MSNBC is hardly the place to go for sane, measured political commentary, and there was certainly none on tap in a conversation that took place on Chuck Todd’s ridiculous incarnation of Meet the Press.

Frank Figliuzzi, a former FBI flack who once suggested a “bi-partisan” commission pick presidential candidates instead of voters, said to Todd that the government needs to start arresting Republican Congressional Members because they represent the “command and control element” of whatever non-existent bogeyman they are freaking out about at this moment.

Figliuzzi, naturally, received no pushback or perplexed looks at his insane suggestion.

There was no real “coup” attempt nor did the trespassers do much of anything inside the building except yell and walk around. Again, for the social media censors out there, I’m not saying what happened wasn’t bad. It was harmful garbage perpetrated by a bunch of conspiracy-minded morons. Yet, it is obvious that if more damage wanted to be caused, it could have been.
