    "does anyone know snail first aid?"

    "Yes ..I mean no."

    A+ showing for Janet this episode. She has mad fighting skills. And a great guest role for Michael McKean.

    I wonder if the next twist is going to be that no one has actually been getting into the good place because the "accounting" was rigged by Shawn or someone in the bad place.

    Jared Golden just won the ranked-choice voting election in Maine's 2nd CD, if that result holds it'll be another Dem flip and there will be ZERO republicans in the House from New England and just one in the Senate.

    Sidenote - RCV is a pretty cool idea to implement (this was the first time it's ever been done for congress)- let's you voice your support for a 3rd party candidate but ultimately not harm your 2nd choice candidates (if you have one) chances in a close race, and also doesn't require holding a runoff election like some states have if no candidate reaches 50%, so saves a lot of money and is probably better for turnout in that case.

    " believe they [Republicans] are so vocal in their dislike of her because she is really good at being Speaker, and would be effective at getting Democrats to make the most of their control of the House for the next 2 years. If democrats instead choose some moderate white dude"

    They're so vocal because of the rabid hate they've managed to whip against her amongst the base.  She's the best thing since Hillary for keeping Republicans animated.  

    Didn't work so much this year. They ran plenty of ads saying such and such candidate was a "Nancy Pelosi Democrat" ... And they got their ass handed to them in the election. Hilary was an actual candidate in their ballot that they could vote against in 2016. Pelosi is more of an abstraction that plays well in rallies and social media, but doesn't actually translate to votes as much as they claim.
