So on a lighter note the US is running out of money. https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/12/politics/mnuchin-congress-letter-debt-crisis/index.html Remember when Republicans bitched about ballooning the deficit. Turns out you actually have to pay for 1.5 trillion in tax cuts, increased customs duties and tariffs along with massive military spending. But it's call cool because Republicans did it just increase the debt ceiling. Ignore when we complained about all of that when Obama was president.

I remember in the last Congress when Schumer (and Pelosi, but Schumer mattered more, at least to the extent of McConnell's unwillingness to kill the legislative filibuster) offered to vote to eliminate the debt ceiling entirely.

The GOP didn't take him up on the offer, and also gave gigantic tax breaks to rich people.

Now watch as the Republicans blame the Democrats for this.

Of course they will; it's their preferred technique for deflecting criticism.

I mean, one idiot in the GOP blamed Nancy Pelosi for the lack of women on the Republican side: https://www.wcia.com/news/capitol-news/davis-blames-pelosi-for-lack-of-women-in-gop/

Quote
“There are too few members of our Republican conference that are women or African-American or are a minority,” the Taylorville Republican told a group of local women who were invited to hear him speak at the Old State Capitol on Monday afternoon.

“I get asked a lot, ‘what do you think as a Republican with the fact that you have many fewer women in your conference today than you ever have?’ he volunteered. “I like to remind people that it is Nancy Pelosi who in many cases spent millions of dollars to elect a male Democrat over a female Republicans in swing districts.”

In fact, Pelosi’s decision to back Democratic men in swing districts did help defeat two Republican women in swing districts, but her political and financial backing also aided in key victories for 17 Democratic women over Republican men in the same year, tilting the scales of Congressional gender diversity more in line with the American population than ever before.

I remember that period of DC Comics.  So 90s it hurt.

Man, imagine if Pelosi was actually the force that they think she is. Would be nice.

The religious right has a habit of assigning superpowers to their enemies, bizarrely enough.

This is your daily reminder that in the minds of at least some Americans, Hillary Clinton is a psychokinetic, capable of astral projection, teleportation, forming doppelgangers of herself, weather control, laying curses and spells, borderline immortality and so on.

And that John Kerry fired a Kamehameha to disrupt a tidal wave.

Imagine if Hillary Clinton was actually the president like Fox News seemed to think for the first few years of Trump's presidency.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Trump just went full on pissed as a newt on cheap booze uncle "go back to where ya come from" on AOC and Ilhan Omar.



Because he's...'outraged' at them calling Pelosi a racist or something.

For fucks sake. He sounds like my rascist uncle who watches fox news all day, and not the president. Oh wait he pretty much is. I can't wait to hear how the right spins this as not racist.

The blatant racism aside, and the fact that he doesn't know this aside... he's not wrong about Somalia, where Rep. Omar was born. That country pretty much doesn't even have a government.

Some might argue he's not wrong about Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's country of birth, either.

AOC was born in New York. Even so Puerto Rico isn't a country. Rashida Tlaib was born in Detroit. Omar hasn't lived in Somalia since she was ten years old. To equate her with a country she hasn't lived in for twenty six years is fucking ridiculous.
