Mark Shields: "There is no Republican Party...It's a cult." He went there! Good!

SEE VIDEO: Start at 4 minutes in.

The Republican Party IS indeed a cult. It's dead and gone.

Our job is to focus on the bread and butter issues, starting with healthcare, which got us elected. And CONTROL THE MESSAGE. Frame the R's as "The Trump Cult" that is totally beholden to Trump, the rich, and the powerful, and who say 'to hell with everyone else.' They are totally corrupt and unable to govern."

We should do smart oversight, but we must NOT go down the rabbit hold of a rush to impeachment unless the Mueller investigation reveals very serious legal violations that will finally move some R's in the House and Senate to support it, and only if the public will support it too. We need to prove we can GOVERN and do what the large majority of Americans want. The American people want THEIR needs taken care of.

And Pelosi and Schumer have the experience and discipline and this is what they plan to do.

If we do our job on healthcare and the economy, rule the message and agenda on those, and define Trump and the Republicans, then we can wipe them off the map in 2020.

1. I think that gives republicans too much credit. They're not a cult. They're a criminal enterprise.

Where all of them play, and all of them get paid, and the rest of us are the ones paying.

3. The deplorables are the cult.

The criminals are in politics and business.

2. I've been hearing other people referring to it as a cult also

John Dean said some people see him as a religious figure.

4. "Cult" doesn't work. It's cool now, as in a cult movie.

THESE WORK:

Criminal
Corrupt
Criminal Trump-supporting party
Rogue party
The lost party
The party that has lost its moral compass

etc.

5. They have been in this mode for a half-century

It was during Ronald Reagan's 1966 California gubernatorial campaign he started preaching about the GOP's 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican.
