Not good enough.

Should have read:
1) ..... Who gave you the information about Justice Scalia's impending death?
2) When did you resign from the cabal requiring minor children as the initiation fee?

Oh, and in the next tweets, he basically said that Roberts hasn't sued him for libel because Roberts can't defend himself against the accusations.

These people are going to get Waco-ed, and it's going to be the only thing that forces them back underground.

Laugh if you want, but there are a LOT of unanswered questions surrounding Scalia's sudden demise. Do you actually believe a perfectly healthy man merely a month shy of his 80th birthday died "in his sleep?" If so then you probably think babies come from cabbage patches, too. Educate yourselves, people.

I think it is the inverse: They are going to produce a Timothy McVeigh, and the reaction to that is what will force them back underground.

I don't think so. There are too many of them. And for every rabid QAnon loony, there are 5 who are various degrees of fellow traveller.

Warren: They've got several. The thin blue line flag and the Gasden flag (try not to gag on the irony) are among the most common. Also, Spartan helmets and Molon Labe tattoos. MAGA hats are generally good indicators of fellow-traveller status.

Edit: Also, that whackaloonery in the above post. And, for some reason, rabbits.

Probably because rabbits multiply quickly. But I prefer to believe it's because Lennie loved to pet them.

Meanwhile, a bunch of angry right-wingers are literally storming the US capitol even as I type this. Holy shit.

Remember when peaceful protesters were tear-gassed away from a church so Trump could have a photo op while holding a Bible?

People seem to be de-registering from Team Red for some reason
Since last week’s deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, about 225 Republicans logged in to the election office in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, to change their party registration.
In Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, 192 people have changed their party registration since the Jan. 6 riot. Only 13 switched to the GOP — the other 179 changed to Democrat, independent or a third party, according to Bethany Salzarulo, the director of the bureau of elections.
In Linn County, Iowa, home to Cedar Rapids, more than four dozen voters dropped their Republican Party affiliations in the 48 hours after the Capitol attack. They mostly switched to no party, elections commissioner Joel Miller said, though a small number took the highly unusual step of cancelling their registrations altogether.
“I do think there’s a palpable shift, from knee-jerk defense of the president to ‘wow, that was a bridge too far,’” said Kirk Adams, the former Republican speaker of the Arizona House of Representatives.

Adams said he knew several people, including once-solid Trump supporters, who are switching their registrations. He said it may be weeks or months before the full impact of the insurrection is clear.

“Minds are being changed,” he said. “But you can’t go overnight from ‘I think the president’s right and the election is being stolen’ to ‘I guess he was wrong about everything.’”
