Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade (No longer a draft as of 06-24-2022.)

I think that’s a feature not a bug. The modern GOP is primarily about hatred and hurting “the other”. Those are their main policies.

It certainly seems that way.

In a functioning democracy (I know, pull the other one, it’s got bells on) pissing off too many of your voters is supposed to have consequences. I can hope that some chickens are coming home to roost.

One can dream.

My dream too. Maybe the leopards have eaten too many faces.

Is the Kansas vote an example of conspiracy theory nutjobs being in a position to reject the vote (state legislature, I guess?) and choosing not to do so?

Because my deepest worry isn’t that Democrats don’t vote, but rather that they’ll be tossed out.

Exactly. It could be short-sighted. It could also be, to paraphrase Game of Thrones, that they know what the democratic consequences of this lightning push are, and do not intend to suffer the consequences.

Oh I know they don’t intend to suffer the consequences. And they probably won’t damn it.
