My last couple of posts have been prompted by the deeply un-democratic and troubling actions of the US Republicans, which I sent up in my new smash hit stage show, Trump! The Musical (see Act One here and Act Two here).
But something happened last week which was so gob-smackingly appalling, so mind-blowingly incredible, that it went far beyond satire. Something that made even Trump’s suggestion that people should inject bleach to combat COVID, seem almost acceptable. Yep, that bad.
I am, of course, talking about the poster-girl for monumental stupidity that is Marjorie Taylor Greene (Rep. GA). In a recent House Committee hearing, this amazing woman hit such hitherto unreached levels of ignorance (even for someone presumably educated by creationists), that I feel I have to comment on it.
