If you got to choose any one Senator to remove from office, who would be your pick?

Ron Johnson or Pat Toomey to maximize chances of a Democrat replacing him.

Susan Collins because her replacement appointed would be a Democrat and also likely to hold the seat unlike a replacement for a Kansas or Louisiana Senator.

Collins, for BRTD’s reasons.

If that weren’t a factor, maybe Hawley.

Tuberville, obviously the least fit to serve.

Good point. But in that case, choose Johnson - WI and PA are both swing states, and while Toomey voted to convict Trump in 2021 for January 6, Johnson supported the Big Lie that led to January 6.

In retrospect, Johnson - he also supported the Big Lie and while TX and MO will likely elect GOP replacements for Hawley and Cruz, Johnson's seat could flip blue (especially given that I'm pretty sure a plurality of the voters of Wisconsin, the ones that supported Biden, didn't appreciate being told that the way they voted was fradulent).

I have to agree with Beesley and say Tuberville. He clearly doesn't know what he's doing.

Hirono, but there are a lot of properly abysmal ones, predominantly from the Democratic side.

Joe Manchin because his replacement would flip the Senate to GOP control.

That would be stupid since he's basically already the senator the GOP can convince to do things while other Democrats aren't open, and he's already DOA.

For me personally, there are a number of options.

For GOP, you can argue the majority could even be expelled for violating the rule of democracy, in regards to not condemning the Trump riots. I even don't know who I would expel, and i don't know if it would make sense since the replacement would possibly be as bad, possibly even much worse. The GOP senators that can be replaced, could easily be democratically removed from office if Democrats run a good campaign. I'd choose to expel Mitch McConnell since he's a big reason why the GOP is moving into the direction that we don't want it to move, and since he fails to condemns it.

For the Democrats, if i'd remove a Democrat it would be easier. Dianne Feinstein is the first senator I would replace, but I would bet that she would die or be removed from office soon regardless of expulsion, so i'd save it for Bob Menendez or Kyrsten Sinema. Since I doubt their replacements will be better and I had to expel a democrat, i would probably expel Kirsten Gillibrand, since she seems a grifter too (throwing Franken under the bus, being rightfully critical of Bill Clinton but failing to condemn Cuomo) and we can get EASILY someone better from New York, guaranteed to be a Democrat.

All fifty Republicans (and then I'd refuse to seat any appointed or elected replacements if they are Republicans). It's time we stopped dealing with them as legitimate political actors and treat them as enemy combatants instead.

Think you'd be better off kicking out Tester or Brown. Both of them vote like they are representing Oregon.
