Dammit. Skuj, you know I dig you. I dig you, maaaan. But the thread should not be restricted to the Biden presidency nor to the United States. So I'm going ahead with The Politics Thread.

On my bottle wine to celebrate. Biden is now in town. He's got the senate, the house and no excuses. Lad better do some good and not go back to the norm. Feel like the pressure is more on him than Obama ever had to not fuck up.

Fuuuuck, what a breath of fresh air.

Look, Biden will not be perfect. His People will fuck up from time to time.

But Goddammit, this feels like a strange new world after the bullshitstorm of the past 4 years. People are telling the truth! The Climate Crisis is real. The Covid Crisis is real. People who are not complete assholes/morons are being installed into very high office. Democracy has survived.











And Byteme/Skunk are gone!!

It's dizzying what has happened already. I love it.

I'm in the military. I know serving transgender people. Trump's ban was one of his stupider moves, and that's saying something!

here's a nice little article about the return of sanity to the white house press room

it's hard to summarize but after 4 years of utter shitshow this little vignette and commentary feels almost right out of the west wing tv show:

"White House press secretary Jen Psaki ended Tuesday’s press briefing with a quick exchange: “Thank you, Jen,” said Josh Boak, a White House reporter for the Associated Press. “Great,” replied Psaki. Then she put on her mask and headed out.

Those four words signaled the resurrection of an old White House briefing room tradition — observed under both Democratic and Republican administrations — in which the press secretary awaits the nod of the attending AP reporter before closing the book. (The privilege was initially assigned to the senior wire correspondent, but it eventually turned into an exclusively AP role.) Whereas her predecessor, Kayleigh McEnany, often ended briefings with scripted attacks on the media, Psaki has embraced a custom that accords the media a voice in the management of the briefing room."

the rest:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...ing-tradition/

so fucking nice. may this never end, for fucks sakes

I have my issues with Aaron Sorkin's parallel reality style (I did watch The West Wing in its entirety "back in the day", though), but yes, this is how it's done. Unless it's Dubya, in which case you throw a shoe at the guy - also a tradition!

sorkin kept me comforted during the bush years with escapism, but also sane with some sense of what the world could/should be like. which for many of us was not a pacifier, but a reminder not to let things go.

some people i met doing campaign work got into politics inspired by that show actually. i mean, anybody can protest and smash windows and sign petitions (lol petitions), but actually governing is a totally different story, and that show attempted to show how the grownups did it--yes, idealized, but still, also educational.

santos for america!

lol anyway it's nice to see real adults in the press room again.

The Matt Santos storyline did have some elements remarkably similar to what would later happen with Barack Obama. In any case, I'll watch anything with Bradley Whitford on it. Hell, the guy even made one of those moronic Adam Sandler movies watchable.

ETA: I'm reading now that Obama was actually used "as a model for Santos". Considering that the Santos season (The West Wing's last one) ran from September 2005 to May 2006, that's some Yankee Hotel Foxtrot-level vision right there.
