Above is my happy crony Carolyn, in a photo taken by her husband Matthew right after Biden took the oath of office, swearing on that enormous bible. She's wearing pink and green in honor of Vice-President Harris's sorority, whose colors they are. If you remember, Harris's mask was pink-and-green, with the sorority's initials embroidered. Oh, and the pearls are in honor of Harris herself, who always wears pearls.
My friend Betsy, who creates videos for South Carolina Educational TV, told me that Black women were organizing groups to support each other even under slavery. So the history of black sororities is long and proud.
Vice-President Harris. I savor those words.
I love this photo. The light, the colors, Carolyn's joy, the fuzzy pink V, the fabulous Mexican apron...
It turns out that the heads of some on the extreme right are exploding. They truly believed -- not only that Trump DID win the election -- but that Trump would lead them in an armed revolt in order to prevent Biden from being inaugurated! I mean, that's what they really thought! This lazy, incompetent man whose cowardice is bonespur-deep.
The Proud Boys are VERY VERY UPSET. Now Trump is a "shill" and "weak."
According to the NY Times:
On social media, Proud Boys participants have complained about his willingness to leave office and said his disavowal of the Capitol rampage was an act of betrayal... The Proud Boys' anger toward Mr. Trump has heightened after he did nothing to help those in the group who face legal action for the Capitol violence.
"When Trump told them that if he left office, America would fall into an abyss, they believed him," said Arieh Kovler, who studies the far right. "Now that he has left office, they believe he has both surrendered and failed to do his patriotic duty." In the last two weeks of December, they pushed Mr. Trump in their protests and on social media to "Cross the Rubicon."
On Wednesday, the Proud Boys Telegram group welcomed President Biden to office. "At least the incoming administration is honest about their intentions, the group wrote.
So all along, the Proud Boys were just looking for an honest man. And they found him -- in President Biden!
That is why his followers believed he won the election -- because he HAD to win or the universe falls apart. It was easier for them to believe absurd conspiracy theories involving dead Venezuelan presidents than to get their brains around Trump losing.
So their universe started falling apart at the VERY SAME MOMENT that Matthew took Carolyn's picture! So many people's universe changed -- AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT!
It took courage for Garth Brooks to sing at Biden's Inauguration. Did you know that? I didn't. You see, he's a country music star. Actually he's THE country music star. Many of his fans felt betrayed and let the world know on social media immediately. Click the photo below to see MSNBC's take on Garth's bravery.
So thank you, Garth! And thank you for your performance at the Grand Old Opry in 2009. My sister Nancy and I were thrilled to hear you live -- AND that newcomer -- what was her name? Oh yeah -- Taylor Swift!
We conclude our "Good Stuff" with...
... And a Happy Fauci to YOU!
Well, Bloggelinis, it's a new day, ain't it! And we've even had a bit of RAIN here, which always washes away our anxiety -- temporarily. I suggest, if you're ever planning a visit to Nashville, you MUST get tickets to the Grand Old Opry in advance. It's quite an experience. You might even catch a future superstar, as Nancy and I did!
