Russian state TV laughs at GOP: ‘Without us, they can’t elect a president’

So Matt Gaetz, who looks like a bobblehead without the neck spring, led a goofy (and likely illegal) Doolittle raid on our own government yesterday. Yeah, you read about that. If not, here’s a rundown.

Anyway, Gaetz — who is at least 94 percent cranium — nevertheless didn’t have the smarts to see how silly this all looked. He had serious grievances about … something. Maybe the fact that the hearings were being conducted in secret in front of, uh, other Republicans? But Democrats have merely been following protocol, so this was obviously just kabuki theater put on for the benefit of the Prince of Orange.

And now, once again, the world is laughing at us. Or, more accurately, at our Republican half.

Julia Davis is a Russian media analyst who’s written for The Washington Post and The Daily Beast, and she has this urgent dispatch from Putinland:

Holy sh*t, that’s embarrassing. Russia — whose economy is smaller than that of Texas, FFS — has punked us big-time, and they’re laughing their asses off at our expense. And Republicans just want to keep the joke going.

And boy are they ever living up to that commitment. They’ll do nothing for the Kurds, but to Russia they’re just the gift that keeps on giving.

God bless the Motherland.

You can say that again; Republicans always find a way to make an ass out of themselves.

..,Matt Gaetz , is willing to betray
our country , for the sake of his party .
..As is most of the Republicans in the Senate.
Party ,before country and family.
Loyalty , given to Trump ,- and thru him
to Putin, to destroy our country !
..You’d think , would cause even his family to be concerned.
..But , they must be OK WITH IT !

I always think of Jackie Gleason on the Bandit when his son did something stupid. He said, boy when I get home I am going to punch your momma right in the mouth. Because they ain’t no way you came from my loins. Albeit the violence is a little over the top but the sentiment sticks.
I know Mat Gaetz daddy’s thinking the same dam thing about now.

Gleason also said to his deputy son “ to think
you’re a product of my loins “.
…His daddy raised him , so who’s to blame?

Never could figure that one out. Although I have seen fathers that didn’t help raise their kids. I never had kids of my own so not one to comment on commitments.
