Seliger decided to retire

He's pissed off at the GQP and he's going out swinging. It's good that he's being honest about the redistricting but it's certainly not evidence of any shift towards truthfullness in general by the GQP, and the indication is he didn't give a shiat about this stuff when he thought he still had a political career.

Thank goodness for all of this Republican speaking out against corruption.

Seems like he is out of farks to give and wants to get away from TFG and try to salvage something from the GOP before it eats itself and everything around it. I guess he believes they should change their message if they want voters and not find ways to prevent them from voting

The call is coming from inside the house. Our greatest enemy was the Republicans all along.

Once we defeat them, we can cut out defense budget by 90% and finally have safe roads, universal healthcare and free schools for kids!!

This is great!

He probably won't be invited to the Scalia events celebrating Texas being free of the voting rights act that made investigation by  the feds mandatory.  Now the investigations are based on need.

All these struggles over redistricting convince me the time is here for trans-districting. Let voters declare what district they 'identify' as a resident of.

great another "Former GOP" to make the rounds on MSNBC to give us talking point about how the GOP is still salvageable.  Will he be speaking at the next Dem Conference?

Joe Scarborough is starting to sound a lot more republican* these days...

Oh no, you can't just reallocate defense spending for domestic and social spending.

You might if you disguise it as defense spending or get enough "small business" support.

For roads you could say it's to ensure troops and supplies can move around the country when fighting Chinese or migrant caravans who try to invade.

Or you could say we are building the roads but they will all be handed over to toll companies so you don't have to worry about big government managing streets.

Same for schools.  Claim there is a knowledge gap between our troops and China's and maybe you can get school funding, but frankly I don't think that'll work.

You probably have a very good chance if you say you're going to give the Devos family a bunch of money in the form of school vouchers so private charters can replace public schools.

Of course republicans are going to be upset. What republican ever wants to hear truth?

republicans are like a one stringed cigar box banjo with no frets played by brain damaged cat. They just strum the same awful note over and over again.

Egads, how out of touch must he be to think that Republicans still care about voting laws?

Agreed. I watch Morning Joe every weekday. He has DEFINITELY changed his tune. Why Mika married his dumb ass is beyond my comprehension. JFC.

I really don't understand that one either other than they were work spouses first and just leaned into it?

One was raised around power and the other seeks it.  Symbiotic perhaps?   I just feel for the photographer that has to shoot all those posed pics of them going into and out of commercial breaks.

I don't have cable, is he becoming a Trumper / QAnon cult member or leaning into the never Trump why can't Dems just move right and become what I thought the GOP was movement?

the latter is a good approximation.  It just seems really abrupt lately.  An effort to rehab some of the GOP like Hogan.

Night Train to Wakanda: GOP SOP for the QTP in the OPP


Well qualified to represent the LBC

/ Since the VP is such a VIP maybe we should keep the PC on the QT so it won't leak to the VC and the VP might go MIA and we'll all be put on KP.
