The image of Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) running behind two teenagers who had just suffered through a mass shooting at their high school sticks in our minds, hovers, and warns “Loon on the loose.” She even told them that she carried a gun in her purse. What is wrong with someone who would do that?
One of the two endangered real Republicans who sits on the House January 6 Select Committee, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), believes that he knows.
The mixed nuts, wannabe terrorist branch of the Republican Party is growing ever larger as the real Republicans are abandoning ship as fast as they can, leaving only the rats behind. And that has been the ship of fools that Minority Leader Kevin “Call-Me-Speaker” McCarthy (R-CA) wanted to lead.
Kinzinger pointed out what members of this group have in common. They have been classless, crude, rude, and nearing the violent mark. His best line about Greene throwing McCarthy under the bus was “when you dance with a skunk:”
”I hate to LOL this but I must, @GOPLeader is a living example of what happens when you try to hug a skunk. Marjorie Taylor Greene says Kevin McCarthy ‘doesn’t have the votes’ mol.im/a/10244977 via @MailOnline”
McCarthy has been willing to give up every moral, every ethical value he ever owned in a Faustian deal with the devil as he wooed Donald Trump. Then, he added Representatives Greene, Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and Lauren Boebert (R-CO). This all to become House Speaker. Perhaps, all for naught.
When Green appeared on Gaetz’s Firebrand podcast, she said:
‘[McCarthy] doesn’t have the full support [or the votes].
Trust me, I’m not going anywhere. This isn’t resignation, concession, or giving up. I still have more than one year of my term and will continue to be a forceful voice — including on the 1/6 Committee. This is just the beginning, not the end!

‘We know that Kevin McCarthy has a problem in our conference. He doesn’t have the full support to be speaker.’
‘He doesn’t have the votes that are there, because there’s many of us that are very unhappy about the failure to hold Republicans accountable, while conservatives like me, Paul Gosar, and many others just constantly take the abuse by the Democrats.’
‘Well, she doesn’t have a backpack. We should be fine.’
As Kinzinger summed them all up when he said “Boebert is trash:”
‘Boebert is TRASH.’

When Gaetz asked Greene if she respected the sitting Republican leadership during his interview, she was quick to voice her opposition:
‘I can’t respect leadership that doesn’t hold people accountable, yet allows people like me, Paul Gosar, to be constantly trampled on and abused, and then will throw us under the bus at the first given chance. I’m really sick of it.’
