So this is new? This is news?
Kenny Boy Paxton is a really bad guy? Kenny Boy is a thug? And a criminal? And a shakedown mobster? And a tribal hack? Dang. How long has this been going on?
Well, how about since January of 2015 when he became Texas’ attorney general?
Look, I’m taking a “better late than never” approach to Saturday’s historic impeachment of Paxton. But what finally motivated Republican enablers to take out their garbage?
We know it wasn’t ethics or scruples. That leaves us with “self-preservation.”
Now we’ll see if Paxton survives his Senate trial, presided over by Grandstander in Chief Dan Patrick.
Hold off for now on taking that sigh of relief. We’re still not out of debt ceiling default danger. If you think Republicans can’t still fuck this up, you don’t know your Republicans. And you think McCarthy is going to be able to herd those mangy alley cats?
