5. Watergate proportions?...no

a cleansing Noah's ark flood...saving the best of us and drowning you, trump, and the whole GOP... paraphrasing the late Johnny Nash...we can see clearly now...

14. I think it will more like cleaning the Augean stables

Hercules did it by re-routing two rivers to wash out the shit. Maybe Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can come up with a method to do the same!

4. I don't understand the worry.

All Republicans have to do is the Reagan Playbook.

1. Let one election cycle have a purge of republicans in the WH and Congress.
2. Wait four years. The American public has a short memory.
3. Run the worst candidate as a Republican for the next election.
4. Successfully execute an October Surprise.
5. Take back the Government as your candidate and down-the-ballot candidates return to D.C.

10. I get the feeling that's the plan...

along with their stew of voter suppression techniques.

Maybe as early as 2022. They'll be running around yelling that the Bloated Blowfish was never one of them and probably a Democrat. A false flag which will be flown at least once on the scroller at Fox News.

I'm hoping the crew we install now is savvy enough to not be caught flat footed again. No more Iran-Contras.

19. One of the first things Biden/Harris have to do...

Along with TRUE election reform and a return to fairness and truth in the “news” Americans are being spoon fed (looking at YOU, Fox News and hate radio), is set up a commission led by the new DOJ head to investigate the abuses and corruption of the last 4 years. Clinton had to deal with the Whitewater farce for 6 years, let’s start casting light on the GOP cockroaches infesting the nation. No more “looking forward, not back” bs. Look where that thinking got us. That and “reaching out” to scumbags like McConnell and Graham. Let’s start locking up criminals and traitors.

20. So true. We can't sit back and relax

after the Biden inauguration. Too many people did that in 2008, relieved that the Bush years were over. We were not prepared in 2010. Can't let them bounce back with the equivalent of another tea party.

16. Oh, the plan is worse than that

The likely plan is to do as much possible damage now, including blocking any more COVID relief bills, and let their mad king run rampant, leaving Biden a huge mess.

Next, bitch loudly that Biden isn't fixing things fast enough, and (rightfully so, sadly) count on the short-term-memory American public to fall for that trick, and put Republicans back in charge of Congress in 2022.

Use that position to make sure Biden can do practically nothing in the last two years of his term.

Grab presidency, and keep Congress, in 2024.

24. The short memory

The short memory is of those that dont feel it. Vast numbers of trumpers dont work, never did. If they do work, they get paid UNDER the table. They dont pay any taxes, they get tax refunds because they, like trump, know how to cheat the system and get Democratic Hard Earn tax dollars paid to them. What trumpers that do work, their grandppapy was a Republican turdknuckle and that how they were raised.

So the southern Bo Duke strikes up the Tebel flags, "rebel/trump" to show how ignorant their education is....

Voters are coming to that realization.

26. What is scary is that...

1) there are still voters out there who have realized nothing, and 2) there are voters who will never understand this and will allow the rethugs to actually fail it completely. (I will NOT be surprised if/when the current administration pulls a 'reverse plea' to his supporter nations for aid in 'controlling the country' because he doesn't want to lose. We have done it before many times, so I will not be shocked if he wants it done for him.)

They would be measuring a number of DC offices for drapes right now.

17. He's right about the bloodbath, delusional as hell about how much a COVID relief bill...

...would help Republicans on election day. It will help them some, but not nearly enough to save Trump or get Republicans the House.

Maybe, just maybe, enough to help Republicans keep the Senate (which might be Cruz's only real interest).

18. Agreed. If McConnell thinks Trump is toast he wouldn't pass another relief bill

Because it would have the appearance of helping Biden. Once cares act relief ends, we will see delinquencies on loans go up. The Republicans will make Biden's administration own that.
