We really are sliding into minority rule in this country.
«In Congress, and at the grassroots, the dominance of Donald Trump over the party is more or less total.»
It’s not Trump that’s dominating the party, it’s Trump VOTERS, and there’s a difference.
«What we’re seeing isn’t a civil war. It’s a purge, and there’s every reason to believe it will work.»
«Yes, there are those within the party who will resist: Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, blue state governors like Larry Hogan, former GOP Chair Michael Steele, who has been effectively divorced from the party for years. As nominal Republicans, they will win a significant share of coverage in the New York Times, and on CNN and MSNBC. But the idea that they represent one side of a major split within the Republican Party is a fantasy.
As a body, that party has embraced notions about the political process that would have seemed the stuff of parody a decade ago.»
