1. Little by little more sane people are seeing them for what they are and it means something. nt

2. So they've already gone off the deep end are they going to tie rocks to themselves and drown?

They are so far gone how low can they go and think they will appeal to regular people?

3. I mean, the alternative they are crowning now is DeSantis

which in a lot of way policy-wise, is a lot worst than TFG.

5. They face intellectual bankruptcy in all directions

There is no crazier part. There are no popular Republicans amongst the general public. Their brain trust is Ted Cruz, Rick Scott, DeSanctimonious, Chris Christie, and Lindsey Graham. Their radical caucus includes Boebert, MTG. Their Republican Governors are anti-abortion zealots. Their mouthpieces include Tucker, Ingraham, and Baier. Their supporters fly flags of hate.

Find me the popular pitch to America in there.

9. And the people who swallow this crap are largely north of 55.

So, yeah, good luck with that, GQP.

6. Probably, because they don't really have anything else.

They can't go moderate, because then there won't be enough difference between them and Dems. Their oligarchs want them to keep trying to normalize fascism and extremism. Luckily Gen Z and others see through it all. I think they're fucked in the long run. Fingers crossed they go the way of the Whigs soon.

7. Let em

The more nuttier they get, the easier it'll be to beat them. Lot of sane American's left that do not want that shit. So let them double down on the fascist rhetoric to kill their party off faster

8. If they get any more conservative they'll be walking around with robes and barbed

self-flagellation whips.

10. And did this after...

...a research analysis told them they needed to move towards the center. But the TEA Party nuts rejected it and thought they were absolved when Trump got elected. Now its come back to bite them in the ass....but they still have the Velveeta guy breathing down on them.

13. They actually didn't become more conservative. They became more radical.

And yes, they might double down on the crazy yet again.

15. The polarization has been getting steadily worse for 40 years.

I expect it to continue.
