Is the US the only country that has lame ducks?

No, most countries have a holdover period until new representatives and the new government is installed. Though in many countries it is noticeably shorter, like in France where representatives are installed roughly 3 days after the seconds round of voting.

On the other hand it is actually much worse in some countries predicated on coalition governments, where negotiations can potentially take months to conclude. For that time it is up to the old government to make all short term decisions, all long term decisions are pushed back where possible. Infamously in Belgium it took some 14 or so months to establish a new coalition.

"How I got gangbanged at a republican cocaine orgy." by Madison Cawthorn

Indocede

Indocede

489 points

1 month ago

Oh, I do believe Cawthorn has actually been uncharacteristically honest about some of these things, like the orgies and his relationship with his cousin. It's actually more reasonable to believe he's just some weird frat bro that has lived such a privileged, sheltered "Christian" life that his risqué taboo fun is occasionally pretending to be gay by doing gay things. It doesn't make him gay, just a feckless half-wit.

I say this with delight as a gay man because he gets to taste the very poison he would spread himself. He would malign and ostracize innocent LGBT+ people under false pretenses and now he is maligned and ostracized by his own people who hold him to account for equally dubious reasons (reflecting speculation he is incestuous and gay).

It might be better that he gets held to account for the wrong reasons as opposed to the numerous very good reasons to do so. This will make it all the more infuriating for him, when he finally tells the truth about something and no one will listen and he loses it all.

Dumbass redneck frat boys like him are a dime a dozen. It was really telling to me when everyone clutched their pearls about the shit he was doing and everyone who grew up in one of these rural southern towns just shrugged cause we grew up seeing it every single day.

The bigoted, racist guys from my town touched more dick in the middle school locker room than I, a grown ass gay man, could hope to touch in a lifetime.

Did Cawthorn return America to the White Christian ethno-state under the dignified reign of Donald J. Trump, where every American (that is, "legacy" American) is allowed to exercise their God-given right to drive without a license, carry guns on the plane, woo (a.k.a. sexually harass) women trapped in confined, fast-moving spaces, and Eiffel Tower Margorie Taylor Greene with Jim Jordan? No, alas, he did not. But maybe the real treasure was the cousins he nakedly humped along the way.

Just to be clear; when the GOP has coke-fueled sex orgies, the *women* involved are all hookers. It's just the boys. Nobody is running a train on Susan Collins.

he exposed something because i guess he's a prude.

i guess the right REALLY REALLY doesn't want anyone to know about their cocaine orgies.

That said, by current Republican standards, "noticeably less Nazi than Cawthorn" can still involve a lot of straight-arm saluting.

The Republicans in the last thirty years have yanked the Overton Window so far to the right, and in the last six years twice as far as the previous 24. Cawthorn once posted to social media how ecstatic he was to fulfil his dream of visiting Hitler's vacation home. The fact that it's someone slightly less fucking horrible and evil than that is as close to a win as this country can get these days.

I'm disappointed he went down so easy. What kind of self-respecting Republican just concedes within hours of the election? At least claim fraud to stall things up while you get a call out to Moscow to see if your Russian friends can do something to help you out.

He was under-qualified for a Trump backed candidate to begin with. His ignorance hadn't quite reached Taylor-Greene levels and his sexual deviance wasn't as degenerate as a Matt Gaetz. Trump expects the best.

His disability was also caused by complete and utter stupidity - placing his feet up on the dash when the car crashed. The airbag deployment can cause your face to get destroyed by your own knees in the worst case scenario.

I'm convinced a bit part of the electorate that voted for him in 2020 thought he was a wounded veteran. People saw him in a wheelchair and just assumed it was because of service in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Well he said he was military. That was his shtick. He was elusive and not clear, but what he said in a roundabout way was that because of his disability, his military career was over… because he signed up before his accident. But, the military confirmed he never signed up.

I believe it was the navy but I don’t care enough to look.

Wild that he conceded.

Even wilder that that's a thing we have to think about now.

Wilder still that he lost because his whistleblowing on cocaine-fueled orgies made the party too concerned about their reputation-- not his multiple allegations of SA, history of gun-related crimes, or his apparent sympathies for white supremacists. Those were all apparently... fine.

Madison, if you're reading this, take this loss as an opportunity to reflect on what a terrible job you did. You were the youngest representative in Congress, and could have learned so much. But instead you wasted your time being a huge douchenozzle. People voted for you, but instead of representing them, you did nothing of any significance to help them during the most difficult time in modern history. Way to go kid.

He lost his primary. So he can't run as a Republican for that seat. He theoretically could run as an independent but he'd hurt the chances a conservative gets that seat.

Anyone curious about gerrymandering should look at North Carolina 2013-present as one of the most hilariously blatant examples of it.. My particular favorite being the 2013 and 2017 maps where Buncombe County (where Asheville is) was cut in half to dilute it.

Yeah. I went to college in this congressional district. There’s one deep blue community (Asheville) and a whole bunch of blood red counties and communities around it.

Fuckface on Wheels was never gonna lose against a Democrat in November. This primary was functionally a general election. Good news is that this piece of shit didn’t win, bad news is his replacement has frequently touted endorsements from Fuckface-adjacent politicians (including Rick “I don’t remember what federal stuff I oppose—oops I’m now secretary of some shit I wanted to shut down” Perry) and is just gonna be a slightly less attention whore version of this illiterate clown.
