The GOP is no longer a serious political party. It’s a vaudeville show, and all they care about these days is performing. Not performing good deeds, mind you. Just performing. And the top clowns were all feeling their oats on Wednesday.  Whether he’s concocting ad hoc reasons for flying to...

The GQP declares it’s all about the violence. The Second Amendment was discussed (as well as the host’s invocation of “semiotics”) by @shannonrwatts and  @DavidJollyFL on All In with Chris Hayes @allinwithchris, but it also applies to 14th Amendment solutions. Denying Trump the ability to run for federal office under Article 3 would...

I never thought to hear such snark from someone as genteel as Merrick Garland. And maybe he wasn’t trolling the poster boy of domestic terror and insurrection after all. But, damn, it sure feels like Garland, whose path to the Supreme Court was derailed by a metric fuck-ton of Republican...

Okay, I’ve been sporadically watching the impeachment trial today. Sporadically, because watching the trial isn’t literally my job. I had other pressing matters to attend to as well. But this is Josh Hawley’s job, at least for the moment—and, well, he doesn’t seem too interested in doing it. You remember Josh,...

While I totally agree that a certain new Representative from Georgia should at least be stripped of her committees — and realistically should be expelled from the House, although we know that will not that happen —  that does not go far enough. Everyone in the House and the Senate...

Always weird when Ted Cruz seeks cover by agreeing with AOC. NEW TX POLL: A majority of Texas voters (51%) — and 52% of Texas Independents — support Ted Cruz’s resignation following his role in inciting the January 6th insurrection. Our latest poll w/ @MoveOn:https://t.co/g3ZnVrK7FR pic.twitter.com/0HUyQHgAWe — Data for Progress...

Every time someone objects to the right-wing nonsense, they respond by whining we’re trying to censor them. Marjorie Taylor Greene of QAnon  asshole fame even likes to wear a mask that says “CENSORED” on it. (Well, she doesn’t like to wear a mask, so that’s just more of her norrishkeit....

The use of the two-word phrase cancel-culture has become an evasion tactic analogous to the words race-card. Both of these media memes have become an alibi for incitement to violent hatred and racial bigotry. The lack of basic knowledge the rioters have about the Constitution— they were willing to desecrate...

Josh Hawley (R-MO) was the first-mover on the objection to the electoral college result count. Congress has reconvened and Kelly Loeffler has withdrawn her objection . “Josh Hawley is the Jim Jordan of Jared Kushners”, as the fatality from today’s attack on Congress is identified. x Brutal first graf in ⁦@KCStar⁩...

Speaking of criminal behavior, protesters left strongly worded placards and votive candles at Josh Hawley’s house, which he called vandalism and an attack on his wife and child by “antifa scumbags”. x So, they left signs (with words spelled correctly) and flickering candles. Those were very grammatical and polite “vandals.”—...

We have reached peak absurdity, folks. Two days ago we learned that at least 140 GOP House members had signed on to Donald Trump’s lifelong quest to quiet Fred Trump’s stentorian cries of “LOSER,” which have ping-ponged in POTUS’ head like a pair of droopy, zero-gravity Murdoch balls for the past...

Is this like conservatives abandoning Twitter for Parler?  Actually, no. Sounds a bit more like people threatening to move to Canada if we pass “socialized” medicine. Because, uh, where the fuck are they gonna go for cheaper shit brought to you by workers who have been more cruelly exploited? Seems...

Over sixty failed law suits and 50 certifications later, and aside from the stunt-quality, Josh Hawley steps ahead of Tom Cotton in a move to take hold of the Trump base. All he needs is a bit of QAnon numerology. The reality is that it is definitely a stunt for...

Well, this is brutal… St. Louis Post Dispatch “This newspaper endorses McCaskill, 65, in the Nov. 6 election for U.S. Senate. We had expected a harder choice, but GOP candidate Josh Hawley, the state attorney general, has made it easier by undermining his own competitiveness with political miscalculations and blunders....

Josh Hawley, Missouri’s Rethuglican Attorney General and low energy candidate for Claire McCaskill Senate seat, is dragging a debate “trailer” around the Show Me State and accusing Claire of avoiding a debate with him, knowing full well Yurtle is holding campaign season hostage to his desire to stack SCOTUS for...
