Welcome to February, Crooks and Liars! Today we size up the political landscape, and realize that the Republicans are as crazed as a pack of beagles in a vacuum cleaner factory.

Infidel753 tells us that the Republican civil war is already over.

What Would Jack Do says that the GOP is America's clown car. No argument here!

Notes to Ponder argues with the Freedom of Speech, and yes, Marjorie Taylor Greene is exhibit A.

Bonus Track: Because we're all about pop culture, Open Culture announces that PBS American Masters has release 1,000+ hours of uncut, never-before-seen interviews, including with Patti Smith, David Bowie, Neil Young, and many, many more.
