    • The Lack of Belief In Good
      Are humans good, bad or neutral? It’s an old philosophical debate, and not just in the West. Confucius thought they were born neutral, for example, while the later Confucian Mencius felt they were good, noting that everyone who saw a child fall into a well would be horrified. Others, including many Confucians and the Christian church, with original sin, have […]

Omg, Kevin, run!

Kevin McCarthy is OUTRAGED that Pelosi would play politics with the January 6 insurrection commission. Well, he’s entitled to his opinion. As I see it, Pelosi is outraged about the insurrection and is going to get to the bottom of it if it’s the last thing she does.

It’s Kevin who is making agreements and then cynically appointing bad faith actors who are guaranteed to highjack the hearings with staged and focus grouped antics. It’s especially bad that one of the appointees was a main actor in the insurrection. (Have you read Liz Cheney’s account Jim Jordan’s Getting the Wimmin To Safety moment during the attack on the Capitol? Liz Cheney dope slaps him so hard.) Anyway, Kevin says that if Jim Jordan can’t play, no one else Kevin appointed can either.

The effect is that the commission will be wildly imbalanced. No one told McCarthy he had to pull the plug on all his appointees. He chose to do that. And do you know why he chose to do that?

Kevin McCarthy is a

… wait for it…

POLITICIAN

{{cue the primal screaming}}

Yes, a politician is: “a person active in party politics, or a person holding or seeking an elected seat in government. Politicians propose, support, and create laws that govern the land and, by extension, its people. Broadly speaking, a “politician” can be anyone who seeks to achieve political power in the government.”

Kevin fits the definition of a person holding or seeking an elected seat in government.

Ok, Kevin is a really sh*##} politician because he doesn’t seem to give a fig about creating laws or governing. But he positively excels at using his position to be a total dick to the American people. You can’t say that about Pelosi. She’s definitely gotten more bills passed and gotten stuff done, fed more children, kept a roof over their heads, got their parents vaccines. You’d never catch Kevin doing stuff like that.

You have to wonder how Kevin can stand to be in the same room with himself- a politician. Doing politics. Or some half-assed, insincere, fraudulent version of politics. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t stand being in the same room with him. Ew, all that loathing.

Run away, Kevin! Run fast!!
