    Wondering how the various election felony charges here compare to those being discussed in Michigan. Politico story Michigan AG calls for special prosecutor in case now involving her Trump-backed opponent

    Michigan’s attorney general is requesting a special prosecutor be named to investigate her Trump-endorsed opponent, citing evidence tying him to a potentially criminal scheme to seize and tamper with voting machines, according to documents obtained by POLITICO.

    #TrumpsToilet 

    [t]his one was just too fucking good. But we’ll warn you, it includes a picture of Trump’s toilet. Actually two pictures. They are from Maggie’s book, and they are pictures of torn up documents in Trump’s toilet. Which is illegal. But that’s not the best part. The best part is that Elise Stefanik’s miserable fucking name is written on one of the pieces of torn up paper resting at the bottom of Trump’ shitter. That’s right, Elise. You’re with the poop. Think of it as a crystal ball. (h/t TBS)

    Amazing how much Harris has accomplished as VP without taking any credit.  Her 51st vote has been the deciding vote in so much legislation that has been passed over the last two years.  She has to get goosebumps hitting the Yes button and watching the Repubs faces.

    The Triad is a great read today:

    No One Despises MAGA Voters More Than MAGA Elites

    “Oppressed” 

    For those who live in that world, in which your political opponents are implacable, hate-filled monsters coming after you because of what you are, it's a lot like living in a sectarian failed state like Lebanon. No matter how corrupt, incompetent, or personally vile your sect's leader is, you have to vote for him because it's zero-sum, and the other sects hate you and will rob you and oppress you because of what you are.

    So I’m sure that this is undeniably true for some swaths of Republican voters. If you’re living on government assistance in a Kentucky holler that’s been hollowed out by jobs being shipped overseas and the flood of opioids, I get it. I mean, I’d argue that you are misallocating blame, but I get that it feels like you’re living in a sectarian failed state.

     

    • Lauren Boebert is a Worthless POS says:

      Is cuckholding really THAT common in MAGA World?

      We all know the story about Jerry Fallwell, Jr., his wife and pool boy, but does it really happen more frequently?

      Where Alfred Kinsey when we need him to update his 1947 study?

      The 21st century has given us so much more to explore and understand: the family-value whoremongers, the cucks, the bowling alley thumb exhibitionists, and the airport toilet wide-stance conservatives.

  6. Lauren Boebert is a Worthless POS says:

    "If he meant “biological females” as “people assigned female at birth,” then does he think that there’s an epidemic of transgender women pretending to be pregnant so that they can get prenatal services?"

    Marco Rubio goes on bizarre rant about pregnant men on Senate floor (msn.com)

    File this alongside Danielle New Schwangler's claim that Governor Polis is pretending to be gay, presumably to cash in on all those special rights we have.

      Poor Marco, jumping up and down in a puddle of his own urine and flop sweat, trying desperately for some minimal amount of relevance.

      Like the song says, Marco, when the world doesn't want you, it will never tell you why; you can shut the door, but you can't ignore, the crawl of your decline.

  7. Genghis says:

    Never doubt that you can change the direction of your life. If this hippie can do it, so can you.

  8. Lauren Boebert is a Worthless POS says:

    And they even had a fake jail cell at CPAC ….

    Marjorie Taylor Greene prays with gay Trump supporter that was crying inside a fake jail cell – LGBTQ Nation

    Empty G looks like she's about to give this dude a blow job.

    I'm amazed that they had a fake jail cell at the conference. I'll bet Steve Bannon (and others) got a cold chill walking past it.

    Breaking: FBI raids Mar A Lago

    Trump says

    Its all over MSNBC shows now, but haven’t seen any other print stories.

    Another missed opportunity …

    Abortion ban fails to make Colorado's November ballot (msn.com)

    This may be blessing in disguise for Kristie Burton Brown and her flock of egg lovers.

    Had it actually made its way onto the ballot, I predict it would have lost be a larger margin than the 75/25 split on the prior anti-choice initiatives, if only because those were more hypothetical while this one would actually count.

    • Conserv. Head Banger says:

      Maybe Tina Peters can help them with a recount of the signatures they did have. Or maybe the zealots got cold feet after their big loss last week in conservative Kansas.

      A minor quibble….. I think 75/25 is a little high even as an average. Without looking anything up, I recall one loss for the tub-thumpers at 73-27, one at 71-29, and one at 64-36. Forgetting the other one……

      The religious fundies did better with the last one I’ve listed as the wording was mis-leading, IMHO.

    What was the FBI looking for? What did they find? Kos readers wild and hilarious guesses.

    My relatively boring guess: proof of conspiracy in the various branches of the coup attempt.
