Serious Question: Can Mitch McConnell be impeached/censured/removed from office/somthing?

Trump needs to go obviously, but this shutdown *could* be shut down if Mitch McConnell holds a vote on a clean CR. So far, however, McConnell is aiding and abetting Trump's shutdown by refusing to hold a vote, so he is just as guilty IMHO and, at some point, he needs to be held accountable for his dereliction of duty as well, especially if his constituents aren't going to hold his feet to the fire over this.

Why are Republicans willing to die on this Wall?

Are they *that* afraid of Trump's "base" when the majority of the public doesn't care about the Wall, certainly not enough to keep government shut down for "weeks or years" like the insane Trumpsters?

Yessss

and stop goading Democrats about "giving in" on wall funding. The public doesn't want it, it's idiotic, and there's no way it's going to happen legally or logistically even if the Democrats cave and agree to fund it. It's nothing but a ridiculous boondoggle and should be treated as such.

I see a flaw in his strategy

Democrats should take the blame because......he walks out?

Pelosi and Shumer should agree to a SEPARATE vote on Trump's Wall

in exchange for a clean CR. Of course, it won't pass, but at least everybody could agree that Trump got an up-or-down vote (which is not always something Republicans always allow for Democratic policies/nominees, but I digress) on The Wall and the people have spoken and it's time to move on.

So

Maybe Cis (non-Trans) women should be the ones barred from the women's restrooms?

Except

climate change is/will be someday a GLOBAL Emergency, partly because people like Trump, Rubio, et. al have been focused more on keeping former Presidents from doing anything about it and focusing on distractions like The Wall.

I saw this in my Twitter feed this morning and quickly proceeded to lose my s**t



"two to tango"


The "both sides" take is already incredibly dishonest but this is just rage-inducing.

Total non-starter

Since he's a Democratic Senator in a state that would just as easily go for a hardcore right-wing Republican, I'll tolerate him. There's absolutely no way that he would appeal to the broad Democratic Party constituency. I can guarantee that with near absolute certainty.

Republicans always think that the perception of their policies is the problem

and that their only challenge is to get the necessary # of votes needed in order to win. They never seem to stop for a second and think about the actual quality of their policies.
