My gut tells me that North Carolina Representative Madison Cawthorn is probably telling the truth when it comes to “drug fueled orgies” within Republican ranks.
Given how shameless elected Republicans are, and how they seem to wallow in hypocrisy at every turn, it definitely seems like their “thing” to do coke and have orgies.
But because it’s just Cawthorn talking about it, this is probably going to be just another thing that Republicans get away with. It’s very frustrating, but that’s the modern political world we live in now.
Republicans destroy everything and get away with it, while Democrats sneeze wrong and it’s the end of the world. This is an example of how I can never fully agree with people like Joe Rogan. I can agree in general with him on specific issues like how the “woke agenda” makes people have some very dumb hot takes on The Slap, but I fucking hate the MAGA New Right with such a white hot passion that, lulz, so what.
This is also an example of how there are macro forces at work in American politics right now. We’re lurching towards the existential choice of autocracy or civil war in the general 2024 – 2025 timeframe and there just isn’t anything we can do about it. At best, we can punt the problem down the road, but I doubt that is going to happen.
We’re fucked — key bump optional.
