There some in the DEM camp who think they need to buckle down and play harder ball. Donnie, Mitch and Co. have stopped at nothing, NOTHING to hold on to power. When they become the minority, and they will eventually, they are sure to demand 'bipartisanship' and 'collaboration' and 'compromise', all of which they have absolutely no interest in reciprocating. Mitch proved it with President Obama: anything, ANYTHING the President was for, he was against. Never mattered if it helped anyone, it wasn't (and still isn't for him) the point. Look at the negotiations over 'rona relief: if Pelosi is 'fer it, he's ag'in it. Full stop. History will not be kind to him and his ilk. Better, if polls mean anything (unlikely), his seat is not safe, and could be handed his walking papers in November. Along with Cornyn and all the other Trump toadies - good riddance to bad rubbish. c.
His opponent is a card-carrying Bad-A$$. She did three tours in Afghanistan, was wounded by enemy fire on the last one. They were rescued, but had to stand on the skids of the choppers all the way out. Under fire. You think the U.S. Senate is going to frighten her?
Cornyn's team made the mistake of criticizing the tattoos on her arm. Went about as bad for him as you'd expect:
"A pro-Cornyn Super PAC is using a photo of my tattoos to make me seem 'radical.' That's pretty funny to me. You think I'm ashamed of them? They cover my shrapnel wounds from when my helicopter was shot down. They're a mark of my service to our country. I'm damn proud of them."
If the Republican-controlled senate pushes through a supreme court nomination before the election it will be the epitome of hypocrisy.
Yea you better do some research, see how we got here and then you will realize the heights of irony you have reached.......... or not. Bubbles are not just used so millionaires can continue to collect checks playing in front of cardboard inserts.
If youâd tuned in to the first night of the 2020 RepubÂliÂcan NationÂal ConÂvenÂtion (RNC) withÂout any broadÂer politÂiÂcal conÂtext, no one could blame you for believÂing that the UnitÂed States is facÂing the scourge of a terÂrorÂizÂing forÂeign threat, and that this threat is called ââsocialÂism.â Of course, youâd be misÂtakÂen, alongÂside a host of RNC speakÂers.
But that false narÂraÂtive underÂgirds the GOPâs playÂbook this elecÂtion, as the parÂty has choÂsen to forÂgo writÂing an actuÂal platÂform and instead simÂply run DonÂald Trumpâââa hisÂtorÂiÂcalÂly unpopÂuÂlar presÂiÂdentâââagainst a made-up menÂace, with DemoÂcÂraÂtÂic nomÂiÂnee Joe Biden servÂing, simÂply, as its figÂureÂhead.
Yet, by using ââsocialÂismâ as a stand-in for anyÂthing they deem anti-AmerÂiÂcan, RepubÂliÂcans are obscurÂing the fact that many of the poliÂcies assoÂciÂatÂed with conÂtemÂpoÂrary socialÂism are actuÂalÂly very popÂuÂlar among the votÂing pubÂlic. And Biden, a lifeÂlong modÂerÂate, has conÂsisÂtentÂly made clear that heâââunlike his forÂmer rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (IâVt.)âââis about as far as you can get from an avowed socialÂist withÂin the DemoÂcÂraÂtÂic coaliÂtion.
Still, even with Sanders out of the race, the GOP has apparÂentÂly decidÂed to go full steam ahead with its red-baitÂing line of attack.

The GOP, which criticized last weekâs Democratic convention for being short on policy, has not adopted, and will not adopt, a party platform at this weekâs convention. The Republican National Committee did adopt this resolution:
âRESOLVED, That the Republican Party has and will continue to enthusiastically support the Presidentâs America-first agenda; RESOLVED, That the 2020 Republican National Convention will adjourn without adopting a new platform until the 2024 Republican National Convention.â
There you have it, believe it or not. America First! I think that covers it. What else do you need to know?
