From the right (one minute):

Liz Cheney’s new ad.

From the left (I doubt you’ll be able to stop after the first four minutes):

The announced speaker line-up at an upcoming Trump event.

Including his son, one of his National Security Advisors, one of his Attorneys General, and two unabashed fans of Adolf Hitler.  You will not believe your eyes or that this is happening.

Yet it is.

The current leader of the Republican Party . . . who really did keep a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bedside and whose dad really was detained in the summer of 1927 at a KKK rally (that summer, the Klan had an estimated 5 million members) and who told his chief of staff that Hitler “did a lot of good things” . . . vows retribution if re-elected.

So here’s an idea: how about 5 Republicans from states like New York and California . . . who in private “hate Trump with a passion,” as Tucker Carlson did . . . how about they switch parties?

That would shift the Speaker’s gavel from Kevin McCarthy, who’s having a rough go, to Hakeem Jeffries, who could get a lot done for the American people.

In running as Democrats, those 5 party-switchers might stand a better chance in 2024 than they now do, not least because they would be widely acknowledged to have saved the country from default and gridlock.

And even if these acts of heroism did cost them their seats (which they are in serious jeopardy of losing anyway), how does that compare — on the heroism scale — with losing your legs in service of your country, as Senator Tammy Duckworth did, or suffering five years’ torture in North Vietnam, as John McCain did?

The only Republican Congressman the blue team would not accept is newly indicted George Santos.

I love how CNN summarizes it:

During his brief time in office, Santos has been accused of breaking campaign finance laws, violating federal conflict of interest laws, stealing cash meant for an Iraq War veteran’s dying dog, masterminding a credit card fraud scheme and lying about where he went to school and worked.

Why was that not enough to cause his Republican colleagues to expel him?

Because they are the party of Trump — the master liar, cheater, and con man.

For those of us who respected the once-Grand Old Party, it’s both sad and frightening to see.
