IT'S THE FREEDOM PEOPLE'S RUSH-HOUR REENACTMENT CONVOY!
That COVID Convoy that was supposed to invade Washington during the Statue of the Union (but didn't) and then on Saturday (but didn't) came up with a cunning plan on Sunday: They would do two loops around the Beltway to "show them how large we are." ("Them" being the rest of us who think they're idiots, I guess.)
Afternoon reports indicate they're not doing so hot:
Pig Pen and the Rubber Duck now say they'll circle the Beltway every day until their demands are met. This inflated self of self-importance is fairly typical of rightwing "grassroots" movements: No one voted for them, few of us support their cause (which near as I can figure is to lift some non-existent "mandates"), but they act like a mighty sovereign power treating with the enemy.
I suppose the plan is to get as many donations via their many pledge pages as they can, then split with the proceeds. (That seems to be the MO of at least one of the leaders.) If they can make a nuisance of themselves before collapsing, so much the better -- because being a pain in the ass in the heart of conservatism anymore.
