Cowards

Burned out at the end of the Joy-Ann Reid hour on MSNBC, I am ready for mindless tv. By that time, my intellectual palette is dulled by the talk of the continuous meal foisted on me of tasteless conservative ambrosia. A nice, seared steak of the NBA playoffs or a good...

Americans should listen to the rational Republicans willing to publicly lift the scales from their eyes, who say their brethren are cowardly.

I expect Donald Trump to publicly announce his goal to run for the Presidency in 2024. Will Ted Cruz’s head explode? I bet those Republicans that refused to convict in his impeachment for sedition might soon be regretting their decision. Hiya cowards. I hope QPAC [CPAC] reaches levels of rabid...

Forty-four of the sitting fifty Republicans in the Senate put on their tinfoil hats, held up Q’s, ignored the Constitution, and voted against having a trial for the twice impeached former president. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), who previously voted against having a Senate trial, was so unimpressed with Mr. Trump’s...

Good God, man. This is what you guys are going with? Really? Everyone deserves a mulligan? First of all, this is Trump’s second impeachment, so he’s already received one mulligan courtesy of the Cowards of the Congress.

Congressional Republicans have savagely beclowned themselves throughout the Trump era.

The Kraken Caucus makes itself known. GOP sedition messaging harkens back to the 19th Century, except Trump's lost cause won't rise again.
