It seems that even many republican senators now finally seems to realize that it's time to accept that it's over, except Moscow Mitch.....
Its just a pity that they didn't speak up earlier though.
I think Mitch knows and actually secretly wants Trump gone. The reason he has taken different actions publicly is because if he loses the base, he loses his position as Majority Leader and that is the one thing that matters to him more than anything else.
Speaking of right wing media: they keep whining and screaming about how they know and have all this proof of a stolen election. Well? Where is it? Show us. If this is fact and proof, show us. Let us see it. If it is so easily proven, show us. This happened, right? Facts. Proof. Show us the fraudulent votes. Show us. It is so easily proven, so proof. Or it didn't happen.
I have been pointing this out to deniers for weeks and they still insist and truly believe that there was funny business going on. The best excuse I got was they have all this proof but the courts are refusing to look at the evidence. And its truly sad because the people I know making these claims are so much better than this.
1) Term limits. Everyone wants them, no one can pass them. No voters want career politicians. We keep voting for them because "s/he is a terrible elected official but s/he has done such great things for us in our district/state!" Everyone believes career politicians are someone else's problem. The voters of Kentucky believe their two Senators are the greatest but the other 98 need to go and the voters in CA-12 (Pelosi) think their Representative is great but the other 434 need to go.
2) The media. We all know what the right believes. We are forced to hear it all the time. At the same time, we know what the left believes but, at the same time, many believe they are lies. I don't know how to fix that. Reinstate the Fairness Doctrine? Break up monopolies in media? But, the very wealthy will cry about "free speech" even though they will still be able to speak freely. Critical thinking in public schools? That is called "indoctrination" by the right. Something needs to be done to allow both sides to be heard without the hate and vitriol and bullying being done by not who you think...
You are right that everyone wants Term Limits. When Gingrich and the GOP took over congress in 1994, Term Limits was part of their contract with American. It passed both houses, but Bill Clinton vetoed the bill, and most of the opposition to the bill came from Democrats. To me what is needed is a way for Politicians to be afraid of losing power. If there is no chance of them losing power, there is no incentive for them to do anything. I know every House seat is up every two years. But when you draw districts in a way that favors one party, unless you can primary that person, which has happened more regularly lately but is still very rare, they are basically guaranteed to hold their seat until they wish to retire. I get the CA-12, and the problem with that district is its Liberal but not progressive as the district is loaded with six figure income earners who really are not that interested in M4A or things like that because they already have theirs, and all these people by the way are major donors to Pelosi's campaign.
As for the Media, you are already seeing a growing segment of podcasters and web based news agencies who people are turning to more and more because of a lack of trust in the Media. Between MSNBC blatantly gaslighting for the Democratic Establishment and actually having their anchors consistently insult progressives to their face, and Foxnews with an obvious rightward tilt, and CNN basically a safe house for the Cuomo family to go, it is obvious there is a lack of honest journalism. The Rising with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti has grown significantly in recent months as a counter to this, the Intercept is breaking tons of stories that in the past would have been broken by the New York Times, and a growing podcast segment is becoming increasingly influential. I rarely turn into cable news anymore because I know I wont get the truth from any of them. Yes you can change the fairness doctrine or break up monopolies in media, but the best way to affect change is to simply not watch these outlets and go to different sources. A great example. Not one mainstream media source reported on how Dem House Ways and Means Committee Chair Richie Neal used a blatantly homophobic smear to quash a progressive primary challenger. No Democrat should ever be associated with anything homophobic, but when the establishment was challenged, this is exactly how they quashed him. BTW, during this lame duck session, Richie Neal killed a democratic provision to prevent surprise medical billing from hurting the working folks. This is not the first time he has done this, and he has never been called out for it.
