@MariaHill Yet another person with no relevant experience trying to go straight to an office she’s not qualified for.

By the way, what the fuck is “triple confirming?” If you actually confirm something, which she didn’t, once is good.

@MariaHill @Pepper Republicans don’t have anything except being upset about a person who dresses like a normal human.

@YinzPittsburghers

The state that tipped the country over the top and gave us a Democratic president deserves to be represented by two good Democratic senators.

Good job, Republicans. You managed to pick yourselves a candidate who's a downgrade from Pat Toomey. No one should vote for him in November.

@Pepper

How many people, like me, wear business casual (either top only or whole outfit, depending) for a Zoom or in-person meeting and change back into a hoodie and leggings as soon as your meeting is over/you get home? Does Dr. Oz sleep in a suit?

@TonyStark

Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate, Kari Lake, is an election denier, which is reason enough not to elect her. She also can't read a bill, the most basic requirement for a governor, since she should presumably understand what she is signing into law or vetoing.

@TonyStark I have to say I really don’t understand all the fuss about his clothes. It’s not like a person can’t wear a hoodie and then wear a suit when it’s appropriate and not get things done. Just saying. 😅

Oz does not want to talk policy, because he would lose.

Oz also doesn't know the people of Pennsylvania and it really shows.

Dr. Oz peddled green coffee extract on TV as a “magic weight loss cure” and raspberry ketone as “the number one miracle in a bottle to burn your fat.”

The hallmark feature of both supplements was to enlarge Dr. Oz's bank account while shrinking the bank accounts of people he took advantage of.

Dr. Oz is also a fake resident of Pennsylvania as most Pennsylvanians know.

John Fetterman is an AmeriCorps volunteer, has a Master's Degree in Public Policy, was a long-time mayor of Braddock, PA, and is the current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania.

Fetterman is a well qualified public servant. Dr. Oz is a fraud.

The Fetterman campaign probably should just hire Dr. Oz. His comments sure make him sound like he really wants to vote for the guy. :fetterman2:

@Melinda I’ve heard that. It sure seems that way. You wonder who influences who and where it comes from.

Give Ted Cruz any opportunity to be a colossal jerk, and he'll reflexively take it.

Ted Cruz votes against bipartisan bill to prevent another Jan. 6-

"The median score on the structural racism index for Republicans is 0.67, compared with 0.45 for independents and 0.27 for Democrats.”

Put differently, Republicans are much more likely to buy into the notion that white people are victims.

The poll also found that the religious group that makes up the core of today’s GOP and MAGA movement has the highest structural racism measure among the demographics it surveyed: “White evangelical Protestants have the highest median score, at 0.64, while Latter-day Saints, white Catholics, and white mainline Protestants each have a median of 0.55. By contrast, religiously unaffiliated white Americans score 0.33.”

The company you keep says a lot about you.

A short-term setback for the American Taliban.

They will soon redouble their efforts at making women second class citizens whose uteruses are owned by the state.

@HopeVanDyne He's a smart guy who has always been with the rest of the Democratic establishment. When the party moved left, so did he.

Maybe that's just political expediency, but since Democratic policies have become more progressive, I'm fine with it. If we were in the party that has moved toward the extreme right, well, who needs to finish that sentence? We wouldn't have been in that party in the first place, and everyone with any sense of morality quit it a long time ago anyway.

@MariaHill For all the negativity about President Biden’s age, his policies are very forward thinking.
