Press Ask Pelosi To Fix #MoscowMitch

Weaponized Pelosi
(Idea stolen without shame from the much-missed Zaius Nation)

It always amazes me how our Failed Political Press demands that Democrats concede ground to appease Republicans, but never suggest radical Republicans change anything. Politico (emphasis mine):

“One way or another we’ll get [a Trump-Virus Relief Bill] done,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday. Then Pelosi quickly dismissed a question from reporters about GOP senators saying she needs to meet with McConnell and hammer out a deal.

“Is that what they think? Good for them,” Pelosi said. “Tell them to go meet with McConnell.”

It is NOT Nancy Pelosi’s job to fix the Republican Party.

Seriously, why don’t those Republican Senators go pressure amply-bechinned Mitch, who has been an obstruction in the rectum of progress. And why doesn’t the press ask them to do it?

    Why doesn’t the press ask GOP senators to do their jobs? Access!
    Seriously, with carefully kept notes, wouldn’t that be a bigger story than the stuff they’re peddling?
    Journalist journals that journalism questions lose him access to the following senators:
    followed by a list of the senators and the last question they were allowed to ask before they got the boot.
    Not a scoop, admittedly, because there just isn’t a surprise there.

      Exactly. Like when Jim Acosta was banned from Whitey House for being “rude” to our lord and master; I remember that he was banned, I don’t remember the question he dared ask. The fact that he was banned was the bigger story. They all need to be willing to get themselves banned dammit, some of them may have gotten close in the last year or so.

        And recording the banning event could serve as an entry point to an investigation:
        Why so touchy about financial questions?
        Why no answers to questions about Russia or the Ukraine?
        Why does a tax return question get me banned?
        Et cetera, et cetera, ad infinitum.

      Having abdicated any responsibility for judging the morality or ethics of public figures, the press is left with no reliable standard to accuse politicians of violating in their constant quest for the newest scandal. No standard, except hypocrisy. Thus it is always Democrats’ failure when the government doesn’t get something done, because Democrats want a functional government. Republicans openly believe that government doesn’t work, so when they fail to pass a stimulus bill, that just means that they were right all along. When a stimulus bill does get passed, it will be because Republicans generously compromised, and Democrats are still hypocrites and failures because they thought they could do better.

    Mitch is the key. His Senators will do anything he tells them to. As long as he is in control, Democrats have very little pushback power. So Georgia becomes massively important in the Senate race,
    .
    Also, I don’t want to hear for the millionth time that Dems need to “reach across the aisle” to make nice with Republicans. Let Republicans reach across now. If we reach across at all, it should be to punch them in the throat.

      Don’t cha know that republicans are the only ones who can have a legislative ‘mandate’ and whose electoral victories are legitimate as they are supported by ‘real ‘muricans?’ The worthless beltway media was only too generous in promoting those absurd ideas to a incompetent, vulgar troll like fat nixon that Biden and the dims cheat at every level.

      Both Perdue and Loeffler are corrupt, sh*tty humans who aren’t really that smart. Both of those races in an actual first world country should be easy pickups for the dims. However, known donkey rapist Chuck Todd along with his fellow overrated stenographers within the worthless beltway media will have the idiotic electorate believe that any prospect of democratic governance with shared sacrifices that lead to better communities are a unpaved road to hell.

        There are a lot of us who are staying home, etc. to keep people well who have plenty of time to write postcards. I’m mailing a generous bundle out to GA in the morning, even. Maybe we’ll do it!

    No reach across from Republicans. Maybe if you’re lucky a reach around.
