Republicans Have A New Kobayashi Maru Test

Prznint Stupid probably did not know that he was handing Nancy Pelosi a weapon when he held the multiple bills hostage, but he did.

House to vote on increasing stimulus payments to $2,000 per person

And so here is the Republican’s Kobayashi Maru situation:

If GOPers do not vote for the bill, Lord Damp Nut will sic his mouth-breathers on them. If they do vote for it, the deficit hawks in the party will go after them as being insufficiently conservative. They are going to get primaried no matter which side they land on.

No matter what the House does, amply be-chinned, Mitch McConnell is not going to bring it up for a vote.

    There is no such job as lead cat-herder, er, Majority Leader of the Senate directly spelled out in the Constitution, but there IS an official Preznit of that august body, and that would be VP Harris, who can simply show up the day after inauguration and tell Moscow Mitch, “You’re fired’ed!”
    From there, she can take his former position, and bring to the floor whatever bills suit her fancy, er, her solemn judgement, and she is not known for being fond of frivolity, or capable of much spiteful meanness, either.
    Depending on the results in GA, that is, but I have high hopes, based on the polls I’ve seen. Of course, we all know how well the pollsters called this one.

      Specifically, she does not need to recognize the Majority Leader as the only person who controls what legislative proposals come to the floor for debate. HOR passed bills may still fail in the Senate but now everyone will know what the GOP voted against. And, in some cases, a few GOP senators may decide to vote for a bill over MoscowMitch’s objection. Right now, the Senate does nothing except to confirm judges and pass a few bills to keep the government running. That’s it and that’s just unacceptable.

      On-the-money Dennis, which-ever way Geoawja goes. She does not have to recognize him as anything other than the senator from Kentucky. Long neglected, that office has been. Reading through some of this stuff reminds me of that scene in LOtR of Gandalf pouring over candle-lit dusty old scrolls. She can literally control the senate, regardless slim majorities.

    A new Republican Kobayashi Maru test?
    Hows about a Republican IQ test sensitive enough to plumb the depths of single digits?

    The only people dumber than House Republicans are the people who vote for them. The Republicans’ TV lawyers are a close second.
