Kind of subliminal. But watching that Shakespearian comedy unfold, with its interludes of dire drama, was fascinating.

I wonder if ambitious Marjorie Taylor Green thinks she’s Lady MacBeth? (I wonder if MTG has ever even heard of MacBeth?). I wonder what Lauren Bobert imagines herself to be? (you just know she’s never even heard of the Bard) There are a number of bit-players, each of whom could play The Fool, but there’s only one Fool allowed per play.

Ooooh, maybe MTG and Bobert could play two of the three Weird Sisters.

Yes, there will be knife-work in the dark corridors …..

where Jordan nominates Scalise and McCarthy flips out on the floor of the House and rips off his suit and stands there in his boxers with his spindly legs and bony knees hanging out and challenges them both to a fight? It somehow would be fitting if Gosar also went all psycho at the sight of an overwrought McCarthy and joined in the fray while threatening everybody with a dental probe.

I'm sure he must realize how his physical limitations would impede his effectiveness.
