Holy shit: Mitch McConnell: "African-American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as American voters." Toni Morrison: "In this country, American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate."

Iowa state legislator trying to give Missouri state legislators a run for their money when it comes to chauvinism.
During a meeting of the House Administration and Regulation budget subcommittee, Representative Gustafson just asked why the Dept. of Human Rights didn’t have a “department to protect the status of men.” Not kidding.

NICE point by @SenAmyKlobuchar: EVERY voter suppression bill that has passed at the state level has passed **with a simple majority** in that state legislature. 👉Simple majority to suppress the vote. 👉Super majority to protect the vote.
“What brought us to the point today?” “We're here because, after a record number of voters voted to make their voices heard, there are people sadly working in every state Capitol to make sure it never happens again.” @SenAmyKlobuchar

Iowa should be expanding EV infrastructure. I have a 2018 Nissan Leaf. I get to ignore the price of gasoline, with or without ethanol. Better for meeting our Paris Agreement commitments, too.

When I went to college in Mount Vernon, at least once a year the windchill hit -100°. Ice would form on the inside of my dormitory window. Single pane windows back then.

“Republicans block action on voting rights” is pretty much the GOP platform.

Haunting.
America — which prides itself on its ostensible religious freedoms, ball and chained this Lakota wicasa wakan (holy man) in 1880 — for practicing his spirituality.

If DOJ fails to criminally indict Trump, Trump won’t need Mike Pence in 2024. He’ll use DOJ as his shadow running mate, claiming that DOJ’s decision not to charge him is definitive proof that he committed no crime. It will be like DOJ co-signed everything Trump has done.

Freshman Representative gets one helluva ratio, bragging about “securing“ monies from a bill for which she did not vote.
BREAKING: We secured $829 million in federal funding to upgrade locks & dams along the Upper Mississippi River. This is game-changing for Iowa’s agriculture industry & our Mississippi River communities! hinson.house.gov/media/press…

Today Joe Biden gave a press conference, it was both too long and too short. It was too soon since his last one but also too far away. Biden's answers were simultaneously too glib but also too detailed. He spoke too much about policy but also too much about politics. - the MSM

Isn’t it considered a plum assignment, to be part of the White House Press Corps? So how come so many members of that group ask questions as if they worked for the National Enquirer? Don’t these outlets have any self-respect left?

I was born in St. Joe. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Missouri in the news about something that was not simply embarrassing. They just keep electing these knuckle dragging bigots without a lick of sense but with big mouths.

Booker: Don’t lecture me about Jim Crow. I know this is not 1965. That’s what makes me so outraged. It’s 2022 and they’re blatantly removing more polling places from the counties where Black and Latinos are overrepresented

Florida parents: please do this.
To test how race-neutral the DeSantis bill and others like it are, Black, Latino and Indigenous parents should flood these states with lawsuits about lessons that make their children feel discomfort, or that one race is superior to another and see how it goes.
