I thought Congress didn't have to worry about using up their vacation days.
 
2021-02-27 5:04:15 AM  
That will make for some excellent campaign mail next fall.

"When working families in (state) needed help surviving the virus, Congressman Q abandoned his job and went to Fascism Spring Break to listen to Ted Cruz and lick the taint of a golden idol of Trump."

And I mean it's mail they'll send out themselves during the primary.

So naive, subby.

In 2 weeks they will still be lying.

"I feel fine"
"The test was negative"
"I had a great time at CPAC"

Hold the vote anyway and count them as absent.
 
2021-02-27 5:53:07 AM  
Seems they lied and filed a false letter. Their vote should not count.

Yes, he was 18 years old. No, I didn't pay him to have sex.
I care a great deal about my constituents.
Trump actually won the election.

Well, technically, hypocrisy HAS taken up permanent residence in the Republican Party, so I guess it IS a tenant there.
 
2021-02-27 6:35:10 AM  
I mean, why shouldn't they? it's not like they're goings to face any penalties.  Yeah, I'm sure the dems will run an ad or something unless its considered too uncivil.

The Fascist Party seems to be earning a lot of income from hypocrisy. Maybe it does in fact pay rent?

due to the ongoing public health emergency

Hot take: they're not lying.

What you've all failed to take into account is that they're taking time off to exacerbate the crisis.
They didn't say otherwise and you didn't ask, snowflake!
This ongoing health emergency ain't gonna "ongoing" itself you know.

/even I'm not sure if I'm serious anymore

I expect them to be fine. "Vaccines change your DNA" is just pandering to the rubes. They're already covered by both shots.

Fascists, yes. Christofascists, I don't think so.
These are the folks that worship an orange jackass and even made a golden idol, not followers of Jesus.

I don't see the reasoning behind the lie. What purpose are they supposedly achieving for telling such an easily provable lie? It makes zero sense.

I mean come on, republicans lie with ease like breathing, but this one makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

Could someone please enlighten me, and everyone else, about it?

One more thing, look how very easy it is for them to now use covid as an excuse, after 1+ years of denying its existence.

It's an astounding absurdity.

I... don't suppose we will be seeing any Republicans in the Senate ducking out of town to CPAC to avoid having to vote against relief for their constituents?

They know they'll get away with it because Democrats are too chicken-sh*t to do anything about it. It's a form of dominance. And Democrats let them do it, every time.

And just exactly how do the dems have any control over what each individual house or senate Republicans? Does being in the majority mean they can exact punishment over these folks? Are you aware of some congressional rule that gives dems authority?

Not to mention your "response" has nothing to do with my questions.

Who says the wives are frigid?  They probably love getting railed while their husbands watch or are off playing with their guy friends (NTTAWWT, except the hypocrisy).

The ability to lie with no consequence is something that conservatives champion. The lie is not to create a false truth, but to demonstrate power.
