His concrete overshoes sink Republicans.
Chuck Schumer says hello! If this were The Godfather trilogy, Republicans are Frankie Five Angels, gagging on the floor in the tavern. Donald Trump was the Rosato brother with the unlucky coin. Just when we try to get him out, Sore Loser Man is back in!
What does it tell you that Democrats, cynics that they are, spent big money to push Trump election deniers over the finish line in Republican primaries? Their ploy worked! Each and every one of them lost in the general election! What does it tell you that Raphael Warnock is making Trump the issue in the Georgia run-off? What does it tell you than Ivanka Trump announced — immediately following her father’s anticlimactic announcement 11-15-22 — that she was sitting this one out?
If you’re one of the dwindling number of RITOs (also spelled RIOT — Republicans In Only Trump), it tells you nothing you are willing to hear. Trump is in the olive oil business.
Which is why Democrats are giving pre-holiday Thanksgiving for the return of the gift that keeps on taking. It’s the Kari Lake snow job effect. Trump’s pick for governor of Arizona, “had all the sparkling charisma that Donald Trump’s other favorite candidates lacked,” the Wall Street Journal observes:
She loved telling off journalists. She called 2020 “a corrupt, stolen election,” and she repeated that line to the bitter end. As Mr. Trump bragged in a phone call captured on tape: “If they say, ‘How is your family?’ she says, ‘The election was rigged and stolen.’”
But she lost, 49.6% to 50.4%. … As a reminder of how winnable Arizona should be for Republicans, Gov. Doug Ducey was re-elected in 2018 by 14 points.

With just 720 days to go before the next election, a Florida retiree made the surprise announcement that he was running for President.
Avid golfer Donald J. Trump kicked things off at Mar-a-Lago, his resort and classified-documents library. Trump, famous for gold-plated lobbies and for firing people on reality television, will be 78 in 2024. His cholesterol levels are unknown, but his favorite food is a charred steak with ketchup.
Trump also served as the 45th president.— New York Post 11/16-22.
Well before Wisconsin's Republican primary in August, Republican business man and influencer John Torinus wrote: “Trump: ‘kiss of death’ for Michels? I thought that Michels would be smart enough to avoid being super-glued to Trump.”
Why Tim Michels sleeps with the fishes
CNN exit polls tell the same sad story why Tim Michels lost Wisconsin and Ron Johnson barely survived. Wisconsin was fairly Trump friendly in the last national election:
2020 presidential vote
|Biden 47%||Trump 45%||Another candidate 3%||Did not vote 3%|
But election denialism hurt Republicans:
Do you think Biden legitimately won in 2020?
|Yes 60%||No 36%|
Confident your state’s elections are fair/accurate?
|Confident 81%||Not confident 17%|
And Trump himself was toxic:
View of Donald Trump
|Favorable 40%||Unfavorable 58%|
Not just in Wisconsin but by a solid majority of the midterm voters nationally (by a 19-point margin of 58% to 39%) “and in every state polled,” National Review marvels. “Even places such as Texas (52% disapproval 45% approval), Ohio,and North Carolina that he won two years ago.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Who did attend Florida Man’s announcement at his stolen documents library?— just one former office holder: scandalous Madison Cawthorn, who lost his North Carolina primary. Oh, and also Roger Stone, the ambassador to the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, and the My Pillow Guy. Expect them to be named capos in the second term of the Godfather.
