Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Hillary. Blew the unloseable election.
Biden. It should never have been this close.
AND HE LOST THE FRICKIN SENATE!

Somebody tell me I'm wrong : the Dems are likely to lose the House too?
Certainly they lose a dozen seats, perhaps more.

I think the networks have all already called the House for the Dems?

Agreed. Sending some fu**ing elderly idiots back to Washington to the Trump swamp is frustrating.

With a great turnout, how in the name of the Almighty did all those White guys vote for this gangster and mob boss.

Biden  69,241,130 (50.2%)
Trump. 68,412,727 (48,2%)

... and still counting.

This white/white-supremacy dysfunction goes back a long time. White America has not voted for a Democratic president since at least JFK. Bill Clinton came within 1% point.

Now that we've had a few minutes to contemplate that Susan Collins remains a Senator, that's enough to tell us Schumer's time is up. How does one continually lose elections which can't be lost?

i've been in Yurp for two decades, but i spent more than two decades in California. Dianne PGE Feinstein should have been toast before i left, and i've been lucky enough to have had enough private time with her to tell her just that... several times.

Though i've spoken to Pelosi personally less often, every discussion was high quality. And her triangulation of impeachment probably was the right choice, though i would have pressed for a broader and deeper indictment. But now it's her time to go.

I would also like to take a moment to say a heartfelt fuckyoutoo to Beto O'Rourke. He didn't have close to the experience to run for Preznit, he should have spent two years preparing to beat Cornyn. But no, ego takes charge, i can be president on charisma alone. No you can't. Had he run for Senate, Texas would be Blue... (possibly, na, probably).
