    Republicans are overrated
    Covid has dissipated
    But prices are inflated
    So Biden is more hated

    A core U.S. interest — Europe’s security — is at risk. Though it’s unconscionable that 112 of the 214 GOP representatives voting were “nays” on the Ukraine aid (all 210 Democrats who voted were “ayes”), the House’s top Democrat, Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), was right to acknowledge that “traditional conservatives, led by Speaker Mike Johnson, have risen to the occasion.” Mr. Jeffries, too, rose to the occasion by allowing Democrats to vote for a procedural rule that advanced the measures. He intimated that Democrats would help Mr. Johnson if he faced a far-right revolt over Ukraine. This deft hint at what would have been a remarkable bipartisan rescue of a GOP speaker seems to have helped ultimately defuse Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) threats to unseat Mr. Johnson.

    They could’ve done the same for McCarthy and didn’t, which speaks to how much everyone disliked Kevin McCarthy.

    As some Dems have said, the difference was that McCarthy was regarded as a liar whose word was worthless, making dealing with him impossible, while Johnson, though more conservative in many ways, could be trusted to keep his agreements.

    Everything depends on whether MAGA Mike wants to stay speaker or say "Eff it, I've had enough."

    His name will already be on Wiki forever.

    But now that Dem priorities have been voted, I assume Mike is now on his own. We're near the end of the term so the MAGA crowd can't do much more damage.

    WaPo had a story on how Johnson evolved from an isolationist to pushing the aid package through. Long story short, once he became speaker and started getting intelligence briefings, shit got really real.

    It feels pitiful to praise a Congressman for being willing to learn something new like a toddler eating veggies. But we have to start somewhere.

    It's way harder for adults to learn new things than toddlers, particularly adults part of a rigid belief structure like the heretical offshoot of Christianity Johnson believes. So he deserves his credit. Not laurels, not even a hardy handshake, but credit.

    “Demonstrably heterosexual!”

    And a re-election slogan is born.

    "demonstrably" means she can prove it. Tapes or GTFO.
