Why, they won’t see much difference other than the Gopers will need a bigger hole to run and hide in.
When Democrats are in the majority they run the House. When Republicans are in the majority, the Democrats still run the House.
Any time the stupidest people in the nation are gridlocked is a good time for us normals who just want to be left alone.
Ground Nazi’s gov’t plane.
It was certainly way fun before.
Yup. McCarthy is an empty suit. I’d fire his gutless, lazy ass and put replace him with Jim Jordan.
Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.Oh yes: those big dumb ultra-MAGA types never pick up a book and read; and they certainly have no sense of history, those brutes.

The New Deal, Dean Acheson wrote approvingly in a book called A Democrat Looks At His Party, “conceived of the federal government as the whole people organized to do what had to be done.” A year later, Mr. (Arthur) Larson wrote A Republican Looks At His Party, and made much the same claim in his book for modern Republicans. The “underlying philosophy” of the New Republicanism, said Mr. Larson, is that “if a job has to be done to meet the needs of the people, and no one else can do it, then it is the proper function of the federal government.”
Here we have, by prominent spokesmen of both political parties, an unqualified repudiation of the principle of limited government. There is no reference by either of them to the Constitution, or any attempt to define the legitimate functions of government. The government can do whatever needs to be done; note, too, the implicit but necessary assumption that it is the government itself that determines what needs to be done. We must not, I think, underrate the importance of these statements. They reflect the view of a majority of the leaders of one of our parties, and of a strong minority among the leaders of the other, and they propound the first principle of totalitarianism: that the State is competent to do all things and is limited in what it actually does only by the will of those who control the State. …

Nice that Turtle has already given up on the Senate because his handpicked traitors all lost the primaries. Fire that scumbag too.
The gop will just bankrupt our country slightly slower than the communist democrats.
"This new breed of Republicans are anarchists."
I say that the MAGA Republicans should insist on appointing Donald Trump as speaker of the House! That would keep the cages over at the MSNBC zoo rattling for a few years!
If enough MAGA GOPers get elected, McCarthy could also be in for an unpleasant surprise. Here's hoping.
Why would you think a former President would consider such an insult?
This is pretty normal as we have seen - mid-term elections end up with a divided government as people don’t want to hand one party all the power.
The solution to prevent “divided government” is subsidiarity - i.e. reduce the size and power of the federal government.
Push authority and decision making DOWN — even below states to county level.
Reduce the federal government to 1/10th of its current size - put it in charge of
1. external defense
2. internal negotiations
3. regulations - but not governance - over the states
Pretty much. Democrats and assistant Democrats.
Pretty sad, I would say. Actually, I think it’s more angering, than sad.
The very first order of business needs to be to impeach Biden.
Then when the Senate acquits, impeach him again.
Messages must be sent. #1 impeachment is just a political maneuver now. #2 the shampeachments of Trump were never legitimate. 3# The Republicans will actually show some spine for a change.
Exactly. The house needs to impeach Biden at least 3 times. Make him the most impeached President ever!
WADR to that twit Chris Murphy, while I’d like to see a GOP House be able to actually “govern,” I’d be perfectly happy if they could only KEEP BIDEN AND DOCRATS FROM “GOVERNING.”
