His first half hour was pretty much "old" Colbert.

Loved it!

Yes, we know.

"Surprisingly realistic"

Didn't catch his name, but the broadcaster on MSNBC just now referred to Melissa McCarthy's latest SNL gig as "a surprisingly realistic impersonation" of Sean Spicer.

Seeds of Grass

Well, now, that was refreshing! We just had our monthly county Democrats luncheon. As it happens, tomorrow is our re-org meeting, and many of those at the luncheon were there to tout the re-org, especially some who are standing for local and state party offices. The happiest part is that many of them are young (early twenties to early thirties) — fantastic! A couple of them worked in our Hillary field office, others worked on other campaigns. They are informed, energetic, eager to get to work and contagiously enthusiastic.

Some of our grayer heads are moving to other positions to make room for the incoming generation, but they will still be here for guidance through the rules, regs, howcomes, and becuzzes. We also have people ready to step up for elections that are more than a year away, others who have announced for city and county positions.

Our office, by the way, staffed entirely by volunteers, keeps regular business hours through the week; the public is welcome to drop in (and they do!). The irony here is that 99% of city and county positions are currently held by republicans, but they closed their office a year ago. Hmmm.

Anyway, after a couple of pretty grim months, today’s gathering was decidedly refreshing. And tomorrow is looking to be likewise. Welcome back, enthusiasm, we’ve missed you!

In their confirmation of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, senate Republicans have enthusiastically turned their backs on those who fought and died for our founding principles. In so doing they have jettisoned our founding principles and delivered the mechanisms of governance squarely to the proponents of fascism. No drug induced nightmare could have conjured such a horror.

I am truly sick at heart.

Trump and Gorsuch, made for each other.

Small wonder that President Pussy Grabber appoints Judge Uterus Grabber.

He really is trying to throw us into reverse. Permanently.

More than 2000 turn out in Fort Collins to protest immigration ban

A friend who was there says that community response was very positive, lots of honks and waves, etc.

Great pics at the link.
