I'm so happy Samantha has her own show. She is definitely carving out a niche for herself by boldly claiming the feminist label on her show and covering things from that perspective. It remains to be seen whether she can draw sufficient audience in that niche to keep her show growing and on the air, but we can hope.

In regards to republican attempts to portray their Supreme Court tactics as a replay of previous democratic efforts, there is a lot of smoke there... but there is some fire. Biden himself has been rather balanced in describing the kind of authority the Senate wields in these situations.

It's completely idiotic and dare I say unpatriotic what McConnell is doing. In that clip Biden himself said in 1992 that if a nomination is moderate enough he would support it. Merrick Garland is the definition of moderate.
