    MAGA could be stopped tomorrow, if GOP leaders like McConnell and McCarthy had spines.

    McConnell could say "I will not give a dime to MAGA candidates," and they'd overwhelmingly lose. McCarthy similarly.

    That they won't say this, that they won't do this, and that their caucuses would revolt (largely out of fear of their voters), speaks volumes.

    They are either cowards or complicit. Result is the same.

    Imagine if they'd have voted to convict in either of the impeachments.

    The end stage of Lee Atwater's 'energize the base'. The base shrinks and gets more extreme, but you can't win elections without them.

    The very best the incumbent Rs can do now is hold the seats they have now and continue to vote in lockstep to thwart everything the Ds try to do. When the Ds win a substantial majority in the midterms the only thing left for the Rs will be to find something other than trmp to campaign on. They've lost their abortion dog-whistle and now they're losing their open borders dog-whistle. And they've instead bought a big new obstacle to try to overcome on both those fronts, and they've shown their hand too early.

    When they can't field a team that has sufficient numbers to continue to obstruct the Ds, or to push through their own agenda, their whole schtick is over. When the country sees the R minority powerless to do either, and the sweeping considerable changes the Ds are enacting, mcconnell and mcarthy are done. If the Ds have any instinct or cajones, they'll do what's necessary to remove the those Rs from Congress who were complicit in the insurrection, and begin to remove the trmp-crony partisans from the various federal judicial benches. Justice Thomas needs to go, at the least, and the Ds, with an unstoppable majority can make it happen. If the Ds are smart, R heads will start to roll.

    They have a belief that is different than mine. But overall they are content with the option that the Democrats present.

    I'm not sure that even Trump can stop the MAGA crowd now. Trump didn't invent them, he tapped into them.

    You're perhaps less clear than you intend.

    I like President Biden calling out "MAGA Republicans". Distinguishes them from those Republicans who still take our constitution seriously. Let's just not forget that McConnell and his ilk are more dangerously destructive than the clowns.

    By my count, there are exactly 2 of them in the House, and none at all in the Senate.

    I just read a news feed that claimed McConnell supported DeSantis' stunt.

    Don't look to him for change.

    McConnel is a scumbag. He keeps his voice down and has no twitter feed so he's not as conspicuous in his white supremacy, bigoted, misogynistic Nazism as some of the others.

    I like her, but she does turn me off when she tries to make her old boss look good.

    I think your signature needs amending. Something like:
