Bad news for Democrats

It's always nice to remind Democrats they failed at a major mission this year - winning state legislature races. 
This year, Democrats targeted a dozen state legislative chambers where Republicans held tenuous majorities, including in Pennsylvania, Texas, Arizona, North Carolina and Minnesota. Their goal was to check the power of Republicans to redraw congressional and legislative districts in 2021, and to curb the rightward drift of policies from abortion to gun safety to voting rights. 
In all cases, Democrats came up short. None of their targeted legislative chambers flipped, even though Biden carried many of the districts that down-ballot Democrats did not. It could make it harder for Democrats to retain a House majority in 2022.
Now, it's two years until Demcrats get neutered.

Ain't that a kick in the head?

Jason Whitlock wasn't impressed with the pooch kick heralded by ESPN as an historic milestone.
Sarah Fuller received a standing ovation for kicking the ball 30 yards or so and high-tailing it to the sidelines to be greeted by the winless head coach using her to save his job.
This wasn’t Jackie Robinson 2.0. It was Make A Wish.

Saturday song

A free weekend of SiriusXM gives you a chance to hear long lost songs, like this one from LeBlanc and Carr.

Release the Kraken

Looks like noon Thursday is the time. 
You want proof? 
You can't handle the proof.
Looks like they are going to get it.

The big question for Biden

Joe Biden - there's 70 million Americans who think you're an incompetent old fool with crazy friends.
How to do unify us?

Stick together with your friends

Legal Insurrection made its blog debut in October 2008, two weeks before I started. 
He remembers the rough days of 2009 and offers hope
Yet this is not 2008. One of the benefits of having been at this at Legal Insurrection since October 12, 2008, is that we’ve been through several cycles. Unlike Obama’s victory in 2008, we are starting out in a much better position in the House, and in state legislatures and statehouses that will influence redistricting. The massive red wave of 2010 could be replicated in 2022. The Senate will depend on the two Georgia runoffs on January 5, 2021 — if Republicans win at least one of them, the Senate is secure at least as a blocking mechanism against leftism. There are risks of defections and wobbliness, but no one knows how to use a slim majority to advantage as much as Mitch McConnell.

No shame

The left has moved onto wanting to shame President Trump. 
Don't they realize that doesn't work? 
Ask Bill and Hillary.

60 days until Cocaine Mitchmas

It looks like control of the Senate will boil down to the two Senate runoff elections in Georgia Jan. 5.
Democrats may think they have an advantage, but they forget their liabilities.
By then, at least some of Biden's Cabinet picks will be known.
Who's going to be Energy Secretary?
After spending the campaign offering platitudes and no specifics, his direction will begin coming into focus...
Instead of anti-Trump thoughts motivating Democrats, they'll have to join candidates with ideas that may not follow the electorate.
Plus, there's history.
In 1992, after George W. Bush lost, Republicans won a runoff for Georgia's Senate seat. That started the momentum to winning the House and Senate in 1994.
I'm sure McConnell remembers.

So much for privacy

The best story of the day - Democratic House members blistering each other in their private call.
Which was immediately leaked to reporters.
They are through in '22.
