McConnell's plan is what I call the "Harkonnen Gambit".

For context, in the science fiction novel Dune, the evil Baron Harkonnen installs his despotic, universally reviled nephew Rabban as the ruler of the planet Arrakis. His plan is to let things get so bad that the people of Arrakis rise up, at which point the baron will sacrifice Rabban and replace him with his favorite nephew, Feyd-Rautha, positioning the new ruler as the one who saved Arrakis from tyrrany, thus ensuring that Arrakis will love its new Harkonnen despot.

In McConnell's case, he's capitalizing on the fact that Trump claimed responsibility for the shutdown (on camera!) like the fucking moron he is. Now all McConnell has to do is wait for things to get super bad, to the point where Trump's approval starts to tank even among Republicans. At that point he can pass whatever bill Congress can agree on, override Trump's inevitable veto, and effectively cut Trump off at the knees. Then Pence can move forward with 25'ing Trump, and McConnell and Pence will be hailed as saviors by right wing media.

I wish there was a way to frame all sociopolitical discussion in terms of Chuck Tingle literature.

I always preferred Hyperion or Rama to Dune.

Rama and Rama II should be read together. I know the game mixes both books together because of the reveal. But fun fact Arthur C Clarke appears in an FMV sequence in the game at the end. He lived long enough to be digitally recorded into a computer game.

Reddit/politics should rebrand itself a "universe" because it's the biggest collection of galaxy brains in existence:

Quote
If true, impeachment soon begins.

-Robert Reich, not known for making rash statements.

If Robert Reich is saying things like that, it makes me hopeful it will actually happen. I'd be a lot more hopeful if they had enough to take down Pence too first though, because that guy is organized enough to do serious damage when he takes office.

Quote
I feel like if Trump is impeached and compromised they shouldn't be allowed to put Pence in. He is clearly part of this, just by being VP

Quote
I think impeachment should start with Pence. I feel like it's Mueller's trap card and he's going to surprise everyone by taking that motherfucker down first. Then pelosi moves up, then impeach mango Mussolini. President pelosi (not my first choice but she's growing on me, I'm so-so on her though until I do my research) would just add insult to injury.


Quote
That's not how succession works, though. If the Vice President leaves office, the President nominates a new VP for Congressional confirmation (25th Amendment). The Speaker of the House only assumes the presidency if both the VP and POTUS are vacant (Presidential Succession Act of 1947).
Quote
Simpler answer then is to file impeachment for all of them at the same time.


Quote
My girlfriends mom suggested that she should appoint Hillary as her VP and step down so Hillary can be president. I had to stop myself from telling her that's the worst idea I've ever heard in my life. I settled for telling her that I think that would be the most reliable way to start a civil war.

Fund the entire liberal social justice agenda and give the Most Money For Dem Programs and 11 million new citizens to sign up for them all, as well as a siren call for new caravans to form.

What could possibly go wrong? :tuss:

The only time I think such a political deal worked out was when someone offered Chief Listerine a bottle of firewater and a sack of shiny beads for the entirety of his ancestral homelands.
Can someone please ID that fucking troon for me so I may begin twitter bullying him?
