Anyone Else Think That Many Elected Congressional Repug's Are Like 'Shock Jocks'?.....

Think Howard Stern and in Chicago - Steve Dahl.

Many of the Repugs are trying to say and do things that are more shocking, nonsensical and absurd - just to top one of the other Repug's making shocking statements.

1. They're trolls who have escaped the Internet

and are running amok IRL.

2. "You can never be too conservative" now means you can never be too batshit crazy.

That anyone still calls the Republican Party conservative is a joke.

3. They think that's their job.

They have to constantly come up with more deplorable shit to say and do in order to outrage Democrats. They have to own the libs all the time. No rest for the wicked. They don't believe in passing legislation because that would be more government regulation, so they pull stunts to entertain the RW trash.

4. Someone who actually knows what a shock jock is.

I’m impressed, especially after reading so often in the last week that Limbaugh was a shock jock. He wasn’t. Not even when he WAS a jock.

6. More to the point, think Rush, Sean, Mark Levin, Michael Savage,

...Charlie Sykes for decades before his NeverTrump handwashing of his career, etc.

14. Dead, stupid, nails-on-a-chalkboard voice, just plain weird, and ...

an opportunistic wingnut.

Sounds like the Republican A Team to me!

7. Good analogy.

Matt Gaetz gets it too:

"If you aren't making headlines, you aren't governing"

9. This is what passes for internal power struggle within the GOP.

They are all competing for the crucial moron vote.

10. Much more like Joe Rogan and Alex Jones - complete assholes

Dahl was the original (liked/disliked him). Stern is very funny at times. But Rogan and Jones are humorless, vitriolic idiots and the current Repugs are displaying the same behavior.

11. That's my take on it exactly.

I think the strategy is: do and say the most outrageous things you can think of, every day. Keep yourself in the limelight, make yourself a celebrity among the Deplorables, and fame and fortune will be yours.

12. And you know what keeps them going?? People who hate them the most and give them attention.

Reminds me of a quote from the Howard Stern movie Private Parts when they are looking at this ratings.

I'm summarizing here, but they said people who love Stern listened for 45 minutes per day on average and people who hate Stern listened for 2 hours on average because they wanted to hear what he was going to say next so they could get mad about it.

If we ignore Greene and Boebert and Trump they will all go away, but they are media gold for the news organizations because people have to tune in to see what crazy thing they said that day.

13. Liberals dream of using government to help people. Conservatives just like to piss people off.
