It's all becoming normalized, scary shit. And the GOP turns a blind eye and pretend it's all normal. I disagree a bit about being desensitized -- I think half of us have become more and more disgusted by this administration's actions as they've gone on, but also more frustrated by the inability to make it better immediately. As for the other half, the GOP is so overly pleased about having their people in power that they happily excuse, if not promote, their president's ability (so far) to skirt the rules. I don't think they necessarily believe it's the new normal, but are just riding that wave and hoping it lasts forever. However, I believe those days are finally starting to come to an end, and many rats will begin jumping from that treasonous sinking ship. As for rats like Giuliani, Graham, McConnell, etc., I hope they go all the way down with it.Of course, I'm just talking about people who are paying attention to current events -- as I think you suggest, the general citizenry mostly doesn't give a fuck.

Quote from: walterfredo on Mar 17, 2020, 02:15 pmDevin Nunes is my (pathetic and embarrassing) representative in Congress. Additionally, my office is directly next to his local field office. He's rarely there, but I see him a few times a year. For years I've wanted to give him an earful, especially the last 3 years. After the crap he said on Sunday morning (basically encouraging people to go dine out with their families)I was pretty upset. Embarrassed. So yesterday I run into him in the hallway and finally had the balls to speak out to him. Again, he's in the office next me, I rarely see him but I interact with his staffers daily. They're all super nice. Here's how our conversation went down...So this just happened in my office hallway (Devin Nunes office is across the hall from me, he's rarely here but is today. I see him a few times a year)Me: "so you really think now is a good time to be going to bars and restaurants"Devin: "I didn't say that, I never said that" Me: "yes you did. I heard it with my own ears"Devin: "I never said bars, don't be misquoting me"Devin: "so you think it's ok for people to be cramming into Costco and waiting for hours in line?"Me: "not at all"Me: "don't you think we should be listening to the experts on this?"Devin: "like who, the governor? I bet you believe him right? He's the expert right. I bet you listen to our governor"Me: "no. He's a politician. Don't you think we should be listening to the doctors and medical professionals? Who are saying the exact opposite of what you said yesterday" Devin: "I said that people should still be supporting restaurants. Take out"Me: "that's not what you said"Devin, pointing his finger at me aggressively: "you sound like a real freak"...then he walked into the stairwell and left. I shared the above conversation with numerous friends immediately after it went down. NOW! Fast forward about 4 hour later, and he's on Hannity last night.
