No, no. One's the "evil" shoulder pixie; the other is the "insanity" shoulder pixie. The difference seems important.

They're 1000% in on the ruse, which is why DOJ needs to start handing out indictments to sitting congressmen for taking part in a criminal conspiracy.

Well, it is a "both sides are bad" headline, but in this case both sides are Republican. This makes the decision whom to vote for very difficult indeed...

Look man, if your home gets broken into and your family is murdered by hippies doing witchy shiat while you are at work, it's your own fault for not having a good home defense. The people who committed the murders should not be held responsible nor should the cult leader who sent them.

They're both evil and would never get a vote from me.  On the other hand, one of them happens to know what the Constitution is, knows what elections are and is at least recognizable as an "American."  The other is so dumb she doesn't know that Medicare is a form of socialized medicine.

Stefanik's motivation comes from the pure, gormless ambition of someone who saw an opportunity and didn't care what she had to do or say to take it. Not unlike what we are also witnessing with JD Vance, she is trying to speak crazy but it clearly isn't her native language. She's no Michelle Bachmann. Parroting hatred, ignorance, and insanity is still the outcome but done clumsily.

As with most things GOP, it all comes down to self-interest, particularly on the issue of life after politics. We see these pivots to crazy in politicians who realize that that it will be bleak for them, with Lindsey Graham being the archetypal example.

Stefanik was looking at needing to fight over a newly-drawn district in 2022 with the likely outcome being KOed in the primary by a Trumpier challenger and ending up as let another forgotten GOP 'moderate' crushed under the wheel of Trumpism. After her pivot to crazy, the primary will likely be much smoother sailing for her. Even if things somehow go wrong for her electorally, she probably thinks she's earned a place for herself close to the Trump throne.

Cheney, on the other hand, has different priorities. If Cheney is ousted she can expect a cushy landing in corporate America, with this last hurrah on the Jan. 6th commission unduly redeeming an otherwise toxic political career that is directly responsible for paving the way for Trump in the first place.

I think they mean dye, as in tanning spray.  You cast it upon the body to achieve a youthful, healthy orange glow.

Systemic floral dye in action.

This dye differs from conventional food colorings and fabric dyes.

Post tangentially related to the conspiracy notes thread and driving while black thread. There's no wrong threads for this post.

To say the dye is set in the fabric means it won't rinse out. It's there forever.

The metaphor for America model of ugly historic and ongoing racism relates to a lunatic who was unwittingly trying to weaponize roses against the "gay ice cream" hating man in 2011 long before he ever bothered the ice cream makers.

The account is long deleted. It doesn't matter, who coined what terms or set off what where, the actions of those in power who have the responsibility to behave in the nation's best interest are what matters. Ben Franklin wanted all Americans to be shiatposting trolls that and have wide fields of science based knowledge generating brain grabbing jokes littered around where news is read. Silence Dogood told me so personally.

The person was just thankful to speak freely as an American and install art while it was timely.

I've not studied her closely enough to have a strong opinion one way or the other.

I stand by my thesis, but concede the difference might be regarding cosplay role on one part rather than sincere character.
