Hottentotta tamulus, the Indian red scorpion.  Sort of Trump-hued, isn't he?

It's been a while since we checked on the scorpion-in-a-bottle contests.  

Let's start with the big jar and Trump-Hannity.  You read that right.  On December 31, 2020, Sean Hannity texted Mark Meadows and Gym Jordan, "I do NOT see January 6 happening the way he is being told."  Ten days later, post-riot, Hannity wrote to Meadows, "He can't mention the election again.  Ever."  Ignoring years of groveling service, Trump retorted, "I disagree with Sean on that statement and the facts [sic] are proving me right."  It looks like SpongeSean's exclusive interviews are at an end.

Texas is having an Omicron explosion and Rep. Dan Crenshaw supports bringing in help from FEMA.  For this he was denounced by Empty Greene:  "No Fema should not set up testing sites to check for Omicron sneezes, coughs and runny noses."  Said Crenshaw (no stranger to crazy himself), "Hey Marjorie, if suggesting we should follow Trump policy instead of Biden mandates makes you mad, then you might be a Democrat -- or just an idiot."   

It looks like Laura Ingraham is Trump's new Fox bestie -- she's taking credit for persuading him to cancel tomorrow's scheduled speech/press conference/torchlight parade.  Also, none of the media he claims to despise would carry it because the real President and Vice President are speaking at the Capitol.  Lindsey Graham wants it known that he got it cancelled while caddying playing golf with the orange one last weekend.  Mee-ow!  Please, there's enough Trump for both of you.

Not to be ignored, Baby Tuckoo is snarling at Kevin McCarthy for failing to somehow "punish" Twitter for closing down Empty Greene's account and thus something First Amendment something.  Meanwhile Empty is trying to persuade the rest of the 'Clown Party to quit Twitter, which would certainly teach it a lesson.  Imagine -- no more threats from the magic thumbs of Boebert or Gosar.  However will we?

Stephanie Grisham says she will cooperate with the Select Committee.  She never met the press while White House press secretary but may be uniquely positioned to reveal what went on in all the BeBest planning sessions.

Poor Kevin McCarthy -- even Pigpen Bannon attacked him for failing to "celebrate" the anniversary of the failed coup.  It's not clear what sort of party he has in mind -- Washington had a major snowstorm over the weekend so a barbecue is out of the question.  Is there a ballroom at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the conspirators set up their comm center?  How about a big reveal where the pipe-bomb guy takes off the hoodie?  And it's Andy Giuliani?  Work with me, Pig, I don't even know what kind of canapes you fascists like.

Lots of Congressional Republicans say they won't even be in town -- they're going to Atlanta for the funeral of Senator Johnny Isakson.  Isakson died on December 19 but was kept on ice to provide just such an excuse, his last service to the party.
