Talk about burying the lede!

Rachel recounts an anecdote that was at then tail-end of a NYT story on GQP leader mccarthy: he abandoned one of his fellow representatives to fend for himself with just a civil war sword and a private bathroom for protection against the rampaging mob. That anecdote should haunt mccarthy for the rest of his life.

Voter re-registration in Florida?

Today, the USPS letter-carrier delivered a letter from the Duval County Supervisor of Elections, telling me that because my signature on record with the State of Florida is over 10-years-old, I'd need to complete an (enclosed) update form. Otherwise,
This could pose a problem if you vote by mail in the future.

The form and letter look legitimate, but I wonder if others have received similar snail-mail. I think I'll hand-deliver it to the Supervisor of Elections office next week, once they re-assure me that this is not a scam.

I'll reserve judgment on whether or not there is an ulterior motive behind this. Could this be a move dis-enfranchising voters who prefer mail ballots? Could we garner enough votes to unseat Gaetz, Rubio, Scott, and my so-called Representative John "Barney Fife" Rutherford?

The gawdy, false idol was not made in Mexico, as was claimed during QPAC. But, instead, China built it.

Just in time for Q-PAC!



Lincoln Project strikes again!

Stacey Abrams: "Our democracy experienced a near-death experience..."

"...Here's how to revive it."

The violent Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, coupled with ongoing threats to election officials, election workers and lawmakers at all levels, represent unprecedented attacks on the foundations of our democracy. Certainly, President Donald Trump and others in his party who inspired the attacks must be held accountable through all available means. But accountability alone will not be nearly enough.

Only meaningful reforms can undo the damage done — and establish a government that is truly representative of the people. The next real test of our democracy comes now.

Make no mistake: Democracy may have survived this year, but President Biden and Vice President Harris were elected despite, not thanks to, weakened electoral systems. Together with the Democratic Congress, they now have the opportunity to implement reforms that reaffirm our nation’s promises that our country represents and works for everyone. We as Democrats must act before it is too late.
Emphasis added. Source: WaPo

As you may recall, Ms. Abrams served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017, serving as minority leader from 2011 to 2017. She founded Fair Fight Action, an organization to address voter suppression, in 2018. She ran (unsuccessfully) for governor, and has since fought for voters' rights, especially leading up to the run-off for both GA Senate seats. Certainly someone to keep an eye on in the coming days...

Willing to provide additional excerpts if you hit the WaPo paywall.

Florida Democrat who represents Parkland delivers emotional appeal for removing Greene

Source: Washington Post

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) appealed to his colleagues that they strip Greene of her committee assignments, describing how he’d cried with parents of students killed in Parkland, Fla., and how he carries in his wallet a list of their names so they aren’t forgotten in Congress.

Deutch said Greene’s peddling of conspiracy theories about the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as a “false flag” event is devastating to those grieving families.

“There are not words in the English language to properly describe how the remarks of Ms. Greene makes these communities feel. They are still suffering. They will suffer forever,” he said.

Doing nothing, Deutch said, sends a message that lawmakers “will tolerate this conduct.”

SEDITION! a la Randy Rainbow

"So, how does a desperate, lame-duck president with his boot-licking minions with no hope or evidence try to overturn an election that they've clearly lost, multiple times?
