Funny; that pile of human excrement from Rifle, CO has been pretty quiet.

Unless MGT just clubbed and ate her.

I hope the Democrats bloody knuckles in 2020 got them ready for 2022... that was just a small battle in the war that is ahead. 2022 is going to be, for lack of a better term... LIT

LOL. He thinks they can scrub their social media, maybe?
 
2021-06-14 2:55:01 PM  
I'm OK with this.  Either it ramps down the crazy, or Mitch & Co get shiatcanned down the line.

It's fun watching these people eat each other alive...

The barn has already been burned to the ground.  Good luck closing the door.

In other words: Mitch McConnell plans to be the *bong* in Blazing Saddles' "The sheriff is a nig*bong*" scene.
 
2021-06-14 3:13:34 PM  
Mitch wants you to deny Trump won! Don't let him!
 
2021-06-14 3:14:44 PM  
Good luck putting that genie back in the bottle.....

Mitch is a man of long-term (evil) vision.  It seems shortsighted of him to think he has any control over these chaos turds.
 
2021-06-14 3:14:56 PM  
I thought all the Q craziness was a feature not a bug. What changed?
 
2021-06-14 3:15:20 PM  
Yeah, Moscow Mitch, no way Trump lets you get away with denying him flattery.
 
2021-06-14 3:15:41 PM  
LOL! He'll find out that threat means nothing.
 
2021-06-14 3:16:05 PM  
Oh sweet, summer subby. McConnell promising to do whatever it takes to win doesn't mean he's going to defend the sane candidates.

Yeah and I don't think he's naive, exactly.

But this is a huge crack that they're widening and apparently they think it is worth the risk.

I think they're gambling a bigger split and might even lose what control these *COUGH* 'moderate Republicans think they have.

I guess this is a long way of saying "let them fight".

Yup, this is not about fighting QAnon at all.  If Moscow Mitch thinks a HTG-type nutbar can win a district, he'll offer his full support. This is just to avoid something like Alabama nominating a diddler for Senate in 2018 so a Democrat wins a very red state.
 
2021-06-14 3:20:19 PM  
oh good they can do all all of the character assassination and name calling early, so the democratic candidates can just ride the talking points into the general.

Yeah the issue the gop now faces is that their core voters enjoyed the trump brand "100% genuine loud parts" too much and now they can't muzzle the crazies without upsetting the trumpers. The gop has built an absolute juggernaut at state levels by realizing they don't need moderates to win if they can drive turnout from the crazies.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) warned on Monday that he and his allies are willing to step into Republican Senate primaries to try to prevent a candidate they view as unelectable in November 2022 from advancing.

History seems to have proven that these people (ie; conspiracy driven, bigoted, chaos goblin Republicans) are electable.

That needs a 2024 pile of turds.

bwahahaha,

All MTG has to do is challenge him to an arm-wrestling contest where the loser has to STFU.

three outcomes:
1) McTurtle ducks the challenge, MTG continues to derp.
2) McTurtle accepts the challenge and loses, MTG continues to derp
3) McTurle accepts the challenge and wins. MTG continues to derp anyway, because a republican has no shame.

Enjoy the party Mitch.
 
2021-06-14 3:29:59 PM  
He plans to change the Republican party he helped shape without taking any responsibility for shaping the party?
 
2021-06-14 3:32:55 PM  
I look forward to Mitch being called a RINO and a member of the deep state.
 
2021-06-14 3:33:28 PM  
What else would they be running on? The quiet parts are their actual stances.
 
2021-06-14 3:34:10 PM  
Yeah, they seem like people who can be reasoned with.
 
2021-06-14 3:34:15 PM  
Only a turtle would be so slow to realize the problem now.

The party is all people saying the quiet parts out loud. You were too slow and too afraid to remove them and now if you try to do anything you're going to alienate most of the base you have left.

Someone roll the leopard over so it can reach Mitch's face. Christ, that's a fat leopard.

Bobert is in a bad spot.  Biden's infrastructure bill would be a HUGE boost for her district; it would put her biggest city - Pueblo - back in business. But how can she be a rapid Trumper if she votes for Biden's biggest initiative?
 
2021-06-14 3:45:28 PM  
He's defying Trump and betraying his party. He must be stopped by real patriots.

If only the GOP had taken this aggressive gatekeeper role back in the 2016 primaries.
 
2021-06-14 4:45:44 PM  
You mean like last time, and the time before that?

What he wants is the RNC's cut of the grift. Nothing more. Nothing less.
 
2021-06-14 5:34:06 PM  
If Moscow Mitch thinks that he's going to stand against any candidate endorsed by Donald Trump no matter how unelectable they are, he should think again. It's not his party any more. It's Donald Trump's party.

They've been doing that for years and it hasn't hurt him. He has his fingers on so many purse strings and scales that the ruling republican class knows he is untouchable, even if they won't say it out loud. Setting morality aside, mitch is the most effective Senate President in the modern era, and his party knows it, he is almost singlehandedly responsible for keeping them in power. Not even the Trump cult seems able or even willing to break his power, and they've been taking down other republicans left and right.

Difficulty: they can't shut up. GQP politicians are are proud of their dementia and ignorance.

MTG did visit the Holocaust museum and followed it with some weird sort of "apology" thing afterwards.

Mitch hasn't seen one election cycle on Trump's shiat list though.  Trump turned on Mitch because Yertle didn't overturn the election.  If the turtle lives long enough to run for office again, he might get primaried by a Trumphumper and actually face somewhat of a challenge for re-election.
