When someone shows you who they are, believe them Maya Angelou
The self destruction of the GOP, especially the House, was very carefully crafted. And it was crafted lovingly by the foremost flim-flam man of all, The Cheeto Prophet. And he laid out the template for political success in the GOP. Say the lowest, most obnoxious things to the lowest, most racist, disgusting people in the party, and watch the campaign donations pour in.
And the lesson was learned. Right now you have a whole cadre of Trombie incumbents who followed the playbook. Say insane shit to a rabid Trombie base to get through the primaries in a safely gerrymandered district, and get elected. And then use your newfound face time to say even more insane shit. Because the more you do, the more appearances you can get on FUX News and OAN. And if you’re lucky enough to get your committee assignments stripped by your bullshit, then you can jet around the country setting up contacts. And watch the lovely long green flow into the coffers.
But there is a simple problem with this approach. With Trump’s social media ban, they have literally out Trumped Trump in the media. And while their nonsense is liquid gold when it comes to donations from the morons, the rest of the country finds them dangerously unhinged maniacs. And the Democrats need to capitalize on their hard fought infamy.
Thanks to their unbridled greed and camera fetish, they are now national figures. And they all live in pretty much safe gerrymandered districts. But remember this, the 2022 midterms won’t be decided by safe gerrymandered districts, but by 50-70 competitive and highly competitive districts out there. And the Democrats need to make these brainless trolls surrogate residents of every one of those districts. With advertising.
Here is an example. The ad will feature this rogue’s gallery, but those with an unflattering shot of the GOP incumbent. The regular letters will be the screen shot, and the italics will be the voice over;
- A picture of MTG holding a semi automatic weapon. Would you want to go to a school board meeting and see this woman sitting on the dais?
- Lauren Bobert smiling while holding a semi automatic weapon. She says she’s never seen a weapon she didn’t want to sleep with. Would you want her grading your 3rd grader’s homework?
- Video of Paul Gosar spewing filth at a far right rally. Would you want this man doing the accounting for your company, much less protecting your civil rights?
- Video of Ted Cruz giving Big Bird a ration of shit. Would you want this man defending you on a DUI charge, much voting to confirm a Supreme Court Nominee?
- Video of Kevin McCarthy paddle footing away from from responsibility from keeping his howler monkeys caged. Would you buy your next car from this man? How about having him running the House of Representatives?
- The ad ends with a picture of the GOP candidate. Welcome to today’s Republican party. You will be judged by the company you keep. Fade to black.
These ass clowns are the gift that just keeps on giving. By hiding cowering under the covers, shaking, moderates like McCarthy, McConnell, and the rest of the sane GOP incumbents have ceded the public face of the party to these ass gaskets. So why not give then their moment in the spotlight to shine.
