In nature there are a lot of different animal species that routinely cannibalize their own group.
From chimps to sharks to hamsters, these cannibal animals kill and eat their own for a variety of disturbing reasons.
Cannibalism is one of the most enduring and universal taboos in all of Western culture.
Speaking of... in our Western culture we have a Congress that is stocked with disturbing individuals and even a whole group of GOP cannibals.
According to recent reports at least two hardliners have discussed - and proposed to Freedom Caucus (also known as the Crazy Caucus) Chair Scott Perry - trying to boot members who no longer meet the group's standards.
In layman's terms they think some of their own members aren't crazy enough. What better reason than that to devour their own in an act of ritual cannibalization?
To my delight they are signaling that one target of any ejection push is Marjorie Taylor Greene. Think about that. She's not crazy enough?
Actually, she is, but has picked the wrong people to stand alongside in the turbulent MAGA universe. Like Kevin McCarthy who they think is too aligned with GOP leaders and too critical of the group.
The fact that the group caused a lot of acrimony with its handshake deals McCarthy cut with them to get elected Speaker of the House still lingers.
The sharks are circling around one another in the Crazy Caucus in a prelude to cannibalistic mayhem in a pathetic surge to find their own identity.
As it stands, the more these crazies dine upon one another the better the outcome will be for democracy.
