An Eminently-Skimmable Book

Renegade, by Adam Kinzinger. He's a Christian conservative who is, as you might have guessed, dismayed that his political party has turned into a fascist cult of personality.

I did learn that "accidentally" hitting other congressmen in the back is a dick move that McCarthy was known for. And that when the mob invaded the Capitol, Kinzinger was sitting in his office, alone, with the door locked and a Ruger LCP on his desk. He had given his staff the day off because he had been paying attention and he suspected that shit was going to get real.

But as for the rest of the book? Other than his personal history, as far as the politics go, the rise of the Tea Party, the events leading up to the TOFF's Coup Day and the aftermath, if you have been paying any attention to the news coverage (on non-Fox platforms), you probably won't learn anything. And those who have partaken of the MAGA Kool-Aid won't read it, so I'm not quite certain what Kinzinger thought that he was accomplishing by doing this book.

Kinzinger is holding to hope that his party will get over Trump and recover from the insanity of the past few decades. To that, I say: Objection, assumes facts not in evidence.

Sets up an interesting conundrum for the R’s. They should be happy to commit American support to Guyana, because Venezuela is the attacker…but Putin’s puppies will be confused by the fact that Vlad wants this, what to do?
