Presenting.....the new Duchess of Dumb

 Kayleigh McEnany may be gone, but Washington still has to deal with a Duchess of Dumb.

The mantle, for lack of a better term, has been passed to freshman Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. She followed through with her threat to introduce articles of impeachment against President Biden, dating back to his time as Vice President, on charges that have long since been debunked.

Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains, with an ad at the end.

So why is this Georgia Peachbrain doing this? Because former President Trump is facing an impeachment trial of his own, and, this Dumb Dora believes, what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Not in this case. There is evidence supporting the belief that Trump encouraged and/or incited the siege on the Capitol 2 weeks ago. The GOP case against the Biden family had smoke, but no fire. No sizzle or steak. No evidence. And you know, as we talked about it yesterday, MTG would be wise not to cross Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who would shred MTG's case in mere seconds. In other words, Marjorie Mushmind has no case, and will be exposed as being too naive to realize she's wrong. Farron Cousins thinks she's mentally ill because she bought into that QAnon BS. No, she's not. She's just another walking stereotype, the kind that Don Henley referenced in "Dirty Laundry" back in 1983, except that she's not in the news business, but in politics, which is even more dangerous for dim bulbs.

Off-topic, sort of:

Right this minute (Saturday morning, 1:00 pm CST), TCM is running Gore Vidal's The Best Man.
Vidal wrote the stage play in 1960; he wrote the screenplay in 1964.
And he passed on in 2012 - three years before Mr. Trump decided to enter elective politics.
I bring it up here because there's a line of dialogue toward the end that, given the most recent developments in politics, is downright prescient with regards to our erstwhile Chief Executive.

I thought about turning this into a quiz, but since I don't know when you're going to read this, what the hell ...

It's when Henry Fonda says to Cliff Robertson:
... you have no sense of responsibility toward anybody or anything and that is a tragedy in a man and it is a disaster in a President!

As noted above, Gore Vidal wrote those words in 1960.
In that year, Donald Trump was 14 years old (born 1946).
That would put him in middle school (assuming he wasn't cutting classes ...).

Just thought you might like to know ...
