Susan Collins’s Concerns   Recently updated !

Whining about protesters is all the rage this week among those who don’t want to mention the impending overturning of Roe v. Wade. Claiming these spontaneous, harmless protests are “protoviolence” and beyond the scope of the First Amendment is the first step to normalize the looming crackdowns when the (illegitimate) SCOTUS opinion officially comes down.

I don’t really want Maine to return to Massachusetts, but a lot of states should be consolidated, especially the prairie states which produce nothing more than senators, grain and natural gas.

2022 Valentines

This marks twenty years of me making fake Valentine’s cards for cartoons. I might’ve missed several years when I was on the NYT grind, so don’t quote me on that.

I had a cold this week that was surprisingly not COVID. While I don’t recommend getting sick, any excuse to avoid following the news makes for a better week.

Coupversary Gifts

While obviously not the worst thing about 2021 by far, “Choo-choo” the Herky Jerky Dancer from Mr. Show participating in Trump’s coup attempt really sums up the year that would follow. Seemingly normal Americans hellbent on making the most destructive and selfish choices that made all our lives worse.

See you in 2022 for more of the same.

Joe Manchin’s Imaginary Friends

It’s pretty neat that the next election will be stolen because of these two refusing to end the filibuster. (And John Roberts for gutting the Voting Rights Act in the first place.) Democracy was fun for the few decades we had it.

Republican Couphemisms

The riot/insurrection/coup by the MAGA mob was very bad, but what was even worse are the members of Congress who voted to throw out the election results to pander to that mob.

They must be expelled or we’re in for four years of escalations and mob violence. Sorry to put a downer on any virtual Inauguration parties you’re planning next week.
