Battling Crazies

It is not much of a secret that I have little use for babbling buffoons in our Congress…..and 2 of the biggest and loudest babblers are MTG of Georgia and Boebert of Colorado….

They are two high-profile congresswomen on the right who might be mistaken for what Politico calls “MAGA twins” from a distance. But friction between Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Lauren Boebert of Colorado has spilled into public in a big way in recent days. It began when Boebert was asked whether she is on board with Greene’s support of Kevin McCarthy to be the next House speaker. “I’ve been aligned with Marjorie and accused of believing a lot of the things that she believes in,” Boebert said. “I don’t believe in this just like I don’t believe in … Jewish space lasers.” The latter is a shot at a widely ridiculed conspiracy theory (the lasers were supposedly causing California wildfires) that Greene once floated on Facebook, per Insider.

Greene quickly fired back in a heated Twitter thread. “I’ve supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. President Trump has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. Kevin McCarthy has supported and donated to Lauren Boebert. She just barely came through by 500 votes,” Greene wrote, referring to her colleague’s close reelection victory. “She gladly takes our $$$ but when she’s been asked: Lauren refuses to endorse President Trump, she refuses to support Kevin McCarthy, and she childishly threw me under the bus for a cheap sound bite.” Greene also accused Boebert of taking part in “high school drama.”

The Politico story adds that such friction goes back to at least April, when the pair got into an argument at a House Freedom Caucus forum over Greene’s attendance at a white nationalist rally. “Their confrontation grew so heated that at least one onlooker feared the Greene-Boebert back-and-forth might escalate beyond the verbal cage match had another board member not stepped in to de-escalate,” per the story, which adds that Boebert “detests” being linked to Greene. The Colorado congresswoman has not responded to the Greene criticism. The Daily Beast notes that both women, seated near other, famously heckled President Biden during his State of the Union speech earlier this year

Could this be a set-up for a truly disturbing Congress in 2023?

To me it will be nothing more than theatrics and a disruption in the proceedings.

Any thoughts?

  1. Here’s the way I see this nonsense playing out with the GOP… they barely won the election.. no Red Wave… they are a split and busted up faction of anything organized. They have the House for two years.. and MTG, Jordan, Gaetz, et al, all want their revenge investigations from all their committees, and diving into laptops and emails…. NOTHING will get done according to their agenda (whatever that even is these days)… and next thing you know 2024 will be upon us and the Dems get all of Congress. So let them just consume themselves. They haven’t got the Senate, or the President’s signature, and no breathing room to even imaging overriding that. Oh.. and Trump? (ha.. see.. I already forgot about him!)
    Just sit back and watch it happen.

  2. This kind always bares their claws when another threatens to grab center stage. Kind of like two chimpanzees trying to impress each other by seeing who can throw their sticks at the earth with enough force to try to convince which of them is the most dominant primality. Ape show.

    I thought about leaving the following comment, but then I thought I would enjoy reblogging post more.

    I really appreciate the objective analysis. Got to admit your party is phenomenal in its discipline, but then again so are Nazis and the Communists.

    I am tempted to suppose these two Republican ladies are the most awful bigots by the standards of Liberal Democrats. After all, that is why the Liberal Democrat mass media as turned them into high profile congresswomen. However, the moral standards of Liberal Democrats require racism, sexism, genderism, disabilityism, religious bigotry, class envy, and so forth. So, when Democrats complain about the racism, sexism, genderism, disabilityism, religious bigotry, class envy, and so forth of others, what they are usually complaining about is that those others are not the sort of bigots that Democrats insist we be.

    What the feud between these ladies? The problem with independent people it is difficult to get them to work together. Dictatorship purports to solves that problem, but it doesn’t. Dictatorship just offers a final solution, one that has to be implemented until everyone except the dictator is dead. That’s a rather extreme way to implement population control, but Liberal Democrats are if nothing else quite extreme.

    Anyway, Liberal Democrats do seem to like calling people names and rioting. So, we can rightly suppose that they secretly admire Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Lauren Boebert of Colorado. Why else would they be so attentive to their feuding?
