How can it be that the Rs are now widely using talking points from Russian Intel?

Is it that the Russians have so taken over the NRA that the Republicans know that large source of money for them will dry up if they don't spew the GRU line?

It boggles the mind!

3. Simple. Rs are in power and want to remain so

The saying goes, "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely". The Rs are desperate to maintain their grip on power. Any means in service of that end is fine, even spouting Russian propaganda or the wildest conspiracy theory.

9. Putin is the best current example of a leader turning a nation into an autocracy

The Republicans want the same and they are following a leader who has successfully destroyed free elections, eliminated all other avenues for opposition, brutally and publicly eliminated strong opponents, aligned himself with a nationalist religion, and oppressed ethnic minorities.

For a republican, what's not to love about all this?

4. The Republican Party is now self-stooging...

 

Russian Stooges used to be produced as a function of communist sympathy, now they are fascist sympathizers. And let's face it, the Republicans are the stoogiest party going right now.

8. Because they don't care anymore.

They really don't. There's no line they won't cross, no bottom too low, there's nothing sacred to them anymore. All they care about is owning the libs and triggering the snowflakes. They don't care who they stomp on in their quest for absolute power. It's truly sickening. Right now I'm convinced that you really could get away with murder if you have an R next to your name.

11. It's just another form of outsourcing to them

They let foreigners do their work, then make every other American pay and pay and pay.
