Put the blame on Mame, boys

Republicans are beginning to wean themselves from Trump

I’m back in the U.S.S.R.
You don’t know how lucky you are, boy

… That Georgia’s always on
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my mind

Kamala Harris is going to be very busy the next two years. The two Republican senators in Georgia were lackluster candidates. Kelly Loeffler had this vacant, Stepford wives stare. David Perdue skipped a debate? What kind of candidate skips a debate? Both were ethically challenged but they were crippled by a spectral wraith — Donald Trump.

The Republic will survive. Democrats will over-reach. In the Squad and Bernie (add Warnock and Ossof) they carry seeds of their own destruction. In the meantime, America will not go communist, we’ll keep our guns, we won’t be speaking Chinese — contrary to the choir of bulging neck veins. 

The Georgia results broke the back of Trumpism. His phone call to Brad Raffensperger was hunker-in-the-bunker bonkers. The President’s coattails are toxic. He under-performed all five Republican congressmen in Wisconsin, who won election without difficulty. Had he matched their performance, he would have won the state.

Georgia, we should note, elected a Republican legislature in November and until today had two Republican U.S. senators. Republicans in November flipped two Democratic seats to take 10 of its 14 House seats even as Trump lost the state for the first Republican defeat in 28 years. Two years ago Georgia elected a Republican governor and secretary of state. As for the crazies who would suspend the Constitution in order to install Donald Trump for four more years, they are our version of the Squad and their social justice warriors.  Tuesday 2021 is on Donald Trump. (Worth noting that Stacey Abrams said Georgia elections were crooked two years ago. The Democrat STILL has not conceded to Gov. Brian Kemp.)

Panic D.C.

This is the kind of nonsense that loses elections. You think a college-educated professional is going to vote for this agenda?

Trump pulled the temple down on his own head

The Morning Dispatch nails it: 

The GOP was hamstrung from fully making its best case — a Republican Senate as a check on the Biden administration — because acknowledging the reality of a Biden administration would likely provoke a vengeful Trump tweet. This weekend’s leaked call between the president and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger almost assuredly kept some suburban Biden voters from coming home and voting Republican.

We’ll watch the fun and games this afternoon as Congress certifies the Electoral College vote. Not surprised if a handful of Republican legislators blast Trump and his -isms. As for Trump’s Bitter Enders, they will not trust the fingers on their own hands unless Trump bestows his blessing. They will beclown themselves in the streets of Washington for the entertainment of WOW county suburbanites. At least, they will break no windows.

Some time late today (01-06-21), after all the palaver, Mike Pence will declare Biden/Harris the winner and go home to Indiana and say no more.


‘Trump threw it away’

“Elections are unfair. Unfairness is part of the fitness test … If Mr. Trump didn’t find a way to prevail in the world we actually live in, the blame starts with him. … He lost the pivotal electoral votes of Georgia, Arizona, and Wisconsin by fewer than 43,000 votes. … He absurdly over-supplied those voters with reasons to vote against him and he still almost won.” — Holman Jenkins in the Wall Street Journal.


Blaska’s Bottom LineIt will take some time for the Republican party to detoxify itself from Trump’s paranoid narcissism. But the man did show the way to a worker-oriented, traditional values political movement. The party’s task is to find someone with the common touch who isn’t batty. So far, Sen. Tom Cotton looks good. Maybe Ben Sasse or Nikki Haley. Like they say after hurricanes, we will rebuild.

As for the crazies who would suspend the Constitution in order to install Donald Trump for four more years, they are Republicans In Name Only.

Are YOU going to win or whine?

    We certainly need more winners and more tactical fighters. We also need more “loyal “ Republicans. For all Trump’s faults and there were far too many. His policies with the help of Republicans were better than any democrat has put forward since slick Willy!
    I’m not a forever Trumper but I do not understand Republicans who would get in bed with the likes of the current Democratic Party!
    Then again I look at what is happening in Dane county. There is plenty of blame to go around and it’s not all Trump’s doing. Hopefully we get a new and approved hybrid.

    Wrong…….. GA election losses stemmed from one simple issue….the Dec 23 claim of Trump for $2,000 checks for all. Polls rocketed up for the Dems, and sunk for Republicans. Trump’s ignorance of shouting for free money sealed the deal. FWIW, blacks vote as a block for Dim’s; always have, always will. Only a couple percent of them vote on some notion of ‘merit.’ Always race for them. Whites should do the same. The ignert minority from within will join illegal’s from Mexico, Puerto Rican’s and dope-smoking street people to sustain Dim rule forever. Yes, all made possible by ignert Donnell J. Trump. ————

It was a mostly Black crowd, and it was charged by a force made up of Washington police, US Park police, over 5,000 national guard troops and federal agencies like the bureau of prisons. An army helicopter swooped low over the heads of the protesters. Teargas, batons and horses were used to clear a block so that Donald Trump could stage a photo op outside a church across the road. A national guard commander later admitted there had been “excessive use of force”.

    I”m old enough to remember way, way, long ago in 2011 when Progressives occupied the Wisconsin statehouse for about two months. Maybe some here are too young to remember such ancient history, but it did happen. There are even articles about it on the web!

    But I don’t recall any objections by Progressives waaaaay back then in the long ago time of 2011 to such Occupy tactics, even though some of the union people were downright menacing to government folks just trying to do their jobs. Back then it was all “understandable frustration” and “listen to the people”, remember?

    It was foolish and dangerous then, and it’s foolish and dangerous now. The difference, of course, comes down to that old Leftist trope: “Who? Whom?”; it’s different when the Left does something.

    Progressives might want to reassess their objectives and methods, because this whole “threaten and intimidate everyone we don’t like” approach to politics seems to be causing a kind of reaction.

    Funniest thing; this “energy-n-outrage to spare” was incuriously missing while Portland, Seattle, Milwaukee, Philly, NYC, Freattle, Minneapolis, Kenosha, Miami, Louisville, Cleveland, Dallas, Atlanta, Raleigh, AND D.C., all burned from the FIERY But Mostly Peaceful Protests.

    But then again, per DementiaJoe (whom The Gotch quotes): “Antifa is an idea, not an organization” and Jerry ‘Nadless (also quoted): “Antifa’s a myth”.

    Despicable Lefties!!!

    Steve-O-in-NJ (fromanotherblogsite) and edited for space says:
    I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t shocked at the assault on the Capitol today, which ended up taking a life. I’d also be lying if I said I was all that shocked. Maybe it’s the lawyer in me, but I happen to believe that context matters, and I also happen to believe that the totality of the circumstances matters when judging something. The totality of the circumstances is that what happened today did not happen in a vacuum. I haven’t forgotten what happened this summer, featuring such highlights as the burning down of most of downtown Minneapolis, 100 nights of rioting and assaults in Portland, the attempt to secede from the United States and warlordism in Seattle, assaults by Molotov cocktail on police in New York and the assault on the White House, together with the destruction of a good chunk of this nation’s public art. Neither should anyone else have.

    I also haven’t forgotten that the recent election cycle, despite the mainstream media’s attempt to blow past it, was rife with problems, mostly due to capitalization on the current pandemic to introduce loose and unsecure mail-in balloting to benefit almost exclusively one party. Finally, I haven’t forgotten that those who want to examine these problems thoroughly have been denied the ability to make their case, as court after court dismisses them on procedural grounds before a record can be developed, or even to discuss them, as Big Tech appends discrediting labels or silences them outright.

    I seem to remember a few phrases getting thrown around this past summer, and one of them was “riots are the language of the unheard.” It means that if you feel disenfranchised, or unfairly treated, or like you are not being heard, then violence and destruction are justified. Congratulations on undermining every parent in the world, but, putting that aside, it’s both foolish and unfair to think that reasoning is reserved for only one side or one set of issues. If you didn’t think that reasoning and phraseology would leak across the aisle, then you don’t understand human nature. Leak across it did, and those who assembled today in Washington and decided to make a “mostly peaceful” demonstration no doubt had exactly that phrase and many others on their mind, together with the idea that turnabout is fair play, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and so on.

    The president sure as the devil doesn’t get a pass on this. When you know the forest is bone dry, you make damn sure you don’t create any sparks and you sure as hell don’t throw a match into it. The president threw a torch into it. That said, he’s really no different than the same people who whipped up all these other disturbances, just on a larger scale.

    That said, there is also only so much anger, frustration, and helplessness that people can feel before they throw all that to the side. That goes double if there is a perception, right or wrong, that the rules are being enforced unfairly, and the other side is getting away with things they should not be. It doubles again if there is a perception, right or wrong, that your side is being muzzled and your views do not matter. It doubles yet again if the other side mocks you, and we all know there is a lot of outright mockery out there.
    So, this is just one more symptom of the illness that has plagued this nation for about five years, since one side decided the other had no legitimacy and nothing to say because it said so. I don’t like that it came to this, but it did, and it’s likely to keep coming to this if that side keeps up the same attitude. I warned several times earlier this year if we didn’t stop this we were going to be headed for a point when the right was going to get fed up and strike back. Well, here we are.

    Oh, and if you didn’t speak up last summer when cities were getting burned and trashed, don’t speak up now.

      NO. Trump isn’t like everyone else. He’s the friggin’ president. Why condemn what happened this summer and then repeat it yourself in the same way. The country was lied to for 4 years. Covid is fake, Fauci is a fake, the news is fake, I won by hundreds of thousands of votes. Trump and the right wingers have lied to us over and over. Mexico will pay, China will pay, on and on. All BS. 60 court cases lost. Three recounts in Georgia. Why were “cities getting burned and trashed”? It was because black men were choked to death on video in the middle of a street. A black woman was shot in her bed. Trump’s ego and lies started this one today.

        Funniest thing, after what Lefty’s calling “One Of America’s Darkest Days,” D.C.’s Capitol Hill is in FAR better shape than after either of Hopeless Changey’s inaugurations, or any other LEFTY RALLY for that matter.

      There are nowhere near 75 million MAGA voters. A vast majority of people that voted for Trump are reasonable, thoughtful conservatives. The MAGA fringe had it’s chance and has shown their true colors. In my opinion, it will fade away and be filed in the history books for the extreme delusional movement it is.

    The permanently outraged and alarmed Lefties turn a broken window in the Senate and twenty yahoos into the Reichstag fire and the death of democracy. They project their four year hatred on 50% of their fellow citizens and believe them to be capable of sedition! treason! failure to rotate their tires. And that guy dressed up as a buffalo is a Trumper?
    ABob takes a victory lap as the Dems take the house/senate and presidency. What could possibly go wrong? The last time this happened we got ObamaCare “a big effin’ deal” as Po’Slo’Joe told us. Then the Dems lost 1182 elected seats from coast to coast. Whoops.
    And thanks for supposing I shed tears over the presidency ABob. I understand why you’d feel that. And yes, I’m disappointed that Trump didn’t (as yet) get four more years to add to his string of victories but given the s#@t show to come he maybe lucky. Also, as a rational grown up I don’t waste emotion on things I can’t control.
    You’ve got a senile leader and a corrupt incompetent VP who reads the obits every day. The Washington Party is owned by the big donors and lobbyists. They are geriatric, corrupt and thinking the people love them. The Dem/Rep model has been broken. The political toothpaste ain’t going back in that tube.
    My political foes will scare folks into killing our economy (note to self: move 401K to cash) BLM, the Squad and Defund the Police have all the Mojo the senior Lefties (VERY senior) have lost.
    Dear Old Joe, will you open the borders? Raise our taxes? Start an odd war or two? What about transgenders in bathrooms? Paris Accords? Planeloads of cash to Iran? How’s the dog? How’s your ankle? Where’s Hunter?
