Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day: John N. Kennedy- 2022 Update – Daily Kos

On this date in both 2020, as well as 2021, “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” first profiled the sitting U.S. Senator from Louisiana, John Kennedy, who was first elected to that office in 2016. Kennedy’s previous political experience was that, in the 1999 election, he was elected to be the Treasurer of Louisiana, and was, at the time, a Democrat. He spent sixteen years in that role, running an unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign in 2004 as a Democrat, and after he switched parties in 2007, ran another failed one in 2008 as a Republican. He finally won in an attempt to get to Washington, D.C. in 2016, where he slid into the seat left by Sen. David Vitter, who somehow remained in office as a U.S. Senator for Louisiana for a decade even after the public learned he allegedly solicited sex workers who would pander to his diaper fetish.
Somehow, we’re questioning which option for this seat was worse.
John Kennedy’s voting record in the Trump administration saw him vote for every member of the Trump Cabinet, all but three judges nominated by Trump, and of course voted against witnesses being allowed in the impeachment inquiry over Ukraine so that it was a “trial” in the Senate, that he then voted to acquit Trump in. In a way that is in no way good for the nation, Kennedy has become a favorite of the DC media for being willing to run onto cable news and embarrass himself and not realize it. Repeatedly, he has gone onto CNN, Fox News, or whatever network will host him to thrust his own foot not just into his mouth, but right down his throat without any thinking. Among his worst public partisan comments:
John N. Kennedy is up for re-election in 2022, and most recently threw a fit because Joe Biden called out white nationalist domestic terrorists in a prime-time speech. Sen. Kennedy’s review of that speech was that it was “a very cynical attempt to fill our heads with stupid”,  and pointed out that “The water’s not gonna clear up in Washington until we get the pigs out of the creek.”  
Just a reminder that this folksy dips*** is a Oxford graduate, and is doing a practical Larry the Cable Guy impression to fool rural voters in Louisiana. If anyone’s head already got filled with stupid, it’s this goofy wanker. It’s all an act, and sadly, one we fear will fool people who could instead choose any one of six challengers running against him.
