when virtue resides pretty much nowhere
That feeling when it would have been so much better if he'd simply appointed a horse...
Both senators, Secretary of State, and Attorney General were all appointed by emperor Gavin - not elected. Sacred California Democracy!
Imagine, after years of hard work, being introduced to a team at a new place of employment exclusively by your intrinsic characteristics.
“Hi everyone, this is Beezy Steder. Beezy, being a heterosexual white male is a great addition to our team!”
Now imagine how vapid and soulless you’d be to be happy with such an introduction!
I mean . . . could be worse.
I have no idea how. But I'm certain it could be.
This is the action of a party not worried about elections in the slightest. Abandon ship.
So...the Senator for CALIFORNIA is from Maryland? Did I read that correctly?
Given that all members of Congress do these days is go on social media and cable news to cheerlead for the President in their party and bitch about the President in the opposing party, not knowing anything isn’t quite as much of a drawback as it might have been 30 years ago.
If you were an asshat with a terrible record and lacking the aptitude to do your job, what type of person would you hire?
It could be worse, maybe. Caligula appointed his favorite horse to the Roman Senate. Is she better or worse than horse? There already numerous jackassees in the Senate, so I guess it would depend on the horse breed. She a bipedal jackass, like most all the Senate. A horse would be much easier to bribe: an apple or some sugar cubes.tough call.
The august Senate. Check the “openly black lesbian” extortion artist box, boys. We just need an illegal alien who runs somebody over and gets off scot free and an Islamic terrorist celebrated at Ivy League schools as Senators and we will have run the gauntlet of victim groups. We have had stroke victims, con artists, thieves, mobbed up Clintons, mobbed up New Jerseyites, lesbians, bisexuals, people of many colors, people who identify as other colors, fruitcakes, closeted Lindsays, , dumbasses, the demented, sexual assaulters, RINO traitors, Hawaiian morons, knee padders, climate tards, CCP bagmen, Did I say thieves already?, lawnmower salesmen, cretins, dweebs, blowhards, delectos, crybabies, two faced liars, sociopaths, wimps, dingleberries, tokens, octogenarians, nonagenarians, cartel bagmen, vegetarians, twerps, ghouls, goblins, ogres.
Of course it’s illegal to represent a state you don’t live in, but nobody cares about this requirement.
when congress is completely staffed by laphonzies, people will beg for the blackrock computer to take over
Strong dystopian vibes from this maneuver.
Gavin Newsom may be John Adams' nightmare, but what is worse is that which Adams could never envision: A complete breakdown of all self-correcting measures, a uni-party of insiders who have dismantlement all checks and balances and even the voting system to beyond even a patina of representation.
That is what this Appointment represents.
To think that I'd live to see race, sexual orientation, and fundraising ability be the key determinants of ability for public office! John Rawls certainly didn't see this coming.
This reminds me of Hillary Clinton when she moved to New York to qualify to run for US Senate and then she "won." Rigged system. Biden "wins" from his basement, right. We do not live in a democracy, let's get that straight.
An almost perfect California progressive choice. But not trans so a definite fail.
