Once upon a time, people who ran for office had some semblance of an understanding as to just how important their jobs were. They could somehow recall that they were elected to enact the will of the voters, and put the country ahead of a political party, with their intention being the greater good of the nation. There was dignity in the role of Congressperson or Senator, and they at least publicly behaved with the comportment befitting the gravitas of their collective responsibility to the country. They could work well enough with their political opponents, even if they didn’t like them or agree with them, because they all didn’t want people to die and whatnot. There’s some pledge to this or something.
But ANYWAY, if you’re a Republican living in 2021, which has been widely acknowledged the most extremely stupid time ever, you can show up to Congress wearing a gas mask (or no mask) and act with the entitlement of a toddler denied a lolly before dinner. We’ve seen the antics of Lauren Boebert and Paul Gosar, and it’s still hard to believe we’re not living in a Truman Show-meets-Idiocracy type experiment.
And then there’s the guy we did Nazi coming, Madison Cawthorn (Q-NC). Cawthorn is a rising star in the GQP because he looks like if Rolf from “The Sound of Music” used a wheelchair instead of a bicycle to spread white supremacy everywhere he goes. The longer Qawthorn remains in Congress, the more radicalized his messaging. I mean, what are we to make of this misspelled word salad uncovered by our friend Patriot Takes?

Uni-Party, Mad Madison? Both sides of the “isle”? Which isle was that, the Isle of Wight? Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs”? Just…what? Twitter tried to guess, but you can’t really do much with full-on Qrazy.
It’s a nice sunny beach day on my side of the isle 🏝

Then there’s this…well, honestly, I really don’t know what it is. But if anyone I knew started speaking like this, I would probably call an ambulance because I’d think they were having a medical episode of some kind.
.@RepCawthorn: Women, girls & trans men are not “earthen vessels” or “host bodies.” And outlawing abortion has nothing to do with “protecting life.” It’s just about forcing people to give birth because you think they’re unworthy of making that decision for themselves.

Please vote for smart people. I won’t tell you which party, just please find a smart candidate who lives on Earth One and understands how things are supposed to work, because the Stupid Times are killing us.
#3: "denied their birth" hold on, koresh jr. you're a 26 year old college dropout accused of harassing multiple women. you don't have the experience, wisdom, or charisma to get away with this doomsday retribution oratory.
the entitlement of conservative white men is nauseating.
