Who's Sorry Now?

I can't help wondering how many Republicans haven't had a decent night's sleep in months, especially since the J-6 hearings began.

Is tomorrow the day my name comes up? Who are these witnesses coming forward with information - and are they talking about me? If so, what are they saying?

The stress must be overwhelming - along with the regrets.

Why did I let myself get caught-up in this shit-storm? Why didn't I just keep my head down, and stay out of it? Why did I risk my political career, and perhaps a prison sentence, to be a 'player', 'one of the guys'?

And then there's the biggest question of all:

How did I not know that any plot concocted by a failed businessman, lying narcissist, fake billionaire, corrupt, orange-faced buffoon like Donald Trump was going to fail spectacularly?

It's not like the writing wasn't on the wall, folks.

While Trump may be the dumbest schemer in the GOP, it's not like he didn't have competition for the title.

I live hundreds of miles from D.C. - but I can smell the flop-sweat from here.

1. I hope you are right and they are all laying in bed stressed out all night

But I think there are still plenty of them with no regrets. Yet. Some of them have the idea that what they did was a noble effort to save America. Some of those will think that even after they are behind bars.

2. As long as they're behind bars ...

... who gives a fuck what they think?

These yahoos saw the failure of Trump Steaks, Trump Airlines, Trump Casino, Trump Vodka, Trump University, and the Trump Charitable Foundation - just to name a few.

And yet they heard about Trump's Coup and thought, yeah, this IS a sure-fire winner - count me in!

5. I do not care what they think.

Just want this whole sordid mess cleaned up.

Leave it to Boris Johnson to say. The United States has had their problems lately, but to me it is still THE SHINING CiTY ON THE HILL, in his latest interview.

I did not know Boris was born in New Your City!

19. I think NO proof that tRump calculates how much can he GRIFT as profit from any new venture.....

..... if the profit outweighs the startup and investment costs he goes for it.

Maybe eventually the courts will force a reconciliation via fines. But he had the cash to rob Peter to pay Paul at the moment.

How many actual providers (steaks, alcohol) never got paid?

3. I doubt they regret anything.

To do so requires a conscience, and they left theirs behind long ago.

Fear, yes. Regret, no. They hope they can still get away with stealing democracy and making America a cesspool.

7. Respectfully disagree.

Regret has a way of seeping into the psyche the minute you realize there are consequences to your actions - and those consequences can be extremely unpleasant.

Regret doesn't require a conscience. It merely requires recognition that you got caught, and wish you hadn't been.

There is nothing that can concentrate the mind moreso than a hangman's noose at the morning light.

6. Watching Ron Johnson and a few others...

...they are thinking about it. They are worried about criminal charges, in my opinion.

There is a county clerk here in Colorado that got involved in the voting machine scam of Rudy and others and has been charged with more than a half-dozen election crimes. She is reported to be pointing her finger at Boebert.

I am sure there are many others in the same boat.

9. I heard Connie Francis singing as I read this.

Looking forward to hear the testimony today and then watching the fur fly.

10. I hope that none of them knows a moment's rest or peace for the rest of

their misbegotten lives. And after.

12. I'd like to know the methodology that was used to snare so many into such bad deeds.

I know that those types of people are probably suckers for swindles, etc., but I'm betting that there is a playbook somewhere talking about how to get them entrapped.

Perhaps a small barely illegal activity and then more such as taking bribes, videos of certain activities, threats against families.

17. There's more to this story.

Putin, Epstine and other mob type financiers that use blackmail as their main tool are way deep in this story. It's the only thing that makes sense.

14. Republicans have moved in lockstep for what seems like

decades, certainly since noodles Gingrich. When independent thought or action is going to draw the ire of your benefactors and colleagues I can see why so many jumped into the clown car the Orange ShitGibbon was driving.

16. Conservatives

don't have that problem of a conscious. They are not lying sleepless in bed. If anything, they are up at night plotting their next attempt at taking over. Most, if not all of them, would vote for the Orange Shytstain again. Ethics, morals, integrity, honesty, good governing, that's all for schmucks if you ask a Republican. No, we will never achieve that 'more perfect union' if conservatives have any say in it, and they want the ONLY say in all things.
