    I lost faith in 96, nothing I’ve seen since has changed my mind.

    It’s hard to feel sorry for a populace that voted for a dead guy and someone with the IQ of a salad bar.

    Eventually someone at the RNC will figure out that their message is so bad that “Not the republican!” is beating them in election after election.

    I can’t say that I’m not excited to see the upcoming battle between Senator Mrs. Fetterman and DNC, Inc. for that Pennsylvania Senate seat.

    I’m all for Democrats running a full slate of DeLuca like candidates.

    Dead men do no harm.

    I think it was Pat Paulsen’s widow that said, of Pat’s run for President after he passed away, it’s the kind of thinking from inside the box that this country needs more of.

    WOW! Another Red Wave. Is that broadcaster code for hype and bullsh*t? Or is this something Republicans invented for not actually having to step up and DO SOMETHING?

    I stopped being a Republican when I realized that being Republican didn’t mean being Conservative or standing for the Constitution. Yeah, there’s talk of hearings and inquiries, and finding answers and all that crap, but don’t hold your breath. Vote counts continue because places like Arizona can’t seem to find the owner’s manual for their voting machines and tabulators so they can adjust the user settings.

    And the 2024 campaigns are beginning. What JOY! three dozen or so of the worst possible Democrat candidates against a dozen or so Republicans, and countless Greeners, Right-wing Fascists, Left-wing Anarchists, New Worlders and Old Timers.

    I already have a headache.

    Meanwhile, we have two more years of Gropin’ Joe and Giggles Haris, more walk-back press conferences after Joe goes off script again. More non-existent border, more crime, more inflation, more “I have a pen and a telephone” b.s. flowing hip-deep from the White House. Unless….

    Unless the Republicans step away from the TV cameras, decline invitations to be on the Talking Heads shows, roll up their sleeves, and start doing the hard work of running this country. Stop spending money we don’t have. Stop Sleepy Joe’s Presidency by Proclamation, stop the handouts and freebies. Start drilling wherever the folks who know these things think there’s oil. Start digging coal everywhere they can find it. Open the doors to new oil refineries and NUCLEAR power plants. Stop this foolishness about solar and wind power until they can be made efficient enough to power medium to large cities 24 hours per day, every day and night, summer and winter. Stop government subsidies for everything except Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, and Military healthcare and homelessness.

    Two years ago, we were THE Big Dog on this planet. We worked hard for the title. That’s what we do. Two years from now, we can be right back up there again, but it’s going to mean that every Republican grows a pair and does the hard work we are sending them to Washington to do.

    I’m hoping for miracles here, but I’m not so old as to expect much.

    I gather that the election of The Dead Guy was a more or less deliberate move by the voters to force a special election, rather that elect the opposing (Libertarian, IIRC) candidate.

    Not stupid. You use the tools you have.

    But MikeAZ, if the Republicans did that, they wouldn’t get invited to those great parties the Cool Kids throw.

    o-blo-me got “re-elected” in 2012 with an economy in the crapper. joe and the dims get re-elected with the entire nation in the crapper.
    Meanwhile the republican “leadership” is hard at work meeting & greeting with their corporate masters – Hey! For those turds, life is good.
    Their motto, like Alfred E. Newman used to say – “What me worry?”
