The GOP is still morally corrupt, even if Discourse breaks

The floor is lava.

These people are idiots. Military action in the Americas will be nothing but an extremely costly disaster, and the only ones who benefit are China and Russia.

Wow, I even looked for it before I posted. I blame age.

As for the discharge position you would think some Republicans would join as there are a handful that are marginally ‘to the left’ of some House Democrats, but somehow I doubt it.

Here’s an idealogical score sheet from 2022, so not totally valid but it does provide an interesting idealogical cross section.

Top conservative Democrats:

#1 0.47 Rep. Gottheimer [D-NJ5]
#2 0.43 Rep. Cuellar [D-TX28]
#3 0.42 Rep. Golden [D-ME2]
#4 0.37 Rep. Spanberger [D-VA7]
#5 0.35 Rep. Slotkin [D-MI8]
#6 0.35 Rep. Murphy [D-FL7]
#7 0.35 Rep. Phillips [D-MN3]

Top, uh, moderate Republicans.

#208 0.40 Commish. González-Colón [R-PR]
#209 0.40 Rep. McCarthy [R-CA23]
#210 0.38 Rep. Hollingsworth [R-IN9]
#211 0.34 Rep. Radewagen [R-AS]
#212 0.34 Rep. Conway [R-CA22]
#213 0.32 Rep. Flood [R-NE1]
#214 0.30 Rep. Sempolinski [R-NY23]
#215 0.29 Rep. Yakym [R-IN2]

I got banned from twitter for calling that woman a whore, and I regret nothing.

Well, I can see why. That was quite insulting to whores.

But she has sold herself, so I feel like it is appropriate.

But sold herself to who? Ie, who are the idiots who benefit from default.

It’s Strangelove-ian, cockroach Herodotus level winning.

Texas legislature finally getting around to impeaching Ken Paxton for all the crimes he still, somehow, hasn’t been arrested for.

“We all know who the anti-Semites are!”

impeached

Under state law, Paxton is now temporarily suspended from his duties as attorney general and will await a Senate trial.

Basically Paxton declared the GOP House leader a drunk and demanded his removal from office a week ago. The House GOP leadership basically said “oh really?” and impeached him .

This feels like him getting his comeuppance but it’s really a lone shark getting set on by a pack of sharks. Paxton’s been a POS for years but they only care when he’s directly attacking his own party leadership. He’s not running for office and they saw him as an existential threat.

“After much consideration, it is with profound disappointment that I call on Speaker Dade Phelan to resign at the end of this legislative session,” Paxton said in a statement Tuesday. “Texans were dismayed to witness his performance presiding over the Texas House in a state of apparent debilitating intoxication. His conduct has negatively impacted the legislative process and constitutes a failure to live up to his duty to the public.”

Later Tuesday, Paxton posted an image of a letter asking the House General Investigating Committee to look into Phelan’s “conduct unbecoming his position.”

I thought Paxton didn’t call the speaker a drunk until after the impeachment was being discussed.

If it was before, what was his motivation for kicking that bees nest?

“I remember when every nation in Africa had a different name. They still do, but they used to too.”

Literally had federal charges for 9 years at this point.

Which boggles the mind on every level.

Grifters were grifting? Shocking!

(Yes, they’re also authoritarian cunts.)
