I guess I'll have to try that when I visit DC next time.

Sen Duckworth. Respect. Smackdown!

I was kind of surprised about that.

I wasn't happy w Biden giving Repugs veto power on supenas But perhaps it might be the only way to get a commission, and it would be on the news, at least partially carried on TV (fully on certain channels)...
but I'm not sure how it can be gotten past The Senate.

I did hear that Dem Leadership is talking to the Parlamentarian. Whether that's for HR1, The Infrastructure Bill, or the Jan. 6 hearings (all three) ... I dunno.

Good post back there (#420) Headache.

Which is why a comparison between America and Russia's respective infantries, and using said infantries as a measure of military power, is so pointless. A war with Russia would never be fought between underweight social justice warriors and juiced up Call of Duty mutants like Ted is implying.

SHE SHOULD NOT BE IN CONGRESS. Also her calling anyone else "mentally ill"

https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/1395894122569945088?s=20

MTG says Speaker Pelosi wanting Members of Congress to get vaccinated and if not to wear masks is “exactly the type of abuse” as murdering Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust and David Brody nods along. No follow up.

Why waste your energy when you need it for renavigting the (usual) bigger world in your life
especially having a family with further reopenings.

I loved your (latest?) clown gif.

Oh, yeah. Pretty terrifying!
Still "It ain't over, till it's over..."!. as St Yogi sez. Whether typical Democratic activists, new coalitions, very slim, and [history shows] totally unexpected actions, events that change things, including events that might happen that go in Democrats, others, and Democracy's favor could happen. We have to do what we can ad part of this effort as we can to help this into reality.

There isn’t. Unless you think the Democrats are secretly participating in a coup against themselves which would be ... really something.

Probably best not to let rando tweets hawking conspiracy theories upset you.

I won't go that far, but I do feel Nancy plays the game and really looks out more for herself and the old guard than progress. That's my opinion of her, not that she secretly wanted to be hunted down and killed on 1/6.

The more frustrating part is the Dems could actually do a BIT more than they are. I really hope they are trying to appear bipartisan before saying fuck it, we tried....now we go alone.

Sinema and Manchin want it to be bipartisan.

And it’s a simple as that.

And the talk is he could run and win the 2024 GOP primary from prison

I don’t see him ending up there. One of his sons will take the fall. Bets are on Eric

Sean Illing

You said we were “at a very dangerous moment in American history” back in 2018. I have to say, the situation seems worse now. Trump is gone, but over the last year or so the Republican Party has taken an explicit turn against democracy itself. So what’s your current level of concern?

David Faris

My current level of concern is exploring countries to move to after 2024. I’m deeply concerned about the direction that the Republican Party has taken, especially over the last year or so. Things were bad in 2018, but the basic problem in 2018 was that we had structural factors working against the Democrats and you had a Republican Party that was fundamentally trying to keep people from voting.

So 2020 felt like a test run. The plot to overturn the 2020 election never had a real chance of working without some external intervention like a military coup or something like that, which I never thought was particularly likely. But the institutional path that they pursued to steal the election failed because they didn’t control Congress and they didn’t control the right governorships in the right places.

Bet they'll still take protection from the Capitol police. Complicit scumbags

Man gotta feel for Joe M

Who could have seen this coming ? You mean bipartisanship is dead ? That the GOP operates in bad faith ???

Shame there’s not a way around it.

Let’s hope this is the permission he needs to literally save democracy.

This is the new narrative - VP Harris hates and disrespects the military
