A majority of what they are voting for is boiler plate Republican stuff, so it isn't shocking.  Sasse stuck his head out, when it would have been easier for him politically to not to.  Sasse took a lot of flack in Nebraska for doing what he did.

Too bad he didnít stick his head out during the first impeachment when it could have actually mattered.

I wish he would have, but he would have been unelectable in Nebraska if he did.

If Raphael Warnock has any interest in being president, he'd be a great candidate in 2024 if Biden doesn't run. Or in 2028 regardless.

Would Warnock have won if he was running against somebody that was competent?

Dude from Florida will be the next president.

He has strong Scott Walker vibes.

In his concession speech, Walker said he was disappointed that he wouldn't  be able to serve the people of Texas

Anyone see Trump's "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT"? It's so perfectly on-brand, peddling NFTs of himself dressed as superheroes, after the NFT market has completely collapsed and the majority of crypto has been revealed as fraudulent. Hopelessly incompetent, he can't even grift well.

Heís doing a great job of grifting. Itís a excellent cash grab.  You have to admire his ability to steal from those who support him.

Agree with Curt, it's a great line, and he's certainly going to make plenty of money.

But whatever money he makes, it's less the result of him begin a great grifter, and more the result of a lot of people being, well, dumb.

It's not charitable to say, but it's the truth. His entire persona, right down to the golden toilets, is comic-movie-villain, but somehow he pulls it off.

Republicans posing with AR-15ís acting like they can shoot down a ballon that is 100,000 feet in the air just reminds me how poor science and math education in the USA is.

The Target store that was shot up in Omaha was the one that my family and I shop at.  Our lovely US House of Representative member Don Bacon was more concerned with clarifying that an AR-15 is not a full automatic weapon and Antifa.  It was over 24 hours before he could even be bothered with making a statement thanking the cop that ran into the store without any protective gear and shot the guy.

It is also a reminder of how messed up our guns laws are.  The guy that did was a Schizophrenic who was had the police called on him multiple times, the family has attempted to have law enforcement (local and federal) disarm him and he was able to into a sporting goods store and buy an AR-15 with 13 magazines of ammo with no questions asked.

Citizens need to protect themselves from the government.  Gotta accept the collateral damage.
