Anyway, we know who it is at the top Garland. Then it's a bunch of women I've never heard of. Two of them have strong civil rights backgrounds.

But no Irishmen.

I'm half offended. I'm sure there's a Norwegian in there somewhere, or just the Norwegians are too mellow to give a fuck.

He's turning out to be pretty ineffective so sure, I'd love for Republicans to be haunted by their past choices for the next few election cycles. It's either him or a smarter crypto-fascist.

We didn't think he could ever be elected in 2016. There will always be "crypto-fascists" hanging around, just as there are extremists on the left. A lot of the Republicans outed themselves yesterday by continuing the lies that the election was stolen. I just think we need to make sure Trump isn't able to foul the swimming pool again.

Given the economic and social trajectory many countries are heading on, I'm surprised there haven't been more far-right populists taking power across the West.
