I’ve seen enough Batman stuff to know these kinds of supervillain team-ups never last. Sooner or later the Penguin gets a little too greedy or Catwoman makes the Riddler jealous just before Joker stabs everyone else in the back.

It’s a demented statement soaked with fascism and political violence and show trials and torture. However, keep in mind that approx. 27% of the country hears it and cheer it on.

“It’s going to be the days of Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dr. [Paul] Gosar and myself doing everything to get the answers to these questions.”

What questions? Like, where were these folks on January 5? Giving tours to rebel troops? How come Louie Gohmert isn’t on your list, Matt?

This is a little off-topic, but what’s wrong with that guy’s head? At first I thought I was just seeing photos taken from too close to his forehead (making it look more like a five-head, at least), but I’m realizing now that he’s presenting what a clinical professional would call a “huge swollen noggin”.

Every one of them will be voting. The frightening part is that they may win.

Oh, there might be some subpoenas in 2022, alright, but not the kind he is thinking about…

They can’t even get to the “team up” part without tearing each other apart.

Let’s hope that infighting does fragment the crazies. Unfortunately the glue that holds them together is complete unconditional worship of their God Emperor Trump.

May his glue dissolve promptly.

Or just lock him up. I’ll take either one.

Why are they waiting to arrest and charge him? I thought he was super toasted when we heard about his crimes. He needs to be in jail (along with his co-conspirators).

I see now why Gaetz pays for sex, with children.

4 reasons. Rich, powerful, Republican and white.

For the underage woman thing? They probably don’t have enough to charge and convict him. News reports have said the woman isn’t cooperating, and his buddy rolling over on him to shorten his own sentence isn’t going to be enough. I’m deeply afraid he’s going to skate on that one.

Now, the 1/6 thing is another story, but he might skate there too. The Select Committee really seems to be mismanaging that pretty impressively.

The only thing left is being a moron, and that isn’t a crime. And his constituents don’t seem to have a problem with it.
