Our Republican betters in the US Senate are finally saying the quiet part out loud. If all of us stinky America First people don’t abandon our infatuation with the Bad Orange Man immediately, they’re probably going to switch parties and become Democrats, or just stop being Senators altogether.
If we don’t knock it off with our insurrections and our desire for clean elections, peace and prosperity for our families, they’re just going to pick up their toys and leave.
We should welcome this long-awaited transparency, because it means that the days of these RINOs are now officially numbered.
The Hill did a series of interviews with Republican Senators about how very upset they are with their own voter base. The article is titled, “GOP senators rattled by radical conservative populism.”
If you think that the Republicans you vote to send to the US Senate are supposed to represent your interests, you are the radical to these people. If you’ve always kind of suspected that many Republican Senators hate their own voters, this should make it crystal clear.
Listen to the contempt dripping from Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s (R-AK) lips as she talks about Republican voters:
“I’m having more ‘rational Republicans’ coming up to me and saying, ‘I just don’t know how long I can stay in this party.’ Now our party is becoming known as a group of kind of extremist, populist over-the-top [people] where no one is taking us seriously anymore.”
In other words, somebody at the cocktail party in Manhattan thinks that Lisa Murkowski’s Republican voters are icky, and that’s embarrassing for Lisa.
One Republican Senator who is butt-hurt because of the Orange Bad Man spoke anonymously to The Hill, saying, “There are an astonishing number of people in my state who believe the election was stolen.”
Really? If an astonishing number of people believe that, then maybe you sort of had a duty to look into it, don’t you think?
Another anonymous coward told The Hill, “There are people who surprise me — I’m surprised they have those views. It’s amazing to me the number of people, the kind of people who think the election was stolen. I don’t want to use this word but it’s not just a ‘redneck’ thing. It’s people in business, the president of a bank, a doctor.”
Okay, do you think he’s just messing with us? I live in Southern California, and I have never met a new person in the last two-and-a-half years who doesn’t believe the election was stolen.
Sen. John Thune (R-SD), who is always a reliable Democrat vote in the Senate when it counts, told The Hill, “Are we going to get rid of the Justice Department? No. I think defunding is a really bad idea.”
He added, “That stuff comes and goes and it’s built around personalities.”
Sen. John Cornyn, the gun-grabber who mysteriously never gets primaried out in the great state of Texas, said, “It concerns me that people lose faith in their institutions, but this has been a long story throughout our history. It’s nothing new although it’s troubling.”
Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans are a threat to our democracy!
Sen. Todd Young (R-IN) is very, very upset with Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) bringing articles of impeachment against his friend—that very nice man Joe Biden who is totally not an alleged creepy pedophile. He also has the ick because Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is trying to get President Trump’s fake impeachments expunged.
“I fear that snap impeachments will become the norm, and they mustn’t.”
They mustn’t, Sally! They mustn’t!
If your presumably male GOP Senator talks like he’s one of the characters in the movie Little Women, he’s probably not going to be able to stand up to Chuck Schumer. Just sayin’.
These people are so blind and stupid that they don’t realize they are the reason we elected Big Orange. They have ignored our populist concerns for so long that electing The Chosen Orange One was our only method of trying to break through the fog, so that they would finally start listening to us.
If your banker and your doctor and successful business owners are telling you the election was stolen, maybe you ought to listen to them instead of calling us a bunch of redneck conspiracy theorists.
And if you GOP Senators want to leave the party because you find it repugnant to advance our interests, then by all means—LEAVE!
