    Correkshun… the bumper sticker should have been on the back of the golf cart, not the side

    trumps metaphorical skin is as thin as wet silk. Maybe next time talking about how trumpian Trumpists are, Art could find or create a full torso tattoo of him and shop his own head onto it.

    Jeffries came within 6 votes of being house speaker today.

    That would make things interesting: a Republikkkan majority house with the first Black house speaker.

    I personally support Donald Trump for speaker of the house.
    He would do nothing but talk about himself for hours upon hours upon hours driving every @$#$#$@# Republican insane and getting absolutely nothing done.

    Oh, the vote to elect a new Speaker wasn’t stolen? Well, that’s refreshing as they keep on saying most elections are rigged anyways.

    However, McCarthy DOES have the votes for Gutless dog turd.

    Thank God Seth is back!

  • PtolemyJones 9 months ago

    From what I read, the Speaker does not need to be a member of the house. Is this going to lead to the far right trying to get Trump? Gad…

    Thank goodness Seth is back ..its been a rough 2 weeks.

    It’s hilarious that McCarthy sucked up so much to Trump and it got him nothing today.

  • Terrance 9 months ago

    So sweet, I had a grin as big as Kevin McCarthy when I saw that Seth is back. Hell yes.

    there is no returning to “normalcy”: and we shouldn’t want to! we deserve better than “normal”. it’s communist/socialist revolution* or bust at this stage imo. ‘let’s return to normal’ is the cry of a conservative. it’s literally what the word means. conserving the status quo; conserving normalcy. ‘normal’ is what got us here. ‘better’ is what will get us out.

    * to clarify; I am not referring to a violent revolution

    When you talk like you did in the intro, you should play the slow, sexy “bowmp ch-ka Bow wow” music I had to pause and take a cold shower.
    Also, I’m a technologist, and the problem with Rudi’s audio was that he somehow muted himself, not his phone mic. I’ve seen it many times. My wife’s mom does it all the time.

    How did Seth get that gnarly scar on his chin?

    Seth: Tijuana is not pronounced Ti-a-juana with an extra syllable. It’s just Tijuana.
