On how low the Republican Party has sunk in its identity

I’m really struck by how thoroughly the Republican Party is now identified with the worst humanity has to offer. It’s almost a reflexive reaction by now to feel the party represents the worst.

Nobody questions it, they just make excuses. “Yeah, but the trains run on time now.” “Yeah, but the economy’s doing great.” “Yeah, but you have to admit immigration IS a problem.” “Yeah, but what about the Clintons?” “Yeah, but we’ve been winning elections so far.”

«The party that chanted “lock her up!” over lax email protocols is now busy shrugging off allegations of sexual assault, repeated acts of perjury, and decades of tax evasion and fraud.

That’s the self-styled “law and order” party, of course.»
