Josh Hawley, the same righteous asshole Senator who tried to stop the 2020 Presidential Election from being certified — yes, that asshole — has said he will hold up all appointments for the Departments of State and Defense until Blinken and Austin resign. No more Ambassadors. No more Generals…

Here’s how Democrats should respond: every time a river overflows its banks and destroys family farms in Missouri, every time a tornado rolls on through the trailer park, every time a natural disaster destroys a town and all surrounding crops, Democrats should, collectively say: FUCK IT. We’re not giving you ten cents. The power of the purse should be used to undercut the support for the lunatic religious right. Everybody’s pious and observant until they’re on the balls of their ass. Then it’s he who gives me money gets my vote.
