Talk about a clown car, this is it. Ted Cruz was caught on tape by an undercover reporter claiming to be a MAGA, who wanted to know why he didn’t do more to protect Donald Trump’s interests January 6. Cruz then claimed that it was he who led the fight to overturn the election results.

What’s entertaining about this, is Teddy loses all sight of the crux of the issue, did Biden win or did he not, and he makes it into an issue of votes. He didn’t have “the votes.” It’s government reduced to arithmetic only, no sense of the merit of the issue. It’s exactly like Trump talking about ratings. Same thing.

If that isn’t comical enough for you, another Capitol Riot alumnus, Mo Brooks, is being sued for his participation in the insurrection, and he’s avoiding service of process. This brings back memories of Sean Spicer hiding in the shrubs. Daily Beast:

If you see Rep. Mo Brooks hiding in a bush or a broom closet, maybe this could help explain why. According to a lawyer for Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), the Alabama Republican keeps dodging efforts to serve him with a lawsuit that accuses him of inciting the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. PunchBowl reports that Swalwell’s legal team has successfully managed to serve the complaint to its three other defendants—Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Rudy Giuliani—but Brooks has avoided all attempts so far. PunchBowl reports that Swalwell’s team even hired private investigators to help track down Brooks and serve him the legal papers, but he evaded those efforts too. The congressman appeared at the pro-Trump rally before the Jan. 6 insurrection and ordered the crowd to “start taking down names and kicking ass!” Swalwell’s lawyer, Philip Andonian, accused Brooks of making a “political stunt” out the “formality” of being served. The congressman didn’t comment on the PunchBowl report.

And the congressman won’t. Now what the good people of Alabama need to do is assess if this is who they want representing them in the U.S. Senate. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of mettle here, or responsible action — not that that will distinguish him from the people who are already there, the question is merely, do we need another one?

This is who Mo Brooks is. The fact that he can even be contemplating reelection to his present office after this, much less contemplating a higher office, would boggle the mind in any other day and age. Now it makes perfect sense.

The one thing to bear in mind at all times is that Trump started the ball rolling but his enablers in the House and Senate kept it in play. They are traitors to America in every sense of the word.

Only the best people. If these are the best, may God save us from the worst.

  1. There is a lot I object to about Hawley. He headed up one prong of the plan to overturn the election, and that in itself was despicable. However his comments in that LP spot are fine, and if we imagine otherwise, we are as revisionist as any right-winger. Contrary to the LP tweet, in that spot Hawley was not talking about the “terrorists who stormed” the capitol, and Hawley himself makes that very clear. We don’t know if the people he was waving at are the same people who later committed insurrection. I hate propaganda, whatever the source. We weaken our own case when we overreach. Criticize Hawley for his actual actions, and do not take other actions and give them a new and different context in order to criticize him for something he did not do.

    • I’m with you – we have to be better than the other side. I suspect a comment like this could be made to quite a few posts on here ?. But i know it’s easy to get carried away.

      • Once in a while the chief writers here do get carried away, but thankfully it is not an everyday. every post occurrence. Unlike say, the Federalist, et al, which is all propaganda, all the time.

        • Let me know when you think one of the writers here is getting carried away. Please. I stand by my work and so do the others.

    • I just now saw this comment or I would have said something sooner. Josh Hawley is a liar and an insurrectionist. He is whitewashing his role in the Capitol riot and you’re defending him is simply stunning. If we end up losing democracy it will be because of people who can’t discern the difference between disingenuousness/lies and a normal day in Washington, D.C. The interviewer here is a moron and Hawley is taking advantage of that fact. That is as obvious as the breathing mechanism in the middle of your face.
