GOP lies disrespect democracy
Everyone expects politicians to exaggerate. A hyper-positive pose is what successful politicians assume.

The GOP’s real target — the Voting Rights Act

Senate trial proves again Trump still owns the GOP
It’s been three months since Trump decisively lost the election to Biden. Yet you can still count on one hand the number of top Republican officials who have appeared on the national Sunday TV talk shows to condemn Trump’s actions.
