Wow, the Minority A-holes seem to be panicking

I wonder how much pressure the orange asshole has put on them -- like blackmail info -- to have grown adults act like two-year-old spoiled children who are not getting their way. This is totally disgusting,

I watched and listened to everyday of the Nixon impeachment, I do not remember childish conduct like this.

25. most of them are

more intelligent, not by much mind you, than orangeanus, they are guilty of other offenses and they have a lot to answer for. I suspect it has to do with promotion of white supremacy and human trafficking which all get funded by laundered $$. The fact that there are other long term but soon to be exposed atrocities will include the fossil fuels/military industrial complex and international manipulation that has been shaping the world for decades. The whole big, ugly mess is about to spill out of the sewers soon. And this is either a catalyst or the actual beginning of that end.

I have been much more stressed through these past few months, I hope it ends well for the world's sake.

They think it is their right to have power to be lawless and gain riches for winning their popularity contest. Others buy their power with ill gotten wealth.

The wealth faction have, once again, proven that they have no good will toward anyone other than themselves. This is a cyclical issue but we have to break the cycle this fight or we are doomed to an ugly transition no matter how it turns out.

They have to have kompromat on the critters themselves. For example, we know almost all of them visited mar a lago. Mar a lago had a prostitution ring running disguised as massage. Trumps security chief was really only good at video surveillance.

The dots connect themselves.

But the act in the house is just a coreographed response. It is very deliberate. They aren't afraid of anything except losing power.

85. Or Chick Fil-A.

If someone wanted an all-out Chumpkin riot, shutting those down would be the easiest way.

My favorite health food store is, ironically, next door to one of those.

Every day, lunch time and rush hour, the drive-in is jam-packed with Chumpsters (you can tell).

Thank goodness the health food store has parking in the back, I'll tell you that.

71. To borrow a line from one of my fave scenes of "Blazing Saddles":

"Oh, Lohdy, Lord--he DESPERATE!!"

Do republikans go to a special school to be trained to be assholes of this magnitude??

73. Part of it is the erosion of decorum and respect (both self and others)

I was born in 1973. But even in my 46 years, I've witnessed a erosion of decorum, manners, and basic respect. Even self-respect. America's culture has coarsened and become childish by American standards, for get other geographical regions. We've always been fairly uncouth to European and Asian eyes, but we're worse off, culturally, by our own standards today.

For a few decades now we've celebrated our idiotic tendencies and worst base instincts. That Republicans are pouting children on television should surprise no one at all.

74. Pouting is one thing,

but the yelling over the chair and refusing to be quiet. Also, all their Points of Order are at the best merely silly.

75. Yes

But this is what conservatives do. Have conniption fits at the slightest provocation. Its entertaining and makes great TV. The GOP base loves to be entertained. Seeing these jackasses parade ignorance while bellowing about it is empowering to other childish ignorants.

We can tell they have no argument, all they have his hysteria and chum.

83. There doesn't need to be blackmail for a lot of them. They simply despise us.

He may have something on Lindsey or a handful of others, but I think the rest truly believe their rhetoric. We are their enemy.

This has been building since Bill Clinton's presidency, with the help of AM radio and FOX "news".

90. It's simple: keeping their committee assignments

It's not the election: most remaining Repugs are in safe seats.

But come January 2021, committee assignments will be re-drawn by each party.

IMO, if members don't show they're all in for the ((so-called)) President, their odds of keeping favored committee assignments go down.

And this can have knock-on events, such as decreased fundraising support, etc.

91. And for those retiring

IMO, they generally want to keep the revolving door into lobbyist or other jobs well-oiled.
