    I'm still taking bets on when Gaetz tearfully announces he has to go to rehab and to please respect his privacy during such a difficult time. I'm guessing it will be shortly after the inevitable charges of sexually harassing his staffers surface. Or soliciting a male escort.

    But oddly enough, he believes in anthropogenic global warming and wants to address it.

    Hereís the thing, almost every GOP retirement comes from a solid, solid red district. I get they might not want to be in the minority again, but a job is a job.



    ...right?

    It might just be that it isn't that much fun to be in Congress anymore. It's a pretty angry place right now.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    That, and the GOP held the House for 8 years and had to fight their own Freedom Caucus to pass basic debt ceiling/budget extensions with Democratic votes. Either you stay in the minority which is no fun with House rules or you have a tiny majority owned by the Freedom Caucus again.

    Plus even if you are a racist troll you dont want to be branded us such and purged when the backlash hits. Better to reire so later you dont look like a loser and later on when doing the talk show circuit you can present yourself as a man of honor. Its a tale as old as time.

    if the democrats take the white house what are the chances MoscowMitch would block all supreme court nominations at ANY time during the new president's first term?

    Of course he wouldn't. They set very clearly what the rules were back in 2016 and there's no way they would continue to add clauses that help only them.

    Itís 100. Heís already admitted the rules arenít consistent. I donít think he would ever consider a nomination from a dem president.
    Get the senate back.

    It's basically a given, unless the Dem nominates conservatives.

    Garland was a moderate. At this point they're basically going to have to nominate 50 year-old Gorsuch clones to get anyone past Itch.
