. . . Yet it certainly makes you think about the sick minds who pushed him into this, and the sick minds on social media and in the MSM who promote him as "totally normal" . . .
Are the people who actually voted for him anything less than sick?

A sad truth in that election. "Endorsed by Trump".

Sadly true. Philly in particular has displaced Chicago as the nation's capitol of election fraud. Remember in the Obama vs Romney election, there were 59 precincts in the Philadelphia area carried by Obama - that was expected, but a margin of 19,305 votes for Obama compared to 0 - that's ZERO - for Romney was not. Nobody voted for Romney, even by mistake. Ferdinand Marcos and Kim Jong Un would be proud.

Fetterman Filibusters Senate For Seven Hours While Attempting To Say 'Hello'
https://babylonbee.com/news/fetterman-filibusters-senate-for-seven-hours-while-attempting-to-say-hello



Quote
Though Fetterman's unplanned filibuster lasted for over seven hours, Republican members of the Senate privately expressed relief. "Him coming back to work turned out to be a blessing in disguise," one GOP senator said under the condition of anonymity. "The more we can keep him talking, the easier it will be to roadblock the Democrats' agenda. I'm ready to help put him in charge of more committees if it keeps going like this!"

This is untrue.

There are 66 wards in Philadelphia, and none of them had zero votes for Romney in 2012.  There were individual divisions in those wards that had zero Romney votes, but no whole wards.  You can download the excel results and look for yourself here: https://vote.phila.gov/resources-data/past-election-results/

Most of these division had a couple hundred votes total.  So three or four hundred folks all voted for Obama, and non for Romney not 19,000.

So you're saying this source lied:

https://www.inquirer.com/philly/news/politics/20121112_In_59_Philadelphia_voting_wards__Mitt_Romney_got_zero_votes.html

CBS' take on this also mentions that in 2008, 57 "divisions" reported zero votes for McCain.

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/romney-earned-zero-votes-in-some-urban-precincts/

Over in Ohio, Romney got zero votes in a number of precincts.

Nothing to see here, move along.

No.  I said the statement: ", there were 59 precincts in the Philadelphia area carried by Obama - that was expected, but a margin of 19,305 votes for Obama compared to 0 - that's ZERO - for Romney" was untrue, and provided receipts.

It's not my fault the sources got it wrong.  Apparently the MSM wasn't very accurate back in 2012 either.

One of the comments really hit it on the head for me. This at one time would indeed be a skit on a comedy show with the audience laughing as Fetterman enters the scene.

Is there some reason why Fetterman was in shorts and a hoodie while all the other men were wearing suits?  Did he just wake up from his nap or something?

Fetterman's office has begun editing his quotes to make them clear, most recently in his questioning of the former CEO of Silicon Valley Bank.

What was released by Fetterman's office:
Quote
“Shouldn’t you have a working requirement after we bail out your bank? Republicans seem to be more preoccupied with SNAP requirements for hungry people than protecting taxpayers that have to bail out these banks.”

What he actually said:
Quote
“The Republicans want to give a work requirement for SNAP. You know, for a uh, uh, uh, a hungry family has to have these, this kind of penalties, or these some kinds of word — working uh, require — Shouldn’t you have a working requirement, after we sail your bank, billions of your bank? Because you seem we were preoccupied, uh when, then SNAP requirements for works, for hungry people, but not about protecting the tax, the tax papers, you know, that will bail them out of whatever does about a bank to crash it.”

I don't think the banker answered since neither he nor anyone else could extract meaning from that word salad.

I don't think any banks or businesses of any sort should ever be bailed out.

I think all welfare programs should be 100% legislated, funded and controlled the particular state that they serve.

What does that make me?

That would be my reaction if I was a Dem in congress.  Mocking laughter that the R's are doing a dog and pony show for their base.  What are they going to do, actually remove him from politics?  "Random Democrat" polls higher than Biden.  The RNC getting rid of their albatross-around-the-neck candidate is a gift.

Schumer nixed the dress code for senators. Staff still need to follow it. I want all the Rs to show up in board shorts, t-shirts, and flip flops next week.

^^^^

Of all the thing the Senate could be working on, or we could be holding the Senate accountable for, the dress code is like 986 on the list.
