will utah republicans call on romney to resign?

or will they begin a recall drive?

“Mitt Romney was the only Republican senator who voted guilty last week on one of the impeachment counts brought against President Trump by House Democrats. Many Republicans were furious at Romney, and a sizable number of GOP voters are ready to throw him out of the party,” writes Rasmussen.

does anyine work the daily jumble?

today's answer dealt with presidential pets. the first cats to live in the white house were tabby and dixie. their human said "dixie is smarter than my whole cabinet."

who was he?

bonus. those were not actually the first cats to live in the white house. which president was really the first to have felines in the white house?

iowa caucus

probably too late for 2020, but by 2024 can we please replace the caucuses with primaries.

this is an anachronism that does not seem effective in the 21st century.

i'm not buying any conspiracy theories about why the software did not work properly. the system was probably tested without the hundreds of calls that hit last night and experienced an overload.

but, between the aca roll out software, the e mail hacks, and now this, how can the voters have confidence that we can govern in a digital world.

bloomberg : 2004 republican national convention


mostly "new York is back from 9/11" and local boosterism.

Bloomberg : 2016 democratic national convention

a little trump bashing and a lot of bipartisanship.

checks and balances

congress can no longer exercise any kind of oversight. only one control remains on the president.

we might have to shut down agencies that do not comply with subpoenas. no funding until they provide witnesses and documents.

i'd start by auditing the president's, and his family's, travel expenses.

like it or not we may be stuck with this guy for another term, and it is long past time to bring him to heel.
