America Shocked: Rudderless Republicans Have No Agenda, Stand For Nothing

McConnell: No legislative agenda for 2022 midterms

Mitch McConnell has told colleagues and donors Senate Republicans won’t release a legislative agenda before next year’s midterms, according to people who’ve attended private meetings with the minority leader.

Why it matters: Every midterm cycle, there are Republican donors and operatives who argue the party should release a positive, pro-active governing outline around which candidates can rally. McConnell adamantly rejects this idea, preferring to skewer Democrats for their perceived failures.

“They cannot hold us accountable for our failures,” Moscow Mitch didn’t say, “if we make no promises.”

But anyway, this is where it gets funny: untalented hapless House Minority Leader RepK-Mac wants a detailed agenda:

The current House minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, is a “Contract with America” guy. He’s told his colleagues he thinks it’s important they tell voters what they support — not just what they oppose.

  • He wants to release a legislative agenda to unite the conference ahead of the midterms, according to sources with direct knowledge of his caucus statements.
  • McCarthy’s already released a first element: what he calls the “Parents Bill of Rights.”
  • He’s also appointed Republican members to seven “issue-specific task forces” to work up this pre-midterm agenda.

Of course our Failed Political Press ™ will fail to notice that the Republicans have two contradictory strategies coming from both of their leaders.

Why Won’t the Democrats Lead?

  1. If they release nothing, all the stupid degenerate gamblers of the media has to talk about is Democrats in Disarray, because Republicans being in disarray is unpossible badthought.

    Saw this in action this morning on CNN: new jobs and unemployment report came out 210000 new jobs, unemployment down to 4.2% another record low.

    CNN guy “Well this is a mixed report for the Dems isn’t it? It was not as many jabs as last month …” referring to, of course, the adjusted jobs numbers from last month versus the un-adjusted ones.

    Biden could personally deliver a pony and a million dollars to every single American and they would furrow their brows and sagely discuss the problems of pony shit and money management for Americans, and how this will “weigh down the Democrats in the Midterms.”

    Meanwhile whenever Republicans get on TeeVee they’re foaming at the mouth and literally flinging shit at everything, and strangling puppies and kittens on live teeVee…and that would be just fine.

    At least they have their 2016 platform to fall back on.

    Republicans: It’s almost like the right hand shot the left hand in the foot and doesn’t know what it’s doing.

    It would be great if someone w/skills could take Groucho Marx’ “Whatever It Is, I’m Against It!” and apply it to the Do Nothing But Evil Republicans. It’s truly perfect for this.
