Back away from the tin foil — and the bamboo
While Maricopa County ferrets out the imported bamboo ballots that “defeated” Donald Trump (wink! wink!), hope builds among the RITOS (Republicans in Trump Only) that the fake presidency of Uncle Joe Biden will be cast into the furnaces of hell like the anti-Popes of the 15th Century. If Arizona comes up short, Gen. Mike Flynn will lead the “Minny-mar” coup. Either way, the one true President will be reinstated like the Bourbon kings of post-Napoleon France. Mike Pence, you’ve been warned!
No noose is good news
Dang me, dang me. They ought to take a rope and … Pence says he and Trump may never ‘See eye to eye’ on Capitol riot. “As I said that night, January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States of America,” Pence told attendees at the Lincoln-Reagan Dinner in Manchester NH.
The New York Times reported earlier this week that former President Trump “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated [to the presidency] by August.”
It isn’t just [the Times] — National Review’s Charlie Cooke is hearing the same thing.
“I can attest, from speaking to an array of different sources, that Donald Trump does indeed believe quite genuinely that he — along with former senators David Perdue and Martha McSally — will be ‘reinstated’ to office this summer after ‘audits’ of the 2020 elections in Arizona, Georgia, and a handful of other states have been completed,” he writes.
“The scale of Trump’s delusion is quite startling. This is not merely an eccentric interpretation of the facts or an interesting foible, nor is it an irrelevant example of anguished post-presidency chatter. It is a rejection of reality, a rejection of law, and, ultimately, a rejection of the entire system of American government. There is no Reinstatement Clause within the United States Constitution. Hell, there is nothing even approximating a Reinstatement Clause within the United States Constitution.”
→ Good news, true Patriots. Allen West has resigned as chairman of the Republican party in Texas. The guy calling on Texas to secede from the U.S. (Was tried before, if history serves.) This is a step toward a healthy and vibrant GOP. Baby steps, people.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Can we thank the man for what he’s done (up to January 6) and move the hell on. Kevin? Mitch? Lindsay? Ron? Vicki? We’ll take the party’s temperature at Saturday’s 2nd District caucus in Madison and the state convention June 26 in Wisconsin Dells. As for August, we’re all booked up.
