1. Sippi Cupp was a big time GOP, Gun Waving, and the Iraq war was a good idea person not too long ago.

Even if this video is anti republican and anti Trump I don't believe a word she says.

5. She says, in short, that the Republican party is the party of corruption,

where awful people go to absolve each other of their crimes.

But you don't believe a word she says?

6. I think the opinions of former Republicans are very worthwhile.

S.E. is a nationally syndicated columnist, author and commentator. She is author of the book “Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media’s Attack on Christianity” and co-author of the book “Why You’re Wrong About the Right.” She is a CNN contributor.

Her most recent articles:
* Good riddance to Madison Cawthorn
* You don’t have to be pro-choice to oppose overturning Roe
* Marjorie Taylor Greene is a menace to decency
* When a ruthless Russian dictator is a big fan, you’re definitely doing it wrong
* Conservatism is dead in this GOP
Etc... all as a columnist for the Chicago Sun Times

9. Not until they show a Democratic Party registration and vote Democratic in 2 election cycles

would I believe any Republican.

Look at her book titles. Her books tell you who she is. Believe that before believing her late-to-reality articles.

10. That's harsh.

You don’t believe that people can evolve or change their opinions?

I found her previous incarnation to be highly obnoxious. However, she has now denounced the Republican Party. Give her a little credit.

14. If she has changed because she has "seen the light" good on her then "me so bad." Warning Image

However if she has flopped on where she stands on the issues because that is where the money is now
then fuck her. Besides she was a big time w supporter who stole two elections ... FL 2000 & OH
2004, started a war so Dick Cheney could make bank, blew off 80 warnings about 9-11, let the
industry run mine safety .... see Big Branch Mine explosion, let bin Laden walk at Tora Bora, outed
a CIA agent which no doubt resulted in God only knows how many deaths, started ISIS and the
massive human suffering and refugee crisis, turned the EPA & Dept. of Interior over to the polluters,
allowed for the deaths of over 1 million wild run salmon in CA (see dick cheney), started unneeded
wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, and ... and yet Sippy Cup pushed his (really Cheney's) bullshit & lies 24/7.

Does this little boy whose family was fleeing from ISIS get a "do over?"

Speaking their language just might do it.

11. Ummm, Ms. Cupp?

Here’s the problem: the GOP of today IS conservatism. Limited government is either never defined or is defined as preventing things that conservatives don’t want. Conservatives want government when THEY want it and it must spring fully formed from the brow of Zeus. The deficit is defined as unimportant when conservatives are in power and the end of the world when Democrats are in power.

13. Yeah, they've just gone a bit beyond the point where she's comfortable...

...with them. When they were the Tea Party--when they were being transported from protest to protest on Koch-brothers-funded tour buses--and acted like more "normal" reactionaries, dressed up in tricorner hats and Pilgrim outfits, they were fine. Once they got their own nutty ideas and started making Q websites (after they got booted from Reddit) and talking about how Da Jooz Be Controlin' Da World, that was a bridge too far.

I'm willing to cut Sippy Cupp some slack here; I believe she is disturbed by these reactionary and fascist movements. But she doesn't seem to get that what happened is that the GOP lost control of its base. The constant push toward one-upmanship on the part of everyone from their candidates to radio talkers led directly to this. How could she not see this coming nearly two decades ago with Michael Savage et al?

16. I don't know...

The foundations were laid in the late ‘40’s and early ‘50’s by Kirk, Strauss and, to borrow from Laugh-in, FBuckley. Many say Goldwater wouldn’t be welcome in today’s GOP nor would Reagan. I say that that is bullshit. Sure, Goldwater didn’t like the religionists but that didn’t stop him from opposing civil rights. Reagan was so fucking tone-deaf to civil rights as well as AIDS and gays as to be considered stupid. No, the Republican Party started down this path 70+ years ago. What has happened is both a direct result of simplistic solutions and sloganeering, a willingness to turn a blind eye to hatred and absolute fear over shifting demographics. Fear sells. They have sold it so well that they are starting to reap the whirlwind. Unfortunately, the rest of us are also caught in that whirlwind.
