Yesterday K-Mac said he won’t support a Stupid Coup Commission, because its scope would be too narrow
to derail the investigation without including all the BLM protests last summer.
Then Nancy Smash correctly assessed the situation:
“Leader McCarthy won’t take yes for an answer. In his Feb. 22 letter, he made 3 requests to be addressed in Democrats’ discussion draft. Every single one was granted by Democrats, yet he still says no.”
And then from the department of the totally obvious…
Sen. Mike Rounds (R-SD) —who was NOT among the handful of Republicans who voted to convict Trump after The Stupid Coup—
Then Hair Füror put his
3-inch lifts, er, foot down on The Stupid Coup Commission, and it remains a mystery why. Yes, from his fake blog-like thingie, The Desk of Lord Damp Nut:
“Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission. It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately. Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left. Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!”
And it seems that besides bats, K-Mac heard the high pitched squeal from Merde-a-Lardo, as Politico/Tiger Beat on the Potomac breathlessly informs us:
McCarthy races to contain GOP defections on Jan. 6 commission
“…Dozens of Republicans are privately considering voting for the Jan. 6 commission — which McCarthy himself said he opposed earlier Tuesday, even after he deputized one of his allies, Rep. John Katko of New York, to strike a bipartisan agreement on the proposal. In a sign of momentum, the bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus, of which Katko is a member, formally voted to endorse the legislation Tuesday evening.
Just days after GOP leaders decided they wouldn’t force their members’ hands either way, McCarthy and his leadership team issued an informal “leadership recommendation” ahead of the Wednesday vote, urging a “no” vote to help contain defections in their party. Former President Donald Trump also sought to shut down the commission on the eve of the floor vote, calling it a “Democrat trap” and urging Republicans to get “much tougher and much smarter.”
Clearly, K-Mac is worried that if he doesn’t contain it, well…
The Coup Klux Klan’s opposition to the commission includes
Manny People, er, many lawmakers who have tried to re-write history:
- Rep. Paul Gosar called the individuals who violently broke into the Capitol peaceful patriots and declared that the DOJ is harassing them.
- Rep. Ralph Norman tried to claim that the insurrection was NOT GQP loyalists, (but rather Antifa and BLM, despite the fact that Hair Füror weeks before had invited Possum Hollar to his “Stop the Steal” rally and then ordered them to march to the Capitol.
- Rep. Andrew Clyde shamelessly tried to convince us it was a normal tourist visit. And then pictures of him assisting to block the door, and shrieking as he was guarded by gun-wielding security people surfaced.
- K-Mac hisself claimed that twice impeached LOSER ex-Prznint Stupid intervened in the riot as soon as he could; meanwhile hours passed
So of course K-Mac is worried about being forced to testify about the phone conversation he had with Hair Füror while the brigades from Possum Hollar were looking for scalps —including his!— to collect.
