I hope he had to go through the main terminal at DCA or IAD.  In front of the TSA employees who are not being paid.

What's even more sick is that the government is apparently sending checks out to the workers who are stalled, and they are printed with nothing but zeroes on them. That's farked up right there.

I wonder if he gets his own private airport entrance. If not, I really hope (a) there's video of him dealing with TSA and (b) that he got sent to the special room to have his shell probed*.

*video of this is NOT necessary

"Sen. McConnell and his caucus


What use would he have for a staff or a caucus?

Then the North-Going Zax puffed his chest up with pride.
"I never," he said, "take a step to one side.
And I'll prove to you that I won't change my ways
If I have to keep standing here fifty-nine days!"

"And I'll prove to YOU," yelled the South-Going Zax,
"That I can stand here in the prairie of Prax for fifty-nine years!
For I live by a rule
That I learned as a boy back in South-Going School.
Never budge! That's my rule. Never budge in the least!
Not an inch to the west! Not an inch to the east!
I'll stay here, not budging! I can and I will
If it makes you and me and the whole world stand still!"



I can't remember... Is Trump the South going Zax and Pelosi the North going one, or is it the other way around?
 
2019-01-11 09:54:02 PM  
Trump suddenly announced at the end of last year that he would not sign bills to keep to government

*Sigh*

Nice try. Here's a more accurate scenario:

I think McConnell is afraid of facing his own party.  He abandoned his post, slunk off home to hide for the weekend and basically gave the Democrats the run of the Senate.  they're giving speeches on the floor of the Senate and looking like they're sticking around to work while McConnell looks like he's an arrogant elitist who just don't care what happens to the 'little people'.

NOT good optics for the GOP, and McConnell is just handing the Dems a prime opportunity to slam the GOP and get away clean.
 
2019-01-12 12:19:33 AM  
Mitch McConnell needs to do his damn job and bring a vote on the bill that the House passed, you know, the exact same one that passed unanimously in the Senate last month? If it was good enough to get unanimous support then it's good enough now. McConnell's job is to bring it to a vote and override a veto if necessary.

This is the scandal. The Republican leadership in the Senate has completely abrogated their responsibility. The House did their job, the Republicans in charge of the Senate are refusing to do theirs.

Now i'm wondering if this is some sort of strategy to avoid paying back-pay to people when the gov reopens.

"They don't need back-pay, see? We already printed loads of cheques to federal worlers, and on time too? What? There was no monetary value on them? How is this supposed to matter in context?"

That's about what I expected from him.  Unless you're paying him he DOES NOT CARE

McConnel going to Kentucky during shut down is unforgivable.

Pelosi in Hawaii on vacation? Perfectly acceptable.

It's actually McConnel and Trump squaring off, but thanks for playing!  I like it when you make it easy, makes the color coding simple.

I'd be okay with Pelosi going to Kentucky now, and holding Town Halls.

Yes. And? The bill is in the Senate, house passed it.

Pelosi did her job, she deserves a vacation.

Mitch is actively avoiding his.

To add to this, if you have the time this weekend, and you're in Kentucky, drop by mitches house ask him what he's doing.

Punk biatch.

He certainly had time to meet one of the most evil men on the planet before he left, so give him some credit.

How's the weather in Kentucky?  Snow has shut us down in St. Louis, and most of the snow passed us to the south.

If he's stuck in his car all night, trying to get home from the airport, that's just fine.

I hope he finds nothing but discontent and misery when he's back in Kentucky. I hope people spit in his face as soon as he steps foot in the airport. I hope people heckle him, flip him off, and call him an asshole. He doesn't deserve to be left alone. If he wants to be hated by Americans, those Americans should go out of their way to oblige him to the exact same extent as he's gone out of his way to fark the country over.

Mitch is truly the most evil person in Washington.

I hope the Democrats hammer him for turtling back to Kentucky. I hope the hammer him hard for dereliction of duty. I also hope they hammer hard that if this racist, xenophobic wall was so damn important, why the fark wasn't anything done about it in the last two years.

Weaver95: I think McConnell is afraid of facing his own party.


Only three have publicly said vote on the House bill. Only one said it after they first said it earlier in the week. And zero have said anything, even anonymously to the press, that McConnell might be challenged.

NOT good optics for the GOP, and McConnell is just handing the Dems a prime opportunity to slam the GOP and get away clean.

Bad optics on what TV station that the Trumpnuts watch?
 
2019-01-12 12:46:29 AM  
I hope he gets dysentery.
 
2019-01-12 12:47:11 AM  
McConnell really hasn't handled this shutdown well at all.  he's been distracted, and says little or nothing in the few meeting they can get him to attend.

I know he's feeling the heat.  I mean, people were already shouting at him if/when they see him in public.  plus I know the GOP have been screaming at him to call a vote and end this stupid shutdown.

*shrug*

got me man.  don't make no damn sense.

Well they won't, because they keep electing him over and over and they elected Donald Trump, so yeah, they're as f*cking stupid as him, so don't expect that buddy.
