It may be of passing interest that Josh Hawley was Missouri Attorney General (20172019). Given that, and the fact that he was well educated one can only wonder. I guess he is now working at being the leader of all?

Didja see Josh Hawley's name on the straw ballot at CPAC?

Nope.

Ron DeSantis was next behind Trump. While the junior senator from bumfu*k did not commit a crime when he pumped that fist it may have still been a mistake as far as his future in politics. Depending on which way the political wind blows...we are not out of the woods yet.

See Pecker poles

Since Gov Abbot doesnt even get a point, he is opening up Texas covid precautions, to take the story off of his disastrous leadership on energy. I guess he hopes this will make him look like a strong MAGA Gov like DeSantis, who is doing well in the polls.

There's a rumor that Cullen DeHurd is the current leader of the GOP.

He was a sitting senator giving encouragement to a bunch of looters. Seems to me that is on a par with somebody cheering on a rapist? I am not convinced that is not illegal. If not illegal is surely wasn't right?

I REALLY want those jerks dealt with!

Oh, I know, wishful thinking doesn't really work......

Depends on whose eyes you're looking through.

Racheal Maddow had the transcript of the proceedings on that guy who had his feet up on Pelosi's desk during the insurrection. He was complaining about still being in custody when others are bailing out. The judge asked the prosecutor about his charges in reference to making a plea deal. His hardest count has a 20 year sentence and a $250,000 fine! Even with a plea deal, I bet he does 5.

Everybody is treating the insurrection as a party that went a bit far, but over a hundred police officers were injured and people died. Most of them are going to prison, and that's going to change a lot of folks attitude about it.

Republican senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Josh Hawley of Missouri, John Kennedy of Louisiana and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee have all said they will block Merrick Garlands nomination as AG. You bet they are opposed! As soon as the Justice Department has an AG, the shiz hits the fan. None of them has any immunity from prosecution, and Garland has already said the insurrection investigation will go where the facts lead it. If a law has been broken, his Justice Department will pursue it. Fortunately, they can only block his confirmation for one week. It takes just 51 votes to confirm him, and all the Democrats, the VP, as well as Mitch McConnell have said they will vote for him.
