    I'm not big on celebrating deaths. But I am all for speaking ill of the dead. The guy who called a gawky pre-teen Chelsea Clinton "the White House Dog," and flailed around mocking Michael J. Fox's Parkinsons was what he was; an absolute jackass.  And his death doesn't change that.

    rush limbaugh had a segment called "aids update" set to music (Dionne Warwick's I'll Never Love This Way Again) where he mocked dying gay people. 

    fuck him. 
    I don’t often wish a long painful death on anyone but he would be on that list.

    Seems the Tejas mayor learned a thing or two from Moscow Mitchy Baby.

    Great news right here. The more popular people like Green get within her party, the worse off that party is... as only 9% of people have a favorable view of her.

    More people say Greene representative of Republican Party than Cheney: poll

    BY TAL AXELROD - 02/17/21 01:46 PM EST 421

    More Americans questioned in a new survey said that they think Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) is representative of the Republican Party than Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), underscoring the rightward drift of the GOP.

    According to the Quinnipiac University poll out Wednesday, 28 percent of Americans said Greene represents the GOP, while 25 percent said the same of Cheney. Forty-seven percent did not offer an opinion. 

    Both lawmakers have been thrust into the national spotlight in recent weeks. Greene generated a slew of headlines over past remarks calling for violence against Democrats, claiming school shootings were staged and suggesting wildfires were caused by a secret space laser. She has also promoted the groundless QAnon conspiracy theory. The House voted this month to strip her of her committee assignments. 

    Cheney, meanwhile, has drawn fierce Republican pushback over her vote in January to impeach then-President Trump for his role in inciting the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill. That vote resulted in a censure by her state Republican Party and a failed effort from House conservatives to remove her from her leadership position.  

    A slight majority of Americans in the new survey -- 52 percent -- said they still have not heard of Greene. Only 9 percent had a favorable view of her, compared with 38 percent who had an unfavorable view. Greene’s favorability rating is in the single digits among Democrats and independents, but 17 percent of Republicans hold a favorable view, compared with 20 percent who have an unfavorable opinion.

    Cheney’s vote, meanwhile, has elevated her standing nationally and among Democrats but led Republicans to sour on her. Twenty-seven percent of Americans overall have a favorable opinion of her, while 19 percent have an unfavorable opinion. Forty-six percent of Democrats said they view her favorably, with just 9 percent viewing her unfavorably, but only 7 percent of Republicans say they have a favorable opinion. 

    When asked who should have a bigger role in the GOP moving forward, 45 percent of respondents went with Cheney, while 14 percent said Greene. However, among Republicans, 25 percent sided with Greene while 22 percent said Cheney.

    "Two Republican Congresswomen take political heat with very different outcomes. Rep. Liz Cheney's stand on impeachment costs her within the GOP but wins over some Democrats. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's vitriolic and specious rhetoric does nothing but cripple her standing as a freshman representative and costs her dearly in the House," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

    The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 1,056 adults from Feb. 11-14 and has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.

    As anyone else noticed how most of these repub "leaders" look like televangelists? Cowinkydink? I think not, seeing how Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker, the Grahams, Jimmy Swaggart and all the others have suckered their flocks over the years.

    I would bet a paycheck this doesn't move the needle for the TX GOP or their base. 

    The hypocrisy is a virtue for the MAGA movement, to which the GOP is now married.

    Yea not surprising. How many of them from both parties outright went against their own rules of traveling during the pandemic during holidays?

    If you think both sides are equally bad after the last 4 years you need to seek better news sources.

    Or went to restaurants, or got their hair done when those were supposed to closed or.....fill in the blank. The people who are supposed to be serving us end up demanding privileges and perks not available to us. A stunning lack of self awareness seems to be a prerequisite for being a politician.

    I know there are some on the left that "do as I say...", but I think it's pretty clear the vast majority fall on the right.

    Politicians are politicians. Right/left, conservative/liberal, the party affiliation and orientation is just a label. The arguing and disagreement is mostly for public consumption. In the end, they go to eat together at the same restaurants and, play golf together at the same courses. There is more divide between the people who elect them, than the people who were elected.
