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.)
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 Line: It 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.
Underestimate 75 MILLION MAGA voters at your own peril, fool
Underestimate a bunch of clueless morons who are more of a danger to themselves than anything? Didn’t think it was possible to underestimate trump supporters.
“Underestimate a bunch of clueless morons who are more of a danger to themselves than anything?”
You man “it’s an idea and a myth” Antifa were more of a danger to themselves than anything?
Anyone that posts blather of that sort will lie to you about other things, too.
And 10$ of million$ of arson, mayhem, looting, more deaths and assaults says otherwise.
Like Steve O says, anyone that didn’t condemn the Lefties Gone Wild FIERY But Mostly Peaceful Protests this past summer, including DementiaJoe, et al, is ethically estopped from making ANY comment on this at all!
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.
Despicably trashy Lefties!!
They left the capital in better shape??? You have lost your mind.
Sheesh!! Reading for comprehension must not be a requirement for the challenging field of donut manufacture.
Sigh! Once again, for those who are so breathtakingly imbecilic that they can’t grasp rudimentary English:
“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.
Oh boy, oh boy nice smorgasbord you got here Squire.
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?
Oi, enough with the popcorn already.

Funny to watch all the trump rats jumping ship. Trying to save what’s left of their reputations? I bet Melania has her divorce lawyer on speed-dial right now.

From the inimitable Jack Marshall, ESQ.:
First and foremost, anyone who did not condemn all of the George Floyd/Jacob Blake/Breonna Taylor/ Black Lives Matters rioting that took place this summer and fall is ethically estopped from criticizing this episode.
‘Course, Lefty & ethics are like oil-n-water.
