They are the Limbo Masters. No bar is to low.

they would would scoop out a trench with their vestigial little handstumps.

18. Bars, schmars...

They cornered the world supply of ACME cartoon portable holes. Warehouses full of them.

Any time it seems they can't go lower, the unbox another one, slap it down on the floor, and dive in.

I wish their "constituents" were smart enough to understand the R's are all about BS, too.

So add his name to the list of Dem's who speak out.

7. We may be looking at our next President.

There's been a lot of talk of Nancy Pelosi retiring from her post as Democratic leader.

If Dems retake the House, and truly earth-shaking evidence of Putin's control of both Cheeto and Dense Pence (through his brother, Ed) emerges, the Speaker would have to be sworn in.

It's unlikely - but certainly possible.

Republicans looking at it are probably either rolling their eyes or snickering

24. Much of politics is "theatrics" period.

That's all too many of the electorate understands and unfortunately, we Dems MUST use it to reach people. We MUST get folks on our side.

Even FDR used some "theatrics". And bravo for him.

27. Any suggestions to accomplish such would be appreciated by Cong. Hoyer,

I'm sure; after all, he's the dean of the Maryland Congressional delegation, was first elected in a special election on 19 May 1981 and served as the House Majority Leader from 2007 to 2011.[1][2] He had previously served as House Minority Whip from 2003 to 2007, and was reelected to that post in 2011. These positions make him the second-ranking figure in the House Democratic Leadership hierarchy. As of December 5, 2017 he is the most senior Democrat serving in the House of Representatives following the resignation of John Conyers.

13. No ..they do.

 

No one knows the whole thing. But each congressman knows which companies are going to benefit with what he/she individually helped. They know it very well .. because that's whom they will turn to for election money

while still cutting domestic spending.

While he doesn't actually represent me, he's pretty close, WOULD represent me if I were registered where I live MOST of the time (and am located right now,) but have kept my registration in a closer to DC district where I live part-time.

old school Democrat, not someone so dramatic and certainly effective.

They don't care about the rest, because it's tit for tat. Pork for me...pork for you.
