That has to annoy him a little, which is nice.

Good. I hope this stoopid guy gets his legal ass kicked as much as anyone else for insurrection.

Mitch said we should forgive and forget

Yeah? Well, I raided Lindsey Graham's office and now I'm selling his panties on eBay.

Do these people not have doors that lock on their offices.

Even at my crappy IT job at a Uni. I'd lock my door for nap time.

If McConnell actually bothered to keep a letter from Trump, it wasn't because he viewed it as a source of inspiration.

I wonder what the letter was about.

And now you see why he wanted to impeach: it impacted him personally. Tis the way of all Republicans. "Not something society should care about unless it happens to me, and then someone should write a law!"

The turtle wax is just a tube of KY Jelly (made with real, mashed Kentucky constituents) labeled with a post-it that reads "Not for oral consumption".

Are you under the impression that door locks were stopping the insurrectionists that day?

-Why did you take the documents?
-I'm a taxpayer!

Who the F put it in people's heads that if you pay taxes, you own everything? I swear, this ass-backwards hick republican mentality is truly baffling.

Now is not the time for arrests.
It's time for unity.
Arresting these people will tear the country apart....

Door locks don't help much when they're smashing windows and kicking doors in. Hell, give any angry person unfettered access to a building and they'll figure to how to get where they want.

When someone off-camera asks him why he took the documents, he says he is a "taxpayer," according to the warrant.

I gotta tell him, this defense didn't work so well for me when I commandeered that National Guard tank.

Shouldn't the Turtle Wax come with a copy of the home game as well?
 
2021-01-27 11:09:10 AM  
I was suddenly struck with a vision of a "sexy" Senate calendar. Lawmakers in various stages of undress, striking playful come-hither poses in the chamber, coyly hiding their naughty bits behind documents and gavels and such.

Dear Brain: You are fired. Pack your shiat and GTFO.

He's not wrong about "the" taxpayer owning it. But he is wrong about "a" taxpayer owning it.

Remember, these people do not understand nuance.

So by that logic, anything owned by the military is fair game?  Tax payers bought it, after all.

The stupidest part of Cruz and Hawley's support for the insurrection is this: do those morons really think that if the Senate had still been in the chamber when Zip Tie Guy and Camp Holocaust Dude breached it, they wouldn't have been slaughtered along with the rest?
 
2021-01-27 11:14:24 AM  
Just a misguided youngster trying to exercise his Constitutional rights, eh Mitch?
 
2021-01-27 11:15:26 AM  
Just wondering.....

...if a number of the documents, that are now in evidence against the insurrectionist, point to illegal activities involving a foreign power, could they be used as evidence for sedition in a separate case against other indviduals?

Some of the scenes from inside the Capitol, particularly the incident where that woman was shot, looked like outtakes from the Battle of Helm's Deep in LOTR

"What can locked doors do against such reckless hate?"

In that case they should be pleased that Hillary used an unsecured email server so that they could access her emails whenever they felt like it.

There's no Fruit of the Poisonous Tree analysis that would prevent federal authorities rom using them as evidence.  THEY didn't steal them and the people that did weren't doing so on their behalf

I'm starting to thing these jovial thugs weren't all that organized- apparently some didn't get the message that they shouldn't be ransacking the offices of those protecting Dear Leader.

as a technical note, if you want to have a single currency union with consistent value across that union you have to have a mechanism for leveling out the various rates of productivity growth between those states.  You can send tax monies in excess of those collected to be be spent in the low productivity states, thus raising their productivity, or you can forgive debt.  In the US we send excess tax monies.to the low productivity states to help try to keep them up with the high productivity states.  The EU has no central tax authority, so they must forgive debt.

The GOP will refuse to get rid of Trump for some short term breathing space but will have to deal with him sucking all the oxygen out of the GOP room for the foreseeable future.


2022 will be a referendum on Trump not Biden
And they might as well give Trump the 2024 nomination if they don't vote to impeach

I can see the GOP in 2023 if Trump dies see we did the right thing we don't have to worry about him and didn't have to piss off his base, only to be shocked when one of his kids claims he is the heir and jumps right in

A law enforcement officer stopped Allan from leaving with the flag, but he got out with the papers, the videos show, according to the arrest warrant.

"got out with" indeed. It wasn't some daring escape. The cops allowed him, and all the other white guys, to walk out without being detained, searched or questioned.

No wonder Mitch was mad about the storming of the capitol.  He was personally affected.
