Open Mic November 16
There was a General panic as a Facebook tiff between two powerful, beautiful doctors’ wives turned into a full-fledged sex scandal.

Arizona is still fighting over provisional ballots, but, like cinema of old, Ms. Sinema goes to Washington anyway. If her election is certified, she will become the first openly bisexual member of Congress. Senator-elect Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) becomes the first openly gay Senator. Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco, CA) would rather be Speaker, but she’ll settle for Minority Leader.
