Remains of the Day (01/28)

Michael Musto: So powerful in 'Sounder,' so brilliant as Miss Jane Pittman, so astounding in Broadway’s 'Trip To Bountiful' revival. (Her explosive performance of a woman emotionally retracing her roots nabbed one of the most deserved Tonys of all time.) RIP, Cicely Tyson. 

Martina Navratilova: That’s funny! And Chris got to the net first, what is up with that?!?:) 

Rep. Jimmy Gomez will introduce a resolution to expel Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Congress. Read HERE.

I'm sure you don't need to hear it from me, but everyone knows Trump incited an insurrection -- as well as schemed to use the Justice Department to overturn the election -- yet three weeks later Republicans are already back to acting as if nothing happened. It's like the 'Access Hollywood' tape with casualties -- and can only be compared with Jim Jones or Charles Manson

Senate Democrats and White House fast track Covid relief bill, frustrating Republicans (who are pretending they wanted to work together)

Sergio Arellano, a Pima County small business owner who lost to Ward by 42 votes, requested a recount of all state party races on Monday. More than two days later, he said, Arizona state party leaders -- who report to Ward -- have not yet scheduled the audit.

And somehow people still continue to 'both sides' the political parties in the U.S. 

Many Americans losing their insurance now have never used the marketplace or Medicaid -- and may need advertising to tell them more about the opportunity

This is 100% true, but what I don't get is why leaders of the GOP remain loyal. Yes, Trump has a unique ability to increase turnout. But as we have learned, it's not enough voters to win elections -- in fact, for every person he excites he is turning off one or two more. Why would a party remain loyal to a man who has cost it the House, Senate and the presidency?

After DT threatened to create the patriot party they(Rep) realized that the Democratic Party might be able to create super majorities in both houses, and put them in an even worse position than they are currently in. This is all an attempt to keep trump voters registered Republican.
