    Two million? Does anybody believe that figure is anywhere close to being accurate? How many different ways can you say grossly underestimated (do I need to add intentionally?)?

    'Speaker Pelosi was right' -GOP offers rare praise over Taiwan visit

    Yep, you heard it. Can't believe it.
    Is this the peak of the madness of the GOP?

    Too bad this is the 1% of the decently we've seen for DECADES. (and I used to be Republican, BTW...went Independent back in the early 90's)

    Let's hope this isn't a blip.
    Let's hope that the GOP realizes they need to go to rehab after shooting themselves in the foot...multiple times. :rolleyes:
    Become a decent player without all the spit & bile
    Stop the all or nothing no compromise mindset.

    Let's hope.

    Dick Cheney calls Trump a 'coward' in ad for daughter's reelection

    Ok, you REALLY look bad ethically if you've got Dick Cheney saying you're unethical... :eek::confused::D

    I mean the man was the "Sith Master" behind the scenes of GWB's first 6 years, until the dark apprentice turn to the Light side. ;)
    Behind TONS of corruption and dastrdly deeds.
    Hell, he even made the man he shot in the face apologize to HIM.

    Basically sayin', I know I was Bad...but this guy he's BAAAAAD!
    (* plus I love my daughter) :rolleyes:
    (** also he's fuckin' up the GOP and making us look like fools)

    Return to the original sin. :p
    Vote Cheney

    Sad part...he's right. :oops:

    Republican lawmaker: Abortion could hurt GOP in November if party goes too far — POLITICO

    Uhh, it already HAS! :rolleyes:

    They just don’t get it…

    The GOP and anti-abortion folk just doesn’t understand that MOST people want freedom of choice and the government to stay the hell out of their own business.
    Especially when it comes to their bodies.

    Which is totally ironic, since the GOP has always harped on FREEDOM and govt staying the heck out their shit. Minimal government.

    Also freedoms of religion to allow them to do what they want with their bodies, including die.

    But noooo…they want this to tell everyone else what to do. Hypocrisy be damned.

    Too late, it’s backfired like a firework that created a forest fire.

    The right probably liked the strategy of complaining about losing the Roe decision more than actually doing anything rational about it. Another group of conservatives just didn't like losing to the feminists and hippies in the early 70's I bet.

    Because an honest anti-abortion plan would be to go after rapists, increase the amount of sex ed (including remedial sex ed for adults), teach how relationships should work, go after child molesting and work to prevent it, make sure all women know self defense, fix the military issues, and other steps.

    But will this turn voters away from Republican candidates?

    I'm not optimistic.

    From ‘lock her up’ to ‘defund the FBI’: How Trump and the GOP changed course on prosecuting political figures

    Again we find that the majority of the GOP leadership and much of its members demonstrate no honor or integrity...no sense of fairness or hypocrisy. :mad:
    It's NOT about justice or what's right...but about "sides". Tribalism at its worst.
    Them vs us.

    They will flip the script at their convenience.
    All done at whim...whatever makes them seem better and the opposition worse.
    Anything they can rationalize...whether factual or not.

    Makes ya yearn for the Reagan years??? :confused: (ok, maybe Ford or Bush Sr....conservatives with some backbone, soul and a sense of fair)
