Sen. Thune Begs GOP: Stop Cancel Culturing Each Other And Go Back To Whining About Liberal Cancel Culture
Your circus, your monkeys, pal.
Ain't it a bitch when cancel culture comes for you! Just when you've come up with this ONE WEIRD TRICK to magically transform yourself into the victim every time someone calls your team out for being a pack of racist psychopaths, that secret weapon comes boomeranging back and smacks you in the face. UNFAIR!
Well, there's only one thing for it. Gotta accuse your opponents of doing cancel cultures to you!
"There was a strong case made," Senate Minority Whip John Thune said of impeachment in an interview with the AP. "People could come to different conclusions. If we're going to criticize the media and the Left for cancel culture, we can't be doing that ourselves."
Some Friday afternoon joy for our darlings!
It's never a bad day for another Gipper Madness story. And today we have two of them for your Friday enjoyment. Who loves ya, baby?
First up, Pennsylvania, where the primary to replace retiring Senator Pat Toomey has already turned into a nasty slapfest.
"Any candidate who wants to win in Pennsylvania in 2022 must be full Trump MAGA," Steve Bannon told Politico, seemingly oblivious of the fact that "full Trump MAGA" was on the ballot in November, and he lost. Other data points include the state's governor, lieutenant governor, and half its congressional delegation, all of whom are Democrats. But Steve Bannon has never been overly preoccupied with the truth, so here we are.
Well, that was a nice break. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Thank goodness the election is over, right? Now we can get back to talking about ... ELECTION. Hooray it is almost 2022!
Yesterday David Perdue filed the FEC paperwork to run for Senate in Georgia next year. The former senator just got his ass kicked by Jon Ossoff, a 34-year-old documentary filmmaker, so his old seat won't be up for another six years. But Georgia's other US Senate seat is up in 2022, and Perdue's got $5.7 million left in his campaign account from last time, so what the hell, right?
Remember, Kelly Loeffler was appointed by Governor Brian Kemp to replace Johnny Isakson, who resigned in 2020 for health reasons. Rep. Doug Collins, a longtime Georgia politician, figured he was next in line for the job, but Kemp opted for Loeffler, who could afford to fund her own campaign and was supposed to appeal to suburban women in the November special election to fill out the last two years of Isakson's term.
And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddlesome Black voters turning out in record numbers and millions of Democratic donors smashing that ActBlue button like their lives depended on it. God bless Stacey Abrams! If Perdue wants to get back in this race with her on the ballot and Trump off it, well, good luck, fella!
You love to see it.
Republicans in a muddle! The Grand Omnishambles Party! Gipper Madness! Whatever moniker we eventually settle on to describe the chaos inside today's GOP, it's clear we can now retire that old cliche that "Dems fall in love, Republicans fall in line." We coalesced behind a centrist candidate and took back all three branches, and they're tearing themselves apart in a cult frenzy over "the weird worship of one dude."
Happy Presidents’ Day! Today, we honor the many great Presidents that have made America the amazing country that… https://t.co/ix1P3JlX4D— GOP (@GOP)1613397663.0
