The only downside to Mitch McConnell’s no longer being majority leader is that I cannot call this post The Majority & Marjorie Show. Otherwise he is not missed in his former role, especially after he briefly tried to stay in power after Senators Ossoff and Warnock were sworn in. What is it with GOPers hugging so tightly to power as if it were a MyPillow? It’s a new fad I could do without.
Everything the Turtle does is tactical. As the most cynical man in American politics, he views QAnon more as a menace to a future majority than a menace to society. It’s unclear how long unhinged wingnuttery will be in fashion and Mitch likes to be on the winning side of every battle.
The main reason his comments about Marjorie Taylor Greene are noteworthy is that he’s butting into the House’s business. It’s a sign that the Turtle knows that KMac was a weak and feckless leader even before he was deballed by Pennywise.
The statement is a thing of beauty:
“Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country,” McConnell said in a statement that did not mention Greene by name. “Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality.”
He forgot to mention pedophilia and pizza. It’s not QAnon without pizza and pedophilia.
The QAnon lady, who is the first stalker ever elected to Congress, responded on the tweeter tube:
Mitch McConnell a graceful loser? The Grim Reaper? The man who vowed to smother Barack Obama’s presidency in the crib. Graceful? Are you deranged? Why am I stating the obvious?
After 4 years of abject sycophancy, the two Macs deserve each other and Marjorie Taylor Greene.
She’s the headache aspirin can’t cure.
She’s the heartburn Pepto-Bismol can’t help
She’s the hemorrhoid that Preparation-H can’t soothe.
The cancer analogy is perfect. She needs to be excised from the body politic before the cancer spreads. QAnon is as dangerous as it is stupid. That goes for Marjorie Taylor Greene as well.
That concludes this episode of The Mitch & Marjorie Show.
Since I have pizza on my mind, the last word goes to Lou Monte:
One thought on “The Mitch & Marjorie Show”
There is, in every lifetime, in every democratic government, anywhere in the world, at least one crackpot politician. We had one in Australia called Pauline Hanson, a bigot and a racist, just two of her shortcomings, but who enjoyed, briefly, notoriety but little or no leverage for her policies.
I think the fact the way a democracy works allows for these aberrations whilst providing the necessary checks and balances to stop it festering.
People are not fools and soon see through the thin veneer that patches over the dry rot underneath. I think also, a healthy disregard for all politicians, not matter what side of the political spectrum, helps maintain the man, or woman, in the street’s perspective.
Politicians have always had the knack of saying what they believe we want to hear at an appropriate moment, which is why they have such short memories, it’s simply because the wind changes direction so often, sometimes it’s hard to keep up.
To me, it doesn’t matter whose in charge, they’ll eventually stuff up and the populace will vote them out. Only once in a hundred years does a good politician turn up, but sadly, their goodness lasts only till they die, and then the opposition will then blame them for everything that is wrong with the system.
But, I have to say, some of the rhetoric that’s being bandied around this time is ‘out there’. I suppose next, someone will say we have been invaded by aliens, and all the politicians have been replaced by them. It would certainly account for a lot of what’s going on, not only in America but all over the world.
My father had an expression for what’s happening now, ‘we are all going to hell in a handbasket’.
