These responses to McConnell stepping down are all kinds of fun

If you haven't heard, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he would step down from his leadership position in November. McConnell made the announcement during a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday, and before you could sing "Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead," the reactions began pouring in. Legal expert Elie Mystal wrote these kind words about the GOP leader: "Mitch McConnell has been the most successful Confederate since John C. Calhoun. Congratulations to him and his people in their service of evil." Sort of brings a tear to your eyes.

A new book on America's first ladies has some delicious dish on Melania Trump's time in the public eye, where she squatted like a painful stye for four forgettable years. "American Woman: The Transformation of the Modern First Lady, from Hillary Clinton to Jill Biden" by New York Times reporter Katie Rogers includes a chapter on Trump's time in the White House " and avoiding the White House " and turning the White House into a garish nightmare factory that imagined Santa Claus as the phlegmatic frontman for an '80s German techno-pop group.

The next goal of the forced birth lobby: Attacking prenatal screening for fetal abnormalities

Most Americans have not yet internalized the lengths to which the forced birth lobby is prepared to go to ensure that women and others who become pregnant are prohibited from ending their pregnancies. In order to appreciate the dystopian vision that these people clearly have every intention of imposing, it's necessary first to understand that for them, the overturning of Roe was simply the first step. Now that a right-wing majority on the Supreme Court has signaled its willingness to sign on to that vision""one that contemplates the absolute control of women's and others reproductive autonomy""the vast and well-funded forced-birth lobby is preparing to move to the next phase.

The Freedom Caucus wants to take over elections in Arizona's biggest county

Far-right state Rep. Justin Heap announced Wednesday that he was launching a challenge against Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer, a fellow Republican who has infuriated election conspiracy theorists during his tenure as election administrator for Arizona's largest county. Heap entered the July 30 primary with the support of state Sen. Jake Hoffman, a fraudulent elector for Donald Trump in 2020 who, along with Heap, unsuccessfully tried to pass a bill last year to gerrymander Maricopa into four separate counties to ensure Republicans would remain in control of three of them.

Sean Hannity: Only Republicans are allowed to visit the border

On Tuesday night, Sean Hannity used his Fox News platform to spew the normal MAGA election talking points: The world is coming to an end and only a rich, fraudster scumbag can save it. When Donald Trump demanded the Republican Party blow up the bipartisan border security deal earlier this month in order to be able to run on there being no border security deal, he left the job of squaring that circle to sycophants like Hannity.

The justices' order maintains a hold on preparations for a trial focused on Trump's efforts to overturn his election loss.

Republicans will do anything to protect IVF, except vote for it

Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois asked Wednesday for unanimous consent to pass her bill granting federal protections to IVF and other advanced fertility treatments, to prevent more states from doing what the Alabama Supreme Court did to shut the practice down. All Republicans had to do was to not object to that. They wouldn't have even had to take a roll call vote on it. But as soon as Duckworth asked her Senate colleagues across the aisle to put their money where their mouth is, Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi objected, proving that all of the recent insistence from Republicans about wanting to protect IVF is nothing more than lip service.
