When people fight on Twitter, we all lose.

The problem here is that it's becoming quantitatively evident that traditional conservative "values" and policies don't work.  So in reality, though we consider Cheney or Kinziger on the correct side of these squabbles, their extinction will come long before the liars.  And the reason for that is that the liars will never lose votes from the people who like being lied to.

People who don't like being lied to will eventually come around to the truth and vote that way.

Well, they're both in Congress.

But I'm having trouble dumbing myself down enough to follow the fight.

If by "some rando" you mean "Republican Representative" then yes.

Problem: people will double down on a comfortable lie. Or if the truth will make them look dumb for having believed it

It's not that they like being lied to so much as DEMAND it.

Absent the burn, announcing "we have the votes!" followed by the vote failing, and then holding the vote three months later and it succeeding doesn't make the person who said "actually you don't" the first time look like the idiot in that situation.

McCarthy can whip most of his caucus to dump Cheney. But what he can't do is take the House based on Trump's "base" votes. There just aren't enough of them.

My gut tells me this is all going to blow up in the GOP, particularly McCarthy's, faces over the long term.

I'm going to blame the lack of coffee for initially thinking "not aging well" was only about Gaetz's propensity for putting his foot in his mouth, not also referencing the fact that he seems to be attracted to high schoolers.

The problem is that we just kind of happen to be in the same building as them, so to speak, and when it (continues) to blow up in their face there will be collateral damage.

The delusions will persist, as they are comforting to the base and there has been no real consequence, as they slide ever further to the right while pointing to everything left of them on the political spectrum as the Devil's communism.

Drumpf may be gone, but the circumstances and events that brought him to power are still alive and well within the GOP.

Fun fact: your liver will metabolize ethyl alcohol before breaking down ethylene glycol into its toxic metabolites. At some point homeless people in our area figured out that if they claimed to have ingested antifreeze, the ER would put them on an ethanol IV drip. The doctors eventually got wise and started alternative treatments. Now all they have to deal with is people ripping open the hand sanitizer dispensers and eating the gel (which I'm told is pretty nasty tasting). Alcohol is a hell of a drug.

I, for one, cannot wait for that psychotic oompa-loompa to disappear off the political landscape. 

Napalm should do the trick.

Can it blow up in the GOP's faces in the short term too? I'm so farking tired of waiting.

This is exactly right.  Wherever the GOP gets their polling data from, it clearly indicates that lying has more support.

I always wonder if I could start down that path and profit from it.  Probably not.

Not necessarily. Unless you think mid-terms as short term.

She's not gonna shut up about things, so this doesn't make McCarthy's headache go away.

I noticed the vote was apparently a voice vote. McCarthy doesn't want to put all of his caucus on record with a stance on it. He also doesn't even want anyone to know how much, if any support Cheney has. That ought to be a pretty good indicator that he knows this is a dumb play just to appease Trump and has enormous risk both to him and the party.

THIS.

Over time, the SNR of the internet has gone to hell.  But the total volume of quality signal has gone through the roof.
