The RNC Really Stepped In It by Censuring Cheney and Kinzinger

My first question: What about the feces?

I don’t mean figuratively, as in “Wow, the Republican National Committee really stepped in [fill in the blank]” or other colorful idioms.

I mean it literally, what about the poop?

I should back up. The RNC, the greatest agglomeration of hacks ever seen outside a lumberjack competition, voted to censure Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for serving on the select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. This was dumb enough. But the stated case for censuring them is that talking about January 6 divides Republicans and takes the focus off attacking Democrats. Except the censure itself made January 6 the dominant story for days, forcing Republican politicians to talk about the very thing they don’t want to talk about.
