    I care less about the speeches than whether Mitch told the yahoo’s to cut out the objections and get this done. He alluded to it but didn’t speak with specifics.

    Better late than never, but McConnell is nearly as to blame for this whole shitshow.

    He should be. He enabled this. He better be angry.

    I guess Mitch didn’t tell Lankford to shut his trap.

    Some rightwingers are still pushing it ...

    OAN figures say Capitol riots are perfect justification for Pence to overturn election

    Actually, the US Capitol Police are under congressional control, not the president. But yes, they are not DC Metro.

    Did Sen. Lankford just tell Pence that the Republican Senators are going to stand down their stupid-arse objections??

    There wasn't a conservative among that bunch of idiots at the capital today.

    Collective apathy, lack of vigilence, failure of the imagination, call it whatever you want to. It's kinda like 9/11 on a smaller scale. Why weren't the planes intercepted and shot down? It had to happen before anyone would believe it could happen. But now that it has, something has been lost forever. Security will tighten immensely around the Capitol, and the distance between the people and their elected representatives will grow ever greater.

    He just whined about not getting a commission and then stood down. He dressed it up, but real grace would have just stood down.

    Now a Dem is arguing the other side. Can’t they all just stop and move on and certify the damn thing.

    Attempt to ignore liberal hypocrisy on riots is duly noted.

    Maybe some apathy, but I tend to think it's more toward a failure of imagination, ntm a failure to step up based on what was occurring.

    Like a parent getting mad at a kid who went out of town and condoned their kid having a party. McConnell owns this treason too.

    I do hope long term that today serves as a heat check on all the congressional members, I think things will tamp down for a while. Might even see some bipartisan legislation to send a message.

    It wasn't about a Presidential election and the transition of power which is what I commented on.

    But I also love the fact the Schumer and McConnell said they are getting this done tonight. They aren’t even letting the thugs win for a day.
