This was a painful, but necessary display

Yesterday, despite increasing levels of insanity, Congress was all set to make the protest official. GOP Senators and Representatives would lend their credibility, position and reputation to put a gentile political spin over all of the conspiracy theories to give it a veneer of legitimacy.

Then the MAGAts jumped on to the table, dropped their pants and showed their assholes to the world. In one day, they did more to shock the system back into reality than four years of investigation will ever produce.

Most of you will believe I am crazy but I think that yesterday's dangerous and embarrassing spectacle will turn out to be a net positive. Sometimes a festering wound needs to boil over to let the poison out.

All along I have felt like Hilary got it right that about half of his supporters are deplorables. The others are traditional conservatives who just could not see themselves as anything else so they went along for the ride. This is a wake up call for them.

1. As I stated last nite, this backfired on the cultists badly.

This was that line that is occasionally overstepped.

2. But are they truly even deplorable?

The word "deplorable" is from the French language. It implies that they are worth weeping over.

4. Evil works.

We all know exactly what that word means.

3. The most shocking display yet of the cult.

Laid bare for all to see. There's simply no defending it on any level. And it's clear that anyone still doing that is certifibly on the fringe. It might have been the wake-up call that hypnotized (or blackmailed) Republicans and the media needed. There IS no turning back.

6. Their hatred of Dems and anything left

is their central reason of action.
There doesn't exist a common ground apparently, after surviving these 4 years.
