We start our discussion with the CPAC meeting, and remark that the attendees considered that the most important topic to be discussed was “Election Integrity”. This is a veiled attempt to please Trump, who is still promulgating the Big Lie, of his having been cheated out of a presidential win. It appears that the Republicans have decided to follow him. They don’t want to actually govern the country, but profit from whatever they can. Trump has given them permission for their bad behavior. Unfortunately, they have been successful in dominating the states’ legislatures, and are changing the rules, and suppressing votes. They are now the party of White grievance, rather than a true political philosophy.

Andrew Cuomo’s arrogance does not help him. He is in trouble in New York, and must be held responsible for his behavior.
The panel discussed McConnell’s support for Trump’s possible 2024 presidential candidacy. McConnell wants to be Senate president again.
