7. Hawley: Verb, to intentionally strike oneself forcefully in the groin.

Sometimes: To commit political suicide.

Usage:

“Dayum! That mutha-fucka just Hawley’d himself bad just to get some clicks”

“Rand Paul Hawley’d huge by saying ‘Fuck you!’” to America’s veterans.

50. I am amazed at how

Many well educated people do not have a clue of what is happening in our Government, do not care to learn, yet vote.

I have had them say they are a Republican or Democrat but have no idea who is running.

I had one person who asked,” Who is that goofy looking guy in glasses?” I said,” That is your Governor, Mike DeWine!” Yet that person claimed they voted.

8. Tom Cotton spoke out

Loud and clear how much we would gain to have Finland and Sweden in NATO. It would help with shipping, they have advanced technology. He was the complete opposite of Hawlin’ A** Hawley.

How that man can stand in the Senate and act like he knows anything is beyond me. He has no shame.

His Sister did. Tom Cotton served. He spoke out for the bill. Sorry. But look at his History. Dan Coats endorsed him, said it was the worst mistake he ever made.

23. Roll Call Vote:

https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_votes/vote1172/vote_117_2_00282.htm

Josh Hawley and Rand Paul are Putin's useful idiots.

Cornyn, Merkley, and Leahy didn't vote. Leahy is recovering from surgery. I believe Merkley is out of town helping his constituents.

Hawley might be running for president on a pro-Putin platform. He should just keep running all the way to Moscow and stay there.
