The migration is continuing to unfold:

Now the cartoons via Cagle:
And with that…have a brilliant day…this is an open thread.
That map showing blue and red areas according to population shows a realistic perspective of US voters’ politics. I wish the media would use graphics like this which show the proportion of red and blue.
Now if only we had Senate representation according to a state’s population….
Where did you get that map JJ? I would really like to have one for reference.
This is on point…
Read the whole thread.
I though Griffin’s tweet was idiotic. It was insulting and callous toward People living in Georgia. Of course Democrats need and want Georgia. Besides that, Georgia’s residents, especially POC, need Democrats in government instead of rich leeching Republicans.
However, Griffin did not say “it would be fine for Black Georgians and other Black folk impacted by the SENATE that it would be just fine if Herschel Walker, hand-picked stereotype, represented the state and its people.” Saying that Griffin did say that undercuts Clifton’s argument — if Clifton said one untrue thing, maybe we should question other things he says. Critiquing Clifton’s debating style doesn’t contradict my opinion that Griffin’s statement was thoughtless and callous.
Griffin actually is a good guy, but it was still wrong. It makes a big difference if Democrats have 51 seats. For one thing, it will make Sinema irrelevant. It will also affect committees.
Democrats still need Georgia because Raphael Warnock is a proven and dedicated public servant.
Absolutely. And can you imagine Walker speaking in the Senate? What an embarrassment that would be!
They need Warnock because (trying not to shout…, trying…, trying…) elections should find the BETTER candidate. This choice approaches the Dump vs Hillary Clinton levels of “Whaaaaat?”
Great post JJ. So much good stuff. The guinea pig getting an ultrasound is adorable, but my favorite is the what it’s like to be a woman video.
Elon Musk mocked Senator Ed Markey today after Markey asked for an explanation of why someone was able to post a fake account under his name.
Musk responded, “Perhaps it’s because your real account sounds like a parody?
Markey pointed out that Musk is already being investigated by 2 federal agencies. Markey sits on all the relevant committees.
Muskatoon probably figures he’ll just buy the US government if they annoy him. I mean, it worked so well with Twitter, what could possibly go wrong?
Democrat Andrea Salinas has defeated Mike Erickson in Oregon’s 6th House district.
The Democrats have won in Arizona and Nevada, clinching control of the Senate.
I am so glad I missed this
Great! (And a relief!)
