AZ GOPer Who Supported Sketchy Election Audit Now Says It 'Makes Us Look Like Idiots'

Arizona state Sen. Paul Boyer (R) apparently has regrets about backing his fellow GOP senators’ push for a shady audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election ballots to boost ex-President Donald Trump and his allies’ bogus conspiracy theories about voter fraud.

“It makes us look like idiots,” Boyer told the New York Times in an interview published on Sunday. “Looking back, I didn’t think it would be this ridiculous. It’s embarrassing to be a state senator at this point.”

1. Nope. Your candidates, your beliefs, your conduct, your ignorance made you look like idiots.

This was just final confirmation of your idiocy, for those who hadn't been paying attention.

it should also be embarrassing for all those who voted for you, for trump, and all the other republicans working hard to destroy our Democracy, all the fools who bought the line that Biden and Democrats are "socialists"...

More amazing is the fact that people cannot see through republicans, your corruption and idiocy is so transparent.

33. I hope he can drag some of his former fellow conspirators with him.

It's nice to see that at least some are not beyond redemption, and can change their minds. A great pity that he and others didn't see this coming months ago.

I view both him and Liz Cheney - and probably some others, but wo knows any more? - in the same way as PJ O'Rourke viewed Hillary in 2016. Despite being a dyed-in-the-wool conservative (MAYBE not a regressive...I don't follow him at all), he said he was going to vote for her because "She may be wrong about everything, but at least she's wrong within normal parameters."

Please remember the preceding paragraph are not my thoughts; I just like the concept of the final sentence. It's much the way I think about some of those that I used to despise, but could at least be reasoned with. William Buckley, for example.

39. In other words, it's even more ridiculous than he had expected it to be.

The Arizona Republican Party should cut it's losses here and send these Cyber Ninja hustlers on their way.
I wonder how the voters in Arizona feel about this mess? It can't be good for the Republican Party image in the state.
Each day this farce continues will cause them to look more and more like a circus clown act.

40. What is this?

A rare moment of introspective thinking and self judgment from a 'R' type person?

Wow!

Maybe the Trump era induced fog of irrationality is starting to lift slowly, and sunlight is getting into some 'R' brains?
