A decent Blue Wave here in Pennsylvania yesterday. It will be some time before the final vote counts are in, mostly because Governor Wolf extended the acceptance time for mail in ballots as long as they were post-marked by yesterday. Still, some progressives here in Allegheny County who were being challenged by machine Democrats had an excellent showing. Congrats to Emily Kinkead, Summer Lee, and Jessica Benham!

There is officially a pause in postcarding and letter-writing for the moment. I got my last batch out the door in the nick of time yesterday for a PA primary election in the northeast corner of the state. Now I get to take a few days off and regroup.

My local action group had been planning to do some trainings over the spring and summer, and we're now trying to convert them to online platforms. I'll be doing the postcarding training, and sponsoring a Wine and Postcards Zoom meeting at some point. So today I ordered lots of postcard stamps and blank USPS postcards. Support your Postal Service!

When the new Dem administration comes in they and Congress will need to codify a LOT of things into law. Too many things have been left to "tradition" and "norms". As we all learned after Watergate, trust no one.

In better Blue Wave news:

Associated Press April 3, 2020 at 8:18 p.m. EDT
MADISON, Wis. ó Federal appeals court refuses to block extension of absentee voting in Wisconsin election.

The WI GOP, of course, intends to endanger public health by appealing to the US Supreme Court to keep the election on Tuesday, April 7. If there is any logic in any of our judiciary, they will say that you can't hold a fair election in a lockdown when you can't even get poll workers to show up.

Fingers crossed! WI needs another liberal on its own Supreme Court, and that's why their GOP is having the vapors.

I can't be the only person who is relieved that the primary process is finally winding down. My candidate did not win (Elizabeth Warren) but I am ready to elect either of the two still running! And I'm especially gung ho to flip the Senate, keep the House, and flip my State Legislature!

Cowabunga!!!

Oy that Iowa caucus.

I was up until 1 a.m. hoping for results!

I know a lot of folks are anti-caucus. WA State just switched to primaries. I really do like the neighborhood aspect of getting together with people and talking about issues and candidates. Anyway, hoping for results soon!

("The Resident") :)

I had a hard time listening and I'm retreating for a bit. But yes, hard-working House Managers...I like that Congressman Schiff spent some time today naming and thanking the staff that's been working hard behind the scenes.

NGL, I am angry at the dems, too, many of them. It's like there's a bully in the lunch line, hitting students and throwing their trays to the ground. Meanwhile, the dem lunch monitor is telling everyone to stand in the line like they're supposed to.

Not necessarily advocating for a riot, but following procedure and the Constitution is not effective when one side of the aisle blatantly ignores it.

Finishing up some Thank You postcards to the House Managers and Speaker Pelosi. They did an outstanding job in a largely thankless process.

We all knew this process would not end in expulsion, but The Resident is permanently impeached, and (thanks to the GOP lapdogs in the Senate) never exonerated. The final vote tally doesn't even matter at this point.

Just a daily reminder: smile and laugh...a lot, look for positive traits in people, compliment yourself and others, focus on feeling good, reach out to people in need and focus on the present and the 24 hours in front of you.
