1.26.24 Pizza Gaetz
Happy Friday! There are 283 days until the presidential election. Peter Navarro has a bad day, the real reason Gaetz hated McCarthy and Republicans really want a civil war.
Be advised: This newsletter uses profanity. When you read the opening note, you’ll be reminded why.
Note: Hey, Sexy Patriots, and welcome to Friday! Before we split for the weekend, we’d like to introduce you to a giant fuckhead. Sound good? Of course. Who doesn’t want to meet a giant fuckhead? Well here ya go…
Seriously, dude? We don’t know state Rep. Joel Kitchens. We’ve never met him. But we’re pretty sure this man has had lots and lots of sex with animals. Animals of all shapes and sizes. He was a young man when he realized that nobody wanted to have sex with him so he started humping dead squirrels that had been flattened by cars. Then he couldn’t stop. Every day he was having sex with dead squirrels. Sometime several times a day. He became a veterinarian as a cover for his fucked up desires. And even now, the man considers himself an amateur taxidermist because he just can’t stop stuffing dead animals.
Now is any of that true? Who knows? What we do know is anybody fucking stupid enough to say shit like that is also craven enough to have sex with dead animals. So today we’d like to suggest Rep. Kitchens give the dead squirrels a break and instead go fuck himself. Y’all have a blessed day.

Trump aide Peter Navarro might be going to prison. Yesterday Navarro was sentenced to four years in the clink for refusing to honor a subpoena from the Jan. 6 committee. Navarro has already filed a notice of appeal and he’s openly banking on the Supreme Court to save his gross bacon. Who knows what this broken and corrupt court will do, but we would sure like to see this little fucker rot.
So why did Matt Gaetz have it in for Kevin McCarthy? Because McCarthy had the House Ethics Committee looking into allegations that the venmo guy is a child rapist. And the entire House Republican caucus backed Gaetz. So here’s a question — HOW THE FUCK IS THIS NOT A BIGGER STORY?! SERIOUSLY! WHY DOESN’T THE NEW YORK TIMES GIVE A RAT’S ASS ABOUT THIS EXPLOSIVE HORRIFYING SHIT?!
Not so civil
So Fox News and the nation’s Republican governors are increasingly pushing for a civil war. That’s not hyperbole, folks. Shit is getting scary down in Texas as Gov. Greg Abbott continues to defy the Supreme Court and refuses to let federal border agents pass national guard troops to remove razor wire. This is just as fucked up as it sounds. Trump wants Americans to fight each other, and his party is happy to help him achieve that. And please keep in mind that while this is happening, Washington Republicans are refusing to pass any actual legislation to address the border. They prefer the spectacle. They prefer violence.
