Supported By Your Base is Okay. Taken-Over By Your Base, Not So Much
The Republican Party is at a crossroad and they know it. Whether anything positive will come from knowing that or not is still undecided. They have a rattlesnake at arm’s length, held behind the head and thrashing its tail. The longer they hold, the heavier it gets and they’re terrified it may bite if they try to throw it.
Spoiler alert: It probably will.
So what now?
Well, the what now? is where all the intrigue is going on. There’s a who if not Trump? factor headed by either Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. Probably Ted because Lindsey is too normal and Rand too certifiably nuts.
The trouble with who if not Trump? is the fact that the party cannot win without Trump as candidate. There is absolutely no other reason for Senate Republicans to pre-determine that they will fail to impeach. None.
My opinion is that there is not a single republican in the party that isn’t appalled that he won the election and shaking with fear of what lies in the future. Not one supported him…
