Republican are furiously bunching their panties and stuffing them up their own cracks—because of course they are. She used a swear! Swears are not okay! Unless, of course, it's a swear coming out of Donald Trump's mouth, like "shithole countries" or "grab 'em by the pussy." Some of us are old enough to remember when Vice President Dick Cheney told a Democratic Senator to "go fuck yourself" on the senate floor and then bragged about it. When Republicans do it, it's a mark of authenticity, they're just telling it like it is. When a Democrat does it—particularly a lady Democrat—it's an outrage and it "should not stand."

Rep. Tlaib, to her credit, isn't cowed:

ITMFA, of course, stands for "Impeach the Motherfucker Already!" So far we've raised more than $250,000 for the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood and the International Refugee Assistance Project selling ITMFA hats, t-shirts, mugs, buttons, and lapel pins.

Like I said, I don't know if Rep. Tlaib is familiar with my ITMFA campaign. But she'll be familiar with it soon: I'm sending her a thank-you note along with an ITMFA t-shirt, hat, mug, and American flag ITMFA lapel pin—a lapel pin that's tasteful and subtle enough to wear on cable news programs, Rep. Tlaib!
