Minutes after Trump said he wouldn’t run and hide, he runs and hides.

I don't care what anybody says. Trump's trials won't help his poll numbers.

We don’t really know Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Maybe we should listen to those who do.

When they were young, I read books nightly to my two children. There was no children's author who my kids and I enjoyed more than Roald Dahl. Incidentally, Dahl wrote for adults too including at least one episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. One of Dahl's books that my kids and I especially enjoyed was "Fantastic Mr. Fox".

Mr. Fox's antagonists were three farmers alliteratively named Boggis, Bunce and Bean...one fat, one short, one lean. Here the gun-toting villains are as illustrated by Quentin Blake:


Today in Congress we have a quartet who are a match for Dahl's treacherous trio. The are known as the The Seditious Four and conveniently also have alliterative names: Gosar, Gohmert, Gaetz and Greene. Dahl might have had fun writing about this fact-free foursome.

The news conference held by this coalition of House GOP firebrands was cut short after a group of counter-protesters gathered behind the lawmakers. This was concurrent to the House Select Committee Hearing Investigating 1/6.

The Republican lawmakers had gathered to press the Department of Justice (DOJ) for a status report on individuals arrested following the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, who they referred to as “political prisoners.”'

In the video below Gosar, Gohmert, Gaetz and Greene are heckled during their press conference this morning.
