Open Thread | This Is Who the GOP Is

Never forget

There is no such thing as a decent Republican.😒

They took 15 votes to get a Speaker. They have no interest in ACTUALLY GOVERNING.

President Biden knows this. He is prepared.

They wanna clown. Make them pay for clowning.

Ike had them nailed decades ago:

    By “done well” he means “fastest selling nonfiction book in UK history.” Which since the British media has been telling us for decades how “thick” Harry is… I would be too embarrassed to admit that aloud if I was a professional writer, too.

    The Sussexes were radio silent from Jan2020 until Jan2021, the attacks, lies, and stalking never stopped. Now those same people who kept piling on, want you to believe if only they would be “quiet” and “go away” they will leave them alone. Only an ignoramus would believe that.

    Meghan made the most trips in the relationship. Furnished Nott Cott. Bought her own wedding and reception dresses. Her own clothes as a senior royal. Then they told her she should be grateful to do the work for free. They really want Meghan to have DUST.

    I hate it when people say “urban” or “inner city people” when what they really mean is Black people. Those are dog whistles y’all and have been for a really long time

    Watching #PrinceHarry blow up #CamillaParkerBowles is awesome to watch. Watching her media familiars trying to muddy his message…hilarious! Proving him right every step of the way. More than 20 years of reputation management blown to bits in minutes.

    New: Rep. Buddy Carter confirms to me that his Fair Tax Act will get its first-ever floor vote as part of speaker talks. Bill abolishes IRS, eliminates tax code, replacing income taxes with consumption tax – rolling back pieces of GOP tax law

    It was a demand of the 20 holdouts

    Man reading some of the comments in my friend’s thread about White Board Wilma…yeah its clear Black Women will be on our own again the next few years. Too many “allies” get easily pulled in by stunts ignoring substance. You all waste more energy arguing with us than voting.

    I think Harry & Charles could enjoy a long distance father/son relationship. If Harry truly wants a father/son relationship with Charles, he cannot be a working royal or live in the UK. Charles is too delicate to share the same space as Harry.

    So William would control Harry’s income/expenses in the near future given KCs age. William irrationally hates Meghan and is physically abusive to Harry. How does anyone think it’s feasible that they should have stayed and been under complete control of an abuser?

    Imagine the criticism (with an unsubtle hint of racism) from the yt left/Dems if Black legislators behaved like Katie Porter and AOC.

    Yet ⬜ folks want to prop up Porter (who barely won her seat) as Feinstein’s replacement.

    🧵 Too often “professionalism” is the silent demand to conform to white, class-specific culture. It often means to be silent about your mistreatment, to smile when you are slapped, to do as you are told, to bend to whims, fears & fragility of others. It means white over everyone

    Both the @AdamSchiff and @RoKhanna camps are saying now is not the time for 2024 politics, not when California is coping with days and days of deadly storms. Their focus is on the current state of emergency, and suggest Katie Porter’s timing may be a bit tone deaf.
