When one comes up with an idiotic statement, it may be pure idiocy. When two or more cough up non-sequiturs, it is a tactic or talking point designed to detract from the real issue. But then, that is the Republican mode. They need to distract from the fact they do no work.
Hice, Grothman and Gosar are ripe for removal. Georgia, Wisconsin and Texas take note.
