Matt Gaetz stinks on ice

Axios morning email thingie alerts us a shift in the Event Horizon:

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has privately told confidants he’s seriously considering not seeking re-election and possibly leaving Congress early for a job at Newsmax, three sources with direct knowledge of the talks tell Axios.

Why it matters: Gaetz is a provocative figure on the right who’s attracted attention by being a fierce defender of former President Trump. The Republican also represents a politically potent district on the Florida panhandle.

What we’re hearing: Gaetz has told some of his allies he’s interested in becoming a media personality, and floated taking a role at Newsmax.

One of the sources said Gaetz has had early conversations with the network about what a position could look like.

The backdrop: Many Republicans turned to the network after Fox News called Arizona early for President Biden.

Some critics now say Fox is not conservative enough for their tastes, providing an opening for Newsmax and the One America News Network (OANN).

Gaetz has previously toyed with the idea of running for higher office. 

[Here’s an example of WordPress eff’ery: this post so far has taken nearly 30 minutes, and it is mostly a cut-and-paste.]

I guess keeping a growing houseboy boy like Nestor in steaks and sneakers costs more than a Representative’s salary, and so we shouldn’t mock Floriduh’s finest father for wanting to do well for his family.

    Plant a dead body in his congressional office and he can give Sean Hannity a run for his money.

      I believe that was Joe “Squint” Scarborough, not KKKlannity. But, maybe plant KKKlannity’s dead body in his office? Win-win, M-F’ers!

        That was Lori Klausutis, who wasn’t having an affair with Squint, and who sadly suffered from migraines which eventually caused her to fall and hit her her on a desk that led to her death. I often wonder if the meat puppet (Mika) knows the truth?

    Wasn’t “lobbyist” where the big bucks are? I might have expected a schmuck like Getz to pick a low rent and short-lived career like talking head. How long can sniveling into a hot mike be tolerated? He wasn’t exactly much of a public servant either. May I suggest used car salesperson for him?
    Maybe he could do Beavis public impersonations? Or was it Butthead? Maybe for him, he could play both at once?

      Getting paid the yearly sum of $174k, plus off the record benefits to ‘represent’ that area of the panhandle, which is home to a military base & the redneck riviera is one of the easiest gigs in DC for a upstart republican.

      Me thinks that his ‘son’ Nestor has gotten bored & found another sugar daddy, one that has more money & clout and is threatening to leave Matty’s creepy embraces.

    • “Lobbyist” requires dealing with elected officials who are interested, at least marginally, in governing. Apparently the new generation of MAGAt pols don’t truck with that sort of stuff in favor of trolling the libs and shitposting on social media.

      They don’t have much call for ‘lobbyists’.

    On wordpress effery – they have really turned things around. I mentioned down/up-stream a short-term workaround, but … I just spent thirty minutes inserting a graphic in a three-line post.

    I’m still gonna’ buy it, register a domain, when my new M$ Surface shows up. I’ve been running for free too long.

    Getz, meh …

  5. Listen, I sometimes read the NEWSMAX magazine, and to guess the audience, I read the ads…they’re mostly products in which white-hair might be interested, i.e., Gold, Silver, Boner Pills, Comfortable Shoes, etc. In a nutshell, the audience will be in the dirt or a cremains jar before too long. LOL!

    Gaetz behind a mike would be a cross between Max Headroom and Gary Busey.

    Matty can use some extra cash because he has a wedding coming up to the ironically named Ginger Luckey.
