I would not be surprised if we see Biden put together a commission to look at the vote counting/certification process and for some rules to be encoded into law

That woman on the far left is the next Kailey McEnany (sp?) She was on Real Time with Bill Maher last week and she is well trained in spouting 100% verifiable horse plop with a big smile.

Despite not knowing how to create a thread, Michael Gerson wins the internet today.

It's worth reading his thoughts on the GOP today.

Check out this stone cold horsefeathering embarrassment that Jake Tapper wrote back in 2003:

https://www.salon.com/2003/02/01/purple_raines/

From the corner boomed the voice of literary editor L.W. Cool-L, former mix-master of J.W.A., his lovely young bride on his lap, a draft of "Kaddish II: This Time It's Personal" by his side.

"How you wanna carry it, nomsayin'?" he asked. "I mean, what's with these homies dissin' my Perle? Why do the Old Gray Lady gotta front?"

"Bee-hatch," sneered Snoop-Kitty.

From the doorway strode the impressive silhouette of senior editor Li'l Cottle in full bling-bling.

"What up, shortie?" asked Snoop-Kitty, her beehatch.

But Li'l Cottle was serious serious. "Bust an Op-Ed in its ass, yo."

A few hundy miles north, on 43rd Street, New York Times executive editor Purple Raines was rappin' with Collinsio, editor of the editorial page.

"How do you spell 'Hans Blix'?" a copy editor inquired of Raines.

"H to the izz-O," Raines began. But before he could finish, managing editor Gerald Boyeeeeeed ran breathlessly to his side, memos a-flyin' from his pockets.

"Holla at me," Raines instructed.

Lol, a response to that reminds me of a college art teacher I had who earned a doctorate in art history. If we called him Mr. He'd stop everything and yell at the student saying "I did not go to school for 8 years to be called Mr.!!"

He was a piece of horsefeathers, but that seems like an apt response to such a condecending article.

What a bizarre story. The fact that she wants to tell it publically is even more bat horsefeathers.

Chuck Todd gets deserved heat for his ineptitude-for-the-moment, but Dana Bash has been, even among a roster of horsefeathers that Zucker has composed at CNN, consistently terrible in her own right.
