attacking our system is easier than defending it.

If we all vote IN EVERY ELECTION, we can stop this. Local, district, state, and federal -- don't sit even one out for the rest of your life, or you'll be part of the problem.

The way to beat an incumbent President is to do these two things:

1. Show that the President is doing a bad job
2. Show that you would do a better job.

If Republican messaging ends up being nothing but yelling about how the 2020 election was stolen, they can do neither.  It does not convince anyone who voted for Biden in 2020 to not vote for him, or whoever is the Democratic nominee, and vote for Trump this time around.      And it re-energizes the Biden vote if Trump is running on becoming dictator if he wins.

Then it becomes a matter on if the voter suppression laws put into place since 2020 do their job.

Child marriage, sundown towns, segregation, legalizing relationships between fathers and daughters, and fleecing the rubes.

Based on some reports they're not even succeeding at fleecing the rubes any more...

"As I have said many times before, the violence that occurred on Jan. 6 was sickening and wrong," he [Youngkin] said.

And, yet....

'The small crowd at the rally recited the Pledge of Allegiance to an American flag that reportedly was flown at Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally that led to the violent insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6."

These people will all be Youngkin supporters

The Republicans fell for Trump's bullshiat and their own lying narrative.

Trump pulled down 71 million votes in 2020, this is true; and now the GQP thinks they need to pander to that entire base to win again.

They forgot that their true base is the 65 million reliable voters who will vote for a Moldy Radish as long as there's an (R) after it. Trump only added about six million new voters to the count, about the same as any third-party candidate.

They won without him before. They can win without him and his slobbering followers again; because 98% of the (R) constituency are not Trump voters, they're Republican voters.

Their problem is that they let so many of Trump's drooling adherents into the party, none of them will "let" the GOP run the boring, solid establishment politician who could beat Biden in 2024, like Romney or even Jeb Bush. They have to pander to the 1% who follow the Screaming Yam, even if they all get syphilis.

Donald Trump couldn't win a "which one is Donald Trump " poll without help from both Russians and zero information voters.

Anyone backing him is admitting this.

"underscoring the former president's hold on the congressional GOP"

No, it doesn't do that.

It underscores something worse, something even more sinister and dangerous: how quickly TFG's tactics were normalized within the party. He and his whole clan could be abducted by extraterrestrials tonight, and it wouldn't put the evil back in Pandora's box.

Hmm, with enough rum I might consider the possibility of a little of one of both of the other two.

Well, if you keep quiet about that last one, or sell it as "not you, those other idiots", I think you've got a solid pitch that well over a third of the country will enthusiastically vote for.

I mean, I'm hardly supportive of either Romney or Jeb Bush. Romney is an evil putz, and the last thing we need is another scion of the Bush dynasty. BUT. Either of them would have been a dull, status-quo GOP president, done no worse than their predecessors, and likely made the transition to Biden (or hell, even Harris) that much easier. Certainly we wouldn't be hip-deep in dead Americans if Romney had been President, and we certainly wouldn't have had a year's worth of recounts and audits when he lost.
