Y’all Should Be Ashamed of Yourselves

April 06, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Poor Devin Nunes.  Look what you’ve done to him.  He’s had to step aside “temporarily” as chair of the House Intelligence Committee.

“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics,” Nunes said in the statement. “The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”

And you’re gonna pay dearly for being mean to Nunes.

West Texas Obama-hating congressman Mike Conaway is taking over as chair.  He’s ethically challenged.  And in the Koch brothers herd.

And Conaway will be assisted by the lovely and charming Trey Gowdy.  Y’all, Gowdy sets off every fight or flight bone in my body.

I am willing to bet that this ends up with Gowdy and Conway banging each other over the head with gavels.

    “I am willing to bet that this ends up with Gowdy and Conway banging each other over the head with gavels.”

    And, if one of them knocks the other one senseless, however will we determine that given the starting point with those two?

    The sentence: “I am willing to bet that this ends up with Gowdy and Conway banging each other over the head with gavels.” ended much better than the brief, fleeting thought that passed thru my brain halfway thru that sentence.

  3. e platypus onion says:

    Nunes brought this upon himself committing possible infractions trying to prove a possible infraction. Being a wingnut he is too stoopid to understand what they do is not a secret and if he gets involved it will be recorded for posterity.

    Oh noes! Nunes got me!

    Yeah, I’m a big, mean ol’ Left Wing Activist cuz I subscribe to the notion that, when you’re investigating a person or entity, you don’t coordinate your investigation WITH that person or entity.

    Well no, I guess that doesn’t make me left wing. I think it makes me human. Well, THESE DAYS, I guess it DOES make me left wing, come to think of it — seeing as how conservatives seem to have parked any morals they once had at the far end of the parking lot — and forgot where they left them.

  5. George in Lee County says:

    Or maybe just banging each other?

  6. I read out here in cyber space that MoveOn.org was one the “left wing activists” that filed against Nunes. I think I’ll send them a few $$…

  7. That Other Jean says:

    Everything two crows said.

  8. Surely Gowdy will throw all the same zeal into investigating the Russia connections as he did on Hillary’s emails, right? That is what that committee is working on, right? Surely no repugnantcan would hijack a proceeding for a different purpose. Why do I see a picture of Kenny Star in my head?

  9. Well that settles it! My little bride tole me we were ahead a few bucks in March, and asked what did I think should we do with found money. Well clearly we’re gonna give it in equal amounts to the “Several left wing activist groups” who “filed accusations against” ole Divan with the Office of Congressional Ethics.

    Just because you file a complaint doesn’t make you a left-wing anything, it’s worse than that.

    It means you’re paying attention and are not willing to let typical republican’t corruption and perfidity go unchallenged.

  11. Annabelle Lee says:

    Gowdy has already said that Adam Schiff should also recuse himself because…. he supported Hilary Clinton for President.

    Lord help him, I think his Clinton Derangement Syndrome is spreading.

  12. gabberflasted says:

    I suppose GOWDY DOODY will again cooing and billing to Comey’ that he too, Doody, is an ATTORNEY!! It would be nice if he had something atop that pencil neck than more neck.

    When we were protesting the Vietnam war, I heard from Republicans (and, sadly, a few Democrats) that we were “getting our marching orders directly from Moscow.” They weren’t kidding; they believed it.

    Now that the obsolete Electoral College (which should have done its job and not selected a compromised, pussy-grabbing madman) has installed Putin’s Puto in the White House — OUR White House — where’s all the fuss? I’m waiting ….

  14. IOIYAR.
    EAIYAD. (Anything’s bad if you are Democratic.)

  15. With many GOPers, including the one in the WH, it’s always someone else’s fault when they are caught doing something wrong. They need to explain why they keep billing themselves as ‘The Party of Personal Responsibility’ when they aren’t. ‘Left-wing activists’ didn’t force Nunes to meet others at the WH in the dead of night to receive and examine classified information, and they didn’t decide to hold two press conferences on the same day to share that information. He did that. Maybe Trump or Spicer will come to his defense, but if I were Nunes, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for them to do it.

  16. Opinionated Hussy says:

    I have never been prouder of being a left-wing activist!!

  17. JJ, how the hell did you know that these two guys are super-hyper-competitive, especially Gowdy! He personally and physically “escorted” Darrell Issa out of a private committee business meeting that Issa invaded. Gowdy is very proprietary about “his” committee. And he hates drop-ins! Issa was pissed, poor boy! Issa was also simultaneously guilty of breaking one of the security rules placed on all the public buildings on the Hill. He was drinking a can of soda as he whisked down the hall to the committee room and entered still drinking. Eating and drinking in the celestial hallways of a Congressional building is a helluva no-no. Why, blimey! A soda can is the perfect disguise for a bomb, doncha know?

  18. “I am willing to bet that this ends up with Gowdy and Conway banging each other over the head with gavels.”

    I don’t know about Conway, but Gowdy’s cone head is so pointy it could stand a few knocks of a gavel.

  19. Lunargent says:

    I’ve gotten so paranoid, I’m now thinking this might be a setup.

    Nunes has a reputation for competence. Which meant that the Committee would be expected to produce some results. And seeing where that was going, Devin obligingly created a LooneyTunes scenario, which forced his recusal. Leaving the Committee in the hands of the Nutjobs, who will produce precisely nothing, except a probable attempt to smear Susan Rice.

    No crazier than any of the other explanations we’ve gotten, unfortunately.
