He operated for years in a sort of vacuum - he was very good, tremendous even, at keeping his own caucus in check. But for some reason he seems to have underestimated the insanity of the newer crop of Republicans and some of the older ones that have been emboldened to be even bigger assholes than before.

Maybe start giving WV and AZ senators whatever they want in exchange for killing the filibuster

Are the Dems really that naive to think they’ll hold onto power by trying to work with the other side
I don't think it's so much that as it is that I think they're afraid of the possibility that they could remove it, only to wish they had it should they find themselves the minority party again in the future. I totally agree with and understand the reasons for wanting to remove it altogether, but I can also see where the GOP would take advantage of that in the future should they regain power.

Even then, though, I think most of the Democrats do want to get rid of it. It's a small handful blocking the idea.

Of course they did. God, I hate that my state is under GOP control.

As for Rush, I'm just going with, "If you can't say anything nice...".

He was a horrendous person, and as responsible as anyone for the red/blue divide and for fueling white nationalist violence.

He did apologize for this, and stopped after 2 weeks. But he still did this:

So no guilt about speaking I’ll of the dead here.

It’s typically inappropriate to speak poorly of those who are dead but yes, what you cited there is definitely why idgaf what people say, good riddance to an egregiously bad human being.

The only thing I'll say is that shitting on someone the day he died is something that Rush Limbaugh would do, so I'm not going to do that because I don't want to be like Rush Limbaugh.

I can shit on him tomorrow.

Facebook has essentially just fucked Australia's news publishers, they have banned the sharing of ALL news on Australian Facebook, meaning you cannot share anything that remotely looks like news on the platform anymore. Gigantic ramifications.

But remember, suggesting that people who say things like that should be ignored and denied the chance to ever be in power again means you're totally a fascist!

Allegedly scumbag Ted Cruz flying to Cancun with his family, in the middle of one of the most dire situations Texas has ever seen. The other pictures look like him. F the people he represents.

Plus what about all the rapists and murderers in Mexico?

obviously it's a coincidence.

or maybe when you cut off sources of idiocy things improve.

probably just a coincidence.

Good riddance to Rush Limbaugh, and hopefully Ted Cruz [parody/redacted].

Unfortunately, things continue to look dire in the US on many, many fronts.

Did he think that with a wife that ugly and a father that internationally recognizable for his role in assassinating JFK that he would somehow manage to get through unnoticed??

I feel like these numbers to break apart will only increase over the years. If things stay Blue at the top then more and more southern states will push to break free.

If Red is in power you could see more of the coastal states start to make the same argument.

I do think maybe a change in how our senate is structured could happen first before a breakage of multiple countries, but it feels like the current path we are on is not sustainable.

Covid and the TX Freeze should show how important it is to have a federal - national government that provides the backbone and safety net to the states.

But we’ll end up having fights over windmills and if the sun is so powerful with energy why is it soooo cold!!!!

I will sign up for this today.

Especially if somehow we remain just a city state with no affiliation. Which, hey... Statehood!

Huzzah!

It turns out that constantly trying to thrust yourself into the national spotlight at all costs while sporting the look of a community theater Wolverine cosplayer is not good for anonymity.
