Anti-Trump Establishment Republican-Led Congress Now Seen as Epic Disaster with Popularity Approaching STD Levels

They can talk about Trump all that they want, however, no matter how  an  increasingly ultra-confused media tries to spin things, it’s America’s sand-bagging GOP-led Congress, rather than the President, which seems, at least to American voters, to be about as useful as chicken-poop on a pump handle– but at least chicken poop can boast a genuinely recognizable, if not dynamic,  identity.

Such is his energy, at this point,  we’re all expecting Mitch McConnell to come out, at any moment, and tell us:

“You kids are probably saying to yourself, “Now, I’m gonna go out, and I’m gonna get the world by the tail and wrap it around and put it in my pocket!” Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re probably gonna find out, as you go out there, that you’re not gonna amount to jack squat!”

“You’re gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese and living in a white van down by the river!” -(Matt Foley in SNL skit)

While the biased and almost completely co-opted progressive media is not doing much better, at least as highly ill-trusted unpopular institutions go, it’s still hard to imagine how a congressional body, as a whole, can be so hated by its very own voters, not to mention that of its opposition.

Republican Voters losing faith in Congress faster than in Trump

Looks like someone isn’t reading the tea leaves properly….

Meanwhile, their congressional opposition on the other side, the Dems, are too busy destroying US historical monuments while simultaneously chasing down Russia conspiracy theories, to take true advantage.

Between the Dems and The GOP, they’re like one big happy Manson family, and they just so happen to be one-third of our government.  

Can these people get any less dysfunctional?

The Establishment Republican-led Congress, as led by Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, John Cornyn, and John Thune, seem more like Democrat-Globalist Cuckolds than  Conservative leaders, and that’s probably because most of them lie within the pockets of America’s globalist Washington cartel on the one hand, and the semi-internationalist, open borders, anti-Trump  Koch Brothers, on the other.

Right now, for all intents and purposes, America’s operating under one dual-purpose political party, the RepubliDems, and that should scare the hell out of all us, except that these guys can’t even screw-up properly!

These guys can’t even lead from behind, indeed, when it comes to driving an agenda, the 115th congress makes the US Navy look like highly-skilled Formula One racers.

In fact, let’s look at a few stories that have recently appeared:

Yeesh: McConnell’s Approval In Kentucky Down To 18%

 “After all of the GOP’s legislative successes this year, this is the thanks he gets?

“The man’s as popular in his home state as gonorrhea — if you trust PPP’s polling to be accurate, that is. Remember, they also had Jeff Flake polling in VD range in his own home state of Arizona. It’s unusual for an incumbent from a state dominated by his party to tank quite that badly absent a major scandal. But then, it’s also unusual for a party to tank quite as badly as the GOP has this year.”

Then, there was this gem from the New York Times:

McConnell Whispers Trump’s Demise

The relationship between President Trump and Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, has disintegrated to the point that they have not spoken to each other in weeks, and Mr. McConnell has privately expressed uncertainty that Mr. Trump will be able to salvage his administration after a series of summer crises.

What was once an uneasy governing alliance has curdled into a feud of mutual resentment and sometimes outright hostility, complicated by the position of Mr. McConnell’s wife, Elaine L. Chao, in Mr. Trump’s cabinet, according to more than a dozen people briefed on their imperiled partnership. Angry phone calls and private bad-mouthing have devolved into open conflict, with the president threatening to oppose Republican senators who cross him, and Mr. McConnell mobilizing to their defense.”

Plus, it was only a day or two ago that McConnell promised “there’s zero chance’ Congress will fail to raise the debt ceiling,” to which we can only say rut-roh–because, this guy, Mitch “Full Repeal” McConnell, never met a promise he couldn’t break, and regularly.

I’d be embarrassed, were I him,  but apparently, lying in DC and then, somehow, managing to get re-elected, appears to be a major resume’ enhancement, at least inside the beltway. Oh, and why not add a little skullduggery in there to make it all complete.

Now we have the Vice President, Mike Pence, a Koch Brothers’ apparatchik, and a man who invariably looks as if he could break down and cry like a baby at any moment during underwhelming interviews, apparently has designs on a 2020 run against Trump, or who?

Yeah, the guy who was nowhere near the presidency in 2016, at least not until Trump came along, is suddenly eyeing his boss’s job….what the hell?

Dems prep for Pence, Kasich, Haley to run in 2020 

“But with Trump’s approval rating falling to dangerous lows and fellow GOP leaders publicly opposing him more frequently than ever before, operatives on both sides have pointed to other Republicans’ activities as evidence of their interest in running.

Pence has built up his political operation both inside and outside the White House, for example, and Kasich has refused to rule out the possibility of a run while loudly criticizing the president — though he has said he is not planning to take Trump on.”

In fact, we’ve been watching this particular story bouncing around the internet for the last couple of months, although many of us just can’t believe that a so-called “honorable man” could be so publically disloyal that he falls within the realm of the worst kind of traitor.

While many of us are still teetering on the edge of unbelief, it’s becoming obvious that something’s definitely up, with this particular story.


From Vanity Fair:

“Of those contenders, Pence is probably the most formidable, and the most likely to run. The vice president’s machinations have fueled speculation that he isn’t content with the No. 2 job in Washington and is maneuvering himself for something more. (What is the vice presidency, after all, except a stepping stone to the real thing?)

In an unprecedented move earlier this year, Pence launched his own political-action committee, while also building relationships with top Republican donors. Pence’s team has repeatedly rebuked reports about his potential ambitions, but Democrats aren’t taking any chances: the D.N.C. is already digging into Pence’s record in preparation, as is the Democratic opposition super PAC American Bridge 21st Century.”

Really? Hey, Pence, one thing you might want to chew on is the fact that if you cannot be loyal to the most powerful man in the world, that being your own boss and President of the United States, why should we believe that you can be loyal to the common man, out here in America?

If this really does happen, it’ll be fun turning Pence into finely ground sausage, throughout the campaign.

But, it has to be the trick of the year, watching the GOP Establishment political leadership, somehow, turning itself into sausage, and a very greasy sausage, at that…..with V.D.
