I give you the new House Minority Leader, Darren Jackson:
Still no answer. If HB2 was about privacy and safety, both of which are addressed in HB186, why do we need a referendum on people's rights? https://t.co/sXm32G56zi

Because it's not about what we need, it's about Republicans' continuous bullying tactics.

This HB2.0 issue is generating a whole lot of interest, and a whole lot of rubbish, too:

No matter how you slice it, putting civil rights up for a popular vote via referendum is *not* democracy, it's the tyranny of the majority. Can you imagine if the Loving case had never happened, and Virginia (or North Carolina) had put a state-wide Constitutional Amendment on the ballot outlawing mixed-race marriages? Hell, it might even pass now, but it damned sure would have 50-60 years ago. We shouldn't even be debating this, but two jackass Democrats thought they could score some goddamn points. I am so over their crap I can't even think about it without wanting to break something.
More mindless drivel:

Blah blah blah bi-partisan, blah blah blah compromise, blah blah blah reasonable. :(

What Evan said. Again, I can't believe we're even having this discussion.

That is a picture of George Washington, dingus. Probably homeschooled...

Okay, this is all kinds of fucked up:
Politico published a story Sunday morning by Alex Isenstadt and Annie Karni on a surprise meeting called by White House press secretary Sean Spicer to examine aides’ phones and other electronic devices for evidence of leaks.
When multiple sources leaked details of that meeting to Isenstadt and Karni, it appears other White House officials slapped back at one of the Politico reporters using the death of a Navy SEAL killed just days after President Donald Trump’s inauguration in a controversial Yemen raid.
The Washington Examiner published a story Sunday evening, about six and a half hours after the “phone check” report broke, that claims one of the Politico reporters mocked a Trump aide’s emotional reaction to the death of Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens.
Politico’s editor, Carrie Budoff Brown, accused the White House of anonymously planting a false story to smear one of the website’s reporters.
Yeah, it wasn't just a smear, it was a monumental distraction. *The press secretary collected people's phones and read their personal stuff.* What the hell kind of third-world country are we living in?

That's how you do it. David Price has never (to my knowledge) shirked his responsibility to hear his constituents.

Burr is neck deep in this Russia mess, and this may be one Mr. Teflon can't shake off:

And he honestly believes he did nothing wrong being sposkesbot for the Kremlin when he talked with reporters. Dude is clueless.

I don't think that term "rock star" means what you think it means...

Says the Speaker of the House in a public Tweet designed to give him political gain. You can't make up a more hypocritical story than the one he lives.
On that sad and predictable note, here's your Onion:
