    • I have a feeling things are about to get even more weird before things get better.

      That said, I do think we'll see more Republicans gradually accept the results of this. They're just trying to figure out how to do so without upsetting Trump's base. It's the base they're most afraid of.

      Going into today, we had Republican senators Mitt Romney (Utah), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Susan Collins (Maine), and Ben Sasse (Nebraska) congratulate Biden on his victory and formally acknowledge it. We can now add one more to the list: James Lankford (Oklahoma). He said on a radio show that if Biden isn't getting his intelligence briefings by Friday, he'll step in and do something. So, we're starting to see some of them break ranks. More will follow in the coming days and weeks, I'm sure. It's just a matter of them doing so as delicately as possible.
