The Current Movie in Congress: Ground Hog Day in Hell

Observers of the current session of Congress can be excused if they feel a sense of Deja vu while watching the re-occurring clown show in the House.

A comedy came out in 1993 where a cynical television weatherman (Bill Murray) becomes trapped in a time loop, forcing him to relive a Ground Hog Day event in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Since then, the comedy has become a classic. 

There's nothing funny about what the clown caucus is currently doing in the House - day in, and day out. Their repeated attacks against President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, Merrick Garland, the DOJ, and the FBI have become a fixture cast in clueless concrete for the extreme Republicans agenda.

The same questions are asked repeatedly because they're not listening to the truth or following evidence in their sham investigations.

The whole purpose of these fake hearings is to keep the lies alive in the MAGA universe through sheer repetition. That form of brainwashing was used by crooked populist/ politicians for decades. Now Trump has refined that tactic (with the help of right-wing media outlets) and turned it into a threat to democracy.

When average Americans watch these shameful hearings, they have to be disgusted by the blatant partisanship that has nothing to do with improving their lives. 

Instead, those brave viewers who do watch (or read about) our current Ground Hog Day in Hell, realize a government shutdown is days away as the MAGA morons strut around the House repeating the same lies and hoping for a different result each time. 

The definition of stupidity is: " A lack of intelligence, understanding reason, or wit, an inability to learn."

Taking stupidity, a couple of steps further I recommend watching the 2003 movie titled Stupidity (it depicted examples and analyses of stupidity in modern society) ...and

the 2006 movie Idiocracy (it explores a dystopian future where the average American's IQ equates to mental retardation in our era.)

Because those rogue Republicans are in the majority (and controlled by their minority) there seems to be no way of moving on with what should be the business of the people's House.

As it stands, time is running out amidst these theatrical politics making a government shutdown seem almost inevitable. The drama from that will be another circle of hell brought to us by extreme Republicans.
