It’s hilarious to me seeing all of the DC media feverishly responding to every of her tweets trying to fact check.

They don’t respond to anybody else that way, right or left. She has so many people shook.

Yep. They are so shook.

Also funny to see the super serious right media figures super outraged over a subpoena joke.

It’s much different being Speaker when the Senate and Executive is in the other party’s hands (see granny-killing Paul Ryan for most of Obama’s Presidency). Of course Dems will be more serious than the GOP ever was, but this does give them the opportunity to possibly pass some VERY ideological bills, get them into the political ecosystem for debate, and possibly even score some with the CBO. I’m very interested to see where she ends up falling on what to pass and what to deep six.

She was Speaker during the last 2 years of the Bush adminstration, where she orchestrated a successful supbeona for emails records against the WH. Seems relevant.

Touché, for some reason I thought Dems had the Senate then. Def relevant, I’m still interested to see how much stuff they move out of cmte.

"Five Democrats saved House Republicans from an embarrassing floor defeat Wednesday, voting with the GOP on a farm bill rule that controversially included language blocking a vote on U.S. involvement in Yemen.

The rule ? which set up consideration for the farm bill ? waived a War Powers Resolution–based measure that could have given Democrats a floor vote on ending U.S. assistance to the Saudi-led coalition blamed for thousands of deaths and widespread starvation in Yemen. "

How do exceptions work? Is it simple majority to waive house rules?

I thought democrats helped waive it for the dumb tax cut but I could be wrong.

She's not stupid, this is what the old guard Democrats want. They don't want Medicare for All. They don't want a Green New Deal. Their service to the working class is just enough to keep us from revolting.

And still "progressives" line up behind this turd of a Senator over and over again.

It's a House rule, it has no statutory force, and is easily waivable. I'm also old enough to remember a much more conservative Democratic majority led by Speaker Pelosi passed a bunch of bills that added to the federal budget deficit in 09/10. Then there's the pesky fact of the WH and Senate still being controlled by Republicans, so none of that^ legislation is passing in the next 2 years anyway.

Which rest of the world? The second most populous nation in all of America that just elected an authoritarian right wing extremist? The UK who voted to leave the EU and has kept the Tories in power mostly for racist reasons? France, where a literal Nazi party is gaining more and more power? China? Russia? The fucking Middle East? What part of the world would the Democratic party platform, let alone the policies I support, be considered "right wing"?

^^ probably (no, definitely) accurate but also a reflection on the ignorance of the country as a whole. The GOP and their base is so full of wormbrained idiots that instead of one side trying to convince the other that their way of dealing with climate change is more efficient we have battles over whether it actually exists.

No other major party on earth is this brain dead.

These are the same people who talk about "Trump Derangement Syndrome", as they doggedly seek out the grade school records of a freshman congresswoman. Let's be real, a large part of her conservative haters just desperately wish they could fuck her.

nevermind, i think i figured it out, it's just more of them trying to fabricate the narrative that she is faking it. i think they are trying to show that she used to be sandy (white sounding) from a fancy school and now she's alexandria ocasio-cortez (puerto rican) from the working class bronx

It was dumb. Doesn’t help with the GOP narrative that Dems have it in for Trump. Not enough hard evidence to even impeach him without the Mueller probe even being over yet. Still, I laffed.

Shoulda been obvious to everyone Trump is probably going to get impeached.

Saying it that way causes the GOP the circle the wagons sooner than later, but they're going to have to cross that bridge at some point.
