Cox's Curious Timing With Clownish Impeachment Caper
"When crazy meets stupid" doesn't even begin to tell the whole story. Even for a clown like Dan Cox, this is clownish behavior.
What could I possibly say about Delegate Dan Cox’s goofy impeachment attempt on Governor Larry Hogan that could possibly eclipse what Doug Mayer said?
“Dan Cox is what happens when crazy meets stupid. A person who believes that Mike Pence is a traitor and that the Chinese Communist Party has infiltrated Maryland state government is not a rational actor,” said Doug Mayer, a former Hogan spokesman who is now a senior adviser to the Republican gubernatorial candidate Kelly Schulz. “Unfortunately for his constituents, he’s also an extremely ineffective legislator who consistently fails to do anything remotely productive in service to them. Add today’s nonsense to his long list of failures.”
What I want to talk about is why Dan Cox waited so long to file this stupid resolution.
Now that you’ve read it, most of the “Impeachable” offenses that Cox refers to date back to the year 2020. Back when Dan Cox was one of the biggest supporters of the very same measures that Cox is referring to.
So let’s talk about the timing of this impeachment resolution dropping. Why did Dan Cox wait nearly two years to file a resolution about these impeachable offenses?
Let me posit three theories to you:
Quid Pro Quo with the Democrats: Remember how the Democrats paid for a push poll that tied Cox to Donald Trump’s endorsement of him? Remember how Cox then turned around and parrotted those very same talking points? Don’t you think it’s curious that a week after the poll is released that Cox drops this impeachment resolution that parrots many of the Democratic talking points about Larry Hogan? Don’t you think it’s possible that this was what Cox had to do in order to get the Democrats to pay for a poll he couldn’t afford.
Hey, I’m just asking questions.
Quid Pro Quo with the Trump Team: Remember how Dan Cox was endorsed by Donald Trump? Remember Larry Hogan earlier this week announced he was not running for Senate and pivoted toward a 2024 Presidential campaign? Remember how Dan Cox is a prolific Trump ass-kisser who would probably jump off a bridge if Trump told him to? Don’t you think it’s curious that days after Hogan says he won’t run for Senate that Cox drops this impeachment resolution that targets one of the biggest critics of Donald Trump now that he might be running for President against Trump? Don’t you think it’s possible that this was what Cox had to do to secure the Trump endorsement?
Hey, I’m just asking questions.
Dan Cox is a Terrible Candidate and is Going Down in Flames: Now that we had some fun, let’s get to the REAL reason. Dan Cox is going to get destroyed in the Republican primary and wants to fade the heat somehow to the campaign of Kelly Schulz. Cox thinks that this Hogan impeachment resolution will somehow hurt Schulz. Never mind all of the other external factors that would show why that won’t happen. Never mind the fact that Cox has no money or campaign organization to spread this message even if it were to work. Cox is desperate for something, anything, to stick to Kelly Schulz. All of his other knucklehead stuff won’t work, so know he’s going to pull this kinda crap.
It really gets back to what Mayer said: Dan Cox is not a rational actor. He is not somebody who understands politics, government, or common sense. He has no campaign apparatus to speak of, no ability to raise money, and no way to get his message out beyond whatever appearances on fourth-rate networks like OAN will give him.
Even the Democrats are not going to front something as boneheaded as this. Even for a clown like Cox, this is clownish behavior.
