A Republican emailed me, angry that I called out the GOP for their ongoing embrace of the Insurrection. Here's his email, and my reply.
Agreed. That video is so lame it's hardly worth taking down. Anyone who pretends it makes a valid point is either stupid or disingenuous. Thank God that man who went to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh didn't succeed. But I was amused by a NYT satire that "both sides" every issue by saying both parties have a problem with gun violence: the Dems have a guy who turned himself into the police before causing any harm , saying he needed help...and the Republicans had the bastard who shot up the school in Uvalde and the other bastard who targeted black people in a grocery story. Both sides indeed. By the way, here in Alabama almost every ad by Republican candidates include weapons of war, from Gov. Ivey showing the adorable gun she keeps in her purse to a judge (a judge!) blasting away at a target with a gun worthy of the Terminator. Scary.
There are indeed “two sides”, but only one side started a riot at the Capitol.
