No Future for the GOP?

The Trumptons are desperately trying to spin the Durham Report into something. As far as I can tell they created it in a desperate attempt to find some crimes to charge the Dems with and I believe it lasted longer and cost way more than the Mueller Report and led to one minor indictment of some guy none of us have ever heard of. Now that it's finally ground to a halt as the dampest of squibs which achieved the square root of fuck all the GOP are trying to claim it proves all kinds of weird nonsense, despite the lack of tangible, actual, you-know, crimes.

Big news from a few days...
And it's looking like a real nailbiter as she's persuaded three other members of congress to sign on to them.

Because of the vax.
I wonder if it was like this when potatoes were introduced to Europe. Like, someone had diarrhoea or died from cholera or something, and everyone was like "Remember when our Alice ate one of them new-fangled 'po-tay-toes' about five years ago? Must be that."

Yes, that was before they worked out they had to cook them first.

Not entirely sure the experimental gene therapy is as natural a phenomenon as the humble spud; the former is literally new and very much fangled

Imagine the lad dies before getting to make another substantial public appearance and this is the abiding memory of him imprinted on the world, shitting himself on a 30 second twitter clip looking like droopy off looney tunes

To be honest he will have to do something pretty spectacular to stop this anyway may as well just shoot himself out of a cannon into a wall to regain his mystique

Well I'll let you know if I start to grow any new limbs, heads, etc.

Not sure what thread to put this in but I suppose that we need to mention that McCarthy has opened an impeachment investigation into Biden.

This is interesting cos his tweet saying that it's completely unacceptable to do that without a vote is still on his twitter, I think he also sponsored a motion to censor Pelosi for doing that, and so people are saying he's a hypocrite - I actually think that he can say "I said it was wrong but Pelosi did it anyway so why can't I?". It's kinda more relevant that he said a few weeks ago that he wouldn't do it.

The other thing is that they have no evidence and they are trying to use the inquiry to find the evidence they would normally have at this stage.

But in a sense that doesn't matter cos it's pure theatre, they just don't have the votes to remove Biden, but they will be able to say that both Biden and Trump were investigated for impeachment - maybe even that both were impeached depending on how things pan out.

Really it's just muddying the waters cos any complaint that it's just politically motivated with no evidence will be met with the claim that Biden is doing the same to Trump.

Now of course you and I and McCarthy and all the politicians on either side plus the talking heads who will make the argument know full well that there is no equivalence between McCarthy launching a pointless inquiry against a political enemy with no evidence, and a number of real criminal indictments made on the recommendation of neutral grand juries after they were presented with actual evidence, but again that doesn't matter because the arguments are being made for the benefit of people who are too stupid to tell the difference and also those who deliberately refuse to see it.

There's something quite... funny let's say... about people lying and making arguments they know don't work, for the benefit of people who know they are lying but who pretend to believe them anyway.

Literally doing "first they came for the communists"

Damn only just saw this. Absolutely crazy. Can a state just declare people with certain beliefs persona non grata like that? Even in such a hilarious way? It especially seems weird to say that people are committing a thought crime by supporting the government.

"First I came for the Communists..."
