If there was a day of celebration, 4/4/2023 was it. This was the day Donald Trump turned himself in, was briefly under arrest, and gave a horrible, pathetic speech that I’m sure to put many to sleep.

It was also the day we won Wisconsin. And THAT, friends and readers, is the subject of this article. Many of the far-right Wisconsin Court members have been salivating about abortion. They hoped to keep an abortion ban in place. But there was a monkey wrench thrown into the equation.

Our gal won. And now, for the first time in many years, the Wisconsin supreme court will have a liberal majority. How sweet it is! And that leads me to Maga because Maga is losing their minds.

Not in the usual way. Not with anger and not with threats. I had the opportunity to observe Maga in their purest form the other night — on a Maga message board. Many of the posters that I saw appeared defeated. There was a lot of doom and gloom and a ton of hopelessness. But amid all that, there was something new.

A gradual realization. A moment of reckoning, so to speak: “I’m a Republican. And I admit you’re right. The abortion issue won’t hold in the long run for Republicans. We shouldn’t have outlawed abortion.”

I saw — friends and readers — these messages all over the place. But what was so shocking to me was what I didn’t see. Few among them were complaining that we stole an election. Instead, what I saw was lament. All over this message board, I saw an awakening, if you will — that the GOP really might be over — at least for now.

“It’s all about abortions.”

“The GOP has zero chance of winning WI, MI, PA in 2024 because of the abortion obsession.”

Wow. Finally, after all these years, Maga said something that made sense. Who’d have thought they had it in them?

And to them, I have but one word.

DUH!

Maga, if you only realize this NOW, you should be worried.

The fact is abortion is not a fly-by-night issue. It’s here to stay. And we have the GOP to thank for that.

The Republicans went too far. The Republicans could not contain their innermost misogyny and went too far. And Wisconsin gave them a big “up yours.”

So yes, Maga — at least the Maga on this message board — are on the right track with this hypothesis. But the question is — what to do about it. Nothing.

The GOP is far too bogged down in women-hating to change course now. They need to lose more elections, and MAYBE they’ll get it. They’re kind of slow. It takes a while with them.

Our victory in Wisconsin was about many things but make no mistake, abortion is top of the list. Thank you, Wisconsin, for seeing the wrong thing and doing the right thing. This is one of the Democratic party’s most significant victories in a while.
