How Biden and the Democrats Can Expand Their Majority
Chip Somodevilla/GettyAre Republicans going to help Democrats save the republic, or have they abandoned democratic order for authoritarianism? That's one question that will define the Joe Biden presidency and next generation of America—one that the incoming president should diplomatically, but forcefully, challenge the GOP to answer in his upcoming inaugural address.

Then, he should reassert his presidential thesis: The Democratic objective—to quell domestic extremism, the pandemic, and its explosive economic inequality—must be a bipartisan American imperative. And this can't be an olive branch alone but also an ultimatum: If you don't disown Trumpism, we will brand you forever as the authoritarian party.

The Republican Party's anti-democratic fanaticism clearly helped Democrats secure their long-shot twin Georgia victories and a tenuous Senate majority for the next two years.

Bill Maher Delivers Final Insult to Kellyanne Conway on ‘Real Time'
HBOOn the evening of Jan. 7, a full day after an army of Trump fanatics—at the president's orders—stormed the U.S. Capitol on a mission to overthrow the government, menacing congresspeople and killing a police officer in the process, Kellyanne Conway issued a rambling statement on Twitter. In it, one of Trump's most loyal and semi-trusted advisers condemned the events as "outrageous and inexcusable," followed by the comical lie that her former boss had "denounced the violence, acknowledged the certified election results and committed to a ‘peaceful transfer of power' to the Biden-Harris Administration."

The wildly false claim was met with a near-universal raised eyebrow, including by Kellyanne's own teenage daughter, who said to her mother (via TikTok), "How do you feel about your army becoming rioters?"

Well, Kellyanne—who once invented a terrorist attack in the "Bowling Green Massacre"—visited Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night for its 19th season premiere. Kellyanne and Maher have a history of chumminess dating back to his ABC show Politically Incorrect, and, perhaps because she can no longer be of any use, the comedian finally conducted a (sorta) challenging interview with the professional obfuscator and lie-teller (in between smiles and yuk-yuks, of course).
