Many of us have/had a Champ in their lives...

Many of us are looking at their Champ nestling by our side or tucked between the blankets at our feet. Fuck you, right-wing media, for insinuating that a well loved, elderly dog is not being cared for. Fuck you doesn’t even cover your complete assholeishness.

I'm going with The Root's headline:

After Throwing His Wife, His Dad, His State, His Country, His Name, and His Nuts Under the Bus, Ted Cruz Throws His Daughters There, Too

The Orange County North Carolina GOP offices are officially a MAGA safe space.

The Orange County North Carolina GOP offices are officially a MAGA safe space.

They have permanently banned Richard Burr from the premises over his impeachment vote. Persona Non Grata!

Aide who wrote Mike Shirkey's apologies leaving to work for Dana Nessel

LANSING — Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, under fire for conspiratorial and misogynistic comments, is losing a top female aide who circulated the public apology he undermined last week.

Amber McCann, who served as deputy chief of staff and press secretary for the Clarklake Republican, is going to work for Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel as a special projects director, Nessel's office confirmed.

McCann did not immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment on the rationale for the move. Nessel communications director Kelly Rossman-McKinney, who McCann will report to, said conversations about the career shift began in the "last two or three weeks."

Pending completion of a background check, McCann is expected to start her new job on March 8. She will work as special projects director in the AG's Office of Public Information and Education, Rossman-McKinney said in a statement.

Lincoln Project faces calls to shut down

The Lincoln Project, the group formed little more than a year ago by a band of anti-Trump Republicans, is facing calls to shut down amid allegations of a toxic and abusive culture at the organization.

So far, two former top officials at the Lincoln Project have backed the idea of closing down the group, including one of its co-founders, George Conway, who stepped away from the project last summer. Kurt Bardella, who left his role as a senior adviser for the Lincoln Project last week, has also called for the group to shutter.

“Just shut it down already ... it’s over,” he tweeted on Tuesday. Reached by The Hill on Wednesday, Bardella said that his tweet speaks for itself and declined to comment further.

Conway echoed that sentiment, writing in his own tweet that Bardella “is right” in his assertion that it’s time to close down the Lincoln Project.

“It's a shame, and we shouldn't forget the hard work of so many people and the positive things the organization did, but yes, I think this is right,” Conway wrote.

But, but what about all that generational wealth.
