Welcome to Crazy Town

So, the Republicans won control of the House of Representatives. The People's House, the People's body.

Now, these Republican House members campaigned on:

  1. Gas costs too much
  2. Inflation is too high
  3. Cities are hellscapes of crime
  4. Crime is coming for the rural areas
  5. Biden opened the southern border to Mexicans

So clearly, that will be their focus, right?

Not so much....

Per the Washington Post

Wednesday evening, Republicans formally won control of the House.

Thursday morning, in the first public act of the new majority, senior House Republicans revealed their most urgent priority: They would investigate Hunter Biden.

The incoming chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the incoming chairman of the Oversight Committee, James Comer (R-Ky.), and about 10 other members of the brand-new majority walked into the House TV studio first thing Thursday to announce multiple probes into the president’s son.

“Hunter Biden was conducting business with suspected human traffickers,” they asserted, and “Hunter Biden and Joe Biden were involved in a scheme to try to get China to buy liquefied natural gas,” and “credit cards and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled,” and “Hunter wanted keys made for Joe Biden” to his office. They mentioned Hunter two dozen times in their opening statements alone.

Is Hunter Biden a douch and possibly a criminal? Yes. Worse than Don Jr., Invanka, or Eric Trump? God no. Did the Democrats run endless investigations into the Trump children, who were actually employed in the White House? No. (Corollary: Did Hunter Biden ever work in the White House? No.)

But their focus on Hunter Biden is a ruse designed to distract that they have no plans. The Republicans did not, actually, express any other action on their political promises.
