44. i think their strategy is to use ugliness to make everyone tune out except the Trumpy base

like they're trying to turn our processes of governance into something akin to a WWE event. like Trump at his rallies, or the raging douchebag patrols at the impeachment hearings. make it ugly enough and you rarefy the viewership. they want to get everyone to tune out, except those who are really into raging douchebaggery. i think they're counting on people not tuning back in for the part where, as you suggest, their many weaknesses are exposed.

whatever support they lose in "undecideds" i think they intend to recover by reducing involvement from opposition and "moderates". so the enthusiastically-participating democratic core becomes mostly or entirely their base, since they're the ones interested in partaking of the WWE atmosphere.

i don't know if this strategy will work a second time, but they -- and everyone else -- knows it can work at least once, especially with a little help from Russia.
