Quote Of The Day - "A Great Unfolding Treason"

Charles P. Pierce on the shambles the U.S. Government finds itself in, thanks not only to the Trump crime family and its minions, but to their elected Republican enablers:
There's a great unfolding treason now—not just the precise constitutionally defined treason, but a general betrayal of reason, of self-government, of honesty and of high office. They are now committing treason against themselves, grim betrayal winding around itself in coils ever tightening until there is nothing but the foul exhaling of the final breath of things that once belonged to better people than them.
See post below for the merest shards of proof.

Now THAT'S a quote for the ages!

Charles Pierce is a calmer and saner version of one of my favorite writers about American politics: Hunter S. Thomoson.

Victor - Good comparison! We're quite fond of the way Pierce skewers his targets, and this quote accurately captures an entire political party's shameful behavior.
