  2. Kinda of a “fun” fact. At the moment there are no members of the United States House of Representatives. Every member, even the ones re-elected, are “Representative-Elect because they can’t be sworn i
  3. Two scenarios that I find more likely than Kevin McCarthy becoming Speaker: McCarthy steps aside and quits Congress 5 Detractors decide to nuke the whole thing and vote present in protest making Jeffr
  4. Do these McCarthy detractors want to embarrass him or obliterate him? More challenging for McCarthy, would any of the detractors pay any price from the voters for obliterating him? Fighting a Speaker
  5. “Ms. Stefanik’s reinvention has made her a case study in the collapse of the old Republican establishment and its willing absorption into the new, Trump-dominated one.”
  6. This is so weird because I was told “nobody asked for this movie” and “Avatar has no cultural footprint.” Yet, people are seeing it. A lot of people are seeing it.

  14. I forgot that the original Avatar didn't break $100M when it opened in 2009. We will see what happens over the next few weeks but with a strong "A" CinemaScore and nothing but "Puss in Boots" heading
  15. There’s a real substitute teacher has lost control of the class situation happening over at Twitter. Fun! I’m happy to be over here with you all.
  16. For what it's worth I don't think Elon has made Twitter significantly worse. He has made it all about him now and that is certainly a downgrade. Still, I think it's largely the same. It's always been
  17. Cameron's reputation as a technical wizard is well earned. What is underrated is his ability to effectively play on his audience's emotion. All of his films from Terminator to Aliens to True Lies to A
