The hollowness of Abbott's tweet doesn't make his "invasion" rhetoric any less toxic.
The midterms may be behind us, but judging by the Current's most-read stories this week, incendiary political rhetoric shows no sign of slowing.

Our most-visited story was an Assclown Alert column on Gov. Greg Abbott's troubling use of the word "invasion" to describe migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border to seek asylum.

Other frequently read stories this week centered around a right-wing militia planning a San Antonio rally to show its displeasure for adults dressing in drag and ethics questions about a syndication deal that tiresome and tireless bloviator U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz inked for his podcast.

There was also some upbeat news, however. Plenty of folks read up on a story about one-time San Antonio high school basketball star's success playing professionally in Mexico, and lots of you read up on details about the Alamo City's downtown New Year's Eve party.
