Jan. 6 committee finally takes the spotlight — hey, it's only America's future at stake
History will judge these hearings by the result: Will Trump and his minions finally face some kind of justice?
All right. All right. All right.
Matthew McConaughey showed up at the White House briefing room on Tuesday, highly emotional about the recent mass shooting in his hometown of Uvalde, Texas.
For 30 minutes he spoke without taking questions, leaving reporters dazed and confused by his appearance. (Sorry!) His plea for a bipartisan solution to gun control went viral and his appearance got big headlines.
Despite whatever else you may hear, there was probably no one who loved his appearance more than Republicans. After all, the gun issue is one they have been winning for years. Anytime anyone wants to argue about guns, virtually every member of the Republican Party opens up the Gun Bible written by the NRA and spouts the same old dogmatic slogans to push back against any commie rat who wants to try to pry their guns away from their cold, dead hands.

Welcome to the party, pal. That's exactly what I've been saying for several months. I won't go back over the grisly details, but suffice it to say that it appears Biden has finally joined the chorus.
Biden has been blamed for every calamity that has befallen the country since he took office. His detractors blame him for high inflation, high gas prices, mass shootings and the pandemic, and if given the chance would probably blame him for climate change — though most of his detractors don't believe in that, or at least claim not to. If they could, they'd blame him for toenail fungus…
