Good point. Let's restrict this one to the House. That way we can have a Stupid Prom for the Senate, too. Tuberville can be King. Who can be Queen? Maybe Collins for thinking "Trump learned his lesson"?

Greene, after reading about several major companies withdrawing their funding for Congressmen who voted to challenge the election returns, referred to the companies as "Communists".
Gee, the Marriots were commies. Who knew?

As I said in the other thread.

"For abuse of power."

Ahhh... Biden's not President yet. What power has he abused?

These are the kind of questions that if you don't have answers for when you make charges should have consequences.

But "This should have consequences" rather is the zeitgeist of the age, isn't it?

I look forward to the Republicans just throwing everything against the wall to see what sticks because there's no risk or downside.

I think "radical liberal" and "radical socialist" were their favorite knee jerk go-to's this election cycle. Of course "socialist" and "communist" were interchangeable because they're too stupid to know the difference.

So, I wonder how she'd react if some guy wanting to have sex with her refused to wear a condom to help protect her against STD, saying, "no, nuh-uh- My Body My Choice!"


So, she's a pro-choice Republican?

Sadly, the South is the best area to retire economically but I could never live there. I just couldn't take it. Well... primarily for the redneck Trumplicans but also the heat/humidity and accent. Did it once and just can't do it again. I remember sitting on the front porch of our house in Nashville and being drenched in 5 minutes while looking at the black widow spiders in the plants next to the steps. Shiver.

I know, right? "John Ossoff. Too radical for Georgia." And Perdue didn't seem to have any positive agenda. His ads showed him with a smarmy frat-boy grin as he forecast a dire future if Ossoff won: "Medicare for everyone? Expanded voting rights? A Senate where Democrats don't have to negotiate? Do you really WANT that? John Ossoff is too radical for Georgia."

My wife once chimed in, "Sounds great to me!"

Yeah, the commercial where he obviously cut AOC saying something about negotiating out of a larger sentence was blatant quote mining. And then when we was saying Democrats want illegal aliens voting and getting rid of the military I just had to wonder if even Q nuts really believe that stuff.

Yep. I thought about playing a drinking game where every time the word "radical" was said I'd take a shot. Changed my mind after about twenty minutes in to watching TV. Didn't want to die of alcohol poisoning.

Looks like a video about widespread voter fraud, and a post attacking the GA elections implementation manager about Dominion voting machines.

As an aside, she is also a no-planer.

If she is an Area-51 aliens believer then we may have a trifecta. And also it will mean she is not long for that chamber.

My guess is negative. As in, a congressman was elected by didn't get sworn in because he died between the election and the start of the new term.

Of those who were actually seated, wouldn't you know that the record goes to the first woman Senator, Rebecca Latimer Felton of Georgia in 1922. She was seated for one day.

The Governor was planning on running as a candidate for Senate in a future election. Shortly before the election that year, the sitting Senator unexpectedly died. The Governor wanted to appoint someone who would not be a challenge to his candidacy. He appointed Felton, a suffragette, to gain support of women, who could now vote, after having spoke out against women's suffrage. It didn't work and he lost the election to Walter F. George.

Felton had not been seated because Congress had not been in session. When the Senate reconvened, instead of taking his seat, George allowed Felton to be sworn in for a day as a symbolic gesture.

Shortest for an elected Member of Congress was Homer V. M. Miller, also of Georgia, in 1871. He was elected in 1868, but Georgia did not meet the qualifications to restore Federal representation after the Civil War until 1871. By the time he was eligible to be seated, there were only 7 days left of his term.

Wasn't one of the Apollo astronauts elected to office, but died before he was seated?


ETA: just found him - Jack Swigert

DevilsAdvocate 17th January 2021 07:30 PM

Miller is actually the shortest term elected Senator. The shortest term elected Member of Congress was Representative Effingham Lawrence of Louisiana in 1875. One day.

This one gets weird.

He ran in the 1872 election. That election was won by Jacob Hale Sypher. Lawrence later contested that election in court. That didn't get resolved until about two years later. By that time, he had lost the 1874 election. But the courts ruled that he had won the 1872 election. As a result of that court order and the congressional calendar, he was able to be seated for his 1873-1875 term. But there was only one day left.

ETA: Lawrence missed 2 of the 5 votes that day. He half-assed his one day in Congress.

Hillbilly Barbie promoted bat crap crazy Parkland "false flag" theory.

Quote:

ep. Marjorie Taylor Greene spread conspiracy that Parkland school shooting was ‘false flag’
By Colby Itkowitz

In 2018, after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, then a right-wing online commentator, spread the noxious conspiracy theory that the massacre was a “false flag” event intended to take away people’s guns.

The comments, unearthed by Media Matters, are the latest in a long history of Greene repeating toxic, untrue claims by far-right extremists on social media.

After the Parkland shooting, which killed 17 people, Greene shared a story on Facebook about former Broward County sheriff’s deputy Scot Peterson — who was fired over his response to the shooting — receiving a retirement pension. In the comments, someone wrote, “It’s called a pay off to keep his mouth shut since it was a false flag planned shooting.” Greene replied: “Exactly.”

Media Matters also uncovered separate comments from 2018 in which Greene lied that Democrats, specifically House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), rooted for school shootings to justify stricter gun laws.

“This war on our second amendment is going to continue and must be fought. I am told that Nancy Pelosi tells Hillary Clinton several times a month that ‘we need another school shooting’ in order to persuade the public to want strict gun control,” Greene said.

Greene, elected in November, has also trafficked in the QAnon conspiracy theory, as well as other lies popular among the far right.

Greene’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the Media Matters report.

She's isn't so much stepping in stinky farmyard manure herself so much as smearing it on all her GOP "friends" as well. If she doesn't learn to keep her mouth shut at inopportune times, her more worldly-wise party representatives are going to "arrange" for her to have a scandal and get dismissed somehow.
