    When the other side begins to form a circular firing squad, the best option is to just “stand back and stand by.” Best role in this performance is spectator.

    And make sure you have your phones on record and plenty of popcorn.

    Republicans wanted to have a civil war? Turns out the only civil war is among themselves.

    Not coincidental that the Dems are portrayed as the blue (pro-Union) troops, while the Republicans are shown as the racist, authoritarian Confederates that so many of them actually are. The only thing missing is the Confederate battle flag, many of which were flying at their big party on January 6 a couple of years back.

    The popcorn is a nice touch. And if the House GOP starts to taper off, the Democrats are prepared to intervene (or at least run the idea up the flag pole) to assist the current Speaker in keeping his post.

    I can see a few scenarios where the next Speaker is Democratic—not likely, of course, but considering some Republicans have left the House entirely at the sheer raw stupidity and dishonesty of the Traitor Trump cult, a very long shot but NOT an impossibility.

    What’s the big deal?

    The MAGAt party is adhering to their true objective, obtaining and keeping power.

    Since they each lust for power, they cannot share any of it, even with each other.


    They really do want chaos everywhere — at the border, the justice system, elections, and government in general.


    They do agree on one thing, though: It’s OKAY If A Republican Does It.

    While there is certain measure of schadenfreude watching the RWNJ’s picnic on each other, the Dems would very much prefer to govern. So for the most part they see the collapse of the republicons into traitorous, violent, terrorist, russian puppet magats as a tragic thing, not something to celebrate.

    After each issue, think “He got Caught”.Cheated in Law school. Lied about his grades. Plagiarized his speeches. Lied about his GPA. Sold V.P. Office to China. Sold his V.P. office to Ukraine. Committed Quid Pro Qup to save his crackhead son. Framed General Flynn. Rigged the 2020 election. There is no doubt that this guy is a crook, but he sucks at it.

    Even the most casual observer realizes that today’s Republican Party is a failure. The adults have fled into retirement or other fields, leaving the children to throw tantrums and mug for the camera or their leader, Trump. Nobody should be surprised at this. It was the inevitable outcome of electing fools, con men or women, and the selfish who just want to score a buck for themselves.

    Furthermore, when confronted with the awareness that their ship is sinking, they double down on the absurd instead of actually trying to govern.

    The Nation is watching.

    I saw this in the NYTimes this morning. It made me laugh out loud, so I wanted to share it with you.

    “In our Trump-era politics, there’s always the question of how crazy is too crazy — how disruptive and extreme an elected official can get before becoming so embarrassing that members of her own team feel compelled to abandon her?

    Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene seems to have reached that outer limit. Again.

    It’s not simply that Ms. Greene has taken such a Putin-pleasing approach to Russia’s war in Ukraine (Ukrainian Nazis? Really?) that the term “useful idiot” feels unavoidable. She has, in very little time, undermined the influence of her party’s entire right flank, driving less unhinged Republicans — most notably the House speaker, Mike Johnson — to brush back her and her ilk like the poo-flinging chaos monkeys they are."*

    Yet the regressive party is still very close in the polls and will win in many races. This fact and having the scotus in their pocket are what still make the regressive party a very real danger to democracy. Do not let your guard down.

    And this is highly accurate of the way that the parties have somehow switched allegiances over the years. The Democrats were once the party of White Supremacy and the Religious Dogma. Now it’s the Republicans.

    This is a work of art! The philosophy of both sides is faithfully represented in the drawing. Remember that the views that the dems espouse has always been on the right side of history – against slavery, against isolationism, for civil rights, prochoice, etc. Know your history.

    Interestingly, RED used to be the designation of Russia – the enemy. And somehow, RED became the designated color for the Republican Party. And Trump’s overlong tie is almost always RED, and we all know what that means.

    In fairness, RED is also (worldwide) the color of unionized workers – often worn by politicians jonesing for the worker’s votes, but there’s not a lot of billionaires interested in paying fair wages now, are there? That’s where the Republicans get their biggest donations.

    For its association with the Confederate South, the LOSERS of the Civil War, the Republican Party’s designated color should be GRAY.

    BLUE, as in True Blue, is the designated color of the Democratic Party, as it very well should be, thank you very much.

    If you’ve the time, google: “Which states are net losses for federal funds.”

    Had the South prevailed in the Civil War and formed their own country, I submit the “Wall” would have been built on the Mason-Dixon Line to help keep the starving Southern losers from reaching the prosperous north, but “Frankly, Scarlett, I wouldn’t give a flying fig!”

    I have heard it straight from the mouths of some when I was down South 24 years ago, and saw it emblazoned on the side of Stone Mountain; “The South will rise again!” More than before, I think they mean it, in the worse way. If they want out, then let the infected members go this time.
