The Evidence of Your Lying Eyes

 

I don't know when a regular tour group fights for hours with the police, leaving over a hundred cops injured, carries nooses and bear spray, smashes glass and spreads feces around, but apparently, this clyde thinks that's normal. Fine. Hardly an insurrection at all.

In other words, who are you going to believe, him or your lying eyes? 

Rep. Paul Gosar wants you to think about poor little Ashli Babbitt as a victim instead of a perpetrator. I don't know why he chooses to infantilize an experienced US veteran, but she was at the head of a pack of folks who were looking to punish former VP Pence and other officials for what they considered treason. The punishment for treason is death, and they looked for all the world like they had murder on their minds. 

Rep. Kevin McCarthy also wants to rewrite history a little. He claimed yesterday that "no one is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election." Well of course they still are. The lie is still going strong from Mar-a-Lago to Maricopa County to Antrim. Why did they bother removing Liz Cheney from her leadership? Why did state GOP parties censure Republicans who dared to vote for Trump's impeachment?

Because the lie is the predicate for future GOP fuckery. And McCarthy can't have it both ways--he should know that. We can see right through him because he hasn't the substance to hide his ambition (he really wants to be Speaker of the House) or the lack of principle that would cause him to adopt any means of achieving it.

Trump lost because he was proven unfit. But he was not the only unfit person in that party by a long shot.

Ah. In the event of civil war, business will be, as they say, booming.
