I really like Raskin but having him school that troglodyte, mamma's basement dwelling tool Grothman warms my cold heart.

Wisconsin is sorry for this horrible excuse of a human.

We call him Grossman!

"Finger-painters"?

Anyone else here ever work as a CNA in a nursing home?

Expand full comment

Nope, but I still know what it means. And even if R's aren't guilty of it literally, they certainly are metaphorically.

"We don’t need to start finger-painting on the Constitution"`

`

"Finger painting" is a very tactful euphemism indeed.

Not for anyone who has ever cleaned up in a nursing home!

Professor Raskin strikes again! What an American Hero! Goober GOP'er is still Googling Raskins beat-down.

That should be "President Raskin" to you, pal.

That would be just fine with me! President Raskin. I like the sound of that but he can do much more shitting on the GOP House morons as a House Rep. But then, low-hanging fruit. He's make a fine POTUS.

In fact, Republicans should read what Benjamin Franklin said about our system of government. We have a republic IF WE CAN KEEP IT. The Republicans want to destroy the republic and put a dictator who is guilty of multiple felonies in power as king for life.

The GOP sees "if you can keep it" as a challenge.

Definitely "Hold my beer" territory.

What kind of a dumbass thinks the United States isn't a democratic country with a republican form of government? Republicans, like this guy, for example, don't know anything about republicanism.

These Republicans think, "Australia is not a country. It is an island."

Finger painting? Ouch, Jamie ain't playing.

And then he whipped out his johnson, and pissed all over Grotham's briefcase.

Much obliged for that picture and belly laugh.

i like this 'republic not a democracy' article. mostly the mocking spongebob title text.

"In every usage it is a statement of simple fact relying on a definition of “democracy” that nobody uses. It is, in short, the essence of a dumb person’s idea of what something smart would sound like."

Fully 90% of the people who use this phrase use it to mean, "Republicans are Real Americans, and Democrats aren't".

Ta, Dok. Jamie Raskin is a hero. Glenn Grothman, OTOH, is a zero.

Can I get some medical advice? (and yes, I know I should "see a doctor", but I have ZERO fucking medical insurance because I got my ass fired and Obamacare wants $774 a month, which, being unemployed, I ain't got). Anybody know if sinusitis can cause gastric distress? And if anxiety can cause sinusitis? Cause I've had a rough week, with moving apartments, trying to clean the old apartment, getting my new internet installed at the new apartment and having strangers and family in my tiny little apartment to do all this. And my gut and my sinuses picked today to go into hyperdrive. I'm taking Claritin, but I'm still in agony. Any advice?

Yes…dripping sinus crap goes down your throat and upsets your stomach. (I could be wrong but I think it is very acidic?).

Expand full comment

Sorry this happening. I get sinusitis from the dust that gets kicked when doing things like moving your house stuff and cleaning, especially with a leaky vacuum. A Sudafed, a Tylenol and a hot shower usually gives some temporary relief. Get some rest!

Expand full comment

hey colin i'm an old ACA person. what state are you in? ACA at $774 sounds like you're getting no tax credits which you typically should be unless you've already exceeded the limit based on your salary Jan-Apr.

i know absolutely nothing about sinusitus.

I demand that you watch Jamie Raskin's segments on the Brian Tyler Cohen podcast. The dude will take your breath away. He's not just smart, he's fundamentally profoundly decent

And with a sense of humor.

Trump does remind me of Ralph Wiggum.

Ralph Wiggum is special. There is absolutely nothing special about TFG.

ETA: Maybe TFG is Ralph's evil twin.

Ralph IS special. So is his dad, Clancy.

They tried this ratfuckery with the 2020 census, with Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, didn’t they?

Yes and not just him. Barr was in on it.
