Georgia’s on everybody’s mind this week. Biden beat Trump by a nose and they’re doing a recount by hand. There’s also the runoff for two U.S. Senate Seats, with Mitch McConnell’s leadership hanging in the balance.

Oh, and the Masters is being played in November. Must be 2020.

Or something like that – Scalia was wittier.

I drew this cartoon after the court ruled Bush beat Gore in the 2000 election.

He also shot pool with Governor Hickenlooper and shook hands with a horse. He was offered a hit of marijuana but turned it down. Fortunately, Maureen Dowd wasn’t in town to offer him a candy bar.

Rich Lowry calls the border crisis Obama’s “man caused disaster“.
