(Will Wonkette ever write a post about Mike Johnson without finding a way to bring that up early and often? No.)

it needs to be brought up again and again until there is some indication that the very obvious national security issue it poses is being addressed by serious people.

McCarthy was a real dick and acted like it was the democrats’ job to save his ass without anything in return.

Looks like MAGA Mike has learned from Kevin’s mistake.

Bravo, Evan, pour it on. Rep. Mike Johnson (R. Wanker) should wear his Cone of Shame as long as the rivers run and the sun rises. Let him never escape the fate he volunteered for, the sap.

Also, too: Look, Mike Johnson! That's what it looks like when a caucus has a leader they can respect.

Speaking of the funding mechanism behind the entire right wing

"Ugh. I didn’t know until now that the Board of Trustees of the Heritage Foundation, the lead organizer of Project 2025, includes Rebekah Mercer (founder of Reclaim NY whose board has included Steve Bannon & Leonard Leo) & Hillsdale president Larry Arnn."

Good to read all the names so we know who these people are and we can recognize these names next time when they're trying to sneak around to do something else

okay, four more reservations on the next tumbrel, got it.

At least

Gotta make room for the ones who were in jail and got pardoned -- Bannon, Manafort, Roger Stone ...

... as well as the ones who should be under indictment but are not -- Ronna Romney McDaniel, Perjury Failure Greed, every House Republican from Paul Gosar to Gym Jordan

"“Marjorie is playing chess, not checkers. She’s looking at the long game, and she’s holding all the cards on this one,” Burchett added. “And I think it’s an attempt on her part to move the Republican party to a more conservative area — where our base is.”"

This dude isn't reading her for filth in that article...

Chess? Well, she said she liked the "horsies"....

Russia proverb involving freezing songbird, factory worker, cow pie, and a fox (that’s enough details for search) moral “He who puts you in shit ain’t always bad, and he who pulls you from shit ain’t always good, but if you get stuck in shit, “Don’t sing” is applicable here.

"Politico is full of juicy quotes from Republicans who hate her, by the way, if you’re into that sort of thing."

Sure, I've been known to enjoy the occasional hate fuck.
