But there are tens of millions of dipshits who will read that thing about litter boxes for kids who idenitify as cats, think it's true, and even it's proven to be a joke, they'll still think it's true because they want to believe it.

Read somewhere that the squad symbolically voted against it (knowing it would pass) in order to draw attention to
a food aid bill that is not getting any traction and is aimed at helping countries dealing with food insecurity being caused by this war.

Still a very bad look on them cause you know how the media is. The story of their protest vote is being completely overshadowed by them voting against this bill.

Yeah, it’s kind of pointless when no one even knows what your “protest vote” was about.

And honestly, protest votes always kind of rub me the wrong way anyway. Either vote for a bill or don’t. I want to see what your record REALLY is. Not all your bullshit excuses as to why you voted one way or the other. I’m sure they’d understand MY protest vote for another candidate come election time.

Yeah, I don't think Mitt's narrative is going to play particularly well with anyone other than maybe the rabid GOP base.

Well, I can certainly see what the government is spending some of its money on, that's doing nothing productive...
