1. John's right, but you would think that there was a point of diminishing returns with that ploy.

Wouldn't you?

7. He's what passes for a "moderate" in the GOP these days

If Gomer doesn't start calling for violence - and soon - they'll start calling him a RINO faster than he can say Podunk.

That's tantamount to career death in today's GOP.

11. Oh, hell no. That dumb fuck can't hold a candle to this new generation of whack-jobs. There's....

....born dumb like Louie, and maliciously, actively, enthusiastically stupid like Greene and Boebert.

6. She is not an anomaly. She is who their voters are now.

That's why they can't expel her. They NEED her crazy ass.

8. Nobody seems to remember how AOC was greeted in Congress

and she is on our side! AOC is nothing like that woman but my gawd, MTG must be loving all of the attention right now.

9. Like Trump she says what they believe or would like to say in public and dare not. She may not be

their archetype but she certainly sounds like their prophet. They dare not offend her kind. One wonders just who it was who told them not to?

IMO they are like the Centrist faction of the Democratic party was in believing that they must appeal to the so-called undecided voter or at least avoid offending them. The GOP is not that far from the Tea Party ideal IMO and cannot allow division or reflection upon how far to the Right they have moved or they will shatter the GOP unity myth altogether. As it is now they have no moral center and no genuine principles having surrendered those during the Obama years to the Tea Party faction. After 4 years of Trumpism they have nothing to stand on at all and cannot acknowledge it. Trumpism is their logical extreme. It is not an aberration of their philosophy but the purist from of its expression.

10. The GOP Doesn't Want to Govern

 

Hold power, certainly, but only in service to a kind of Bannonite Anarchy.

12. She is willfully ignorant, bigoted, and hateful. That doesn't make her clinically insane.

This is ableist.
