Lyin’ Of The Senate

Yeah, groan, a bad pun, but welcome to the 21st century, where a Russian-loving, Trump-enabling, reptilian-tortoise chimera is apparently some kind of parliamentary genius for keeping his caucus slightly more disciplined that Chuck Schumer, while he spews small “d” anti-democratic bullshit…and gets pretty much zero pushback.

“This party-line push has never been about securing citizens’ rights,” said Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the minority leader. “It’s about expanding politicians’ power.”

No, it’s about ensuring basic voting rights for all eligible voters, which shouldn’t be an issue.

Forget about Sinemanchin for the moment, though, goddamn, if either really thinks they’ve displayed some sort of Profile in Courage, I’d love to sell them some Atchafalaya real estate (of course my gut tells me cynicism not altruism motivated both).

Anyway, The Cult of the Savvy‘s both-sides bias means the GOP gets a pass.

If the elite media wasn’t so dedicated to, um, preserving their elite status, maybe they’d be able to, I dunno, report (wow, imagine) that it’s not rocket science (though voter fraud/suppression/and/or/manipulation does require, um, maneuvering).

But I get the feeling they, and their GOP sources (librul media? laff) are far more interested in preserving their status than, I dunno, doing their jobs.

To them, status=savvy.

And Moscow Mitch gets lauded as some kind of genius for basically being an asshole.

And not a very smart one.

Because if he or the Villager media think they can outflank MAGA…well, I’ve got some swampland I’d like to sell them as well.
