The single most damning quote about the state of the GOP

Ohio Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez hasn't been in Washington long, but he's been there long enough to understand his party is rotting from the inside out.

Asked by The Hill newspaper about efforts to remove Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney from Republican Party leadership because of her vote to impeach former President Donald Trump, here's what Gonzalez said:

"If a prerequisite for leading our conference is continuing to lie to our voters, then Liz is not the best fit. Liz isn't going to lie to people. Liz is going to say what she believes. She's going to stand on principle. And if that's going to be distracting for folks, she's not the best fit. I wish that weren't the case."

Uh, wow.

Just to reiterate: This is a REPUBLICAN member of Congress elected in 2018 in the heart of the Trump era who is saying publicly that many in his party continue to lie to voters, while Cheney does not.

(Worth noting: Gonzalez and Cheney were two of the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for his role in inciting the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.)

3. Said gonads apparently being stored in some cooler at Mar-el-Mierda.

They certainly aren't on the persons of the Congressional Repubs. At least for the males.

2. The thing that makes me a bit queasy about this little byway we currently observe the GOP traveling?

Having to give even grudging praise to a Cheney. I should just say "Liz Cheney" because the only other Cheney I know of will never, ever do anything praiseworthy. That he has a continuous pump and not a pulse of any kind is just so on the nose.
