The competition for the stupidest member of Congress is always tight, and @laurenboebert has made a bold move here, but @RepMTG is still kookier.

But fourth graders are on their own
The governor of Oklahoma, who just signed a bill banning abortion, period, is being primaried by another Republican who says life begins *before* conception. Yes, you read that right.

Hear me out on this. Another reason why we need the Equal Rights Amendment in our Constitution. Women are not treated equally, nor do they have to be. Justice Scalia and Justice Ginsberg both agreed the constitution doesn't protect us.

This viral tweet is filled with phony images of stuff Ted Cruz didn't actually tweet. The pictured Cruz tweet about the Uvalde shooting is real, but the rest of the images are fake. I added Xs over the phony ones.

I know many folks are wondering whether this is real. This is a serious allegation made anonymously and shouldn’t be treated as true unless vetted and verified.

I wonder why the word has taken on a pejorative connotation? It’s a mystery!
Use of the word “billionaire” as a pejorative is morally wrong & dumb 😛
