Mo Brooks belongs in jail, not the senate, after fomenting violence on January 6. Nonetheless, he’s announcing his candidacy for retiring Alabama senator Richard Shelby’s seat on Monday, after having taken a recent pilgrimage to Mar-a-Lago and receiving the blessing of Trump himself. You recall that Brooks was the first congressman to announce he would challenge election results. I don’t think you need to be Clarence Darrow to argue that Brooks is an insurrectionist, and that the horrific rally was the proximate cause of the death and destruction at the Capitol that day.
Yeah. So here’s Mo Brooks at Trumps insurrection rally inciting the MAGA cult that “today was the day to start kicking some ass”
Now today he’s like I knew they were all really antifa pretending to be MAGA so what I did doesn’t count.#TrumpCoupAttempt pic.twitter.com/p1vl9XvUQ5

Now here is where it gets beyond parody. The Bullet and Barrel is a shooting range in Huntsville, Alabama, a town which earned the nickname “Little Bavaria” because Werner von Braun and other Nazi rocket scientists moved there in 1950, as part of Operation Paperclip. Now, Huntsville, once known for its moonshine and the propensity of its inhabitants to forego footwear, then known for its famous Nazis, is hosting Brooks and Miller.
Do you love the Valentine’s Day style of the invitation, the colors and the cursive writing?

Are they wearing their sheeted hoods at this event or going casual?

And make no mistake about what a real sweetheart Brooks is. He doesn’t believe political leaders should speak out against domestic violence.
Asked by @ChrisCuomo if he thinks political leaders should speak out more forcefully against domestic violence, @RepMoBrooks says he thinks "too often there's a rush to judgment," mentions single example of men being wrongly accused.
"She was lying for whatever reason," he says. pic.twitter.com/Fd0SiVf1CX

We’ve got to get Doug Jones elected to this seat. This is Roy Moore sicko time, redux, with Stephen Miller reprising the Steve Bannon role.
