Worst Revolution Ever

This is an excellent piece from The Atlantic.
Why had she come to Washington? “We’re storming the Capitol!” she whined. “It’s a revolution!” Patty Hearst was more up to speed on the philosophy and goals of the Symbionese Liberation Army before she got out of the trunk. These people were dressed like cartoon characters, they believe that the country is under attack from pedophiles and “globalists,” and they are certain that Donald Trump won the election. In other words, the Founders’ worst fear—that a bunch of dumbasses would elect a tyrant—had come to pass.

@ttyymmnn Say what you will about the SLA, but they had much better operational skills than the Qanon Liberation Army. I’m probably now on a watch list for typing that.

This article is also good. This is what has baffled me since the early days of his presidency: he was incredibly, obviously unfit and uninterested in the job.
How the hell did anyone think otherwise?
@dipodomysdeserti Meal Team 6 is coming for ya.

That was a good read. I really did get the feeling like these people did not really know what to do once they actually got in the capitol building - thankfully, to be sure. It seems like this could have been an enormously tragic event if they had been more organized.
I just can't believe Congress couldn't act faster to remove the president, it seems like waiting over the weekend even was too long. Like, if this isn't an emergency, then what is?
