Why goppers say government isn't the answer...

... Because goppers are incapable at at running anything for the overall benefit of the people government is supposed to work for. Goppers have an antagonistic view of government because they fail when they are charged with leading it. They hate Democrats because Democrats are reputed for cleaning up gopper failure. This humiliation fuels their desire to win at any cost. So they lie and make vile racial appeals to the fear of sheltered Whites. That's the ONLY thing goppers do well at. And it still works.

I Wish Pelosi Could be Speaker Forever!

I can respect the fact that people have differing opinions of her. What I don't respect is the spineless moderates who have opposed her out of fear that the Gross Offensive Pigs will use her as an lightning rod. Any powerful person who takes a side will be used as a lightning rod in spite of their gender, but it makes me puke how when progressive women are used as lightning rods, so-called progressives and liberals (men and women) run for cover instead of standing up for them regardless of how extraordinary they may be.

Nancy Pelosi is probably the most successful House speaker in modern history. She will never have to apologize for any of her decisions. She will never suddenly resign because her caucus has become unmanageable. She will not spend her retirement in prison. I only hope the next Democratic leader in the House has a fraction of her discipline.

Ooops. I think I ranted.

Gym Jordan Seated on GOP Terror Probe? Win-Win!

One of many downfalls of the goppers is their inability to know their limits. Tonight, there is sure to be a cheer or two from MAGA Hat Nation with the appointment of Gym Jordan to the select committee charged with investigating the gopper siege on the capitol on January 6. They know that a semi-suited Jordan will dress down a bunch of liberal witnesses called to make Trump look bad with his Rand Paulian perspective distortions and injections of Fox News talking points. At least that's how they see it. What they don't realize is how ugly that kind of crap plays to everyone else who happens NOT to live on Planet Idiot. Every time Jordan mentions Black Lives Matter or Antifa, it will give a member of the majority a chance to remind him that the January 6 Parade of Filth arrived at the capitol from a MAGA rally and not a BLM protest. Gym can very possibly inspire sympathy for Black Lives Matter by failing to get anywhere with his attempts to smear them.

Further, the list of witnesses to be called are bound to be credible and respectable figures here in this galaxy. If you saw the fail of Matt "Indict Me" Gaetz trying give General Mark Milley the Fox News treatment in a lesser House hearing recently, multiply that times the number of witnesses in this terror inquiry. The math is not good for the White Nationalist Caucus.

Their problem is their sclerotic strategy of dominate, humiliate, distort. The problem is the attack to which Jordan was a party was an attack against the very Establishment a great number of people respect. Will it endear goppers to white suburban women when Gymmy shouts down uniformed police who were under attack on 1/6? The answer is no, but he'll give it his best shot. He's essentially there to serve as the attorney to the guy who is having trouble selling out his red state talking tour with Bill O'Reilly. Good luck to him.

With so much bleak news threatening the sky on the horizon with gopper attacks on the Democratic voting process, normal people will have to hope Team Trump pins themselves to the mat as many times as possible. Placing jordan on the 1/6 select committee promises to be just that.

What a Guru Would Tell Democrats on How to Use Power

1. Stop referring to your majority as "slim."
2. Give yourself a week to find bipartisanship on any issue. After that, you're just being trapped into running out the clock.
3. Keep traitors on defense. Call Kevin McCarthy a "Failed Deli Manager." Call the Insurrection "The Republican Insurrection," etc.
4. Resist criticizing members of your own caucus, regardless of how much they irk you (Joe Sinema).
5. Stop letting opportunities to capitalize slide by.
6. Don't let six-plus months go by before investigating an attempted coup.
7. Your opposition is a dwindling sliver of Americans. Republicans can't win the popular vote. Act like it.
8. Act like you WILL expand your majorities in Congress.
9. Keep showing suburban white women pictures of capitol terrorists in Lansing and D.C.
10. Repeat the narrative you want to hear voters repeat. That narrative should declare Democrats as the only legitimate party in existence.

goppers: A Drain on American Society

It's not enough that Republican-led states take money from economically successful blue states in order to keep their ramshackle jurisdictions afloat. Now, their latest campaign of White Spite finds them hogging hospital beds because the South lost the Civil War (I can hear it now: "What's the Civil War got to do with it?" It'll become clear to you soon enough). The anti-vax movement is itself a pandemic and as a result, hard-working tax-paying Democrats are footing the bill for insurrectionists and their sympathizers. It's time to squash whatever notion they hold that they are patriots and remind them what they really are... A DRAIN ON AMERICAN SOCIETY!

More Bad News for goppers

Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, suburban white women aren't afraid of critical race theory. They're afraid of REPUBLICANS.

Help Spread the Word!

If Kevin McCarthy seems out of his depth, rudderless, and incompetent in government leadership it's because his heart is still at his failed Bakersfield deli stand. We can't trust Kevin McCarthy to remember what meat goes on a baloney sandwich. We should not trust him with the legislative agenda of the strongest nation on Earth. Every chance McCarthy was given to demonstrate leadership resulted in failure and if the Insurrection Party takes control of the House of Representatives in 2022, We are doomed! If Kevin McCarthy becomes Speaker of the House, the insurrectionists will have won. We need to send Kevin McCarthy back to Bakersfield where he can be speaker of the deli.

If your concerns are public health, education, the economy, confronting our enemies, the safety of our children, etc., look into the eyes of Kevin McCarthy and you can almost hear him responding "do you want chips with that."

Help spread this message and messages like this - the same way the White Male Nationalist Party has tried to use Nancy Pelosi as their bogeywoman. Kevin McCarthy is an incompetent deli manager taking orders from insurrectionist traitors, not the American People.

NOTE: This is not a slight to deli managers. There are thousands of deli workers who are more capable than Kevin McCarthy.

TRUMP STATES IN CRISIS!

The curious concern of red state creeps over crime in "Democrat-run cities" only brings to light the utter disaster conservative states are mired in. When it comes to statistics that determine quality of life, Republican states represent the bulk of the very bottom. The best way to fix this is to enlighten the Tom Cottons, Marsha Blackburns et al. just what terrible shape the states they represent are in, and the best use of their oversized pie holes is to look homeward and speak to the problems that make their districts a collective national embarrassment.

Below is a series of stats that should humble your Mitch McConnells and Gym Jordans (if they had a shred of character). While there are occasional blue states that mingle among the bottom, it is red states that shine as the worst.

Walter Mondale Has Passed

Source: Axios

Walter Mondale, who transformed the role of U.S. vice president while serving under Jimmy Carter and was the Democratic nominee for president in 1984, died Monday at 93, according to a family spokesperson.

Mondale spoke by phone on Sunday with President Biden and former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, as well as Vice President Harris and Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, said his friend and former campaign staffer Tom Cosgrove. While he and his family believed his death was imminent, after those calls he “perked up.”

'Promising Young Woman' + 'Borat' Emerge as Winners at 73rd WGA Awards

Source: Backstage

In a pre-taped, abbreviated ceremony representative of this atypical film and guilds awards season, the 2021 Writers Guild Awards were presented virtually March 21. The 73rd annual ceremony from the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) and Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) highlighted the guild’s selections for the strongest film and television screenplays of the past year, locking another awards puzzle piece into place ahead of the Oscars.

Following up on her stellar showing of six nominations on the Academy Awards’ recently announced list, Emerald Fennell took home the WGA’s original film screenplay prize for Focus Features’ “Promising Young Woman.” The feminist revenge thriller starring Carey Mulligan has also been nominated at the Directors Guild Awards for Fennell’s direction and at the Screen Actors Guild Awards (where Fennell is also, incidentally, recognized for acting as part of the drama ensemble on “The Crown”).
