Good. I like Kinzinger. I don't agree with him on many things, but he's an honorable guy.
 
2021-07-22 10:44:56 AM  
Good, he'll be fair.

Wait, McCarthy just removed the remaining GQPers from the committee after Pelosi axed Jordan and Banks.

Isn't this 'bipartisan' thing D.O.A. now?

Yes, this one... let sound the trumpets, and unleash the hounds of war.

Qpublicans: Be more nonpartisan!
Pelosi: Ok, Cheney and Kinzinger.
Qpublicans: No. Not like that.

It was to start with.  You can't have insurrectionists investigate an insurrection.

I wonder what his next move will be.

Exactly. Let's say you're going to prosecute a murder. You don't put the accused murderer on a team with the prosecutor in order to be 'fair'.

There will be at least two republicans on the committee. that makes it bipartisan by definition, regardless of what Qevin says.

Picking out drapes after getting kicked out of leadership of the Republican minority.  Or, after being defunded, then... so on and so forth.
He is playing these hands *badly* to become Speaker.

I am really curious who is next.  Cheny herself?
 
2021-07-22 11:09:35 AM  
So I'm thinking the announcement about the other three will happen Friday?

It'd be a nice little gift going into the weekend.

She should appoint a Republican not currently in office. Maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Real estate, plus hawking bullshiat exercise equipment and supplements.

You know I just thought of something.  By doing this Pelosi has accelerated the fracturing of the Republican party into weeks and not years.

Flailing and screaming about the unfairness of it all! Oh, the pain, the horrible pain of reality smacking him in the face!

McQarthy is so bad at this.
 
2021-07-22 1:37:36 PM  
Kinzinger at least has acknowledged Biden's win and voted for Impeachment -- at least he is dealing in reality.

I see Kinzinger chose violence.

So, no chance of a committee doing anything, because it's staffed with fascists now. If Democrats want to be taken seriously by anyone who isn't a hardcore partisan (which is to say, a worthless asshole), they need to stop collaborating with fascists.

Frozen concentrated orange juice futures, of course... Just ask these guys. Just like, Hooked on Phonics, it worked for them.

If that's true, she might already have the only two republicans available.

Said this from the beginning. McCarthy screwing over Cheney was the dumbest goddamn thing he could have done. Now I hate Cheney as much as anyone, but you never EVER screw over a Cheney. You know damn well daddy is holed in Wyoming with his mechanical heart figuring out ways to destroy the GQP and get his daughter the top spot somehow.

Just read another article that there's a third they're thinking of naming as an assistant to Cheney.  Denver was the last name I think.

McCarthy was trying to pull a fast one -- he was daring Pelosi to accept GOP troublemakers to mess with the committee hearings - to be disruptive. He knew damn well that they would be rejected.

He did not even try to operate in Good Faith.

Cheney and Kinzinger are about to get evicted from the party.

Nah, because the media at large is saying it isn't bipartisan if you only include Republicans who voted to certify the election and voted to convict Trump the second time (or voiced their support for either of these two positions), because they aren't really Republicans.

If Pelosi was really serious, she HAS to give investigative authority to people who say "actually, the people on 1/6 were patriots". That is the benchmark they are looking for for bipartisanship, and will continue to say Democrats have made this partisan for failing to do so.

Well this is certainly a new experience.

It's been bipartisan for a few weeks now and him taking his ball and going home didn't change anything.

He'll have to go to Mar-a-Lago on his knees to find out.

No, not like that.

Well, maybe like that.
