...that the zombie herd is doing zombie shit.
For anyone who feels the need to express shock that McConnell is doing what every fucking Republican has been doing since Reagan, please spare me. Republican strategy has alway been to send the snowball rolling down the hill and then appear on camera to feign sadness (and usually to blame Democrats for not cutting taxes more or whtever) once the avalanche they set in motion wipes out a village.

And of course Republican would have been be completely fucked long ago were it not for those helpful lords and ladies on the Beltway media who are always on-hand to make sure that the blame for wiping out the village is equally distributed between Republican destroyers-of-the-village and Democratic protectors-of-the-village. Like this randomly-chosen example from a couple of years ago of Jake Tapper whinging on and on about the Sanctity of Bipartisanship or the Failure of Democrats to Whatever (from Crooks & Liars) --
JAKE TAPPER: And ultimately, if only Democrats vote to impeach the president... president Trump, and Republicans, and maybe a couple of Democrats do not vote to impeach him, vote against that, doesn't that suggest that this is a partisan impeachment? Wouldn't that hurt the credibility of the impeachment that only Democrats vote to support it?-- which some disreputable Liberal took the trouble to fiddle with by swapping out phrases like "Trump" or "Republican" or "Trump Supporter" and swapping in swap in some variation of the term "brain-eating zombie":
JAKE TAPPER: And ultimately, if only Democrats vote to impeach the King of the Brain-Eating Zombies ... and Congressional brain-eating zombies, and maybe a couple of Democrats do not vote to impeach him, vote against that, doesn't that suggest that this is a partisan impeachment? Wouldn't that hurt the credibility of the impeachment of the King of the Brain-Eating Zombies that no brain-eating zombies vote to support it?Because this is what the mainstream media has looked like to us dirty hippies for decades.
