Rand Paul, being retarded.
“Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be ‘constitutional’ does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional,”
Well then why do we even have a Supreme Court, chucklefuck? Obviously you know better than them, we might as well skip the whole thing and let you jacknuts decide everything.
I love it when the right doesn’t get their way and suddenly the problem is that everyone else is just some piddly nobody trying to ruin things.
How could a bill intended to expand protection against domestic violence possibly be controversial? When Republicans are on an anti-vagina crusade, that’s how.
Republicans say the measure, under the cloak of battered women, unnecessarily expands immigration avenues by creating new definitions for immigrant victims to claim battery. More important, they say, it fails to put in safeguards to ensure that domestic violence grants are being well spent. It also dilutes the focus on domestic violence by expanding protections to new groups, like same-sex couples, they say.
Only the GOP could “defend” an anti-woman stance by admitting to being anti-immigrant and anti-gay. “No no,” they say. “We’re not anti-woman! We just don’t want immigrants and queers to get help!”
This is bad and good. Bad because it’s showing that moderate Republicans are being driven out. Good because it’s in Maine, so that’s a pretty good chance of a Democrat taking her place.
As a general rule, anything that pisses off Mitch McConnell is a good thing.
My first choice was to do something important for the country. But my second obligation is to my party and my conference to prevent them from being sucked into a horrible position politically that would allow the president, probably, to get reelected because we didn’t handle this difficult situation correctly.
Two things. One, as reader Rechan noticed, it’s funny that his “choice” was the country, but his “obligation” is to his party. Secondly, there should be no, ZERO, not one choice made with anything but “the country” in mind. If any choice made on the hill was colored by political angling, it’s evidence that you don’t know how to do your goddamn job.
