In fairness, it might divide Republicans between those who want to return to civilized and democratic norms in government, and those who want to continue the GOP's scorched earth and obstructionist tactics.

I hope it splits the republican party right in half.
 
2021-01-24 10:51:39 AM  
yeah, because trump worked 24/7 to unite the country...
 
2021-01-24 10:56:19 AM  
Well now I'm really on the fence about voting for Joe Biden.
 
2021-01-24 11:03:20 AM  
How would you objectively measure more/greater unity?  Any suggestions?  Will Biden's approval poll itself be the litmus test?

I could address each point the article's author Michael Goodwin makes individually. But I don't have the time nor patience to do so here. So I'll focus on the more glaring bigoted statement.

FTA: Biden also signed a radical order letting boys compete in girls' sports events if they identify as transgender. The practice already is causing an uproar and now Biden has put the federal government on the side of glaring unfairness.

Goodwin assumes transgenders will always carry over traits from one gender to the other, in this case, increased muscle mass. I am not an expert on transgenders nor am I a parent of one. But, for friends who have transgender girls who came out to their families before puberty, I understand the kids are administered medications to block puberty to "allow patients more time to solidify their gender identity, without developing secondary sex characteristics." Sadly, Goodwin does not understand transgender youth and falls into prejudicial speculation, rather than researching this subject like a real journalist.

fark conservatives.  There's not a dram of dignity or honor among the lot.

Get them fired.  Boycott them.  fark their wives and bugger their husbands.  Humiliate them, mock them, and ruin them.
 
2021-01-24 1:43:29 PM  
Because "unity" tends to mean "support Biden's agenda." This is going to degenerate into "elections have consequences" and that will be the end of whatever grace period the GOP might have extended to Mr. Biden. Cloture votes galore the next two years, and then the Republicans regain the Senate. We've seen this movie before.

Objection. There are no Republicans who believe in civilized norms. The saner Republicans have long since left. What is left of the GOP is a fascist party.
 
2021-01-24 1:46:23 PM  
At least they're finally being transparent that they are just going to steadfastly refuse to work with them. Here's hoping that Biden's administration gets sick of this shiat soon and just tells them to sit and spin

edmo: All we heard the week before inauguration was the GOP demanding unity. Where'd they go?


Nowhere.  Unity was just their codeword for "Give us everything."
 
2021-01-24 1:46:46 PM  
It's not a belief, it's a line.

The transition that Trump accomplished is to drive more and more into the view that the truth does not matter at all. No anchor to truth, logic, or reason. Just claim something and then pretend it makes sense. BS your way through.
 
2021-01-24 1:46:48 PM  
You know what? fark off. Just leave. I need an eternity of biatchy Republican grievance theater like I need a hole in the head. 245 years is not a bad run.
 
2021-01-24 1:47:51 PM  
Those who use the term unity in bad faith and only mean it as placate me or I will pitch a huge fit can f*ck all the way off. They have no interest in meeting anyone half way on anything.

The Republicans can't lose the crazy 30% to some other party. The numbers don't work any more, so they went full personality cult with Trump and now they have a chance to do the smart thing and jettison him from politics.

I'm terrified they will listen to the crazy, loud people and let him keep playing as a chaos agent for as long as he lasts.

If that's the case we need to get to the heart of the Russian infection of the Republican Party, and get them all out while we can. We need to realize the larger agents against us and come together as Americans instead of letting the Russians play us against each other.

Biden wants America to unify against hate.  The GOP is built on hate.

To quote Lindsay "Ladybugs" Graham, "Elections have consequences."

Your party had time to get its crap done, to make improvements and make your case to the voters. You juiced the economy, ran up the deficit, played a pandemic like it wasn't a real threat. Now, we are on the cusp of a recession, 400,000 Americans are dead and you've spooked a portion of your base into terrorism.

Sorry, you all get to play the minority in politics and if all you're going to do is complain and moan then go for it. The voters buying into that are diminishing and Georgia is a sign of things to come. If Texas can flip in the next decade, the GOP is done.  Good thing history will remember you all hitching your party to a reality TV con who accomplished so much in 4 years.

It's just easier to assume that transphobic arguments from conservatives are ALWAYS in bad faith, cynical attempts to manipulate the fear and ignorance of people susceptible to culture war bullshiat.

If we flip Texas to DNC, then the GOP will never win another presidency.

But they will still maintain a massive advantage in the Senate, and can, via careful management of State government, maintain the advantage in the House from Gerrymandering.

I can give you a brief summary of TFA:

Silly me, I'm still curious about this grace period Dems have extended to the insurrectionists currently befouling Congress.

Republicans want the "Unity" of one country under indefinite GOP rule.

They are technically correct, we need justice first. They are not thinking this through.
 
2021-01-24 2:09:00 PM  
This kinda shiat is why the GOP needs to be kicked to the curb.  Four days in and the news is full shiat that shows they're right back to the kind of bad faith, double-standard, IOKIYAR/INOKIYAD bullshiat that kept the last two Dem administrations from accomplishing anything, even if they were originally GOP goals.

Fk these bastards.  They're not governing, they're pandering and politicking.  Get them the fk out and let the adults clean up the mess their last guy made.

Their last five guys.
