Forgive me ahead of time. There is an old South Park parody about how Joseph Smith founded the Mormon religion. I do not condone mocking others’ religions. However, the episode was a musical, linked here, in which each verse was followed by a five-beat “dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb” summary. I could not get the “dumb dumb dumb …” beat out of my head as I read the latest exploits of Matt Gaetz, trust fund guy-DUI guy-Captain Kangaroo guy-dumbest representative not named Gohmert guy. Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.
On Wednesday, a group of right-wing representatives led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tried to storm into a secure facility for classified information being used as part of the impeachment proceedings, demanding to be informed of the process.
Because nothing says “defending an accused crime” by attempting to commit another crime, right?
They are almost certain to be ejected because they are not members of the committees reviewing the evidence.
And we know this, because Gaetz attempted to bust into the meeting last week, only to have his ass kicked out. Dumb dumb dumb …
But, for all the dumbness of Gaetz’s move, it is actually a reflection on how dumb he presumes Republican voters to be. I would guess that Gaetz believes that Republican voters don’t know that there are, actually, Republicans attending the depositions who can leave the room and immediately tell Gaetz what happened – provided they are willing to break the law. We know that Gaetz is willing to break the law, so …
More than two dozen House conservatives rail on Schiff and the process outside the closed impeachment proceedings, and have now entered the SCIF – and they are bound to be kicked out bc they don’t serve on the three committees conducting the probe. It is being led by Matt Gaetz

Two dozen? Dumb dumb …
We are beyond parody here. History is going to be very unkind to today’s GOP, hopefully for generations.
Having said that Ds need to explain more forcefully why this process is normal, routine, used by both parties; and that DOJ passed on a CIA criminal referral of Trump. https://t.co/82TMNR3YV6

At this point, I am not sure why Democrats should be explaining themselves at all to these people anymore.
God help us all. Oh, and, again – forgive me. The “dumb dumb” verse is an inside joke between my daughter and I. She can’t be with me now as I write, as she is in school. Smart smart smart smart smart.
