One thing that the GOP has always prided itself on was being the tough party – an image that they’ve largely tried to keep up and used successfully in past campaigns – particularly by trying to portray Democrats as weak and effete by contrast. Like just about everything else they claim, the exact opposite is true. Time and again, they’ve acted poorly in foreign interests – yielding or even cozying up to foreign dictators well before Donald Trump arrived on the scene, ignoring the possibility of a 9/11 attack before it happened, and actually making a pandemic worse by gutting the international task force used to monitor them.

It’s therefore especially noteworthy then, that Mark Levin alongside Rep. Jim Jordan, is calling on Republicans to “get tough like Democrats.” Like your typical right-wing pundit, Levin is also basically a fixer for the GOP, and he’s largely projecting. He’s sad that Republicans aren’t able to pull off colossal gerrymandering in states that are much less conservative than their legislatures would lead you to believe and Jordan is along for the ride because he’s anxious about how his current district is being redrawn. However, this rhetoric is a gift for us. No one wants to be on the side of the whiny losers – whatever the letter after their name happens to be. For too long, the bad guys have been getting away with it all – and now in 2022, with fairer maps, the Democrats have the opportunity to right that wrong.

   

We can have representation that better reflects the people in each of those districts or we can have the same bitter losers that won when they got to pick their voters. Republicans only whine like Levin and Jordan do when they can’t do much of anything else – and they know we’re in a position where we can. That’s why it’s important to put the work in this year more than ever – don’t just show up to vote – volunteer and drive up registration in congressional districts where we can win.
