Virginia Rep. Dave Brat has got some problems these days. Problems with the ladies.

For you see, he can’t go a single day without ladies getting “all up in his grill” over not wanting to lose Obamacare. Because for some weird reason, they don’t want to not have healthcare. Weird!

Brat is a Tea Party loon who ran against Eric Cantor from the right and won his seat, because that was back in the heady days of “Hey! Let’s just elect a bunch of random dentists or whatever to Congress! We’re sure they’ll be fine!” You may remember Brat from that time he got real mad at Obama for mentioning Jesus, because conservatives OWN Jesus and no one else can mention him ever, or that time he cited Socrates to explain why slashing education funding for poor kids was a swell idea.

And now here he is, hollering about being pestered by health-care loving ladies at a little get-together of his conservative buddies. Oh how they laugh and laugh about women not wanting to lose their healthcare and being all annoying about it.

“Since Obamacare and these issues have come up, the women are in my grill no matter where I go,” said Brat, “They come up — ‘When is your next town hall?’ And believe me, it’s not to give positive input.”

Aw! Why does no one in Virginia’s Seventh District want to have a town hall where they just compliment Dave Brat the whole time? Maybe just to tell him he’s pretty, and definitely not the doofiest man who ever did live.

The Facebook group that posted the video calls itself “7th District Town Hall Meeting” and is among the groups pressuring Brat to hold a town hall and speak to his constituents. You know, the people who pay his salary and are thus under the impression that he should have to deal with them once in a while.

But Brat doesn’t want to have one. Not yet anyway. In a Facebook post, Rep. Brat explained that he would prefer to stick to his own people and ignore his constituents for the next 100 days.

“Over the past couple of weeks my office has been inundated with phone calls, and emails and comments on social media requesting a town hall meeting, and believe me, I fully intend to have plenty of town halls that are open and transparent as soon as our first 100 days agenda is implemented and we come up for a breath of air.”

He is also pretty darn sure that all the people protesting him and Donald Trump are being paid to do so, he explained to the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

“I had one woman on my Facebook say she was going to get up in my grill,” he said. “There’s paid protesters … paid activists on the far left, not my Democratic friends I go to church with.
“They’re being paid to go around and raise havoc.”

How freaking narcissistic do you have to be to truly believe that the only people who would disagree with you must be paid to do so? Really! I cannot even fathom it. Also, if this is such a common thing, then why can’t these people ever find any evidence of this actually happening? The closest they’ve come was a service that turned out to be a hoax.

However, if this all teaches us one thing, it is that we need to STAY IN DAVE BRAT’S GRILL. We must stay in all the grills, and not relent, ever. Because it’s driving them bonkers. Even if there is no chance of them going against Trump, keep calling your representatives and bothering the shit out of them, so at the very least they never know a moment’s peace.

      • Marceline

        I’ve basically turned myself into the political equivalent of Portman’s ex-girlfriend: daily phone calls and stalking his Facebook page. As I’ve struggled to find a form of activism that works for me going forward, I’ve turned him into my pet project.

            Same here. I’m getting better with each call. Now I keep it short. My name and zip code. Then I say “I’m calling for two reasons. One, to ask the Senator to vote against (Cabinet member up for a vote ) and two, to request that he hold at least one town meeting in Ohio to answer questions from his constituents about the ACA.” I’ve yet to talk to a human being so these are all voice mails. Other people say they’ve gotten to talk to a legislative aide.

      Everything. They don’t get any of it and they don’t want to. They hate the public and they’ve never had any intention of serving them. They were infiltrated by religious extremists, literal Nazis, and corporate pirates decades ago and this is the result. An elitist class who hates those they have to pretend to serve (although with a Nazi dictator in office now, that pretense of service is dropping quickly and they don’t care who knows it).

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    That’s a little counter-intuitive: we’re going to get rid of 18 million people and costs are going to go up? How can that happen?

    Let’s ask an expert:

    And now comes the reality of the “repeal and replace” initiatives from the Republicans. If the uncertainty of this market was large before with the ACA, it is almost unknowable under whatever comes next. Thus the initial exit of some latecomers, including United Healthcare, and undercapitalized minor entrants, such as nonprofit co-ops, is almost certain to become a flood of firms leaving the exchanges. They have little choice since the risks are too large and the actuarially appropriate rates are still not obvious given the political turmoil and changing rules.

    Some in Congress seem to think that passing the “repeal” part immediately but delaying its implementation for two or three years will somehow leave everything as it is now. But this naive notion misses the fact that the riskiness of the Obamacare individual insurance exchange markets will have been ramped up to such a level that continuing makes no sense.

    Even if a company reaches break-even in the “delay” years, it will lose when the repeal is effective. If the premium subsidies now available to lower-income enrollees go away immediately and the mandate to sign up for an insurance plan disappears, then the number of people purchasing individual policies on the exchanges will drop like a rock. In fact, it is clear that even debating this scenario is likely to be self-fulfilling, since insurers must decide on their participation for 2018 by the late spring of 2017. Look for many to leave then.

    tl;dr: another day, another wingnut doesn’t know what the fuck…

    • msanthropesmr

      He’s only an economics professor. Can’t expect much outta him.

  • disqus_lWwzrwNaw6

    The Germaine Greer quotation is always apposite: “Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.”

    Greer also said, “Freedom is fragile and must be protected. To sacrifice it, even as a temporary measure, is to betray it,” and that also seems relevant as we consider what these fascist bastards are cooking up for us all, while everybody’s distracted by the Great Orange Kahuna and his wolf pack of tubby, malevolent fascists in the White House.

    • C4TWOMAN

      Greer is insightful, but she’s also a bit of a transphobe, fyi.

      • disqus_lWwzrwNaw6

        She is far from perfect. I actually dislike a lot of what she’s had to say over the decades. Her intolerance goes beyond the merely generational, it’s stubborn and self-involved.

        But the insight that men–ordinary, heterosexual men, very possibly married or in a relationship, the husbands of women, the fathers of daughters, the sons of mothers–that these men often actually deeply loathe women, is a true thing. Profoundly so.

        Until women understand that even the men who love them may well also hate them, women will not understand their own lives, the undercurrents and nuances and strange inexplicable roadblocks and blank spaces.

        • C4TWOMAN

          I think it’s an old insight that was true at one time, when males were basically given two conflicting messages: male entitlement and mr nice guy and blamed women for their ambivalent feelings. I get none of this ambivalence from gen-Y or millennials and it’s unlikely they’re all “hiding” it. They literally haven’t internalized either entitlement or that wominz are responsible for their feelings. That’s where that “hate” comes from IMO.

          So at this point Greer is speaking to the fading generation where that applied. Unfortunately, many of those people still have positions of power.

          The real mistake women have made, re males in their lives, is confusing trust with faith. I have an ex who even though he was a millennial, had a lot of misplaced anger. The difference between previous generations is, neither I nor his fellow millennial friends(many female) would let him get away with his shit. (He is my EX after all). In another time, we’d all be expected to “put up with it” instead of him proving he can be trusted by his actions, not flowery words or well intended “I’m sorrys” of the moment but not changing behaviour.

          So yeah, Greer is smarts but even smart people don’t get it all right all the time. Or perhaps she has published updated insights and I haven’t seen them.

          • Claire

            So how does your viewpoint account for the existence of Gamergate and MRAs? Because I genuinely can’t reconcile your statements with a reality in which those two movements exist.

          • C4TWOMAN

            You know when I was writing I was thinking something similar but I’d like to leave the “500 word comment trying to cover every conceivable misinterpretation syndrome” behind, yeh?

            But it’s a fair question. To answer: Greer’s point was directed at men in women’s lives that in most cases really do love them, in their way, but have also have mondo baggage they might at the same time be resenting those women for, not Internets randoms attacking attacking women they don’t know for “reasons”. Completely different dynamic.

            Oh, and my “viewpoint” comes very close to sounding a teensy bit condescending. Not sure if it was meant that way, but the males in my life really do know they can’t fuck with me. As in I’m physically too powerful for that to even get off the ground. It changes the dynamics when one is equal or stronger than the male in question. He can bitch all he wants and it sure can be annoying until I decide it’s not worth it, but at no point is my actual safety threatened.

          • Claire

            I am often condescending, but not with a word as innocuous as “viewpoint;” which it seems to me takes considerable effort of will to read condescension into, let alone an aspersion on your physical strength, the safety or lack thereof of your life situation, and your relationship with the men in your life. I genuinely have no idea what any of those things have to do with the topic of discussion, but thank you for the explanation in your second paragraph.

          • C4TWOMAN

            Well, I did say I wasn’t sure. And if you’re as familiar with these issues as you seem, surely you’ve seen this in action. Yes, “viewpoint’ is pretty innocuous…except when it implies that’s JUST “your view” as I’ve heard it used in similar discussion. So if you’re saying that ISN’T all all what you meant, I’ll accept that. It still leaves me wondering why you’d say it that way…

            All these discussions boil down to power dynamics. Often the person who’s implying this is ‘just my view’ (apparently NOT yourself?) are struggling with internalized sexism of their own(probably NOT yourself) and assume people who have my view are just naive and inexperienced, and don’t understand the violence “out there” if you’re not careful, and how “nice guys” work.

            Even if true, it’s all irrelevant when one has equal physical power. These people (NOT you) also tend to not believe women can have equal physical power. And that is the source of the belief that my view is just a “viewpoint” as opposed to a reality that is not based on anyone’s approval, permission or protection.

          • Claire

            Jesus take the wheel. I used the word “viewpoint” because you presented a point of view and I was asking how you reconciled it with observable reality, not to mention the experiences of women who have been harassed and threatened online, which your argument erased. I have never seen the word “viewpoint” used in a derogatory or dismissive fashion and you are the first person I have ever seen believe that it has some sort of hidden sexist meaning. I was unaware that it was on The List Of Words We Can’t Say because I have literally never seen another person complain about anyone saying it, and I’ve seen people complain about very nearly every other word imaginable

            If you think you’re serving the cause by calling other liberals out for using completely neutral words in a manner that you have decided, for mysterious reasons, represents internalized sexism, you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the reason nothing ever gets done.

          • C4TWOMAN

            Hmm…okay. Gone straight to wall of text now? I had accepted that I was probably wrong about you sounding like someone needling or trying to start a fight. Probably just someone not familiar with how things can sound on the Internet or who’s never been in a flame war with passive aggressive shit flying around. It really was cool.

            BUT…now imma a thinking my first instinct was right. So you have a very pleasant day, yeh?

            Ta.

    On Wednesday, Reuters reported (in great detail) how 19.5% of Rosneft, Russia’s state oil company, has been sold to parties unknown. This was done through a dizzying array of shell companies, so that the most that can be said with certainty now is that the money “paying” for it was originally loaned out to the shell layers by VTB (the government’s official bank), even though it’s highly unclear who, if anyone, would be paying that loan back; and the recipients have been traced as far as some Cayman Islands shell companies.

    In fact, if the questions posed by constituents can’t be answered by; “lower taxes”, “state’s rights”, “Christian beliefs”, or “small government” then they are screened right the hell out of there.

      That’s what my city looks like on the district map too. It’s broken up into different districts that have MASSIVE swathes of rural areas plus a teeny piece of increasingly blue San Antonio.

    Republicans have been told not to hold town halls because they themselves used them to great political effect back in 2009-2010, with a whole lot of help from their friends at cable TV, and they’re simply not going to let Democrats employ the same tactic.

    Meanwhile, they’re hard at work discrediting protesters and critics, and you can be sure there are going to be “incidents” which will be presented in the national press as the kind of thing that happens when radicals (possibly paid radicals) are allowed to abuse the First Amendment rights given to real Americans, and maybe it’s time to revisit the First Amendment.

    And then we’ll be back to total radio silence, as we experienced after the turn of the century, when hundreds of thousands demonstrated against George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq, went home and turned on the nightly news, and saw stories about cute puppies doing tricks, about the president being presidential (but also the kinda guy America wanted to have a beer with), and the stock market report.

    Paid? They’re getting paid? And here I am, still waiting on my check from the Kremlin for all my demonstrating in the sixties and seventies….

    • Jack Tenhet

      Yeah! There’s supposed to be pay? I never even got any snacks. We were hosed!

      • Zyxomma

        I did get snacks. Before the women’s march, at the nearby synagogue where we met, there was a special “for marchers” table with fruit and other portables. It was a special table because they’d laid out a huge spread for both congregants and marchers, including challah and wine.

    His “grill” contains more teeth than is standard for a human being. Someone needs to seriously get up in that shit.

  • Mavenmaven

    That Soros sure is all powerful, he can be every two-bit Republicans’ scapegoat.

    • cats530

      According to some wingnut on Yahoo, he’s paying $25.00 an hour for agitators. Where do I sign up?

      • Zyxomma

        I’ve never found out where, and I’m damned good at all aspects of protesting: sign making, organizing, marching, even KNITTING.

      • H0mer0

        Shhh! my receptionist just asked for a raise. I don’t want her to see she has other options (just kidding)

  • Alternative Pony Ron

    I had a girl up in my grille once, but fortunately she decided not to have me charged with negligence, and it was easy to straighten out the chrome.

  • Jack Tenhet

    And this is officially the day “up in my grill” was never again uttered by a single African American because the whitest dude since whiteness was a thing, Brat, actually said it. To Brat, I say “Jesus Christ! Get all up in my grill about that, whack job!’

  • Angela Ruzzo

    Did I ever mention on Wonkette that I wrote to Senator David Vitter when I was suffering the hideous after-effects of legislative corruption following Hurricane Katrina, and he wrote me back saying “I don’t represent the citizens of Louisiana, I represent the federal government.”

    Say what? That’s not what they taught me about how Congress works in 8th grade Civics class.

    I think this Brat jackass has the same “failure to communicate” that David Vitter did. Perhaps he shares some of Vitter’s little hobbies.

    • Zyxomma

      It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

    • I thought “his kind”* didn’t like federal government.

      *By which i mean “assholes.” Sorry about that, Wonkette. I’ll work on my relentless bias against them.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Good point. Most assholes like whatever gets them out of doing any work and puts money in their pocket. Congress members are no exception.

  • CATMAN

    When I hear the Congressman’s name, why do the words “whiny little” pop into my head?

  • OtterQueen

    Ah, but he will be at a Town Hall meeting… just not one for his constituents.

    • Zyxomma

      Good catch, even if you do live nearby.

      • Mary Stone

        Everybody, bring rotten vegetables, and an artisanal, carefully curated selection of formaldehyde-preserved dissection animals that you’ve aged gently in a plastic storage bin stored in a warm, moist place for several days. You’ve got 22 days to age your collection to the perfect state of semiliquid decomposition.

        you’ll know what to do with it when you get to the town hall. Something will occur to you when Dave the Brat opens his mouth.

        Teach him the true meaning of “all up in my grill” will you?

        But don’t forget your rubber gloves.

  • Jo Mathie

    “They’re being paid to go around and raise havoc.”

    Ha ha ha. Come on, half the world is having protests against Trump and we don’t even live in America. I’m pretty sure you’d have to pay people worried about their healthcare and rights “not” to protest if they were your actual representative.

  • mailman27

    It’s kinda funny– not laugh-out loud fun– oh hell, it’s not funny at all. But anyway, most people with a firm-to-moderate grip on reality wouldn’t buy this “paid protester” nonsense for a goddam second. That the 25% of our fellow citizens who comprise the Trumpanzee vote do go for it buys the “discussion” of this bullshit an hour’s worth of programming on Fox’s laughable “news.” And here we are.

    • artem1s

      srsly, wouldn’t it just be easier to pay the WWC (you know, morons) to sit at home on election day and watch Duck Dynasty?

  • I doubt anyone would bitch at him if he wasn’t a shit sandwich wrapped in a douchebag carried by an asshole.

  • Zyxomma

    I WISH there were someone who would pay us (me) to protest. I’m good at it, and I need a job. I’ve been job hunting for w-a-a-a-a-a-y too long.

    • azeyote

      i wish someone would pay me to have a car and meet with all the ladies

  • Celtic_Gnome

    Oh, they thought they were so clever in 2009 when they organized their people to shit all over Democrats at their townhalls about the Affordable Care Act. It never occurred to them tat they could one day be on the receiving end of that treatment.

    • cyninoregon

      That was the Koch Bros. hijacking the fools, transfering their tea party anger and switching it to Obama. Pretty smart of Kochs, but these ppl are record-setting stupid.

    • H0mer0

      I recall there was some lady at one of the town hall meetings who somehow equated the ACA with having a “tiger-by-the-tail” and that was the mood of the “American People.” I am still missing what they were so pissed off about. It was a plan thought up by the Heritage Foundation. One tea partier described it as a Nazi program and I wondered “hmmm, providing affordable healthcare is akin to the systematic extermination of 11 million people? Is it opposite day or something?”

  • rosalita

    He held a virtual town hall on Facebook Live tonight in which he yammered away, answered very few questions and apparently had his assistant deleted negative comments. I can’t believe this guy is my congressman.

  • Mary Stone

    No one has said “all up in my grill” since 2000 or so. Find yourself a nice pair of acid-wash mom jeans, Dave, make sure they’re the high-waisted kind that make your butt look like two hippopotamuses fighting in a bag. You’ll be au courant…for 1999.

    Also too: fuck off.

    • I know. I was like, ease up there, Missy Elliot, before you start wondering if we can pay your billz (but a chick does gotta live, so Iguess I can understand his concern)

  • Mike Steele

    Lady MS here: Couldn’t get past 3:30 on the video, as I’m not near a barf bucket. Will, however, notify Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (20+ yr. member) of Brat’s plan to mobilize through his “christian” connections. It’s a fine line between issue advocacy and campaigning.

  • So does that mean that the people who were protesting Sheldon Whitehouse get time-and-a-half?
    http://www.providencejournal.com/news/20170130/obstruct-senator-whitehouse-gets-earful-on-trump-nominees

    How devious of the “far-left” Dems to pay people to protest their own. 🙄
