In other news, the United States was the only member of the G20 that would not recommit to implementing the Paris climate accord.

Meanwhile, Rep. Matthew Gaetz (R-FL) says Republicans lost control of the House because they didn't fuck enough chickens while they controlled oversight. If you're wondering what Republicans are taking away from the election.

Finally, the Seth Rich conspiracy theorists are shooting each other now.

A man who worked as an investigator for conspiracy theorist Jack Burkman will serve nine years in prison for shooting and wounding his ex-boss in a complicated plot involving a fake FBI exposé.

Kevin Doherty, 46, said little as Judge William T. Newman Jr. sentenced him Monday for malicious wounding and use of a firearm in commission of a felony, but he acknowledged the veracity of a set of facts read by Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Evie Eastman detailing his “serious falling out” with Burkman and the “grand ruse” he concocted in revenge.

Eastman said Doherty lured Burkman to a hotel parking garage with the false promise of turning over details of FBI misconduct.

“It was all pretend,” Eastman said.

"It was all pretend" -- the Republican party in four words.

    Well how about that? The rat fuckers are now fucking actual rats. This probably goes on behind the scenes in GOP politics all the time, just without the gun play.
