    The worlds tiniest violin is playing in my heart for Republican candidates trying to thread that needle. Indeed I suspect the violin is subatomic in size.Report

    Yeah, the party needs to come down hard on the stolen crowd, and it doesn’t want to, so this will continue and it’s their own sh*t they are swimming in.Report

      It cannot and will not because, they either:

      1. Quake in fear of being primaried from the right over this stuff;

      2. Believe this stuff themselves; and/or

      3. Believe that it reflects a “deeper truth” that any election of a Democratic politician is inherently illegitimate because the people that vote Democratic do not deserve the right to vote generally.Report

    I don’t find this situation amusing at all. The Republicans and the rightist media spent decades tellng lies big and small to their listeners. We are now dealing with tens of millions of deluded citizens who do thinks like attempt a Freikorp coup or kill their kids because of Qanon. This isn’t going to end well at all.Report

  6. The Republicans continue to believe that they can ride the whirlwind.Report

    This presents an interesting dilemma. Much as with Democrats and the “gimme gimme gimme” voters, Republican candidates can either insincerely pander to these people, or they can lose their primaries to true believers. A fish may rot from the head down, but democracy rots from the voters up.Report

    Elections are routinely “stolen”. There’s always some voter fraud. There is always “voter irregularities”. Whatever. Tell me how, substantially having Donald in the office vs Biden would make a material difference to the vast majority of Americans. Trump didn’t do much in his four years, certainly not much that he campaigned for. There is very little difference between the two. The us is still doing 90% of what it was doing before the election.Report

  9. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop… ever,

    And there was no way to predict that Trump would lead to this.Report
