Cheers and Jeers: Monday

5 3 22

The Week Ahead

Monday The House and Senate reconvene after their Memorial Day break. Republicans arrive with baseball bats and dreams of perpetual one-party rule. Democrats arrive with freshly-written policy positions and dreams of someone, anyone, paying attention to them.

News spreads that Russia lost another general. Republicans and Fox News offer thoughts and prayers in the wake of the “senseless killing” and call for an immediate ban on assault weapons in Ukraine.

Tuesday It's primary day in California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, South Dakota, and 16 of Saturn's moons. (Keep an eye on the results from Titan—if Sxxg4klrbgl wins, they'll finally have enough votes to pass universal tentacle care.)


Wednesday Under the threat of being fined millions of dollars by Florida governor Ron DeSantis, Republicans in the Florida legislature pass a bill dissolving the Florida legislature.

The Mortgage Bankers Association releases the results of its latest mortgage purchase applications index. Experts predict the report will generate lots of "interest." Ha Ha Ha Ha good one!!!

Thursday The House Jan. 6 Subcommittee hearings air on live prime time TV. Americans are exposed a horrifying glimpse of just how close their country came to becoming a dictatorship under Donald Trump before clicking over to see which former member of Trump's inner circle is in the bald eagle costume on The Masked Singer.

Friday The University of Michigan's May consumer sentiment report comes out. Economists express optimism as the mood climbs from "flamboyantly indifferent" to "outlandishly nonplussed."

For yet another week, the only one to make good on a promise of delivering change is the climate.

Have a great week—I dare you. And now, our feature presentation…
