In the Frog prince story, the frog’s spell is broken when the princess kisses the frog, and he transforms back into a prince. I have a theory about Republican voters. Many Republican voters are seeking a better life. And many of them get fooled by the lies of the GOP. They think they have found in people like Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ron DeSantis — their protectors — riding in on golden horses to change their lives and magically make them better.
Only it’s the frog prince in reverse. Because what many of these voters find out is that once elected, instead of protectors, they get — horror. They hold in their arms not solutions but nightmares. Their lives get worse, not better. And off in the distance, the wicked cackles of the grotesque can often be heard: “Fooled you.”
Luckily, some learn their lesson and become swing voters. Others do not. And that leads me to what is going on as we speak. As we speak, a republican lunatic is running around the (world?) making all sorts of promises. I speak of Kevin McCarthy.
Every day now, McCarthy is lying — lying and talking nonsense in his insane quest to become House speaker. On Tuesday, McCarthy went to the border and ordered Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas to step down.
The photos were almost comical. There was Kevin, standing in El Paso, Texas, trying his best to look tough and — sane. “I am calling on the secretary to resign,” an insane Kevin thundered. He looked SO out of place and SO uncomfortable it was almost funny in a dark and bleak sort of way.
Now, readers and friends, I ask you this. Do YOU think this is what the American people voted for? Do you think this is what they want? I’d venture to guess many do not even know who Mayorkus is.
That does not matter to McCarthy. He is promising and promising while literally threatening to impeach — everyone — everyone the alt-right doesn’t like. The American people want politicians in office who HELP them. That is what they vote on. And with every move he makes, Kevin shows no interest in helping the American people with jack shit.
I know you ask — then why do they keep voting for republicans. I say that’s in part because they forget. And the GOP is great at fake news and fake scare tactics.so it’s up to us to make sure they remember.
