Not it
 
2021-10-31 11:00:02 PM  
Not mine, I hope.

Actually, wait, yeah I'll take it. Nobody else try to save them. It's on my list of things to do and I'll get around to it whenever.

The GQP cannot be saved.

Good.
 
2021-11-01 12:23:00 AM  
Why?
 
2021-11-01 1:04:58 AM  
Rupert Murdoch, late 90s. And arguably Colin Powell's spawn in the FCC around the same time.  Past that point this was inevitable and irreversible.

Begs the question of if the GOP is needed in the first place.

I assure you, it is not.
 
2021-11-01 2:13:24 AM  
Don't look at me, I gave up on those assholes in the early aughts.

Save them?

Perhaps their souls can find redemption, after several millennia of atonement in some dark afterlife.  But there's no saving them on this side of the grave.

I'd rather save the country and world from the GOP. But that would be partisan and also socialism.
 
2021-11-01 6:51:20 AM  
Not me. And the party has driven out a lot of the folks who might have been interested in doing so. it's a cesspit of corruption and greed and has really applied itself to attracting the worst people in the world, and promoting them as heroes. And the sh*ttier the people they attract, the worse it gets. Maybe the better question is how do we save the country from sh*tty people?

GOP spelled backwards is POG.
 
2021-11-01 7:13:09 AM  
If they were interested in being saved....I'm sure that someone would come along eventually. But, they are not interested in being saved.
 
2021-11-01 7:13:53 AM  
What part is worth saving?
 
2021-11-01 7:14:51 AM  
Are they not the Party of Personal Responsibility? *snerk* They can be true to their claimed virtues and save themselves.

The delusion that we have a 2 party system.

Robert Oppenheimer. He was all "we had to destroy the village in order to save it."

Are they in trouble?  Because electorally-speaking, they seem to be hanging on quite well.  Much to the detriment of society, unfortunately.

They're like a gsw victim with half their head blown off but still agonally breathing. They're gone but you still have to work them. Sad. Low energy.
 
2021-11-01 7:19:36 AM  
I love how it's somehow Kinzinger & Cheney claiming that they have to "save" the GOP. Both of them are friggin' corporate chickenhawks, disciples of the PNAC assholes. They're not there to "save" shiat - they're representing the old guard neoconservatives, the few who believe that money should rule the planet.

You're looking at two deposed nobles hoping to "revive the old ways." It doesn't matter if it's PNAC chickenhawks or Stormfront fascists running the GOP - it's still broken, because it still doesn't have humans leading it. Just two different groups of assholes, squabbling over the Loc-Nar.

Nuclear Monk: Are they in trouble?  Because electorally-speaking, they seem to be hanging on quite well.  Much to the detriment of society, unfortunately.


Only through rigging the system.

They are two parties in one with a shared goal of preserving whites-only society. The first is the sinister darkroom dealers and the second are the rubes (including candidates/elected officials) that make all the noise to distract from the former.

Shrinking. And not worth saving.

They're rigging elections and cheating just to break even. The GOP don't have widespread popular support, and they know it.

Save them? In their moment of triumph?
 
2021-11-01 7:27:45 AM  
Who, oh who, will save The Party of Personal Responsibility?
 
2021-11-01 7:29:47 AM  
Democrats, surely, somehow are responsible.
 
2021-11-01 7:30:49 AM  
Welp. There goes the family values, the moral majority, the job creators, and the chosen ones. To you I bid a fond "fark you and good riddance"...
 
2021-11-01 7:30:56 AM  
Nobody?
 
2021-11-01 7:31:08 AM  
Save them in the sense of getting them to not be horrible human beings or save them in the sense that the party will still be electable?

If it's the latter, I can assure you that there are enough idiots in America to keep the party thriving into the future.

CarnySaur: GOP spelled backwards is POG.


And GQP spelled backwards, when pronounced, sounds like someone being strangled.

I'll do it.

Give me control of all the money and the passwords to the things.
 
2021-11-01 7:36:09 AM  
Fta: "That's about the same number of people who have live in Los Angeles and San Francisco combined,..."

Article englishes real gud.

And yeah, the GQP have relied on a BS narrative that keeps their base in a perpetual state of rage which is useful when you are trying to get voters to polls every cycle.

An unfortunate side effect of this is the base has gone off the freaking rails.

It has radicalized and devolved into a cult.

The party is now afraid of the batshiat base it created and can only think to lie larger and louder in order to court them and not get on their shiatlist.

What do?

No freaking clue but a more robust narrative from the Dems would not be amiss.

It is every American's responsibility.

The only way to save them is to utterly destroy them, to burn them to the ground and salt the ashes.

Save the GOP? You're not supposed to help the monster in the horror movie.  Have none of you seen The Ring?

Whose?  Same as it ever was: The Nazis, the wealthy, and the press.

And yet people still vote for them.
People don't change - they just find a new way to lie.
