Ron DeSantis is going on the road to help Republicans campaign, supporting Republican senate and gubernatorial candidates in Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Rep. Liz Cheney during a recent interview that she “would find it very difficult” to support Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida if he were the 2024 Republican presidential nominee.
“I think that Ron DeSantis has lined himself up almost entirely with Donald Trump, and I think that’s very dangerous,” she told the newspaper.
On the other hand…
“They love this country, they do their homework and they are people that are trying to do the right thing for the country,” she said of Sherrill, Houlahan and Slotkin, who are all Democrats.
She is definitely branding herself for her next position as CNN consultant and head of a faux-patriotic PAC, with no-show positions on companies where her father’s cronies work.
She’ll be fine, don’t worry.

In the grips of monomania, psychotic people perseverate on their object of interest. They talk about their enthusiasm incessantly and believe, wrongly, that everyone else is similarly inclined. America’s establishment, left and right, and the media, are obsessed with Donald J. Trump. Trump’s tweets, his pretend press releases, his real ones, doesn’t matter. He occupies every neuron and inflames them. With each sweaty proclamation, the monomaniacs sound increasingly unhinged. Dick Cheney called Donald Trump the greatest threat to humanity and America and all that is good and decent. And also, he’s proud of his daughter because she staked her whole life and career on stopping a politician who is not currently in office and isn’t on the ballot. Vote for the obsessive! She cares!

These corporatist Republicans don’t care about jobs shipped overseas or lost homes or IRS audits strangely focused on a certain segment of the population. And they don’t care that 87,000 newly minted IRS soldiers for the roid-rage fueled federal government will attack their ideological enemies with zealous relish — and Americans are paying this vast army for the pleasure of this persecution.
John McCain complained about the hobbits. Current Senators refer to the mostly peaceful January 6th protesters as “terrorists” while ignoring actual communist terrorists.
It isn’t about Donald J. Trump. It’s about you.
Democrats have a major advantage over Republicans in that Democrat voters are not yet convinced that their party hates them.Published in
