Congressional Republicans have savagely beclowned themselves throughout the Trump era. I thought the worst degradation would be their refusal to hold Trump accountable during the impeachment trials, but the lickspittles were far from done licking and spittling.
According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, at least 140 reality-challenged cowards are planning to back Donald Trump’s quixotic attempt to effectively end America—and yes, they’re all Republicans.
Two Republican members of the House of Representatives tell CNN that they expect at least 140 of their GOP colleagues in the House to vote against counting the electoral votes on January 6 when Congress is expected to certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory.
President Donald Trump's Republican allies have virtually zero chance of changing the result, only to delay by a few hours the inevitable affirmation of Biden as the Electoral College winner and the next president.
There have been no credible allegations of any issues with voting that would have impacted the election, as affirmed by dozens of judges, governors, election officials, the Electoral College, the Justice Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the US Supreme Court. But Trump is determined to claim he didn't lose — which he did, significantly — and many GOP politicians either share his delusion or fear provoking his wrath — even if that means voting to undermine democracy.
One-hundred-and-focking-forty. Jesus Sativa-Smokin’ Christ, what is wrong with these people?
Aside from a few barmy true believers, all these faithless fucknutz know Joe Biden won the election. Louie Gohmert, whose brain is a steaming colander of linguine in garlic-butter sauce on a good day, is one such character. I’d put Mo Brooks and Tommy Tuberville in that same bucket. But most of the rest of these clowns know better.
But they're shitting their pants over the tweety decrees of a reality show host, so they have to play along—or pretend to, anyway.
In the process, they’re greasing the skids for the next wannabe fascist dictator. So thanks for that, assholes. I thought we could leave a nice, shiny, intact democracy for the next generation, but now that’s all up in the air.
I’ll bet they think they’re like the 300 Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae, but they’re actually more like Steve Buscemi’s leg at the end of Fargo. They’ll be remembered, all right. But I doubt any of them will get the “happy” ending they’d hoped for.
