WASHINGTON — Are we prepared for our new Republican overlords?
Are we prepared for an empowered Marjorie Taylor Greene?
Are we prepared for a pumped-up, pistol-packing Lauren Boebert?
“What number of AR-15s do you assume Jesus would have had?” Boebert asked a crowd at a Christian marketing campaign occasion in June. I’m going with none, actually, however her reply was, “Effectively, he didn’t have sufficient to maintain his authorities from killing him.”
The Denver Post pleaded: “We beg voters in western and southern Colorado to not give Rep. Lauren Boebert their vote.”
The freshman consultant has lately been predicting fortunately that we’re in the long run instances, “the final of the final days.” If Lauren Boebert is in cost, we could need to be in the long run instances. I’m feeling not so Rapturous in regards to the prospect.
After which there’s the longer term first feminine president, Kari Lake, who lulls you into believing, along with her mellifluous voice, statements that appear to emanate from Lucifer. She’s harmful as a result of, like Donald Trump, she has actual abilities from her years in TV. And he or she actually believes these things, in contrast to Trump and Kevin McCarthy, who’re faking it.
As Cecily Robust stated on “Saturday Evening Reside” final weekend, embodying Lake, “If the folks of Arizona elect me, I’ll be sure that they by no means should vote ever once more.”
Talking of “Paradise Misplaced,” how about Ron DeSantis? The governor of Florida, who’s working for a second time period, is airing an advert that means that he was actually anointed by God to combat Democrats. God almighty, that’s some high-level endorsement.
A lot to our nationwide disgrace, it appears to be like like these over-the-top and method, method, method out-of-the mainstream Republicans — and the previously normie and now creepy Republicans who’ve bent the knee to the wackos out of political expediency — are going to be working the Home, perhaps the Senate and definitely some states, even perhaps some that Joe Biden received two years in the past.
And it appears to be like as if Kevin McCarthy will lastly notice his objective of turning into speaker, however when he speaks, will probably be Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jim Jordan and Lauren Boebert doing the spewing. Will probably be just like the satan growling via Linda Blair in “The Exorcist” — besides will probably be our heads spinning.
Welcome to a rogue’s gallery of loopy: Clay Higgins, who’s spouting conspiracy theories about Paul Pelosi, desires to run the Home Homeland Safety Committee; Paul Gosar, whose circle of relatives has begged Arizonans to eject him from Congress, shall be persona grata within the new majority.
In North Carolina, Bo Hines, a Republican candidate for the Home, desires community panels to resolve whether or not rape victims are in a position to get abortions or not. He’s constructing on Dr. Oz’s dictum that native politicians ought to assist make that decision. Even Oprah turned on her creation, Dr. Odd.
J.D. Vance, the Yale-educated, former Silicon Valley enterprise capitalist and creator of “Hillbilly Elegy,” who known as Trump “America’s Hitler” in 2016, earlier than saluting him to achieve public workplace, might be a part of the Senate in January. Speak about American Elegy.
Though he wrote in his greatest vendor that Yale Legislation College was his “dream college,” he now trashes the very system that birthed him. Final 12 months, he gave a speech titled “The Universities Are the Enemy”: His mother-in-law is a provost on the College of California San Diego.
It’s disturbing to think about Vance aspect by aspect with Herschel Walker. Walker was backed by Mitch McConnell, who countenanced an clearly troubled and flawed particular person even when it meant degrading the as soon as illustrious Senate chamber.
Total, there are practically 300 election deniers on the poll, however they are going to be all too pleased to just accept the outcomes in the event that they win.
Folks voting for these crazies assume they’re punishing Biden, Barack Obama and the Democrats. They’re actually punishing themselves.
These excessive Republicans don’t have a plan. Their solely concept is to get in, make hassle for President Biden, drag Hunter into the dock, begin a bunch of silly investigations, shut down the federal government, abandon Ukraine and maintain the debt restrict hostage.
Democrats are partly responsible. They haven’t defined how they plan to get a grip on the issues individuals are apprehensive about: crime and inflation. Voters weren’t listening to what they wanted to listen to from Biden, who felt morally obligated to speak in regards to the risk to democracy, regardless that that’s not what individuals are voting on.
Because it seems, a lady’s proper to regulate her physique has been overshadowed by uneasiness over security and financial safety.
To prime it off, Trump is promising a return. We’ll see if DeSantis actually is the chosen one. In Iowa on Thursday night time, Trump urged the gang to “crush the communists” on the poll field and stated that he was “very, very, very” near deciding to “do it once more.”
Trump, the trendy Pandora, launched the evil spirits swirling round us — racism, antisemitism, violence, hatred, conspiracy theories, and Trump mini-mes who must be nowhere close to the levers of energy.
Heaven assist us.
