Republican Behavior: Worse Than Treason

"Perhaps the sedition caucus didn’t mean to go this far. Its members began by arguing that we all just needed to humor President Trump, to give him time to process the loss, and to treat the president of the United States as a toddler who was going home empty-handed. He wouldn’t be a dead-ender, they assured us, because that would be too humiliating. The Republican Party would never immolate itself for a proven loser.

"But for Trump, there is no such thing as too much humiliation. The only shame in Trump world lies in admitting defeat. And so Trump doubled down, as anyone who had watched him for more than 10 minutes knew he would. And then he tripled, quadrupled, quintupled down. And just as they have done for the past four years, elected Republicans tried to convince themselves that if they supported this outrage, it would be the last time they would be required to surrender their dignity; that this betrayal of the Constitution would be the last treachery demanded of them. That if they complied one more time, they would be allowed to go back to their privileged lives far from the districts they claim to represent—places few of them really want to live after tasting life in the Emerald City.

"It is possible that the sedition caucus knew that all these challenges would fail. It is possible that they know their last insult to American democracy, on Wednesday, will go nowhere, as well. This is irrelevant: Engaging in sedition for insincere reasons does not make it less hideous. Arguing that you betrayed the Constitution only as theater is no defense."


I read part of the transcript of Trump's call and it's surreal, it really is like something from Idiocracy. He's a blustering, brain damaged fool who can't keep a single idea straight in his head for three seconds at a time.

How do you like it? Like the Democrats tried to overturn the 16 election. For the next 4 years we are the resistance and your going to get a little bit of your own medicine. It's going to be so much fun

Republicans initiated the Mueller investigation, so if anyone tried to overturn the election, it was them.
I have not heard that talking point before. Your record is broken. Could not have been because of the incessant left wing loons whining could it?

No Dem called the Sec of State of a state the Dems lost and tried to get the SoS to change vote totals that were already certified and after the electors met. There is no precedent, by a long shot, for the anti-democracy actions and language of Trump.

You are welcome to fight against the Dems (peacefully). That's what democracy is about. Democracy is NOT about what Trump did on that phone call.

Is rioting and looting considered peaceful still? Is impeach ingredients a president for exercising his Constitutional rights part of this democracy you speak of?

If that talking point is new to you, the record can't be broken.

Oops.

Republicans tried to overturn the 2016 election, by your logic.
You loons were the ones screaming Russian Collusion. With zero evidence it turns out. You did it all for the sake of democracy we know. Our heros.

I don't think we have enough evidence to investigate this.

Psshh. It ain't no thang.

Just take your four years of constant criticism and maybe even Joey being thrown out for his family debauchery and suck it up buttercup.

Then they can work on Camel girl.

Should be a fun ride!
