Oh Mama, I’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law Outlaw Styx
To provide proper context, and make later points easier to understand, lets go back to the most basic common denominator. If you listen to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — and who does? — the only reason that he dumped Liz Cheney from senior leadership in the GOP was her insistence in continuing to talk abut the past, the 2020 election and the insurrection, when McCarthy wanted the party united in a more positive, forward facing message for 2022. Namely victimhood, culture wars, and Biden bashing.
There are just s couple of small problems with all of this. Apparently, not only is Kevin McCarthy not a serious student of political history, he can’t even remember shit that happened in the last couple of years! Between McCarthy’s ouster of Cheney, and his messaging plan for 2022, there are rough seas ahead for the GOP.
Look, with the changing of demographics in this country, and racial migration weaving its web, white, suburban, GOP women have arisen as the single more critical swing vote in the country. They fucking hate Donald Trump!
White suburban women gave Trump a 40 seat spanking in the House in 2018, neutering the balance of his first term, and putting him under constant investigation. In 2020, they literally turfed Trump out after one term, while voting for more traditional GOP candidates down ballot, narrowing the Democrats House advantage.
Will wonders never cease? These suburban conservative white women identify firmly with Liz Cheney. And they are spitting mad right now. I saw three different white, conservative suburban women interviewed on two different news channels today, and both aligned themselves directly with Cheney, strong principled conservative women. They all blame McCarthy for sacrificing Cheney at the alter of Trump for her refusal to bow to the pudgy poltroon. And they are already making it clear that they feel that there is no place for them in this party any longer.
But it gets even worse. Because these women are not going to be sweet talked back into the tent by idiots like McCarthy. All three said that when they go into the booth next November, whey will be voting for candidates, and not parties. They put out quite a list of topics and issues they’ll be wanting to hear about, everything from education to healthcare, to infrastructure, to immigration.
This is the Democratic roadmap forward for 2022. These women aren’t fooling around, they’ve already spanked Trump twice, they won’t hesitate to spank the party itself for choosing Trump over them. And they want to talk programs and issues. Give ’em all they can handle! Because the GOP has nothing but Dr. Seuss and cancel culture. And it isn’t going to get any better as they burrow farther and farther up Trump’s ass.
