Speaking of! This poor farmer-senator, a devout Christian and Republican, who audited Michigan's 2020 election and is so fucking sad that all his neighbors are believing these fucking grifters and Trump, who's calling him out by name as COVER UP. If you have any more pageviews remaining at The Atlantic, this is excellent.
Fox is ignoring its star Tucker Carlson's BOMBSHELL ACCUSATION that the NSA is spying on him, because of how he's a huge liar. To wit!
If you're like me, you've endured the frustration of having a package delayed. If you're like Carlson, you've vented that frustration on your nationally televised cable news show by suggesting that nefarious forces at UPS may have seized your delivery as part of a plot to elect Joe Biden president. Just days before the 2020 election, Carlson claimed on-air that a cache of documents about Biden's family that his staff had sent across the country to him had mysteriously vanished. When UPS subsequently tracked down the thumb drive in question, which had been separated from its packaging in a facility, Carlson's response was to tell his audience, "Someone, for some reason, opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family." Strangely, Carlson never reported on the supposedly election-shifting documents in question.

Dan Patrick getting a talk canceled because it was about how the white rage at Mexico banning slavery led to the Alamo, and then Liz Cheney, Ashli Babbitt, Mike Pompeo, and Martin Luther King. I'm not entirely sure the throughline works on this one, unless the throughline is "some of the many astounding bullshits they perpetrated this week." — Salon

Even Richard Neal, the "Democrat" House Ways and Means Committee chairman who keeps fucking legislation to avert "surprise billing," thinks we need to crack down on abuse of retirement tax shelters for the ultra-rich, and has a bill to address Peter Thiel's $5 billion ROTH Ira. He just also happens to have this other bill that will make it impossible for the IRS to do anything about it! Ho ho ho, isn't life rich. (ProPublica)
