when the fuck are Democrats going to learn how to fight back
what game does Dick Durbin imagine he's playing
there’s always some fucking Democrat gumming up the works, eager to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, always making it impossible for their fellow Dems to get anything done.
some days it’s Joe Manchin. if it’s not Joe Manchin, it’s Kyrsten Sinema. if it’s not Kyrsten Sinema, it’s Dick Durbin.
this week, Republicans are once again up to their usual antics.
Senate Republicans blocked a simple request from an ailing Democratic colleague Tuesday, refusing to allow Sen. Dianne Feinstein to temporarily step away from her seat on the Judiciary Committee while she continues to recover from a serious illness. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer put the request on the floor, asking for unanimous consent for Maryland Democrat Ben Cardin to serve as the interim committee member, and Sen. Lindsey Graham objected, filibustering Feinstein’s request.
breaking news: Republicans fucking suck.
so now, lacking a majority, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are powerless to get anything done. they can’t confirm judges. they can’t hold hearings. they can’t investigate Clarence Thomas.
time for some retaliation, right? time to fight fire with fire? it’s not like the Democrats are completely helpless here:
You would think that right now would be a great time for Committee Chair Dick Durbin to announce that he was no longer honoring blue slips in retaliation for the Republicans blocking a Feinstein replacement.
You would be thinking wrong. After the blocked vote, Durbin told Huffington Post: “We’re not at that point yet” of abandoning the blue slip tradition.
why the fuck not?
over and over, we see this same scenario play out.
once again, Republicans have pulled down the Democrats’ pants, taken their lunch money, and stuffed them into a locker.
and once again, Democrats have responded with “maybe if we’re nice to them, next time for sure they’ll stop beating us up.”
oh fucking please.
Democrats, please wake the fuck up. Marjorie Three Brain Cells is literally calling you pedophiles and you’re still out here tut-tutting with your “my esteemed colleague from Georgia” bullshit as if you’re a bunch of extras in Mr. Smith Goes To Washington.
Democrats, you’re getting rocks chucked at your heads. pick one the fuck up and chuck it back.
I promise you, it will feel good.
