The Speaker of the House is who appoints committee chairs and members so keeping the looney toons off has merit.

"... Peace through Strength!!!"

His calls for violence are getting more and more blatant.

Yeah, this "rumor" has been around (and here) for about the last week.

With no background or research on my part, if the possibility freaks the tiny-handed orange pile of shait out ... I'm all for it.

Just moving the entire "freedom" caucus offices to the Ford HOB would be humourous and the only chance of the House doing anything that needs to done requires someone other than Kev as Speaker.

The only upside really to any of the prospective GQP leadership that'll appear in January is that they will be all shiatshow all of the damned time.

A ongoing dumpster fire would have a point but if the idea is to eliminate the complete whack jobs from the House then causing an open split in the republican party would work better. If Biggs, MTG Jordan etc are assigned to the administration committee or no committee at all, the attacks will caused a new TFG lead party and the result will be republicans being a permanent minority party.

well, it's Hunter's laptop, impeachments and repeal Obamacare for the next 2 years so we might as well laugh when we're crying.

I would love for them to vote in Nancy Pelosi again for a week and maybe pass a big bill. She then resigns and they pick a sane Republican. Opposite day for owning the libs.

Was that itself a reference to Valley of the Dolls? Because Lee Grant utters nearly the same exact line in that film.

Subby, "Naturally, Trump" are two words never used together -- an unnatural combination.
 
2022-12-04 7:13:13 PM  
We know the rumour is a lie because there are no moderate Republicans, and there haven't been for decades.

Damn. How many times can one guy melt down?
 
2022-12-04 7:13:43 PM  
I put the odds of this happening at slim and none.

But it would be gloriously funny if it did, so I'm willing to put a fiver down on 0. Spin the wheel!
 
2022-12-04 7:14:35 PM  
That is a spoiler play meant to scare the Freedom Caucus into falling in line & voting for  McCarthy on the 1st ballot. And it's a good, smart move on McCarthy's part. McCarthy or they get worse.

An impeachment Republican for Speaker? Make it so.

This will be the worst thing for Donald JOHN Trump since KKYe asked him to be his VP.

What I'd love to know is WTF are any of them doing to actually EARN the income the taxpayers are paying them? Enough of all this BS. Either show up and do your f*cking job like you are expected to do it or get fired like any of the rest of us would be.

I always found her to be uniquely attractive in BB.

Then one night I was just watching random old movies I'd find online. Well to my surprise she was one of the main characters in one. She seemed to be in her 20's at the time. I cannot recall much of anything about the movie aside from it was kind of B level thriller/drama and it being half decent.

What I DO remember is being totally taken aback when she got completely naked. Like not even part of the plotline. Just her taking her clothes off to jump in the shower.

It was a pleasant surprise.

Absolutely no idea what it was called. I was borderline dystopian and like she was on the run from the baddies.

Republicans used to be known as the union busting party.

Now it's a reputation that Democrats share as well.

If this was serious they wouldn't wait for McCarthy to fail, they (the allegedly moderate Republicans) would vote against him from the get go.

Bith Set Me Up: moderate Republicans


DND nerd time... Moderate Republicans are Neutral Evil.  They made a deal with the Chaotic Evil wing of the party and now that the Chaotic Evils are inconvenient, they want to tame them.

You do not tame Chaotic Evil.  The Chaotic Evils don't care about keeping things together enough that they're worth having power over, they just want that power.  And to hurt people they don't like.

Depends on what you mean by moderate. If you mean policy, there is none.

But if you mean commitment to democracy and the rule of law, then almost none, but there are still a few.

Those "Moderate Republicans" are trying to turn the Democrats into what the GOP was in the 1980s and 1990s.
