So I guess the election has been resolved.

It's never been more important to build bridges. See what it's like beyond where you live. Build ties of commerce with people who see things differently. Hire people who challenge you. Read a book you disagree with.

I promise you, the real enemy is not thinking this way.

GOLDMAN SACHS: "The Biden administration plans to reverse at least some of the Trump administration’s environmental deregulation. ... At a macroeconomic level, the impact is likely to be modest."

I get the instinct to laugh at this, but the deeply emotional trauma this scam has wrought on family, friendships, and relationships for four years...and to land where those of us on this side knew we would: nowhere. It’s not satisfying; It’s infuriating.

A THREAD OF THANKS. On the last midnight of this kakistocracy, my heartfelt thanks to Never Trumpers. It takes integrity to go against your own side. Many of you lost friends and family to Trumpism, but that didn't stop you. You spoke out. You showed up. 1/5

A fellow conservative friend once (politely) asked me why I couldn’t shut up. It was because I felt people needed to see they had a choice. You could be a conservative and find Trump completely unacceptable, and refuse to make excuses for him.

Not only is Biden a hologram, Trump was a clone the whole time. Happy inauguration

The United States now has a Catholic President, a Catholic Speaker of the House, and a Catholic Chief Justice.

Sohrab ought to be thrilled!

Replacing Donald Trump with Joe Biden is like replacing a Rock Star with a Pet Rock.

I’m just happy my new pet rock isn’t going to trash the place.

That was nice. I didn't vote for the guy, and I'm sure I will find a thousand things for which to oppose him. But I am grateful for a president who speaks like, and comes across as, a normal human being. It's been a while.

Hopefully now when I read Deadline or the Hollywood Reporter, I won't see any political crap. That would be nice.

My kid thought that “swearing in” meant Joe Biden was going to stand at a podium on Wednesday and reel off all the curse words he knows. He’s understandably a little disappointed now.

Amid people (or at least accounts) being flushed from Twitter for being total cesspits, I just want to thank the vast majority of my followers for being a source of intelligent interaction, challenging ideas, good humor, and - at times - unexpected wonder. You're good folks.
