Not Tired of Winning Yet LXIII

Too much winning. I laughed so hard the neighbors might call the police. I shall surely be ill from too much joyful noise.

From the New York Post:

The Green New Deal failed to pass a procedural vote in the Senate Tuesday, with Democrats slamming the GOP motion as a “sham” and with two exceptions voting “present” in protest.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put the ambitious plan to create jobs and improve the environment to a vote to force Democrats to take a public stand on the measure and try to divide the party’s moderates and progressives.

The final vote was 57 against and no one for the plan, with 43 Democrats voting present.

From Fox News:

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, called the Green New Deal “ridiculous” and displayed pictures of dinosaurs, cartoon characters and babies on the Senate floor. He said he was treating the plan “with the seriousness it deserves.”

Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — all candidates for the Democratic nomination who have endorsed the Green New Deal — voted “present” Tuesday

Here we see, from Mike Lee’s presentation, Epic President Reagan riding a dinosaur, saying that this picture had as much historical accuracy about the battle to overcome the Soviet Union as the Green New Deal has for the question of the environment.

Mike Lee suggested that instead of flying jets or using across the vast expanses of Alaska during the winter, that the Alaskans use the Tauntauns of the Ice Planet of Hoth. Again, this is about as realistic as the Green New Deal.

He also displayed some of the deleterious effects of Climate Change on his home state of Utah by showing photos from that most serious documentary, SHARKNADO IV.

But Senator Lee’s presentation was not what made me laugh. This made me laugh:

Zero votes in favor.

Zero. The same number of indictments handed out by the Mueller probe.

None of the Dem Senators, no matter what talk they talked, actually had the backbone to stick with their party, and vote aye; and only three had the backbone to stick with their principles, and vote nay.

For the record, the nay votes from Non-GOPs were Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, Doug Jones of Alabama, and independent Angus King of Maine.

(For the record, that is ‘Angus King’ of Maine, and not ‘Angus’ King of Maine… albeit that would be a supremely awesome name for a monarch of 22nd Century Maine who will arise after Climate Stasus causes Sharknadoes to rip through the continent, toppling civilization back to the Dark Ages, and our beloved Republic gives way to a revival of the feudal system.)

The Fake News is already attempting to spin this humiliation of these yellow and spineless jellyfish, by claiming that voting “present” was a protest vote against the “sham” of actually taking the nauseating lunacy of Red Cortez seriously and seeing who actually would go on the record to support it.

The Dems all with a single voice and single furrowed brow claim that Climate Fraud is a serious, serious, very serious problem of much serious seriousness. 190% of all science people throughout all timespace an in all parallel universes agree that the Earth was destroyed in 2012, unless we do something about this right NOW, by giving them more power to molest women, dress up as KKK members in blackface, and harvest the organs of more unborn babies for pay.

Dems, take note. Three of your creatures are not crazy, and there may be hope for your sick and disgusting party yet. Clean yourselves up, return to the universe, climb out of the sewer pits of graft and the cathouses of vice, get sober, go to confession, and maybe you can be a proper check against the selfsame Plutocrats and Islamo-fascist Oil Barons your party now lauds and worships.
