House Republican Jim Banks has excitedly announced a new group he has formed. And Banks appears really happy about it. The question is: should the American people be? I don’t think so. This caucus will be called the “antiwoke caucus.” I kid you not.

Banks says he and the other members of this very important caucus will “combat institutionalized wokeness.” He also says he will regularly host meetings on the topic of wokeness, with the goal being to better understand “the long tentacles of the wokeness regime.” Tentacles?

This statement caused the writer of this piece (me) to break out into uncontrollable giggles, which arrived, I suspect, as a result of the realization I had that the GOP isn’t really as bad as I’ve described them — they’re far, far worse. The GOP IS ADRIFT ON DENIAL.

Not the beautiful that flows into the Mediterranean sea. No, not that. I’m speaking of denial — a complete lack of awareness as to reality and what reality encompasses.

In the world of politics, the reality is that to win power; one needs votes. And to get those votes, one needs voters. The GOP seems well and determined to turn off almost ALL their potential voters except the ultra-far right. Now I can hear you saying but they won the house. They did, indeed.

But not by much. And if anything, the GOP has gone FURTHER into the waters of denial. They’re on a raft right now of utter non-acceptation and nonsense. The GOP will kick off the 2024 election in worse shape than the 2022 midterms. It’s true. It’s only January, and they have successfully made themselves look like the fools they are.


Ridiculous abortion bills that go nowhere. And now this. The GOP ran on the promise of helping the American people. OK, we always knew they were lying, but their voters didn’t know. And this stupid, stupid move will turn off more people. The GOP is playing to its alt-right base. But there simply aren’t enough of them.

And in this process, they’re managing to turn off everybody else. So let Banks form this ridiculous committee that won’t ever accomplish anything and will further make the GOP look like idiots. I think I feel another attack of the giggles coming on.
