Mitt admits Mission Accomplished, Joe

“… when he was elected, people were not looking for him to transform America. They were looking to get back to normal. To stop the crazy.”

  1. well, the crazies ARE being jailed, their crazier leader has been muted somewhat on the way to real indictments, unemployment at an all-time low and Dems are back to normal tearing each other apart in order to lose the mid-terms.   sounds like we’re back to normal – kinda normal considering what it was this time last year just after an insurrection and prior to an inauguration which was threatened.

  2. Well, 2022 Snowmageddon 2.0 turned out to be a garden variety 5” snowfall in East Bumfuck. Problem was that it rained as it all started, and did so for a couple of hours as the temp dropped.  My car has about an 1/8” of ice glaze under the snow.  Haven’t heard or seen a car on the road behind our house in the past hour and a half. And I think our electric snow shovel (the nuts, btw) may have given up the ghost.  Drat – gotta have one of them.

  3. pogo, more still coming your way unfortunately

    what do you make of the MI ag (earlier on rachel maddow and today AG interviewed on mojo) and/or feds potential prosecution success with this latest GOP election scandal?

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said fake election documents certifying Michigan’s election for Donald Trump and Mike Pence have been sent to federal prosecutors. Nessel was joined by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

  4. Willard also said there is no need to protect the vote.
    Yesterday, he said it’s easier to vote in Georgia than in Delaware. Well, that may have been true, so why did Georgia Republicans put up obstacles to prevent folks from voting?

    By the way, he looks amazing (he’s 74), so kudos to his aesthetician and surgeon. Will he run in 2024?

  5. BiD, that probably depends on how thin a margin is in the senate in ’23 as he would have to fish or cut bait by then to establish enough funding floor and evaluate the potency of likely primary opponents.

  6. In the same sentence, Mittens also slammed Joe, essentially saying he had no mandate to do BBB or anything else. Mean girls are good with the backhanded compliments.

  7. patd,  I really haven’t dug into that MI fake electors issue, and I don’t like to get my hopes up too early, but it doesn’t look good for the stupid fuckers fakers. Regardless of the criminal outcome, it looks extremely bad for the twice impeached, disgraced Former, especially considering the theme of his AZ rally yesterday.

  8. Paul Waldman (WaPo) on the twice impeached disgraced Former’s Arizona Project:

    [2 intro paragraphs precede quoted text]

    But if you look at a place such as Arizona — where the fate of U.S. democracy could well be decided — it’s hard not to feel afraid.

    Former president Donald Trump went there Saturday for a rally of the faithful, and what was most disturbing wasn’t even Trump’s own litany of lies and conspiracy theories. If you sat through Trump’s tired recitation of the old hits, you’d think he was slipping into irrelevance, a pathetic loser trying to convince a dwindling cadre of fans he was still relevant.

    No, what mattered about the event was the parade of Arizona politicians who came to pay tribute to him, one more deranged than the next, each there because they hope they can ride Trump’s support to their own positions of power.

    And they just might.

    Amid the expected GOP congressmen and right-wing media figures was Kari Lake, the former local news anchor whose campaign for Arizona governor is based on her embrace of Trump’s election lies. She has said the leading Democratic candidate, Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, should be imprisoned for presiding over a fair election in 2020. Trump has endorsed Lake, and she leads in primary polls.
    And there was secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem, whom Trump has also endorsed. You probably haven’t heard of Finchem, but it is almost impossible to exaggerate what a fanatic he is. He came to Washington on Jan. 6, 2021, to protest the election, and he maintains that the vote in Arizona was stolen. Finchem is a QAnon conspiracy theorist who says there are “a whole lot of elected officials” who participate “in a pedophile network in the distribution of children.” He is also a self-proclaimed member of the far-right Oath Keepers.

    Imagine for a moment: It’s 2024, we have an incredibly close presidential election, and it all comes down to Arizona, where the election is being run by an Oath Keeper and QAnon conspiracy theorist who has devoted himself to the mission of making sure Donald Trump gets elected.

    If that doesn’t frighten you, I don’t know what would.

    Trump himself is not bothering to hide his intention of getting officials elected who will be in a position to steal the 2024 election for him. “We have to be a lot sharper the next time when it comes to counting the vote,” he said in a recent video. “Sometimes the vote counter is more important than the candidate. … They have to get tougher and smarter.” All over the country, Republicans who promote Trump’s lies about 2020 are running for secretary of state. And some of them are going to win.

    There are signs an increasing number of Republicans are worried that Trump might lead their party to future defeats. A few are even willing to quietly disagree with him here and there. But there is still no doubt he controls the party.
    […And it continues…]

    Be afraid. If this doesn’t feel like 1934 I don’t know what it would feel like.

    hey kyrsten, you got mail according to wonkette

    Hillary Clinton Subtweets Manchin, Sinema, Lets Them Know What MLK Would Have Thought About Them – Wonkette

    Hillary Clinton cast some fierce shade at filibuster-loving, voting-rights-obstructing Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema on Friday when she tweeted:

    MLK Jr. said: “I had hoped that the white moderate would understand that law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice, and that when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.” This is a subtweet.

    That’s from Dr. King’s 1963 “Letter From A Birmingham Jail.” Dr. King was arrested during the Birmingham campaign in Alabama. While in jail, enduring harsh treatment, Dr. King was smuggled a local newspaper that contained an open letter called – no, I’m not kidding — “A Call For Unity.” Eight very reasonable, very polite white moderate clergymen urged activists to quietly negotiate with segregationists for their human rights and appeal to the courts rather than noisily protest. That’s so divisive!



  10. Only Trump honors MLK Day by quoting Stalin… 

    “Sometimes the vote counter is more important than the candidate” – Donald Trump

    “I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how” – Stalin

  11. When watching the play off games I usually try to pick a side, just give the game some interest. A lot of times I pick the one I hate the least. For my St Louis friends it has to be a difficult choice as both teams are equally vile. It may come down to the person’s age.
