Television Sen. Josh Hawley tells #AxiosOnHBO that he’ll make masculinity a signature political issue, because he claims “the left” is telling men: “You’re part of the problem…Your masculinity is inherently problematic.”

Ted Cruz @tedcruz
Satire is dead. I’m pretty sure this is verbatim MSNBC:
“The real reason we didn’t win…is bc we weren’t calling people racist hard enough,” said Joy Ann Reid. “I really think…we didn’t try hard enough to look like insane deranged lunatics. We…need to lean into that more.”

Some of the responses:
Since Texas as done zip to shore up its cold-and-hot intolerant electrical grid, are you planning another escape this winter? [….]
Wow, all this and a cage match with Big Bird too
The senator delivers!
Kinda like how democracy is dead?
Ted don’t you have an actual job to do?
Big Bird Ted [….]
Meanwhile, you are arguing with an 8 ft bird….
Have you ever considered trying to legislate more and Tweet less…?
No, we’re good.
I heard your dad was implicated in the assassination of satire….
We see what you did there.
Big Bird owns you. Nothing else matters.
You realize that your link is to a satire site, right?
The Babylon Bee isn’t real news.
If Satire is dead you used a zodiac sign to kill it.
We see what you did there.
Pretty sure it died around the same time a US Senator picked a fight with a bird puppet.
A Fictional bird kicked your ass today.
You need a dictionary Teddy.
You got owned by a puppet fool
Ted Cruz, the super genius quoting a satire article says satire is dead. What a fucking idiot.
Interestingly, Josh Hawley (r) has ben quiet today. Heh.
Leadership from a former Congressman and unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. Senate in Texas:

Meanwhile, this morning:
Manu Raju @mkraju
Cruz’s office has not responded to photos on social media showing him traveling to Cancun. They haven’t confirmed or denied anything yet, not responding since last night. Comes as residents in Texas are left without running water or power amid the winter storm. 7:57 AM · Feb 18, 2021
Amy Klobuchar @amyklobuchar
A group of my Republican colleagues claiming that they want an additional federal “commission” to supersede election results when votes have already been counted, recounted, litigated, & state-certified, amounts to nothing more than an attempt to subvert the will of the voters. 1:43 AM · Jan 3, 2021

Missouri Revised Statutes
Election Authorities and Conduct of Elections
115.508. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, no election authority or verification board shall certify election results, as required under section 115.507, before noon on the Friday after election day.
Political amateurs have no understanding of the concept of election certification. Political professionals and media long ago sacrificed that concept on the altar of instant results.
Or it could be short attention spans. Look over there! Squirrel!
