2022 is not a policy battle. It's a battle of Volume plain and simple.

I hope Democrats understand this. They need to be very very loud and outraged about sedition, violence and fascism.

Funny heard on Steph Miller this morning: MTG looks like Barney Rubble

in her ever-present arms-bearing sheath dress and cinder block build

We successfully defended 2 school board seats from stealth sneaky Q write-in attacks

thought they could take advantage of low-turnout to write-in racist rabid bigot freaks

didn't happen


It could have been bad.

MTG does not have any district offices - only 2 PO Boxes. nt

Liz Cheney carries the mantle of Margaret Chase Smith. NOT Susan Collins

Apparently Susan Collins like to fancy herself as a modern-day Margaret Chase Smith. Seriously. She does.

WRONG. WRONG WRONG SUSAN! Susan Collins is just another partisan mealy-mouthed worm subservient to the every whim and order of malicious sleaze bag Mitch McConnell. She's no moral beacon. She's no hero.

The person who does carry the mantle of Margaret Chase Smith is Liz Cheney.

Let's rub Susan's face in it. Very publicly.


Margaret Madeline Chase Smith (December 14, 1897 – May 29, 1995)[1] was an American politician. A member of the Republican Party, she served as a U.S Representative (1940–1949) and a U.S. Senator (1949–1973) from Maine.[2] She was the first woman to serve in both houses of the United States Congress, and the first woman to represent Maine in either.[3] A moderate Republican, she was among the first to criticize the tactics of Joseph McCarthy in her 1950 speech, "Declaration of Conscience".[4]


On June 1, 1950, Smith delivered a fifteen-minute speech on the Senate floor, known as the "Declaration of Conscience," in which she refused to name McCarthy directly but denounced "the reckless abandon in which unproved charges have been hurled from this side of the aisle."[25] She said McCarthyism had "debased" the Senate to "the level of a forum of hate and character assassination."[4] She defended every American's "right to criticize ... right to hold unpopular beliefs ... right to protest; the right of independent thought."[26] While acknowledging her desire for Republicans' political success, she said, "I don't want to see the Republican Party ride to political victory on the four horsemen of calumny—fear, ignorance, bigotry, and smear."[14] Six other moderate Republican Senators signed onto her Declaration: Wayne Morse of Oregon, George Aiken of Vermont, Edward Thye of Minnesota, Irving Ives of New York, Charles Tobey of New Hampshire, and Robert C. Hendrickson of New Jersey.[25]

In response to her speech, McCarthy referred to Smith and the six other Senators as "Snow White and the Six Dwarfs."[14] He removed her as a member of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, giving her seat to Senator Richard Nixon of California.[24] He also helped finance an unsuccessful primary challenger during Smith's re-election campaign in 1954.[13] Smith later observed, "If I am to be remembered in history, it will not be because of legislative accomplishments, but for an act I took as a legislator in the U.S. Senate when on June 1, 1950, I spoke ... in condemnation of McCarthyism, when the junior Senator from Wisconsin had the Senate paralyzed with fear that he would purge any Senator who disagreed with him."[22] She voted for McCarthy's censure in 1954.[10]

The GOP is going all-in on Election Nullification and apartheid minority rule. nt
