    Of course it is.

    If he hadn't had the temerity to win an election then the Trumpites wouldn't have needed to storm the Capitol.

    So I told Wiggin (in this thread? Or the Proud Boys thread?) that people believe things like the claims of fraud because they put themselves in echo chambers and just don't allow themselves to hear any material that conflicts with what they wan to be the case. That. . . doesn't explain them thinking Biden is responsible for what happened Tuesday. I have no explanation for that kind of response.

    Look what you made me do. I'm not a loser; everything bad that happens to me is someone—everyone—else's fault.

    Increasingly clear (and not surprising) that a number of lawmakers were involved in the attack on the Capitol, at both federal and state levels. All should be kicked out, and all should be investigated.

    Revenge is a dish best served cold. Trump's antics probably cost the GOP both GA Senate seats and Mitch the Majority Leadership. Now it seems he's happy to wield the knife and see Trump impeached.

    Even if its post-inauguration of Biden it would be good to see Trump impeached and convicted for the records.

    It starts with preference falsification. They have to take the more extreme pro-Trump position or they'll get kicked out of their social group. When enough people do it, everyone else assumes the rest really do belief the Big Lie. And who are you not to believe what all of your social circle takes for granted?

    I missed that part, what did he do wrong during his military service? Or is that about Trump liking people who don't get caught?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't McCain quite popular in his home state, and are Republicans shooting themselves in the foot yet again here?

    Happy Birthday you blithering idiot.
    I could have had class. I could have been a contender.
    I could have been somebody. Instead of a bum
    Which is what I am

    I aim at the stars
    But sometimes I hit London
