I always knew the Republican Party would rip itself to pieces after Trump lost. I never expected the Republican Party would rip itself to pieces over a debate about whether Republicans should bother to vote in a Senate runoff. But nonetheless, here we are.
On Wednesday, Trump election lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell urged Republican voters in Georgia not to vote in the Senate runoff races, because they’re “rigged” anyway. On Thursday, Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw began attacking Wood. Then Michelle Malkin, a far right pundit, began attacking Crewshaw.
What do these people have in common? They’re all pieces of crap, for one thing. But they’re also all supposed to be on the same Republican team. Yet partly because Donald Trump us providing no leadership and offering nothing but incoherent tweets about the Georgia runoff races, everyone else on the Republican side is merely fighting like cats and dogs.
Just as the kids don’t like it when mommy and daddy are fighting with each other, Republican voters don’t like it when their own Republican leaders are fighting with each other this brazenly just a month out from an election. They like it even less when half of them are telling them not to even bother voting. This represents a real opportunity for the Democrats to take control of the Senate.
