From the outrageous antics of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert to the mind-boggling decision of Ted Cruz to pass a law that would make companies tell customers if their everyday appliances and devices have cameras and microphones in them, the GOP never ceases to amaze us.

Kennedy Jr.'s campaign dinner would end with Doug Dechert throwing his own natural gas?
