“Lest we forget, Democrats were not, in fact, sent to Washington with a mandate to change everything, but given an evenly divided Senate, the slimmest House majority since World War I, and a president who won in a squeaker. Had just 90,000 votes gone the other way, it would be the Republicans, not the Democrats, who would control all of Washington, D.C. Were this a time of plenty, the case for a splurge would remain weak.”

There has to be some talent out there somewhere, although with the current crop of writers the show has, they’d have a tough time showing it. Even the Robinhood crowd was disappointed, as they hoped Elon’s appearance might push Dogecoin to parity with the dollar. It wasn’t to be.
