Don't worry. We have receipts!
Butler is overqualified for the Senate.
Well, more I read her CV the less I like her. I'm sure she'll do swimmingly well for Uber & AirBnb in her new post. Maybe she can get in on some of Sinemas private equity action as well. Don't doubt she's cali enough to occupy the seat, or corporate enough to be beasties w/ the Gippers like Fienstien. Actually standing up for the little person Ala Warren? Not so much. Truly hope she follows Warrens mid-life flip to the Eat The Rich caucus.
I present the following two cases:
Josh Hawley lives in Virginia, but uses his sister’s house as his Missouri ‘residence.’
Tommy ‘Coach’ Tuberville has lived in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida for some 20 years. He allegedly represents Georgia in the Senate.
Can we talk about these two yahoos?
Can someone explain "advised Uber against labor rights"?
While I'm confident that Ms. Butler will vote as California progressive Democrats would wish, the entire manner in which she was chosen was exceedingly distasteful. First Newsom announces that he will only pick a Black woman for the post. Why? Something to do with Senator Harris choosing a promotion perhaps? Or because he is pandering to the many Black Women in the party leadership, where they punch far above their weight in terms of demographic numbers? Had he declared that he would only pick a White Man the party faithful would have exploded with indignation, but somehow flipping both of those categories makes it "OK" or "just". Then he compounds the stench by picking a woman who only spent a quarter of her life in the state and was not currently a citizen. Black Women make up around 3% of the population, but surely no one can seriously argue that none of these roughly 1.2 million Black Women California citizens were qualified for the post!
I predict that she will not run for the Senate. She will “live” in California for the nonce and then she will go where she is needed next. Can we not join in the speculation and just know that Gavin was trying to not put his thumb on the scale AND he did what he promised.
After Butler had already been announced as Feinstein's replacement I saw a headline claiming that Meghan Markle might be picked. I don't know if they were serious, or if it was one of those "The Queen Makes William King Instead of Charles!" type of headlines by idiots.
Oh, experience and qualifications are so 𝘣𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨. What America wants to know is, what is her recipe for cookies, and is she good at talking shit on Twitter?
Someone on MSNBC last night said Newsom would only appoint someone who does NOT plan to run in 2024, meaning Butler has no ambition to be elected.
Sounds like that's...not true? In which case, could there be other things I hear on TV that are false? Not sure I'm ready for that.
people can actually move TO Maryland to lower their tax burden?
I thought I'd heard of everything
Ms. Butler has until 12/8 to declare. Not a lot of time.

there's a difference between a blind and naked appeal to authority ("they will be a great politician because they are a great CEO, cop, soldier, etc."), which more often than not implies that their record must under no circumstances be questioned, and actually presenting someone's resume for the public to look into.
as for the carpetbagging bit, Reagan was from Illinois. I don't think Republicans have a pot to piss in (as usual)
Gaetz motion will be Tabled 218- something... he only lost 3 members unless someone changes...
"I mean, let them wallow in their pigsty of incompetence and inability to govern. They are destroying our institution."
Representative Pramila Jayapal should start speaking her mind, holding back is going to give her an ulcer.
Who ever makes decisions for autocorrect needs to stop boozing the day away. Changing a sitting representative's name... what kind of code decides that a non commenter meant 𝘗𝘳𝘢𝘺 𝘮𝘦 𝘢 𝘫𝘢𝘺 𝘱𝘢𝘭?
Has anyone in the history of spoken English ever spoken that phrase?
Herschel: “Can I get in on that? I mean, I don’t know that lady but I’ll be happy to go to DC with her. Maybe she can introduce me to Emily or, better yet, to the girls on that list. What? Yeah, I was a senator in Georgia. No, yeah, I was. I won (I think.) Ask around. Hey, which way is California? Do you validate parking here?”
OT: Just checked WaPo to see what’s happening with McCarthy, and saw this banner headline: “BREAKING: Earth shattered September heat record, with temperatures around the world at levels closer to normal for July.”
So… Go, Earth?
