Cease thy prating, o termagant woman!
Cease thy prating, o termagant woman!

Now that the Trump Era is fully in place, seems at least a couple of Southern Gentlemen are being anything but gentlemanly when it comes to the unspeakable rudeness of Senator Elizabeth Warren, who Started It Anyway when she read aloud Coretta Scott King’s testimony against Senator Jeff Sessions. Something about that nasty Elizabeth Warren just brings out the Inner Jerk in some Republican men, not that you’d really tell, since their Outer Jerk is pretty much all you see anyway. Consider this tweet from Mike “Mr. Decorum” Huckabee Wednesday, promoting a guest spot on Fox Business, in which the twice-failed presidential candidate and total holy man, you bet, promised to yell at Warren real good:

Yes, he went there — called her a “scold” and everything, as one must needs do when an unladylike harridan speaks ill of a good ol’ boy who’s never meaning no harm, except maybe to some blackamoors’ voting rights. Somehow he managed not to call her a harpy. We can also be thankful he’s a Huckabee of little learning, or he might have recommended she be fitted with a “scold’s bridle.”

But Elder Huckabee was not to be outdone in relishing the Massachusetts Senate-wench’s chastisement. Sen. Lindsey Graham, apparently worried that his occasional squeaks of opposition to Donald Trump might make him too tolerable to progressives, also took the opportunity to glory in Warren’s being told to stop quoting that turbulent civil rights negress at poor Sen. Sessions, since clearly Warren has no understanding of basic comity, and did rant so, like a woman possessed, as he explained on the Mike Gallagher Show Wednesday:

“The bottom line is, it was long overdue with her,” he said. “I mean, she is clearly running for the nomination in 2020.”

“The Democratic Party is being pushed really hard by the most extreme voices in their community, and they just don’t know how to handle it,” he added. “If they empower her, then I think the Democratic Party is gonna lose its way with the vast majority of the American people.”

Gallagher concurred, equating Warren’s shrill reading of the King letter to “the riots at Berkeley” and warning that “normal Americans” will quickly lose patience with how the Democratic party “appears to have lost its mind, as well as its soul.” In sooth! Reading a letter by a civil rights icon on the floor of the Senate is so very like hooded villains setting fire to rubbish in the streets, because both are actions that occur in a place. The parallels are truly horrifying.

And what of Elizabeth Warren? Has she listened carefully to the tuition of her learned betters, and vowed to trade her shrewish scolding for a proper, meek demeanour, as is only meet for a woman of quality? We cannot say it is so, gentle reader. Hearken to her reply to Elders Graham and Huckabee:

Borne on the Bayeux

(Actually, her real reaction might be even better: “Wow. Well, I guess there goes my rapprochement with Lindsey Graham.”)

      To be fair, compared to the Blue Dogs, SP Warren is extreme.

    The Democratic Party is being pushed really hard by the most extreme voices in their community, and they just don’t know how to handle it,” he added. “If they empower her, then I think the Democratic Party is gonna lose its way with the vast majority of the American people.

    Senator whose approval ratings are thirteen points lower than Elizabeth Warren’s says what now?

    • Tiny kaiju

      I think he meant to say”the vast of amounts of money given to me by a few American people.”

  • Persistent Demme

    Gotta say that I love to see the Goopers painting themselves into a corner.

    • Tiny kaiju

      When has that ever stopped them? They just run through the fresh paint screaming “The Democrats made us do it.”

  • Marceline

    Elizabeth Warren is the new Hillary Clinton. They are going to be laser focused on her in the hopes of kneecapping her for a 2020 run. That said, I completely forgot Mike Huckabee exists.

    • ThatGuy

      I don’t think she even wants to run in 2020. But I think she’ll be an excellent lightning rod until then, leaving the way clear for someone else.

      • Marceline

        I agree. Although I think a backlash by the purity voters is inevitable. That said, she may gain a hell of a lot of traction after the economy tanks.

      • cmd resistor

        I actually like her in this role of being a major thorn in the side of the asshole Senate. If that means being a nag, which is what the boys say when they don’t like what they hear, more power to her.

        • Marceline

          I’m hoping this is all part of an actual *strategy* by the Dems. Something with an eye on the midterms. At the very least, people are paying more attention to Congress in general and the Senate in particular and seeing how important it is. That alone might hopefully get some folks to the polls in 2018.

          • cmd resistor

            I will say that the local county dems seem to be doing some stuff, like voter registration NOW and other grassrootsy stuff. I should probably get involved because we are somewhat of a sane pocket in FLorida. The state dems are pretty lame, which I guess is how we ended up with such winners as Voldemort, Marco and the other fiends running the state.

    • Tiny kaiju

      But she comes with better public speaking skills and a crap ton less baggage.

  • arglebargle

    I was going to say, “they seem nice”, but instead I think I’ll go with a hearty, “Fucking sycophantic asswipes”.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    Reading a letter causes property damage now? And being silenced = censoring other speakers now?

      • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

        You said “go down” about Lindsey Graham. I don’t know if that’s an impugn or not.

  • Lefty Wright

    Let’s get one thing clear. Warren was impugning the character of the nominee for Attorney General. The fact he was a senator was strictly incidental. Enforcing such a ruling means that any sitting senator nominated for any post by the president, including cabinet positions or even Supreme Court justice cannot be properly vetted since criticism of actions or motives is not allowed. I think the constitutional requirement of advice and consent overrides those rules, which McConnell misused in the first place.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      McConnel and Sessions are both Nazi swine, fuck them.

      • Swampgas_Man

      Warren did nothing more than tell the truth about SeSessions’ vile career. I don’t think that’s impugning, is it? He’s worked very hard, his entire vicious, hateful life, to be uniquely unqualified to serve this nation as Attorney General.

    • Smibo

      “I think the constitutional requirement of advice and consent overrides those rules…

      Agreed.

      Hmm… Seems to me it’s either that, or else the rule completely disqualifies senators (as a group, or class) from being nominated for any position for which the constitutional requirement for senatorial “advice and consent” applies. That might also be unconstitutional, in that it restricts the President’s choice of nominees.

      Sounds like a conundrum some court may eventually be asked to resolve, but to this layman that rule looks like a steaming pile of unconstitutional crap either way. I know if I was a Senator, I’d be breaking it on the regular.

    • Meliflaw

    **** LINDSEY GRAHAM in “Suddenly Last November” ****

    “Oh my. But this heat is so oppressive.”, said Lindsey Graham to Dr. Cukrowicz, as they sat together in the parlor. “It certainly isn’t helping the situation with poor Elizabeth.”

    “It was suddenly last November when it all started and now she’s much worse. She’s had it coming for some time now. Why she just won’t stop with her obscene babbling. Doctor, I’ve gathered enough to know that her hideous attack on Senator Sessions’ moral character is indefensible, so I must be the defender. Listen to me… …before you hear whatever it is you will hear from her when she arrives… …my friend Jeff is a senator. The role of a senator is more than thankless it’s the role of a victim … a sacrificial victim I say.”

    “Well Mam, I can’t guarantee that a lobotomy would stop her babbling!”, says the doctor.

    Elizabeth enters and Lindsey goes silent. Disgusted, he stands and exits to the kitchen. As he leaves his eye falls upon Manolo and the other boys of the kitchen staff. Lindsey starts to make an amorous advance, but before he can complete the gesture, the young boys turn on him. They chase Lindsey through the rose garden and unfortunately poor Lindsey is eaten.

    THE END.

        I agree… But.. I fret… that 30- to 40-something percent of the electorate seems to endorse this unAmercan Bigotry as American, and the quaint old sort of Americanism that many of the rest of us cling to is being bigly out-maneuvered electorially. We need to get serious about pushing back, and I’m not sure we’re driven hard enough to counter the deep hatefulness of the other side…

    The Democratic Party has lost it’s mind??? The tea at the Tea Party he attended must have been spiked with acid. Remember the good old days when Republicans were all “Never Trump”? Remember the good old days when the Republican Party cared about the country? Remember the good old days before the Republican Party was polluted with tea? Don’t get me wrong, Reagan was the beginning of the “Gument is the Enemy” movement and for that he must always rein supreme as the chief GOP dickhead. But what the Republicans are doing now is trying to take down Warren before dshe even says shell run. They spent thirty years destroying Hillary and it paid off. Idiot Americans actually believed she was a liar and a crook – which isn’t and never was true. Now they want to go the “shrill woman” route with Warren. Well, I hope American women are tired of that malarkey. If not, tough, get used to women stepping up and speaking out. You go Elizabeth, you’ve got my vote.

    • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

      But they lost sight of their own humanity long ago. My point, I guess, is that as long as you don’t lose sight of your own humanity you should be okay. Anger and outrage are good, wanting to act on them are good, and you will remain good because YOU ARE NOT LIKE THEM! You care about those who are different from yourself. They don’t.

    “Gallagher concurred, equating Warren’s shrill reading of the King letter to “the riots at Berkeley” and warning that “normal Americans” will quickly lose patience with how the Democratic party “appears to have lost its mind, as well as its soul.”

      How fragile these weak men are, that the mere sound of a woman, quietly and firmly pointing out a differing point of view, seems like violent riots to them! It’s like the way the slaveowners feared their slaves, and kind of for the same reason. Not to mention that they also view peaceful protests as “riots,” after they themselves instigated the “violence.” As a proud Berkeley girl and a proud Berkeley grad, who demonstrated against Viet Nam way back when, because I am an oldz, (and we got the exact same “he’s your president, respect him” “USA–love it or leave it”)–(in fact Reagan was elected Governor “to take care of the Berkeley problem”) GO BEARS and GO WARREN.

    Democrats, especially of the liberal persuasion, are scrambling. The hatred and evil they have for all is a clear sign of the relationship they have kindled with Satan himself; their teacher and mentor of darkness. There is no one who is safe from their wicked and venomous attacks. The senator from Massachusetts received exactly what she deserved. It was a long time coming. I for one find it quite refreshing to see what was once idle threats by Republicans turn into action. For all of you libs who leeched onto the failed Obama socialist agenda there is a new leadership in town. A leadership that will WORK hard to make this country one that it’s citizenship will be proud of again. The time of chaos and confusion is over. The prayers of many have been answered; Almighty God is in control, He will take care of this nation. You can either work with us or stay on the porch and out of the way. Your time is up. It is time to rebuild a nation.

    • Christopher Story

      Socialism, huh? So what is Matthew chapter 25’s parable of the sheep and the mean to you? Those who don’t feed and clothe the stranger, heal the sick and minister to those in jail are the ones told by Jesus to be away from him and into the ever lasting destruction that has been stored up for them since the founding of the world.

      • Don Downing

        Everything talked about by Jesus was individual charity or a church’s responsibility. Never did he talk about the government being responsible for that or we hold the government responsible for charity.

        • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

          Everything talked about by Jesus was also shit going on around the Iron Age. Maybe we learned a thing or two since then, you think?

          We seem to have gotten it pretty right here in OUR century, what since the New Deal and all. People live a lot longer than your average apostle, and they don’t think the world is flat, because it isn’t.

      You do realize that Jesus feeding crowds of 4,000 and 5,000, while also healing them of their ailments and educating them, FOR FREE was the original HANDOUT, don’t you?

      Doesn’t being Christian mean behaving like Jesus; you know, walking in his footsteps and following his example. If Jesus gave handouts for free, then Christians are morally obligated to behave the same way. What’s so difficult about that?

      Why do hate Jesus?

      Demons, you say?! Fie, alas, alack, did you just come from Medieval times or something? A spot of ergot in your wheat?* Is the black plague bad, back from yon whence you came?

      Sorry pal, but you’re in the wrong era. Your mega-church may vacuum your peanuts out of your wallet and tell you that it does good with them, but the collective power of the taxpayers of the USA is actually far more powerful, has deeper pockets, and does provable real good for those in need, using actual measurable results and not magical thinking. And comes without silly invisible demons, imploring sky daddies with magical incantations, and other imaginary hogwash that (sorry) small minds seem to find so appealing.

      Weird how you find it so easy to turn those you disagree with into mythical demons of evil. We’re just people, just like you. People trying to make sure we do right by each other. People who know that some folks don’t catch a break and need our collective assistance now and again.

      I look at you and I just see a misguided person with some weird-ass backwards beliefs, but I don’t have to imagine that you’re imbued with some magical force that only me and my personally-involved omnipotent deity actually can see. And that Donald Trump is somehow good? And just? And will take care of anything … other than aggrandizing himself? LOL No. Really. Come on. That’s a bridge too far. Come on back down to Earth.

America’s days are numbered alright but not because of those you deem sinful or “affiliated with Satan” America is doomed because you put a lunatic and a cadre of hate filled fear mongers into power.

      Matthew 25: 34-40 “Then
      the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of
      My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of
      the world. 35For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'”

      Nowhere in there does it say, “When I was hungry you took away my food stamps. When I was thirsty, you removed clean water regulations and put lead and arsenic in my water. I was a stranger and you ejected me from your house and you told me I could not come in because I was from the Middle East and you were a coward. Naked and you took away my unemployment benefits so that I could not be clothed. I was sick and you took away my healthcare so that I would die. I was in prison and you told me the conditions should be harsher.”

      Be wary, worshiper of the little god of Republicanism, lest you end up on the left side of the Lord’s throne.
