I feel like if a Democrat did whatever it is that Matt Gaertz is precisely being accused of having done (still not sure what that is), that the New York Times would choose to characterize it as something other than "sex trafficking".

If Matt Gaetz forgot to sign a credit card slip at a diner, the New York Times would accuse him of "working to bankrupt the hospitality sector".

I'm going to kind of almost defend Cruz on this one. He should not be going on a family vacation to Cancun because of COVID. That said, however, they obviously planned the vacation before the polar vortex visited Texas. It looks bad to be vacationing while his constituents are suffering but there is damn little Cruz can do to help no matter where he is.

So glad I never voted for this imbecile.

A ceremony got interrupted for a few hours, while some demonstrators (most of whom were under the vague misimpression they were allowed to be there) sorta wandered aimlessly around the Capitol, generally remaining behind the velvet red ropes as they did so.

The guy who beat that one cop to death, should be executed, and I would pull the switch myself, if called upon to do so.

But this was no "insurrection".

A drumroll presaging Prime Minister Pashinyan's departure has only grown louder since Armenia's perceived defeat in that last umpteenth Nagorno-Karabakh war begun on September 27, 2020.

Chomping at the bait offered by an enemy 3x stronger was a fool's gambit. A simple reading of Armenia's (astonishingly flavorful and delicate) tea leaves would have foretold to even the softest head a dreary outcome.

But everyone's blood was up - and it's still stirring. A head now has to roll.

The Armenian Apostolic Church, an astonishing 16 political parties, even elements of Pashinyan's own armed forces, now unite as one voice demanding Pashinyan's skin. So, sheepishly, Pashinyan gave a bit off his nose yesterday, suggesting new elections [Link]

If Pashinyan were to bother to take a glance again at those tea leaves, he'd see that resigning now would save he and his party humiliation at the polls later.

Maryland Republican: Absolutely agree. After all the money Schumer and National Democrats threw at her and assuming this is her last term, I think we see much less moderation.

Totally disagree. She risked a primary challenge in 2014, in the midst of the tea party movement, and voted consistently in the center. Susan Collins is a centrist to her bones. She isn't going to become Kelly Loeffler now that she is in her last term.

Pretty sure his comments last night about ending subsidies for the oil industry are going to hurt him down the stretch. This seems to be the one unforced error he made last night that is resonating.

How much and where it hurts him is yet to be seen.

Conservative twitter has latched on to them and media is openly opining the impact.

Although Democrats are dominating in mail voting, as expected, it seems like generally Republicans are voting early in-person in good numbers. There are a couple places where the GOP / Trump campaign should be worried, though. In North Carolina, the GOP is getting swamped by Democrats in mail and early voting. Second is Texas and especially Harris County. Texas has had an extra week of early voting, but according to the Election Project they are #1 in turnout so far relative to 2016 turnout. Low Democratic participation has been an important part of the GOP's dominance there, so anything that upsets the status quo is dangerous for the GOP.

RP: Yeah - don't put too much stock in early turnout numbers. Early turnout for Democrats was very good in 2016 as well.

It isn't so much how many people have voted that I look at but the percent who have returned their mail ballots between Democrats and Republicans. In every state with party registration, Democrats are returning their ballots at a higher rate. If Republicans don't catch up, we'll see alot of tight races swing toward Democrats.

Great debate so far. We deserved this in the Presidential debate. Cant help but think a lot of Dems and Reps would like to see these two at the top of the ticket over who sits there now.

As if on cue, Putin's ready to step in "The leaders of the countries reaffirmed the agreement that in case of an aggravation of situation in terms of external threats, the parties will react jointly in accordance with the provisions stipulated by the Collective Security Treaty." [Link] Lavrentiy Beria couldn't have planned this better.

And all it took was a distended defenseless mass with full throats to scare Lukashenko back into Mother Russia's kreml.

Maneuvring worthy of a John le Carré novel.

146 seats (150+ seats with allies). More than enough. A buffet of enhanced power lies ahead, all you can eat. With a two-thirds majority in parliament, all dreams come true for the megalomaniacal; remove provisions of the constitution, especially the 19th with its darn term limits; plunk all your friends and family, mostly family, in front of all levers of power.

Rename the capital after yourself, Kazakhstan-style. Why not? What's stopping you?

78 year-old Ouattara's entry should surprise no one. He goes to the trouble of changing the constitution, allowing himself a run for a third time, then under pressure and Hamlet-like, forgoes this chance? In a region where 20-year, 30-year, lifetime terms for presidents are the rule, Outtara self-dispatching in a mere 10 years would be, well, a national humiliation.

The man to watch is ex-president and competitor Henri Konan Bédié, now in his 86th year. Konan Bédié has far more talent and energy than all the declared presidential candidates combined. He deserves to jaunt the halls of the presidential palace again for as many terms as Outtara's new constitution allows.

Ask about a sixth term for the current Prezident Respubliki Bielaruś, and the answer will be as Sidney Falco famously said in the Sweet Smell of Success: The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river.

But there's enough trouble bubbling in the Belarus tea kettle to make the next round much more interesting.

The unexpected public pursuit of novice Tikhanoskaya's lure has many even in the local press asking: Is there enough crocodilian charm left in Lukashenko to see him through to a seventh term?

If not, if Lukashenko's backstreet boys begin to lose faith because their bread and butter is losing his grip, then you should ask about the next logical step: Will Moscow's hunger for the old Byelorussia extinguish a post-Lukashenko Orange Revolution, à la Crimea?

Best opportunity the Albanian minority has to pound a bigger foot-mark on North Macedonia. The Albanian parties will enjoy their play as kingmakers.

Zaev has Kasami on his side. Would Ahmeti, or even Sela and Thaçi, join Mickoski if the price was right? (i.e., an Albanian ethnic Prime Minister?).

I don't see them uniting under one Albanian candidate free of a VMRO or SDSM embrace. They don't have the seats, and worse, they have too many alpha-male personalities (some who hate each other).

Zaev has had corruption issues up to his gills, and in spite of his best efforts, he cannot seem to keep the trireme of the Macedonian state in ship-shape order.

More of issue now (the reason a snap election was called in the first place) is the shock North Macedonia felt when the European Union twisted a kopis in its back late in October 2019 by breaking its promise to open EU membership talks if Macedonia agreed to make a deal with Greece and change its name.

Zaev et companie will be lucky to squeak through intact, in one piece, and still in power after tomorrow.

A Zhirinovsky accolade gets clamped quite ungracefully. And though he'll be sorely missed by his pet rat, he humiliated a Putin puppet in an election in 2018 and took Khabarovsk in a landslide.

Curious. In a land infamous for its cabals, elaborate frame-ups and star chambers, does anyone else here also smell a rat?
