Siege on US Capitol comes as no surprise 

By Ron Jackson

Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Actually, not really. One would have to be dumber than Gomer Pyle ever pretended to be to have been surprised or shocked by the Wednesday afternoon siege of the U.S. Capitol by a bunch of misled thugs. Elections have consequences but should never rise to the extent of what occurred.

Although it was disheartening and disappointing to watch, it was not one of our darkest moments. It was more amusing than anything else. After all, it is not as if a bunch of disgruntled, well-informed patriots occupied the U.S. Capitol steps and knelt during the national anthem. Now that would have been surprising.
