Authoritarian minority rule on full display in the Senate after Republicans successfully “vote down” the Bipartisan Jan-6 Commission by a tally of... 35 to 54.

That’s right, R’s “win” with 35 votes.

Can you imagine what Fox News would be saying if, in some “shithole” country, a wanna-be-strongman had fomented a mob insurrection to seize power? And then, after the effort failed, co-conspirators “won” a vote 35-to-54 to sweep the matter under the rug?

Aren't there 100 Senators?

There's gossip that she's Stan Lane from the Midnight Express wrestling tag team of the 80's daughter.

So the Midnight Express to you is Bobby Eaton and Dennis Condrey?

Actually I didn’t know Bobby Eaton had died a couple of weeks ago until I started Googling about Stan Lane.

Non-political geographical question:  The Haiti earthquake, wouldn't the Dominican Republic also get quaked?  It's the same island.

It is a pretty big island, so there is plenty of distance for the effects to decrease.
