate in January. Neither one of those odious reprobates were able to get above 50% so there will be a runoff. And we all know the stakes could not be higher.

Goal ThermometerThese will be the most consequential Senate races in history. It is the difference between Democrats having control of the Senate agenda and Mitch McConnell successfully furthering the destruction of America, which seems to be his only goal in life. Any hope of passing the progressive legislation we desperately need to deal with the carnage left in Trump's wake will be thwarted by this misanthropic monster, if he is allowed to remain the Majority Leader.

So our work is not done. Blue America has set up an ActBlue donation page for the two challengers for one last campaign in this cycle-- if you would like to help secure a senate majority and a progressive agenda for the next two years. Having Biden and Harris in the White House will stop the bleeding but this country needs major surgery and we can't do it with the Grim Reaper standing in the way.

If you have any more to spare, we would encourage you to help Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win their runoffs in January. Just tap the thermometer on the right and give what you are able.

And take a moment to let relief and joy wash over you: our long national nightmare is over. Donald Trump has been defeated!

Thank you all so much for your generosity,

Digby, for the entire Blue America team

Ralph Warnock's presence would make the U.S. Senate a much better place

OH, I hadn't realized that all states had named electors and they'd already met and cast ballots and all lawsuits had already been dismissed.

Wow. that was fast!

It begins with "So our work is not done", which is VERY true, yet quickly morphs into "let relief and joy wash over you: our long national nightmare is over. Donald Trump has been defeated!"

The long national nightmare is just beginning. Repairing the damage Donald Trump did to the nation will be obstructed by the Nazis every step of the way. The courts are stuffed to the rafters with Federalist Society fascists who can remain in those positions for decades, and who were promoted for those positions in order to block any attempts to undo the gains taken by the corporatists.


I'm being asked to support a Party who not only ALLOWED this to happen, but at times ACTIVELY ASSISTED with this process of installing the corporatist regime now in place. Both "Parties" are completely OWNED by this corporatist regime.

After the greatest wealth transfer in the history of humanity (the "CARES" Act), with the coming depression just peeking over the threshold in the form of greater unemployment than is being admitted, with the pandemic raging unabated, and with millions about to be evicted from their homes because the government of Donald Trump abandoned them to their fate to save Wall Street with the total cooperation of the "opposition", I repeat what I've said before:


Thanks to the misfeasance and malfeasance of the "Democratic" Party, it's soon to be every man for himself. The Cavalry is not riding hard to our rescue. Yeshua the Nazarene is too busy being dead to show up, and there is no Deus ex Machina to descend from above and make everything good again.

As said by the town preacher to Sheriff Bart, "You're on your own".

Save your money. You'll need it - if it's still of any value in a few months.

a fine comment, 1:04.

another glaring sheepdog bark from herein:
"(The 2 GA senate runoffs) will be the most consequential Senate races in history. It is the difference between Democrats having control of the Senate agenda and Mitch McConnell successfully furthering the destruction of America"

since it only places the responsibility of the further destruction of the american middle in hands other than moscow's bitch, it is NOT consequential at all. I'm sure $cummer can and will serve the money quite ably. Can he 'splain the betrayal to his greenhouse? Moscow's bitch doesn't have to 'splain anything. $cummer SHALL have to.

In fact, if you dig down deep, I'd wager that biden and pelo$i and, most especially, $cummer will root for at least 1 nazi to win in GA. Otherwise, the democrap party will have to 'splain the un'splainable, namely why the fuck they can't and won't and never do anything useful no matter how many they have in the senate, to the vast greenhouse of idiot voting flora they need to remain relevant (as grifters being paid by corporate america).
Harriet Reid had to retire because he could not adequately 'splain to the morons why it was that his senate with 60 had to occasionally join the nazis to filibuster shit that everyone wanted and needed (health CARE).

Even a ficus wearing clothes will occasionally realize that it needs water and is not getting any.
