We may have as much to fear now as had with the 30's German Nazi party.

Yes, I'm very worried as well.

OTOH, if McCarthy ousts her, it may cost Republicans even more moderate votes in the 2022 midterms, thus denying them the House majority that they crave.

I still remember that Trump's popularity plummeted to 29% after January 6.

Also, Republicans in Texas, in spite of retaining overwhelming control of that state, have been turning on each other with bizarre conspiracy claims of voter fraud that never happened.

Having lived through the 1960's, with its multiple (JFK, RFK, MLK, etc.) assassinations and violence, I feel even more fear now than I did then.

We're just too close to the abyss.

Never forget. :evil:

The G.O.P.’s patented brew of cancel culture, misogyny and cult of personality are all in play here. Cheney, on the other hand, will likely emerge liberated from any constraints and with an even bigger megaphone than she had before.

There's a vote scheduled for May 12, or so I understand. She survived a secret ballot before, but no details yet on how this next one will proceed.

How many voters will the GOP lose if they disown her? Only time will tell.

Could we be watching the GOP disintegrating right before our very eyes? If the former guy gets his Facebook account reinstated today, there is great danger ahead, IMHO.

Stay tuned and...

Never forget. :evil:
