Tucker Carlson Leads GOP Charge To Feed Ukrainian Aid To American Babies

The derp is strong with these people.

On Tuesday, the House approved a $40 billion aid package for Ukraine by a massive 368-57 vote. You can't get 368 votes to rename a post office in DC these days, and still the House voted overwhelmingly in favor of spending the money, even topping up President Joe Biden's funding request by $7 billion.

“As China, Iran and North Korea watch our response, we must show the world that America stands firm with its allies and will do what is necessary to protect our interests abroad,” Rep. Kay Granger of Texas, the ranking Republican on the Appropriations Committee told the AP.

It's a no-brainer: Democrats support the spread of democracy and stability in Europe, and Republicans want to be seen as projecting American power internationally. As the the Post's Leigh Ann Caldwell notes, it's going to get bipartisan support in the Senate, where Senators Rand Paul and John Kennedy are currently being dicks and holding up the vote — 'cause it's a day that ends in Y.

So who are the braindead dipshits in the House that voted against it?

Well, it's exactly who you think it is.

GOP Sen. Steve Daines Knows Jesus Loves Sea Turtle Baby Eggs And Eagle Baby Eggs And Human Baby Eggs Too

Not a scientist.

By now you might have heard that the Senate held its show vote to codify Roe v. Wade into law, which failed, and we knew it was going to fail, because there aren't 60 senators who agree that women and people with uteruses shouldn't have to run all their bodily decisions by the sexually frustrated underpants crossing guards who make up the partisan hack majority on the Supreme Court.

Joe Manchin joined all the Republicans to vote against the Women's Health Protection Act, because fuck Joe Manchin.

But we don't want this moment during the debates leading up to the vote this week to fall through the cracks of Wonkette history. GOP Senator Steve Daines of Montana got up there like a man with some science questions to ask, questions nobody's ever answered to his liking.

So he asked them. Men with less of the kind of self-confidence that comes from being a white man who was told he was smart as a child might not have asked them. But Steve Daines asked them.

Here, Watch Some Congress! Or Some Baby Shark! Your Choice, Don't Care.

Live on WonkTV!

In the mood to learn about the elegant and functional thing that is "Congress"? You are in such luck, because there are some hearings going on.

Here are Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs chair Mark Milley, testifying before a House committee. Because Republicans are very serious people, they'll probably spend most of the time asking Milley why he did critical race theory drag queen story hours to Donald Trump. Or, you know, whatever it is that they're bitching about today.

Maybe they will be mad Milley and Austin have not found the Supreme Court leaker. Sure you betcha.

Susan Collins Calls Cops To Report Dastardly Sidewalk Chalk Hate Crime

Whiiiiiiiiiiiiine.

Call the ACLU! Call the ADL! Call the SPLC! GOP Senator Susan Collins has been grievously hate-crimed WITH SIDEWALK CHALK.

Wonkers, we are deeply concerned. As the Bangor Daily News was first to report, the Maine Republican called the police to report a threatening message written by an unknown person or persons defacing the sidewalk outside her home, an act of gross vandalism that can only be repaired by an afternoon shower or a garden hose.

“Susie, please, Mainers want WHPA —–> vote yes, clean up your mess,” wrote the dastardly criminal, demanding Collins vote for the Women's Health Protection Act, a federal statute to protect abortion access nationwide before the Supreme Court allows 26 states to ban it altogether. In February Collins voted against allowing the bill to advance for a floor vote.

Presumably the part about her "mess" is a reference to Collins's votes for Justices Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett, all of whom assured her they had the greatest respect for precedent, as if they were not being put on the nation's court as part of the right's fifty-year campaign to undo every bit of social progress of the past two generations, with women's rights to bodily autonomy the grand prize.
