Now that Texas, Georgia, and Florida Republicans have left America by subverting the right of every American to vote, let us look at the rest of the southern Republicans, 66% of which favor secession.

So I may be burying the lede on this one—on purpose for once. The buried bit involves a bit of classic Trumpian projection that, sadly and predictably, ventures into the offensive. (Skip ahead if you want to see it. I’ll never know.) But first, let’s take a look at the most...

Much like with the election of Barack Obama, after the Derek Chauvin conviction, America was quick to congratulate itself.
