Suddenly I think Merrick Garland is doing a great job.

I remember hearing that in 2016. Nothing happened.

The fundamental nature of conservatives* is to line up behind the leader and do as they are told**. Occasionally they will have brutal fights over who that leader is, but once it is settled, the losers dutifully fall back in line.

*Cheney is the rare exception.

**Also they viscerally hate anybody who does not do the same.

Bullshiat. The same thing was said when he initially ran. And look at tgings now *gestures at everything* and tell me tge Derpublicans are disappearing.

They have gotten their agenda in place with a Supreme Court fine with LYING IN THE MAJORITY OPINION and willing to use even the flimsiest of rationale to support the doublethink agenda of the conderpative (read as "fascist") party.

Shiat, they are set to let legislatures in several states override popular vote, effectively eliminating the chance for Democrats to be the majority at the state or federal levels ever again. And the Supreme Court has shown that they're fine with Gerrymandering if it helps their own.

The Derpublican party is the minority by registered voters. Yet, they are inches away from instituting minority rule.

Fark yourself, you disingenuous shill. Take that false doomsaying, shove it up your ass, and hobble yoyr way bacl to hell.

If by destroyed, he meant a permanent 6-3 SCOTUS majority that will effectively rule the nation for the foreseeable future, he was correct.

Her only objection to Trump is that he's not in her clique and she wouldn't have power with him in charge. What Trump does, she's fine with, she just wants at least a little control and power for herself.

If you believe she's right you should do everything in your power to get Trump nominated.

I still want some reporter to ask Lindsey Graham one question on live TV:

"When and why did your opinion on Donald Trump change?"

I'm not a lawyer, but I was a journalist in a former life. And there are so many easy questions that anyone could ask of countless Republicans -- if they had the balls.

We need someone with the questioning skills of a journalist and a lawyer doing discovery and cross-examination.

And that is why I will never forgive ANYONE who voted for TFG in 2016.

To this day, I want to smack them and shout, "What the fark were you thinking?!"

Some of them retort, "You don't understand my reasoning!"

My response? "I also don't care why a German voted for Hitler. All I care about is that they voted for Hitler. You stupid fark."

On the othe hand...

Liz Cheney strikes the same combative tone that her father did over more than four decades in the national spotlight: She wants lower taxes, less regulation, more ground troops in the Middle East and vows to go "toe to toe" with Hillary Clinton if the Democrat wins the presidency.

Yet Cheney is also an unabashed supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whose ideological bearings run directly against much of what Richard B. Cheney stood for as a congressman, defense secretary and vice president.

"Right now there is no question that Trump is the better choice," Liz Cheney, 51, a former State Department official who is running for Wyoming's lone seat in the House, said Friday evening.

Sitting on a street corner near her parents' high school, Cheney explained that she had substantive differences with Trump - particularly on foreign policy - but that she is ready to roll the dice with the first-time politician.

"He's somebody who will probably shake things up, and so I think the presidency matters hugely," she said in an hour-long interview, almost 300 miles from her home outside Jackson, a resort town over the Teton mountains.

I said all during TFG's term, and all during the last election cycle, the damage done won't take another President's term, it won't take years to fix. It'll take generations. Our children, our grandchildren, our great-grandchildren will be living with this damage.

My first thought.  All Trump did to the Republican Party was to give them permission to say the quiet parts out loud.  He encouraged everyone to be their worst selves, and boy, did they ever.  They stopped pretending they're not Nazis.  And they got more votes than any Republican Party in history, because evil, hateful, pigf*ck-ignorant yahoos finally found a Party that agreed with them and celebrated them.  And everyone who "votes with their wallet" just went along with it all, because, hey - I got mine, f*ck you.

If Trump gets the nomination in 2024, and if the Democrats don't find a way to beat him, we are completely f*cked.

The only reason she is doing any of this is because she thinks that she is hereditary entitled to the Republican party.

"'I think it's a much graver constitutional threat if a president can engage in these kinds of activities and, you know, the majority of the president's party looks away or we as a country decide, you know, we're not actually going to take our constitutional obligations seriously. I think that's a much more serious threat.'"

I'm not sure the GOP can survive if he ISN'T the party's 2024 nominee. Certainly, the USA won't survive if he's the nominee, and especially so if he's actually elected.

Yeah, but Biden didn't fix it in his first two years in office, so doesn't that mean that Trump should automatically get another chance*?  Because it seems like you're just trying to make things easier on our great-great-grandchildren, and honestly, those snowflakes need to toughen up.

Sorry Liz, you are soooo close to getting it. The Republican party won't survive if Trump isn't your nominee for president. Trump will burn the RNC to the ground out of spite if he loses in the primaries.
