      • House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Tuesday he's "lost confidence" in Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) during a moment of candor caught on a hot mic, a tape reviewed by Axios shows.

        What he's saying: "I think she's got real problems," McCarthy told Steve Doocy off-air ahead of a live "Fox and Friends" interview. "I've had it with ... I've had it with her. You know, I've lost confidence. ... Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place."

        Never thought I'd see the day where I thought Liz Cheney was sane. The GOP moves the bar further and further to the right and everyone pretends that Biden's a socialist. I got bad news for everyone. Biden is center right. He's not center left. Nixon was leftier than Biden.

            This situation is completely insane. The GOP has collectively lost its mind.

            • You know the saying that when you’re accustomed to privilege, any move towards equality feels like oppression? There's a corollary - if your politics move far enough to the right, everyone else looks like a Marxist.

              It works for moving too far left as well (go full tankie and everyone else looks like Pinochet), but there aren't any extreme left movements really gaining ground at the moment.

                "Tankie" is a great term that should be revived.

                Though as you say right now it's a signifier without any instance of the signified.

                The best example of your effect in politics is the top marginal rate. The Right is arguing that moving it to 39% is Communism. When Reagan took office it was 50%, and when Eisenhower was in office it was above 90%.

                    Nancy Pelosi...defending Liz Cheney. Put that up with Dubya saying the GQP can't just be about the WASPs and Romney not being Right Wing enough for Utah and I'm not sure what world we are on! I embrace this part of the Multiverse though...

                    • Now that McConnell literally says that his goal is to stop everything, will Manchin/Sinema finally change their tune? Or will they pretend there are ten moderates to swing?

                          Sinema might reverse course and grow some backbone. Manchin is a fcking fossil who thinks it's 1995 and he can cut deals with Fig Newt. He will never change.
