While the President recently signed an executive order that would make it easier for career federal employees to be dismissed from their jobs, it's unclear whether the new measure would include Fauci.

Under federal law, Trump doesn't have the power to directly fire Fauci, a career civil servant, and remove him from government. He could try ordering his political appointees to dismiss him, but it would be a time-consuming process that Fauci could appeal.

It’s horsefeathering wild to me to that during my childhood, the only Indian in popular culture or the national spotlight was a cartoon character who was stereotypical convenience store clerk voiced by a white guy... And 20 years later, we’re going to have a half-Indian VP whose grandparents are from the same Indian suburb as my grandma.

My son was so excited at the DNC because he thought Kamala was talking about his own aunt when she used the Tamilian word for aunt.

Does this mean that Jim Carrey is replacing Alec Baldwin on SNL?

He looked and sounded pretty good. He also struck a conciliatory tone toward the right.

But it is truly my hope and dream that when it comes to working with the McConnell's of the world, he rightly tells them to "horsefeathers off".

Leadership, especially the presidential kind, horsefeathering matters. Enough with the cynicism of "LOL, it doesn't matter." You weren't moved by what we just saw in Delaware only if you have no black/brown/queer/trans/disabled people in your lives. If you are smirking at this, examine your white privilege.

Any way they can just try and sneak a Feinstein replacement in there while they’re at it and hope nobody notices?

If I'm a Republican strategist and I'm gearing up for 2022 or 2024, I don't feel too bad. It's not great that Georgia and North Carolina are now swing states, but so is Wisconsin. Ohio and Florida look safe red. The Southwest is still salvageable.

The 2024 map is more wide open than it's been in a long time.


The disease of exclusion and hate didn't get weaker, it just needs a new host. Make Abrams head of the DNC and evaluate what worked and what didn't and get a better grasp of the numbers game.

As NSBB’s chief Biden hater, I’d like to share in the excitement.

Yay President Elect Biden! Bridge us to Harris, sir.
