Tucker: “M&Ms will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous. Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal. When you’re totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity.”
I have a strict policy against watching even a second of Little Lord Haw-Haw’s idiotic ramblings, but I read that and now I’m legitimately tempted to break my rule just confirm for myself it’s something he actually said, and not something you’ve borrowed either from an Onion level satirist or some lunatic’s video in the depths of YouTube with less than a hundred views.

Me: “Tucker, buddy. We’ve got the Internet. You can have all the sexy cartoon characters you want. You can be turned on by the green M&M, the brown M&M, the blue M&M if you’re into that shit,…”
Seriously. It’s honestly harder to find a cartoon character the internet hasn’t made sexy (or tried to at least) at this point then one that has.

FOX NEWS one week complains that the liberal agenda is making cartoon characters too sexy, the next week complains the liberal agenda is making cartoon characters less sexy.
Literally everything that happens is put through the prism of “liberals are ruining america!”
Their “news” site, for those that don’t check it out, makes Huffington Post look like a purely impartial news journal.

Arizona’s Democratic Party has formally censured Krysten Sinema for voting against altering the filibuster.
A very Democrat move. In response to one of their own helping the degradation of democracy, helping the opposition party retake Congress, and ensuring her party’s president is a lame duck by his first year the Democrats make sure to give her a stern finger wagging.

Supposedly some large donors have threatened to pull funding for any of her reelections.
That works. Pull party funds. Start grooming a primary challenger. Make it clear that the party wants to ensure her seat stays blue, but after that make it clear she’s not going to be the one in it.
Sinema has made it clear she’s only in it for the money, so hit her where it hurts.

I don’t know why Democrats still want to end the filibuster anyways. They’d have power for only a year and then they are likely to at least lose the house, and then the Republicans could continue to win in 2024 and have a full 2 years to do whatever they want.

The greater Democratic Party meta is to never actually fully win or do anything when they do, just stick around and keep getting paid. Pretending to want to end the filibuster gets voters energized to keep their seats warm, same as all their other proposals that aren’t just tiny nudges of the current system. Grandstanding and nothing else.

Not to be a downer, but we’re far more likely to see real change from an MCU movie making a main character gay or say they’re pro universal health care than we are from politicians’ own fake volitions.

The filibuster only ever seems to hold the Dems back but never the Reps. So it’s a self-preservation move on this part.
It’s also a simultaneous moral and constitutional move. The filibuster is not in the constitution, but voting rights are. The non-Constitutional filibuster has historically been a very frequent tool in the blocking or erosion of the Constitutional right to vote. Also, to protect slavery.
Shoot, even Founding Father James Madison warned against things that would lead to a “minority rule”. He also waxed philosophical about a supposed “Tyranny of the Majority”, but ultimately concluding that a democracy should be governed by a ‘majority rule that has minority rights’. The filibuster very much does not respect that vision. Madison believed that the majority’s decision should rule as long as it was “properly debated”, while the filibuster has historically been used as a bludgeon to obstruct regardless of debate.

The 2019-2020 congress currently has the highest amount of filibusters, done by Democrats, so it’s not entirely one-sided. Don’t forget that if the “Nuclear Option” wasn’t invoked for Supreme Court appointments, Democrats would have also prevented Kavanaugh and ACB.

Which ties back to the aforementioned point that the filibuster benefits the Reps more than the Dems.
