-> A vision at noon of what is happening in politics and how to have a sense of humor about it. *

* Say ah. Haha. Ha ha. Smell. Haha. Smell. Ha – breaks down in tears hysterically.


Another House Democrat is resigning:

Rep. Jackie SpeierKaren (Jackie) Lorraine Jacqueline SpeierHouse ethics wars redux? Gosar Faces Increasing Chances of Censorship on Cheney House Floor, Kinzinger Sign That Would Support Gosar Censorship MORE (D-Calif.) He announced this morning that he will not seek reelection for an eighth term in Congress next year. https://bit.ly/3CsQH20

Was he expected to have a tough re-election battle?: No, he won in 2020 by a margin of 60 points.

Your reasoning: “It’s time for me to go home. It’s time for me to be more than just a wife, mother and weekend friend. ”

Why the Democrats are sweating a littleSpeier is the ninth House Democrat to announce that they will not run for reelection in 2022. Republicans need to win just five seats to regain control of the House.

Americans generally support Roe v. Wade:

Via The Hill’s John kruzel, “Americans by a margin of about two to one say the Supreme Court should uphold Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion and which faces a direct challenge in this judicial period, according to a poll released Tuesday” . https://bit.ly/3DyySQ4

Survey numbers: “Among those surveyed, 60 percent said the judges should defend Roe, compared to 27 percent who said the court should vacate him and 12 percent who did not express an opinion.”

Most do not support the Texas abortion law either.: “Nearly 2 in 3, 65 percent, said the court should reject a Texas law that prohibits abortion after six weeks of pregnancy and authorizes private citizens to enforce the restriction.”

Who conducted the survey: The Washington Post and ABC News

Signed sealed delivered:

President BidenJoe Biden Biden Reaffirms His Commitment To Taiwan’s ‘One China’ Policy In Call With Xi Biden Raises Human Rights With China’s Xi During Four-Hour Biden Meeting, Xi Holds ‘Candid’ Discussion Amid Highs tensions MOREdesperately in need of a political victory after a tumultuous few months, yesterday signed the $ 1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill in front of the White House.

Please ignore the fire in the dumpster on the right. Keep your attention here: “Biden used the bill’s signature to highlight a rare example of bipartisanship at a polarized time in American politics, even as President TrumpDonald Trump House Freedom Caucus Elects Rep. Scott Perry as New President Meadows ‘Between a Rock and a Hard Place’ with Trump, Jan. 6 Panel On The Money – Biden Closes Infrastructure Week MORE and other conservatives suggested that House Republicans who voted for the bill should be challenged in primaries or stripped of committee assignments. ”

Nothing like a deadline before vacation break to get your blood pumping:

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced that it intends to release its final score on the $ 1.75 trillion social spending bill on Friday. https://bit.ly/3HsjKGw

Because that’s great: Centrist House Democrats have said they want to see CBO analysis before voting on the bill. This means that voting could take place before Thanksgiving break.

What centrist Democrats want to see from CBO: That the bill will not add to the federal deficit.

The bill is in the House. I repeat, ~ the bill ~ is in the House:

CNN Manu raju tweeted: “I asked Manchin what [West Virginia] voters are telling you about the $ 1.75 trillion bill after a week back home. He says his voters are “very concerned.” Inflation has hit them extremely hard. … I hear it when I go to the grocery store … They tell me ‘are you as angry as I am?’ And I say ‘Absolutely’. ” https://bit.ly/2YRNOdf

Raju added: “Manchin has not yet purchased [the] argument [that the] bill would help with inflation. When asked if voters want them to wait until the bill passes, he said: ‘They don’t really get involved.’ He says voters are now recognizing that the two bills (infra, BBB) are different. ‘So let’s see what happens.’ ” https://bit.ly/3wOmSaQ

While I love Samin Nosrat, I do not fully agree with this premise:

Chef Samin nosrat writes in The New York Times, “How to Make Your Thanksgiving Dinner Less Boring.” https://nyti.ms/3qEve3P

While I think Thanksgiving dinner is already perfect in every way, these photos look amazing: https://nyti.ms/3qEve3P

A Vermont woman ran 95 marathons in 95 days. https://cnn.it/30sK3v8

Wow!: “In fact, he even managed to move on during an international move from Italy to Florida. He ran a marathon at one in the morning during a layover at a German military base. ”

Why it stopped on day 95: yes I laughed even writing that: “On his 96th day, Clark was unable to finish the race after experiencing chest pain. Later, she and her husband tested positive for Covid. ”
