The Greene No-Deal

Hot gossip from Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie:

INSIDE MCCARTHY’S TENTATIVE PLAN TO DEAL WITH GREENE: During a two-hour meeting Tuesday night with Greene, McCarthy explained to the QAnon supporter that her controversial past statements were coming to a head. The problem, McCarthy told her: Democrats are threatening to force a vote to remove her from her committees — and that puts the entire GOP Conference in a bad spot. McCarthy tried to give Greene options, according to a person familiar with their talk: She could denounce QAnon and apologize publicly for espousing hurtful conspiracy theories and endorsing violence on Democrats. She could remove herself from the panel to spare her colleagues a vote on the matter. Or, she could face removal from her own GOP peers.

That’s pretty much a slap-down, and the choices are like ordering sides with your shitsandwich.

It must not have gone as well as McCarthy hoped, because he then called a late-night meeting with the panel that designates committee assignments to discuss removing Greene. According to our sources, the room agreed that a House vote on this issue would be catastrophic politically for their members who are already angry at being associated with Greene’s crazy statements. That must be avoided, they concurred.

[announcer voice: It did not go well]

Five or six tweets later, Queen of the 17 concludes:

And not necessarily related (totally related):

House begins sweeping security overhaul

The House took an unprecedented step Tuesday night, voting to levy hefty fines against colleagues who bypass the recently installed metal detectors that surround the chamber. The reason is simple but speaks to the new reality: lawmakers are afraid of being injured, or worse, by colleagues trying to sneak weapons on to the House floor.

Also related: House Dems move to yoke GOP to QAnon:

House Democrats are preparing to center their strategy for the far-off midterm elections on a simple, aggressive message: Republicans are the party of QAnon.

Making an unusually early move to protect their narrow majority, House Democrats’ campaign arm on Tuesday launched its first TV ad campaign, spotlighting supporters of the fringe conspiracy theory — including those who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. It is the first step in a larger plan, orchestrated by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s new chair, Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, to exploit the growing friction between Trump hard-liners and establishment Republicans in the GOP base, which Maloney sees as a major weak point for the party.

“If Kevin McCarthy wants to take his party to ‘crazy town’ and follow these dangerous ideas, he shouldn’t expect to do well in the next election,” Maloney told POLITICO in an interview previewing the party’s strategy, referring to the House minority leader. “And it’s important to the country that the Democratic Party continues to be the responsible adult.”

But what does Tommy Tuberville think about fellow Republican Greene, asks no one, ever:

“I haven’t even looked at what all she’s done. I’d have to hold back a statement on that. Travel in this weather it’s been a little rough looking at any news or whatever.”

I guess he doesn’t get good reception from Tralfamadore when it’s overcast?

  1. Yah know if Nancy Smash was powerful enough to “Erase God’s Creation” you would surmise that she’d have expended a wee bit of effort to defeat the Qwazies like Green fomr being elected in the first place???

    I mean we are supposed to have orchestrated a gargantuan level of fraud to deny Her Lord and Master (LDN, of course) his bigly victory, yet we neglected to take over the state legislatures and barely won the Senate by the skin of our teeth.

    I dunno about you guys, but I”m getting the tiniest tickle of an idea about an inkling of a supposition in the back of my head that MTG isn’t, well, all that bright, and her hinges are kinda loose.

    And I see Tuberville has learned the Palin Manuever: “Eject a cloud of word salad and run away”

      Tuberville has quickly become the Screwie Louie Gohmert Pyle of the Senate, while Osama bin Karen is giving Screwie Louie himself a run for his money in the “batshit insane” department.

      • Ron Johnson must be sighing a huge sigh of relief to know he’s no longer “The stupidest man in the Senate” except he’s probably too stupid to understand that Football Stupid, like Tuberville possesses, is like regular stupid on steroids.

    WTF is the point of that? Fines won’t deter somebody who’s intending to go into the chamber and shoot people. They need to stop everyone from bypassing the detectors.

    • They’re working on the assumption that the Congresscritters doing this are doing it as performance and not literally intending a “Second Amendment Legislation”, that it’s more about crowing about their metal death dildo-binky than actually intending to shoot people.

      I’m not entirely sure this is a wise assumption.

      This is a good place to apply the law equally.
      Let’s think about this – If I were to attempt to bypass a metal detector I wouldn’t be fined. No, I’d be stopped. If I protested, no matter how loudly, I’d still be stopped and now I might be subject to detainment. If I sounded both as loud and as crazy as Margarine Q, I’d definitely be subject to arrest.
      Why not her? Why not Boebert?
      It’s the privilege.

    If this were just a film I’d laugh and change the channel…
    But noooooo,
    It’s a bit scary to hear Democrats and Far-off Midterm plans, in the same sentence but damn, if they’re just going to hand us the ball, we might as well take it and run…

    The MSM will keep providing this freshman idiot with a national platform because she’s “good for ratings.” Which is exactly how trump got started. They never learn/just don’t care.

    As long as MTG is allowed inside the building the US Capitol is a workplace shooting waiting to happen.
