They all share the fatal flaw of having been nominated by a Democrat.

Congratulations Missouri. This nasty little piece has now edged ahead of Ted Cruz to be the most hated member of the Senate. You showed us.

Hawley needs to prove he is a bigger @$$hole than Ted Cruz. I guess he is betting that Trump by 2024 would not be able to hold his shit (literally) and the Grand Asshole Party will be looking for

Hawley’s opposition to Biden’s cabinet nominees have nothing to do with the serving his constituents in Missouri. This is all about drawing attention to himself -no matter how dumb it makes him look.

This guy is very, very dangerous. He has aspirations of being our own Mussolini. He is a model for Buzz Windrip in the novel “It Can’t Happen Here,” by Sinclair Lewis, still in print.

Hawley has already demonstrated that he is deeply opposed to the American democratic process of choosing our leaders, and the Constitution which established this process. His further opposition to any governance which follows the exercise of the will of the majority of citizens is in keeping with his hatred for our democratic republic and historical principles.

Has Hawley admitted that Joe Biden is the legitimately elected president of the US, and that claims of a stolen election are lies? If not, I have zero interest in anything else he has to say.

Hawley is a problem. The fact that the institutional Republican Party tolerates such seditionists in their midst is a bigger problem.
