In other words, if norms aren't codified, just because we have certain traditions of peacefully transferring power, this President won't be inclined to follow them.

Gus is my new favorite word.
[Apologies for hijacking this thread, but the WDYFLSRN thread where this post belongs has a hideously offensive post in it which I am choosing NOT to have my post follow]

Watching the Trump&Friends Organization voice currently unsupported theories regarding voting errors in our recent national election reminds me of the original run of the tv program Lost: you never knew what wild plotline would come next, or what it 'meant' to the complete story, until the show ended its exhausting six year run.

So, when will Republicans blame mysterious polar bears in Alaska for Trump's overall election defeat?

And FTR, I only ever watched parts of the first and the final episodes of Lost, because its main ending was easy to figure out from carefully viewing its beginning.

(end thread hijack)

I'm not worried about conspiracy theories. I'm worried about the Supreme Court accepting illegitimate political arguments to overturn the will of the people. There are at least five justices who I think could potentially side with one of the cocamamie theories advanced by Guiliani et al.

HAPPY FOUNDERS’ DAY to the sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha! Today on “The View” Sunny Hostin is wearing a pink and green AKA founding date sweatshirt! I’m so happy to see lifetime Greek membership publicly celebrated and a member soon to be inaugurated as our first woman vice-president.

Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12, Charlotte area) is an AKA also, and posted a Founder's Day tribute today on Facebook.

“CBS This Morning” just did an excellent segment on AKA and how the sisters had worked nationwide to help elect the Biden/Harris ticket. The AKA spokeswoman also gave props to all the other Divine Nine groups who joined them.

On Wed., Jan 20, a bell in a tower on the Howard University campus (Harris’ alma mater and the home of AKA’s founding, will ring 49 times in honor of Harris as the 49th VP!

Again, SO NICE, to see positive pieces on Greek membership.

I saw that, too! I didn't realize the reporter Michelle Miller was a member! (I might have assumed if she went by her married name, Morial, as her husband is a well known Alpha)

Nice to see KH wearing Purple today (red + blue = purple) and Pearls in a nod to AKA.

So will all the Sigma Kappas start wearing life-sized dove brooches a la Lady Gaga?

The Vice President wore purple in honor of (my amazing Soror) Shirley Chisholm!

Actually, the purple was symbolic for working with both sides of the aisle (red and blue make purple).

The coverage of the Inauguration I saw said the purple was in honor of Shirley Chisholm.

^^^ Same here! I said, "that's purple?" when they announced the Shirley Chisholm reference. It looked more bluish to me.
