The good news is that this now means that immigration is fixed now, right?

    The bad news is that the GQP is down to 3 principled members.

    And I’ll bet Lardass A. Drumpf will not rest until all of them are primaried.

  2. Mikey says:

    A pointless and stupid waste of time, but pointless and stupid is pretty much the whole of today’s GOP.

  3. Kylopod says:

    Ukraine aid? Wait and see.

    Israel aid? Wait and see.

    Secure the borders? Wait and see.

    Impeach Mayorkas? No time to waste!

  4. ptfe says:

    Not a high crime or misdemeanor to be seen.

    This is heavy ammo freely passed across the aisle. The only people who think policy fights should all result in impeachment are the far right loons. House Republicans haven’t moved on the border because they can’t compromise. This just shows them to be incompetent clowns.

  5. reid says:

    @Kathy: I think two of them have decided not to run for re-election (Gallagher and Buck). Same result, though hopefully they’ll be replaced by Democrats.

  6. EddieInCA says:

    It passed only because two Dems were out sick – one with Covid.

    They had to do it today, otherwise, with the Santos seat about to go Blue, they wouldn’t have the votes, with the three GOP defections

  7. Gavin says:

    Because Trump got indicted and Republicans are always butthurt they’re held accountable for anything ever, them indicting someone who didn’t do anything wrong proves… what, exactly?

  8. Charley in Cleveland says:

    My district is represented by a first term clown named Max Miller – grandson of a millionaire who worked in the Trump White House . In his initial reach out mailer, he identified himself as “your Republican representative in Congress.” Earlier this week he listed impeaching Mayorkas as being on his to do list, right after bragging about “progress” in fixing the border. He feels no shame in hyping the money coming to NE Ohio by virtue of Biden legislation he voted against. He’s Matt Gaetz without the gas mask, and sadly representative of the kind of loon that gets elected in Ohio by virtue of the (R) after his name.

  9. Kevin says:

    @ptfe: Not only can they not compromise, they can’t accept getting everything they want.

  10. Hal_10000 says:

    So let me get this straight. Speaker Johnson won’t consider a bill to solve the border crisis. He won’t consider a bill to provide critical aide to Ukraine. But he will bend over backwards to push a DOA impeachment.

    They’ll be biting the heads off chickens by June.

  11. Kathy says:


    Come to think of it, I half recall hearing something about that.

    In any case, Lardass can claim credit for getting rid of them dirty RINOs.

  12. charontwo says:

    I care more about the time the Senate needs to waste on this. How much?

    Not that wasting Senate time matters much considering the House blockades everything anyway.

  13. mattbernius says:

    MTG has been announced as one of the two House Impeachment. Driving the clown car with her will be Clay Higgins.

  14. dazedandconfused says:


    MTG lecturing the Senate could be epic.
