He doesn't want to find inequity, because that would knock the legs out of his fictional platform.

Gun Culture Club: Do you really want to shoot me?

This seems to be happening much more frequently these days:

A young boy managed to get hold of a gun Thursday afternoon and shot his mother in the face as they both rode in a work truck on Interstate 95, Johnston County authorities said.

Authorities were investigating how the boy got his hands on the gun.

It can't be that big a mystery. The gun was either in the glove compartment or under the seat. Or maybe in her purse. But whatever the case, it was also loaded. And if it was an automatic, a round had probably already been chambered. Which would make the "idiot" checklist complete. Here's another one, this time taking the life of a 10 year-old girl:

They say they want the best of the best teaching their children, but in reality, they would be happy with a robot teaching from a Texas textbook.

Breaking News: Thom Tillis just might be an idiot

Apparently small donors are just as bad as dark money groups:

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) on Wednesday said broad-based, small-dollar contributions given to Democratic candidates through online donor platforms is the “same exact thing” as political spending by well-heeled “dark money” groups who are allowed to conceal their funding sources.

During a Senate panel hearing about the influence of money over the federal judiciary, Tillis appeared to take aim at ActBlue, an app that helps Democrats and liberal groups collect individual contributions in amounts that are too small to trigger mandatory disclosure rules.

Bolding mine, because little Thommy seems to have a math problem. Let's go through this again, Einstein: it would take a hundred transactions of $50 a pop to equal one $5,000 check from Daddy Warbucks. And these genuine dark money groups, which often receive between $50,000 and $250,000 from individuals, would take thousands of small transactions to achieve. Why (in the name of all that's holy) would a wealthy individual go to such trouble to mask their contributions? The answer is they wouldn't, of course. This is just Tillis grasping at strawmen:

Yep, next year's R Primary is going to be carnival show, but the D Primary might be pretty painful too...

Republicans got a hard lesson last night: "token" bi-partisanship (a handful of Dems) isn't going to cut it, they need to craft legislation that both sides can agree on.

They actually took a vote on the lack of Constitutionality and it failed. But just like the Big Lie, these things live on.

Trump, the grim reaper of the Republican Party

He's pushing people in both directions:

“The Patriot Party is a repudiation of the GOP for the central fact that they weren’t very supportive of the president, they had the majority once upon a time over the last four years, and they failed to do the things that need to be done for the American people.”

GOP leaders do have potentially more serious worries at the center-right of their party, however, as dozens of former officials, including people who have served as White House and congressional staff, met recently to discuss starting a breakaway political party to distance themselves from the Trump wing of the party, according to Reuters.

Go for it, you have my blessing. Split the party into three separate entities, and make sure you run Congressional candidates from all three as well. There will be a run on popcorn at grocery stores that will rival the Great Toilet Paper Crisis. Unfortunately, most of these Pro-Trumpers are pretty stupid:
