Bury the flag in the basement, limply salute Trump, cower, outwait him, and then emerge to go back to business under the GOP banner.

What about the American flag they're always waving? At the very least, they have shown zero concern for their fellow countrymen, at the cost of about 150,000 of them.

This is like the flood scene in Oh Brother Where Art Thou? where the author tries to grab a board to help him float and keep from drowning.

"If Republicans have some governing responsibility, they'll have some skin in the game. And having a Republican Senate would also give Biden leverage with the Democratic left. "

No sane person thinks that.

McConnell has never been a legislator. He is by his own admission an anti-legislator; he exists in the senate only to gum up the works. Somewhat fortunately, while he was chosen to stop Democrat legislation, he doesn't appear to be able to actually discriminate and is just as likely to stop republican legislation.

He voted against his own bill.

A match? I'd go for a stake and a mallet.

"And having a Republican Senate would also give Biden..."

- absolutely no judicial nominations a hearing or approve anyone for any cabinet positions, ambassadorships, or other executive branch nominations for as long as the GOP hold the majority.

The only way the dems can get legislation passed is if the greatest opponent to passing legislation in the history of the country remains in power.

Do people get paid to write this kind of transparent propaganda? I can write obvious lies, too. Someone pay me to do it. I can be shameless. Hell, if you own another blog that calls out shameless lies, I will make 2 pseudonyms and debunk myself in the other one. HMU republicans...or any government, I like the challenge of lying about somewhere I've never heard of and then debunking myself.

What if, and hear me out, the Democrats win everything, but we just ask 'em not to do any things? It'd be a win-win for the whole country!

I mean after such a polarizing partisan environment in recent years we really need to heal as a nation, and Democrats could do their part by not passing any progressive policies, undoing any of Trump's policies, and leave as many judicial nominations unfilled as possible until the next time a Republican runs the WH.

Mitch McConnell, enemy of democracy?  That Mitch McConnell?  The guy in the senate, right? I think the author got him confused with some other guy that isn't a complete piece of shiat.

But only 'cause Tax-bongo, The Unready and Blah [not my joke] said: "That's a good idea, let's use your bill." I mean... he had no choice.

I think this is a sign of desperation.  These people got their tax cuts and judges, but they're trying to stiff the piper.

Well, that article makes it obvious that the Trump isn't the fascist they wanted, but the one they got; and that its not their fault he was so incompetent that they weren't able to hijack the country and legislate out their opponents like they had wanted to. Now Mr. Murphy here wants Dems to give them a do-over so that they can get the fascist they want in the White House. 

I'm sure the Democrats would be happy to oblige.

Not going to happen with McConnell in charge.  Republicans want a say in a Biden administration, they can vote him out of his leadership position.

This idea is not only stupid but horribly written.

The emotional vote is easy. Throw 'em all out! After many decades in politics I didn't expect much from the GOP-politicians in both parties orbit the lone sun of holding office at all costs and especially fear primaries. But even as cynical as I am, I was disappointed at the speed of the surrender as the Republican party crumpled into a worthless scrap ball faster than a Trump University degree.

It's not like we were asking these federal paycheck cashiers to go land on Anzio beach or do something hard. Are the cheap haircuts in the Senate barber shop really worth such a complete abandonment of principle? Yet, they disappointed: ethically, ideologically, constitutionally. They deserve the consequences. It's appealing to throw them out and start again.


Just awful writing.

Subby, do not use a match with this. You want to be able to taste the fine caramel notes of GOP hypocrisy  or the subtle rosehip of corruption. If you use a match it will just be spoiled by the acrid sulfur notes of the match. Use some hemp rope, or better yet get a glass rod red hot, and plunge it into the bowl for some pure flavor.

Filibustered

his own bill. Because the "brilliant legislator" failed to realize that while democrats have many motivations (sometimes good, sometimes bad) fark the other team at all costs isn't one of them.

I'm not 100% where the vital organs are for vampires so I say just keep staking until it stops moving

Everything McConnell has ever done has been to get more power or maintain his power. He does not care about what's good for the country.
 
2020-08-05 4:04:58 PM  
This is the second article in two days in which some conservative thinks it'll be a good idea for Democrats to give up power in return for nothing.

Children in cages. 2975 Americans dead in Puerto Rico. 159,000 Americans dead from Covid-19. Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, JCPOA, leaving WHO, abandoning the Kurds, freeing ISIS, removing troops from Germany, giving nuclear tech to Saudi Arabia, etc.

Knowing our luck Mitch will live to be 100 and still have himself wheeled into chambers to vote, what is it about pure evil that keeps people alive?
