I think voters ruled him out, but okay.

Yeah, Republicans don't have any maneuvering room on saying they're offended by tweets.

Anyway, Susan Collins is "the worst," Tom Cotton "is a fraud," and "vampires have more heart than Ted Cruz."

These are very good, accurate tweets.

Opinion | Now Republicans are offended by mean tweets?

And that's why regulating public utilities, instead of privatizing them and not regulating them, is a good idea. Don't vote Republican. And don't fall for the so-called "freedoms" of libertarianism.

Texans were promised cheaper electricity. They got a little, but their provider is allowed to charge whatever they want when "demand is high." Thatโ€™s what privatization and ending regulation does.

Watch Texans' own governor try to pretend he didn't know this was was possibilty. if he doesn't resign in incompetent shame first.

500,000 dead on their watch and they still want to tell us how it all should be run.

Since Republicans have gotten economic policy right (checks history) never - excuse me if I toss your useless advice, Steve Scalise another fawning Trump enabler, and Tim Phillips, President of a libertarian, Koch Brothers-backed organization.

Itโ€™s the Former Guy's and Republicanโ€™s failed leadership that helped get us to this moment. If they'd have advocated mask-wearing and proper social distancing early on or even at any point, things wouldn't be as bad as they are now. Give us all a break.

Hell, no.

I know we're all busy, but let's take a moment to pause and appreciate Donald's suffering today.

I just want to remind everyone that the PPP program was designed and crafted by House Democrats and put into legislation via the CARES ACT.ย 

The former guy replaced the oversight with his own political lackeys and hacks...and then went about distributing a lot of the money to his buddies and donors.

President Biden is doing what he can to fix the problems.ย The people the PPP was intended for will finally start to get the bulk of the money instead of corporate thieves.

@TonyStark I love how they think we didn't notice their sudden need to worry about the debt once the President changed over.

Help Texas.

Steve Scalise, in an interview on ABC this morning, would not answer if he thought that Joe Biden was the legitimately elected President.

Every journalist should start with that question as a prerequisite for every Republican they interview, and if they don't acknowledge that Biden was fairly elected, the interview should end there. If Republicans don't believe in our system, then don't participate in it or seek to represent it. Same election, by the way, that elected Scalise.ย 

A life without Republicans sounds really good, actually.

Opinion | Pundits are wrong. We donโ€™t need a functional GOP:

A party based on bad ideas doesn't help democracy.

Ad hoc groups of overarmed and conspiracy-minded weekend warriors are the opposite of a well-regulated militia.

We do need the reasonable among us to wrest control of the gun debate.

If the heavily armed people seen gathered in front of state capitols were truly interested in only making their views known, they would have left their guns at home. Instead, they clearly signal by their weaponry and other โ€œtacticalโ€ gear that they want to intimidate and do harm.

Other groups also gather and demonstrate in front of our statehouses. Instead of presenting the appearance of a fascist's personal protection detail, these groups are dressed like the average citizens they are.

More Americans want reasonable national gun safety laws than don't and it's time we demand them.

Please be prepared to tell your legislative representatives in DC to support this citizenship bill. This is a promise that we must keep.

You canโ€™t make America great again by selling everyone a red hat and charging the government $4 for a glass of water at your fleabag hotel. Until we pony up and invest in the nuts and bolts of economic activity (like roads and electric grids) we will be as deficient economically as we were politically on January 6.

Everything in Biden's plan is absolutely necessary. Take back the tax break to the 1%.

Democrats and Independents in the Senate, get this done without Republicans or find the few that are willing to work with you. Pass

2024's hottest bumper sticker: TED FLED.

I would say Ted Cruz abandoned his ethics, but feel I must point out Ted has never had any ethics and therefore cannot abandon them.

Then there are the Jamie Raskins of this world, from the same generation, working through profound personal grief to hold a lawless con artist to account for acts of treachery, sedition, and wanton cruelty and expose the despicable men, like Senator Cruz himself, who abetted him.

What a difference.
