Kevin McCarthy is a buffoon
The MAGA leader of the House Republican Conference from Bakersfield, California, took an oath to defend the US Constitution when he was elected to the United States Congress in 2006. He desecrated that oath. He broke it . He betrayed it. No public promise made by Kevin McCarthy is worth the paper it is printed on. It is all nonsense.
McCarthy’s cynicism is almost immeasurable. The GOP “Commitment to America” is a platitudinous bundle of nonsense and tripe, wrapped in a layer of fraudulence beginning with the errant Abraham Lincoln quote that frames it. It turns out the quote is from a 1986 Lehman Brothers ad that erroneously attributed it to Lincoln. It is appropriate. The MAGA/GOP alliance will do for democracy what Lehman did for the economy in 2008.
Incredibly, the mishmash of incompetence from Team McCarthy didn’t stop with the fake Abraham Lincoln quote. It was just the opening bid. The contrived images of Americana turned out to be not so American after all. They were Russian and Ukrainian pictures. The incredible Jennifer Bendery story in the Huffington Post almost beggars belief.
It is all 100%, triple-A, weapons-grade bullshit. All of it.
The GOP “Commitment to America” is a sham. It is “crappola” that lacks commitment, conviction or seriousness —and it is not on the level at all.
