We are told that Hell contains a special circle for liars. I hope that’s true. I also hope that everybody in America has a chance to see this ad exposing the worst liars in the GOP as just that. The Big Lie is the GOP’s hill to die on, plain and simple. And they may die on it. Nobody in this clip deserves to be reelected to office, that’s an absolute.

A lot of Republicans are openly lying to the public and their brethren are going alone with it, hoping that it will just get ignored somehow.
The worst malfeasance of all, however, is the people in Congress who lie and say that it was a normal “tour” that day. That lie is an even bigger one than the Big Lie, if that’s possible.
It is high time that these people are held accountable. When lawmakers are defending sedition, treason and violence, America has taken a very wrong turn. The GOP needs to purge its ranks of these people. That said, I’m not holding my breath. I’m hopeful, but only minimally optimistic.
