"Right from the start, it was zero threat... and they're hugging and kissing the police and the guards, you know? They had great relationships."
-Ex-President Donnie Coup-Coup on his attempted 1/6 coup
Every once in a while, some devious Republican somewhere will claim that not all Republicans are batshit crazy. All that proves is that they lie just as much as the rest of their brethren in the cult. They'll say whatever they want. It's that free speech thing, a right which they take as a license to yell "fire" in a theater and worse. At this point, some of the slightly saner ones expect some kind of credit just because they didn't curse through your mail slot or follow you down the street screaming at you at the top of their lungs.
Rest assured though, no three days will go by without another in a long, long line of Republican goons pushing himself or herself into the public consciousness by showing that they belong in an asylum. It's obvious that, to them, this is some sort of bizarro contest of who can prove they are the bigger lunatic. It seems that they're afraid of everything in the universe including not being publicly recognized for their personal brand of lunacy flavored with more than a dash of treason. And so it was that, last week, another one of crackpot House Minority Leader and treason puttpet Kevin McCarthy's prize proteges, Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia, just had to declare "Showtime!" and say the following during a House hearing about the party's attempted coup of 1/6:
But let me be clear, there was no insurrection and to call in an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie. Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures, you know. If you didn't know that TV footage was a video from January the sixth, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.
Right Andrew! And the Japanese never bombed Pearl Harbor! They were just tourists taking pictures! Yeesh! This is what happens when another Republican goofball named Ronnie Raygun closed up the asylums and threw the crazies into the streets. They met others like their own kind, married, had kids, joined what has now become the Domestic Terror Party, ran for public office and got elected by voters just like themselves.
Clyde wasn't the only one to display the rabid republican mouth-foaming insanity last week, not even the only one to do it at the same hearing, but I'll leave that for another day. Life's too short to write about all of them. There's definitely an encyclopedia's worth though. It's a never ending story and it's getting worse by the day. It's who they are. Next week, there will be more, many more. Under the direction of Trump, McCarthy, the RNC's Ronna Romney McDaniel, and Putin's $enate Minority Leader McConnell, they are running amok. There's no vaccination for this one, folks!
