I could see him going on Dancing With the Stars if it weren't for him seemingly taking his views very seriously about not being around other women.


He should have had better exit plans post-Trump. He clearly thought he could glom on for 4-8 years and be set up, but Trump never gave a damn about him (and wouldn't have even if Pence had gone even further in trying to steal the election), and now Trump's brain-dead cult will also ensure he has no real future post-VP.


Such a craven slug. 


His political future in the GOP is finished but he  will land somewhere. Some of the left applauded him for the doing the right thing at the certification of the Electoral College when he was just doing his job. When Trump decides to run again  for President  in 2024 (I'm going on the assumption that he not going to be convicted and is still alive), Ivanka is probably going to be his running mate. It's rumored that she's going to run for Senator in Florida in 2022.

He'll never run on the GOP ticket again. I doubt he'll even ever run again, he'll just raise money on the idea. And he'll never hold office again.

Agreed. Even if he doesn't get convicted in the impeachment trial (and given that only 5 Republican senators are for it so far, I'm almost positive he'll be acquitted - sadly), he's going to be neck deep in litigation for years to come.

Some people down the street from me blacked out Pence's name on their Trump sign and flag. There is a lot of irrational anger towards Pence over him not trying to invalidate the election results even though he had not authority to.

The GOP are doing what they always do with extremists - they are taking Marjorie Taylor Greene's money and harnessing her following, while going to the media to pretend they are concerned. And the media, which always needs to believe the best of them, nods along.


Speaking of that, I still keep wondering if Manchin and Sinema will force some kind of bare bones "bipartisan" package and refuse to do anything else. 


I know a lot of people hate AOC, feel she is overdramatic, attention-seeking, etc. but I'm glad she shut down Ted Cruz's naked attempt to pivot to, "Look, everyone can agree, so forget the riot Ted Cruz helped foment ever happened!" Ted Cruz thrives on being a partisan, and no amount of phony "can't we all just get along" posturing should ever erase the damage he has done over the last decade. If he weren't so embarrassingly and obviously self-loathing and eager for approval, I can't imagine how much worse his effects would have been on this country.

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
    • I love me some Lauren but had to laugh at her lecturing Sally and Summer on women treating women well. Send them an ice cream sundae why don’t you Lauren?
    • Good lort we are never going to get a break from Liam are we? I love me some Dollar Bill and Don Diamont ever since Brad was the pool boy in a cage on the Young and Restless but this is beyond silly.  I really think DDs talents would be better on Young and Restless. Bill Spencer would fit in better in GC IMO.
