Thank you sir! May I have another?

Well I mean, the old pedo enabler basically hosed the party at a tenuous time and he and his band of assholes have basically skullfucked the process in their petty need to feel powerful, so I *can't imagine* why he isn't bleeding support.

Of course, the only thing it matters to as far as the idiots are concerned is how it is for King MAGA the First.

Jordan is like the old Slinky device, which had no purpose other than to get a smile when it was pushed down the steps. Jordan just wants to keep getting pushed down the steps, thinking that some time he'll serve some useful purpose. He's never been useful. He has no purpose. And like watching a Slinky, you come to the conclusion that you are tired of this shit.

"Oh dear. These men have clearly been told too many times that it's OK, it happens to all guys."

I think it's more likely that they're the kind of guys who think that if someone tells you "no" you just gotta keep asking and asking and eventually they'll give in and say "yes". And they think that about voting, too.

They've been told all their lives that through Jesus, who makes them strong, all things are possible. And they have no idea that's just supposed to be an emotional crutch, not actual advice.

I think that it's a grown-up form of toddler whining that turns aggressive and toxic when coupled with male entitlement.

“We condemn all threats against our colleagues and it is imperative that we come together.”

Jordan’s condemnation of the threats. Not a fucking “I” in it…about as pathetic and limpdicked of a “condemnation” as you could imagine. Or maybe he thinks he can use the Royal We? Queen Liz would KICK HIS FUCKING ASS. Chuckles maybe not so much…but he would frown with intensity.

The only positive thing I'll ever write about Jim Jordan is that he doesn't insist on people calling him Coach. That's it, I'm fucking done.

And yet his staff does anyway…pretty clear example of “He isn’t forcing us to, but really we have to…”

Yeah.... still, not to Tommy Tuberville level of egotism. I mean, it's a horse race on whose ego is the biggest in this clown show.

At least, there’s no dick-measuring going on. Because, eww.

Or, is there?

What exactly has Jordan done to make republicans disike him? He seems like just the type they love.

"...if we were Jim Jordan’s kids we would change our last name."

It's funny. Ever once occurred to me that he was married or had kids.

Yes. Yes it does.

He's beating a tactical retreat, apparently. Backing McHenry for now while he tries to headlock and full-nelson the rest of his opponents into submission.

>>>Capitol Hill reporter Melanie Zanona reports that “Some of Jim Jordan's opponents tell me they've been purposely staggering their ‘no’ votes over multiple ballots,” in order to punish and humiliate him and demonstrate that more and more people hate him every day. “And that's why they tell me Jordan will bleed even more support on a third ballot,” she adds.

Reminds me of that scene in Airplane...

"They got us RIGHT WHERE THEY WANT US."

I believe the saying is,"They got us right where we want them."

I know politics has always been professional-wrestling level performance art, but when one party can't even denounce death threats? That's some seriously crazy shyte.

No clown show today while Rome metaphorically burns. Traitors.
