In light of the news that Senate Democrats won't get rid of the filibuster right away, you may want to call your Senators and tell them how you feel about that. Leave it to Mob Boss Mitch himself to accidentally tell us why we should get rid of the filibuster, in saying that getting rid of it would "destroy() the Senate as we know it" and turn it into a "scorched-earth Senate." You mean a "scorched-earth Senate" like the ones we had from 2008 to 2020, where no policy initiative that smelled of liberal cooties could pass because Mitch McConnell and Republicans would either filibuster it or refuse to give it a hearing? That sounds like a "Senate as we know it" we must "destroy." Yes, we could keep the filibuster if we made Senators actually speak until they're blue in the face, like we did in the old days. But I've said that a hundred times if I've said it once, and like most Americans, I'm so, so done with politicians who don't listen.
While you've got your Senators on the phone, tell them to convict Donald Trump of our House's impeachment charge and ban him from ever running for office in America again. The trial doesn't start for another week and a half or so, but it's never too early, and for once we've seen all the evidence of our President's criminal behavior we need to see on TV! Many Trumpholes will tell you that the attempted coup of January 6 "wasn't such a big deal," but just because this particular group of seditionists bollocksed it up so badly (taking selfies, posting to social media, etc.), that doesn't mean the next group of seditionists won't do a whole lot better, and frankly we've got to strangle this particular baby in its crib before it grows into an obese, rage-filled manchild. Some of the folks voting on this matter probably remember that fairly acutely -- or would, if they weren't so terrified of a primary challenge. Well, no one said being a Senator was easy. I mean, leadership roles never are, nor should be.
Finally, the Daily Kos Liberation League helps you tell a bunch of corporations to stop advertising with Fox News already. Fox News's decades-long trail of slime surely requires no summary, but certainly their recent actions -- advertising stupid "election fraud" theories, claiming that the January 6 attempted coup was somehow the work of antifa and not the right-wingers everyone could see doing it -- should spur big corporations to fear the Big Stick of Bad PR, as wielded by their customers. No, big corporations shouldn't "reach out" to the Fox News audience. The name of the game now isn't "reaching out" to right-wingers; the name of the game now is isolating them, until they finally feel the shame they've so richly earned. Then we can be all Parable of the Prodigal Son with them. Until then? Not so much as a Subaru ad on Fox News.
