Our Congress Is A Car Filled With Idiot Clowns

Congress is a waste of space and time. Congress should be clawing back its own authority from the executive branch and actually doing things from time to time.

But they’re not focused on what matters. Instead, they are focused on camera spots.

Yesterday, Hunter Biden showed up on the Hill. The goal for him in showing up on the Hill was to try to demonstrate Republicans would not allow him to testify openly; they want him to testify behind closed doors. Originally, the committee said he could pick to testify behind closed doors or to testify openly, and then they said they actually wanted him to do both. They want him to testify behind closed doors in order to testify openly.

Realistically, you really want people to testify behind closed doors because otherwise you end up with grandstanding.

So, what did we get yesterday from both sides of the aisle? Grandstanding, instead of actually doing the work of legislating.

Nancy Mace did her part, ripping Hunter Biden. She began:

My first question is who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question.” Then she continued: “Second question, you are the epitome of white privilege. Coming into the Oversight Committee, spitting in our face, ignoring a congressional subpoena to be deposed. What are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up here. Mr. Chairman, I think that Hunter Biden should be arrested right here and right now and go straight to jail.

This is the kind of stuff that gets sent out in fundraising emails and achieves absolutely nothing.

Not only that, but Republicans should stop accusing people of being beneficiaries of white privilege because the real privilege that Hunter Biden has is not that he is white. It’s that he’s Joe Biden’s son.

All you end up doing when you make white privilege references is opening the door to dolts like AOC to grandstand. And so she did, responding:

I’m just going to address briefly, quickly, that moment about privilege and all of this that we’re seeing here. And it was a very beautiful speech by the gentlelady who, as she mentioned, helped lead on the majority, the now-majority, side on the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Subcommittee. But I think it’s so exemplary of the point that she also oversaw the elimination of Civil Rights Subcommittee on this committee, which really kind of gives the whole game away. We show up, we give speeches, we give flowery words, but, at the end of the day, participate in the structural erosion of the rights and representation of people that are marginalized: women, people of color, people that just need to see their due process and civil liberties protected in this country. 

How is it possible that Congress gets worse with each and every passing year?

Then Hunter Biden stormed out of the room as Marjorie Taylor Greene was yelling at him:

Apparently you’re afraid of my words. That’s too bad. And I think it’s clear and obvious for everyone watching this hearing today that Hunter Biden is terrified of strong conservative Republican women because he can’t even face my words, as I was about to speak to him. What a coward.

Meanwhile, on the Left side of the aisle, Jared Moskowitz was doing the same thing as he combated the Hunter Biden debacle by holding up a photo of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein.

This is where we are. This is our Congress.

This is all great for our Republic, by the way. This is all just wonderful, and I’m so glad that we can do all this on camera and everybody can get their minute of face time. It’s great.

I know that they like to say things on camera and that’s wonderful. But they are elected officials on the public dime. So at a certain point, maybe they could actually pass legislation or hold someone actually accountable. Maybe.

And what do they do for a living? I’m just wondering, at some point, if they will do something useful?

It’s all kayfabe. All Congress is at this point is a waste of space in kayfabe.

Congress is full of clowns in the circus.


This all demonstrates we have an irresponsible political party, a deeply irresponsible political class, and a broken congressional system. It is broken because the polarization of the parties makes it so.

No conversation actually takes place between the parties.

Instead, the goal of politicians is to eventually get out of politics and go make money elsewhere.

Something needs to be done about the political system of the legislature because it is full-scale, full-stop, a disaster area.
