    I’ve spent most of my adult life wondering why Murkowski doesn’t just go “I”. Every six years she gets immolated by every RWNJ in this state and yet she remains on the “R”...

    Does Nunes ever say anything that is accurate? Or does he literally mislead and lie with every statement he makes? The idiots in his district who vote for that piece of 5h!t need to hang their heads in shame. I don't support capital punishment but I'm starting to think treason against the United States might warrant it. The only problem is the sheer number of elected republican who need to be put to death, and apparently there is a shortage of the drugs needed for lethal injection. Screw it, just hang them on the public square.

    I heard a while ago she was less partisan than Maine’s ‘independent’ senator. If we had 10 Susan Collins on both sides our county would be a million times better off. It would be foolish to replace her with a partisan, regardless of what side they are on.

    No, Drew. We have fascists vs democrats. Sanity is not the midpoint.

    Particularly in Alaska where I seems to be an advantage (even if it's really just an R who likes to wear angora).

    the republicans are so deplorable that only a partisan hack would go along with them. that's why our independent senator caucuses with the Democrats and usually votes in line with them

    If you had more Susan Collins the Republicans wouldn’t be where they are right now.

    I would describe it more as a vicious circle.

    She’d probably do more for Alaska as an “I” being able to trade votes for support for particular projects in Alaska, highway funding, some earthquake repair funding.

    Granted, we’d need to bring back earmarks...

    And if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.

    Point being, the Republicans are where they are right now.

    For those of us living in the real world, the point of this is to 1) expose Chump's crimes, and then 2) when the cult sticks by him despite all evidence, take it out on them in the 2020 elections.

    The problem with all of what is coming out of these hearings is that it serves often only to frustrate. No matter what is said, I can count on one hand how many republicans in the House (or eventually the Senate) will be inclined to do the right thing and likely have at least 4 fingers left over.

    It is like when your hockey team gets one power play after another and can never score. Then they throw in a 5 minute major, and not only do you not score, you don't even get a shot off. This goes on for game after game after game. You've gone 0-your last 35 on the power play and now you are squeezing the sticks so tightly you can't score at all, ever.

    So that means it is left up to the voters. Will enough do the right thing? Are there Senators who will pay for sticking their treasonous heads in the sand? Will we see an even bigger Democratic majority in the House? I mean these are the people who keep electing a piece of human stool like Nunes or McConnell and 63,000,000 voted for trump. Nothing that happens between now and next November matters unless it moves enough Americans to ask themselves some very serious questions, and for those Americans to finally do the right thing and vote the current version of the republican party into oblivion.

    She's not a Nazi, but Nazism isn't a deal breaker for her.

    No. She's a huge part of the problem. She had plenty of chances to denounce the insanity of her party. She's either a fellow traveler which is awful or aware of the criminality but a coward, which is worse. At least an animal can't help being what it is.

    I think Tillis is in more trouble than conventional wisdom suggests. Educated voters in the suburbs are deserting the GOP in droves, even in the recent governor's races in KY and LA. Tons of educated people are moving into the suburbs of North Carolina and Tillis is basically useless and a nutter. IF the GOP goes down in the Senate next year, I think his race is the lynchpin (agree that Gardner needs to polish up his resume and list his DC condo, next up is accidental Senator McSally "wait, didn't she kick her out during the last election?" , followed by Collins who will fly Brett Kavanaugh into Portland for an election eve endorsement if things aren't looking good. )

    I believe enough adults have come around on earmarks that they will be reinstated. They are the way the parties control posturing f-cks like the Tea Baggers. For once, party apparatus actually serves the nation. They'll come back under a different name.

    But in a way, it is. Removal stops Dump from corrupting the next election.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?
