When Nebraska lost to Georgia Southern after also losing to Northwestern and almost to South Dakota, the Athletic Director had to fire him. The loss to Georgia Southern was impossible to justify and the hard task had to be undertaken. The Cornhuskers now stand at 3-7 on a four-game losing streak, and their season is lost, but keeping Scott Frost as head coach was only going to cause more damage.
The GOP has no Political Director, but the last time a party leader headed into an election expecting to gain 30-40 seats in the House and a couple in the Senate and failed dismally (Newt Gingrich), he had the common decency to resign because of the damage he had done and would continue to do if he had stayed.
Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy have failed the GOP, and arguably the nation. They are the primary architects of this disaster and if they had a shred of honor or decency would, at the very least, step down from their leadership roles. They should resign their seats in disgrace. They should never be allowed to direct the party again. Of course, they won’t do either of these things because, to them, they succeeded. To call these midterms a success is an insult to anyone who supports the GOP.Published in
