Well this desperately shitty, even for today's GOP:
Oh yeah, I heard about the result of the vote. I was just commenting on the appallingly underhand tactic of deliberately misleading voting advice.old news, tea. the pro-choice vote won overwhelmingly on Tuesday, by almost 20 points. a huge wake-up call for conservatives/GOP, since Kansas is a very conservative/GOP-dominated state.
DeSantis used a press conference in Broward county on Thursday to champion the work of the office of election crimes and security, a first-of-its-kind office created this year and charged with investigating voter fraud. Peter Antonacci, the head of that office, said Thursday was a “special day”. “This is the day we begin taking fraud seriously,” he said.
The proposal by Graham, a hardline South Carolina Republican, will be called the “Protecting Pain-capable Unborn Children from Late-term Abortions Act”.
Lindsey Graham just proposed a nationwide abortion ban after 15 weeks.
Seems strange tactics when dems believe they can profit in the mid-terms by focusing the debate on this issue and claiming GOP wanna do just that.
Yeah I'm starting to see this in DAOs too. The people supporting/delegating to governance leaders are generally short-term-oriented and generally are more affected by narratives and confidence (like your points elsewhere about "owning" the interlocutor rather than dialectically engaging with them) than they are by actual work - because seemingly the bulk of the actual work is boring, ineffable stuff like negotiating with relevant parties, pulling strings, effectuating bureaucratic processes, etc.Seems the most effective approach to retaining power is to never actually achieve your stated aims, but to keep talking about them.
