It's all part of the Chinese Commanist Party conspiracy.

Good point, but don't hold your breath. The GOP is all about self-interest, and bad press that can be simply waved away isn't enough to make a dent in their sensibilities.

There's proof on Hunter Biden's laptop. The one the FBI has. Or maybe MTG as it now. Or maybe QAnon. I've lost track.

Somebody will. At which point somebodies GOP approval rating will hit single digits, followed by somebody announcing his/her retirement at the end of his/her current term.

Some analysis on Greene's prospects and position in the GOP circus.

'She is weighing us down': Georgia GOP cringes at Marjorie Taylor Greene spectacle [politico.com]
Quote:

The Georgia GOP is tearing itself apart in a civil war. It lost two Senate seats in an ill-fated January run-off election. And the once-Republican suburbs in metro Atlanta — the most populous part of the state — have bolted toward the Democratic side.

Now, it’s contending with another budding public relations catastrophe: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the newly elected congresswoman whose extremist beliefs and promotion of bizarre conspiracy theories have rocketed her to national notoriety.

Welcome to the thunderdome:

Quote:

The people of her district elected her and that should mean a lot," Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, told ABC's "This Week." "They elected her and she’s going to run for reelection and she’ll be accountable for what she said and her actions."

Asked about Greene liking comments on Facebook ahead of her congressional run expressing support for the execution of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as CNN reported, Hutchinson said: "I’m not going to answer that question as to whether she’s fit to serve because she believes in something that everybody else does not accept."

"I reject that," he said. "But she’s going to stand for reelection. I don’t think we ought to punish people from a disciplinary standpoint or party standpoint because they think something a little bit different."

"I would not vote for her," he later added.

How do the GOP reconcile this? Senators say an impeachment trial is unconstitutional because T**** is out of office. But the deplorables say he really won.

Democrats move against Taylor Green:

Win Win for the Dems,They suceed, MTG is margnizlized, they fail, they have made the GOP go on record defending MTG and her insanity which will play horribly with the swing surbrugan voters. what's not to like for the Dems?

Greene herself warned Monday that the precedent could be used against Democrats in the future. "If Democrats remove me from my committees, I can assure them that the precedent they are setting will be used extensively against members on their side once we regain the majority after the 2022 elections," she tweeted.
Good! If any Democrat said such disgusting things, I'd want them thrown off any committees. In fact, I'd want them thrown out of Congress.

Actually they are not trying to expel Green, just strip her of her comitee assigments..education in particular.
The beauty of this for the Dems is they eighter force the GOP to move against one of their own, or they force the GOP to publically defend, in front of God and everybody, MTG's insanity.Win Win situation if ever there was one.

The unconstitutional defense is fundamentally really silly

1) It's obviously NOT unconstitutional. The authority of the senate to have an impeachment trial on someone who is already out of office was established in the 1800s. That precedent is set. How can someone now claim it's not constitutional?

2) Oh, but the senate decides what is and what isn't constitutional, right? So if the senate determines it is not constitutional, then it isn't.

Fair enough. So hold a vote in the senate to ask the question, "Is it constitutional?" And if the Senate votes yes, it is, then, yes it is. Note that doesn't take a 2/3 majority to pass that question.

Now that the senate has determined that it is constitutional, you can vote on the impeachment charges. The "it's not constitutional" objection is gone, because the Senate has decided that it is constitutional. Therefore, you have to vote on the charges at hand.

I understand that. I'm pointing out the empty threat in her tweet. Let this set a precedent. Any Democrat who made such disgusting statements would probably never be elected in the first place and if, by some rare chance was, would not be embraced by fellow Democrats. I cannot think of a single equivalent case of a Democrat. Can anyone else?

McConnell has stated that "Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country. Somebody who's suggest that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, hat horrifying school shooting were pre-staged, and the the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.'s airplane is not living in reality."

And so the battle-lines are drawn between the McConnell Republicans and the Q-Republicans. Not attacking Trump directly, but those associated with his perceived reality.

Having failed to draw the line at Tea Party entryism he's obliged to draw it now, further down the rabbit-hole. Sadly, given the system, McConnell's powers of obstruction remain pretty substantial.
