Someone asked how do I feel? I'm reminded for some reason of Churchill's 1941 Christmas message:
"Let [us] have [our] night of fun and laughter. Let us share to the full in unstinted pleasures before we turn again to the stern task and the formidable years that lie before us."
"@laurawbush and I were honored to return to the Capitol today for the swearing-in of @POTUS and @VP. This was the 8th inauguration I’ve had the privilege of attending, and it was an equally beautiful spectacle of democracy.” – President George W. Bush
.@GOPLeader McCarthy congratulates Biden and Harris, says he's proud of them.
No acknowledgement that he pushed the Big Lie they didn't win, joined that mendacious TX AG lawsuit, voted to disenfranchise AZ and PA voters based on lies AFTER the terrorist siege.
Again: a simple apology, an admission of wrongdoing, would go a long way toward moving this country forward. Without any hint of repentance, McCarthy's yuck-it-up routine is indecent and offensive.
If Trump had really wanted to stick it to everyone, he would have forced even the journos who hate him to treat him with respect by observing all the rituals of exiting office. I am really glad he didn’t. Even at the end, there is no denying who he is.
Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris whose swearing in today marks the end of a harrowing chapter in our history and hopefully also the start of a shared renewal. Thank you for endeavoring to bridge our divides. May we all be partners in that cause. 🇺🇸

3/ Trump’s cruelty, division, insurrection, treason and corruption are unrivaled in history. He is the nadir of presidential leadership.
He was enabled by the weak, the venal, the desperate, and the compromised. It was empowered by voices normalizing and rationalizing his evils.
2/ His incompetence, malfeasance, and evil shouldn’t be laughed off as narcissism or ignorance. He was surrounded by corrupt, wicked, cruel counselors and reveled in it.
Emerson once said of Lincoln’s presidency “an institution is the lengthened shadow of a man.”
He was right.
We are joining 16 other voting rights and civil rights orgs in calling for the resignation of Gwinnett County elections chair Alice O'Lenick after she threatened state lawmakers and demanded they make voting more difficult in Georgia to help Republicans win. #AliceMustGo #gapol
Lincoln Voters, we need at least 5000 people to respond to this tweet with #AliceMustGo.
Let's send a message that partisan politics have no place when it comes to our right to vote.
#DumpTrumpism! The sooner, the easier and better!
