demonstrates just how fragile and expensive Democracies can be.

Also, it's shut the GOP up. It has shock up the GOP and perhaps got their 'all-things Russia' mentality that the GOP has seemed to have since the arrival of tRump on the scene.

Now, it's amazing, the GOP, now that they've seen putin and Russia in action, invading a former part of the Russia federation, can't seem to back away from their former stance on Russia and they've been caught out in the rain, w/ their pants down. Even tRump is running backwards too. He looks awful funny and stupid in doing so, especially since his former remarks on putin being a great leader are engraved in stone.

Maybe, just maybe voters will remember the GOP and their ignorant, un-American support of Russia and putin. I hope so, for now that the bandages have been ripped off and all of us can see for ourselves what putin and his Russia are doing to Ukraine, reality has set in and it isn't pretty for the GOP and tRump.

At this point, the main GOP thrust is violence and immorality Walleye Mar 2022 #1
