Marjorie Taylor Greene heading to Eastern Bloc territory for fundraiser with Mary Miller

Tuesday, Jun 22, 2021

* From US Rep. Mary Miller’s campaign website

Again, we’re not related.

…Adding… Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association Executive Director Dan Kovats…

Birds of a feather flock together. This absolutely tracks that Hitler quoting, conservative extremist who refused to honor the bravery of the Capitol Police during the Insurrection, Congresswoman Mary Miller would bring Marjorie Taylor Green to Illinois to raise money. Both Miller and Taylor Greene have lost touch with reality. Their brand of extremism and anti-democracy doesn’t represent Illinois or our country. If Miller had any integrity, she’d ask Taylor Greene to stay home.

    Misery loves company.


  2. - Chicago Cynic - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:40 am:

    Mary Miller bringing one of the few members of Congress who makes her look rational. Too bad Louie Gohmert wasn’t available.


  3. - Tweed - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:45 am:

    Rep Miller is really doubling down.


  4. - don the legend - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:46 am:

    Missing one sponsorship level:

    $10,000 Insurrectionist


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:46 am:

    I can see why Rodney Davis is afraid of Mary Miller.


  6. - illinoyed - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:52 am:

    Will they burn books at this event or a cross?


  7. - OurMagician - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:53 am:

    Correct spelling not necessary to attend.


  8. - NIU Grad - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:53 am:

    The future of the ILGOP here.


  9. - OurMagician - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:54 am:

    =Will they burn books at this event or a cross?=

    They’ll burn books at the cross.


  10. - Norseman - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:55 am:

    Many people hear this has been called, “A Night in Fantasy Land as Crazy Meets Looney.”


  11. - Blue Bayou - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 10:59 am:

    Motion to change “Effingham” to “Effingcrazy.”


  12. - BilboSwaggins - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:00 am:

    -Too bad Louie Gohmert wasn’t available.-

    He probably was, but I am pretty sure he doesn’t know where Illinois is, nor how to get here.


  13. - Flyin' Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:01 am:

    Any chance we can get Bailey to attend this Mensa gathering?

    Maybe give him the mike, you know, for fits and shins?


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:01 am:

    This upcoming event reminds me of that scene in “O Brother Where Art Thou”… that was a rally too as I recall.


  15. - Ok - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:02 am:

    Hmmm… Majority Taylor Greene is an anagram for One Larger Majority. Makes you think… just asking the question.


  16. - Joe Bidenopolous - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:07 am:

    =Hmmm… Majority Taylor Greene is an anagram for One Larger Majority. Makes you think… just asking the question.=

    God is an anagram of Dog. Makes you think… just asking the question


  17. - James the Intolerant - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:08 am:

    Shouldn’t Freedom be the highest priced sponsorship?


  18. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:10 am:

    And they say the left virtue signals and plays identity politics? It’s nothing compared with stoking the rural white GOP base for personal political gain.

    “Too bad Louie Gohmert wasn’t available.”

    Don’t laugh. With Trump’s household disinfectant injections and Gohmert’s knocking the earth a bit off its orbit, COVID and global warming could be eliminated. Nah just kidding, laugh away.


  19. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:17 am:

    When a performance artist like MTG comes to town, where should she hold her performance? At the Performing Arts Center, of course.

    I wonder if she could explain the difference between liberty and freedom (and no, it’s not $2,900).


  20. - Jocko - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:30 am:

    Maybe someone from the Illinois Holocaust Museum could visit and educate them both on Germany during 1934 to 1945.


  21. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:37 am:

    ==Motion to change “Effingham” to “Effingcrazy.”==

    I’ll second that motion.


  22. - Roadrager - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:51 am:

    Motion to discontinue use of “Eastern Bloc” in favor of “Kook County.”


  23. - Roadrager - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:52 am:

    Al, thanks for the nostalgia and letting everyone in the room know how seriously we should consider all of your posts going forward.


  24. - Demoralized - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:53 am:

    Al has apparently become our resident conspiracy theory kook.


  25. - Chicago Cynic - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:53 am:

    “This upcoming event reminds me of that scene in “O Brother Where Art Thou”… that was a rally too as I recall.”

    Everything but the little Wharvey gals. Oh, wait, you mean the OTHER scene…


  26. - Manchester - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 11:55 am:

    Can’t we just cede the Eastern Bloc to Indiana? No? Darn. You just know there will be a whole lot of crazy in the room when that event occurs.


  27. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 12:02 pm:

    Wait till MTG announces she has been endorsed by the Chair of Lincoln County.


  28. - vole - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 12:19 pm:

    beats ledgeslatin’ and constichuent serbuses


  29. - Lincoln Lad - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 12:22 pm:

    Is Matt Gaetz not available? Or has he fled the country and I missed it?


  30. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 12:41 pm:

    TimE tO TaKe YOuR MeDs Al.


  31. - Yiddishcowboy - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 12:41 pm:

    I think “Al” was being sarcastic. I hope….


  32. - Give Us Barabbas - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 1:21 pm:

    One panelist short of a Maury Povich or Jerry Springer episode. This is your GOP folks.


  33. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 1:23 pm:

    Easy to laugh about where this event is happening, but rent a conference center in Springfield, Rockford, or anywhere in the suburbs and the same crowds will come, only larger.


  34. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 1:37 pm:

    I’m not laughing at these dangerous insurrectionists…at all.


  35. - Glengarry - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 1:40 pm:

    The Eastern Bloc just keeps lowering the bar.


  36. - vole - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 2:40 pm:

    seems to be some uniting of individualist libertarians under the banner of the top unaccountable.


  37. - sal-says - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 3:26 pm:

    The ‘performing arts’ center. Apt.


  38. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 3:56 pm:

    Capacity just over 1,500 people, it would be good to see if someone checks the actual attendance, and is street wise enough to see whether there was a last minute give away to pack the house.


  39. - Not a Superstar - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 4:33 pm:

    The location is apt. Today’s GOP is no longer about politics, but performance art.


  40. - Mamajama - Tuesday, Jun 22, 21 @ 6:51 pm:

    Does 2900 have some significance for the seditionist crowd? It seems like a weird price point


  41. - Uncle A - Wednesday, Jun 23, 21 @ 8:29 am:

    One does not take the holocaust in vain, she learned that the hard way.


  42. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Jun 23, 21 @ 8:45 am:

    -Does 2900 have some significance for the seditionist crowd?-

    No. Those are FEC contribution limits.


  43. - 33rd ward - Wednesday, Jun 23, 21 @ 8:54 am:

    Why on earth would the Republican Party want MTG to be their spokesperson?


  44. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jun 23, 21 @ 8:58 am:

    === Why on earth would the Republican Party want MTG to be their spokesperson?===

    It’s who Mary Miller and the Eastern Bloc are.

    It’s why Republicans can’t shake the Rauner/Trump stigma is well.
