Doctor GOP’s Monster

I admit that I don’t really know how this movie will turn out. Will it have a happy ending? Will it have any ending at all? Will it result in the destruction of the Republican party (as we know it), or the destruction of America (at least our dream of America)? Did our dream become a nightmare? Who is really to blame besides us? Stay tuned!

UPDATE: It could be worse:

How did the two most despicable GOP candidates end up as the only two possible nominees? What kind of choice is it between a racist, authoritarian huckster, and a complete whack-job evangelical who nobody who has ever worked with him can stand?

What’s even more bizarre is the Republicans are so afraid of a President Trump, they would rather nominate Cruz, who has absolutely no chance of winning the general election. The GOP would rather lose the presidential election than see it won by Trump (even though Trump is supposedly a Republican).

Sadly, Trump has a better chance of winning the presidency simply because he will absolutely say anything (including blatant lies) to get elected. Cruz is a complete ideologue who thinks he has god on his side. Trump has no ideology other than winning, so he will certainly pivot and say whatever he thinks the voters want to hear, including denying he ever said any of those racist or sexist things.

    Hmm, interesting. He does have the right hairdo and we know he’s got that enormous schvanschtiker, no wonder he so popular with the ladies!

    And what was that fangy thing peeking through Cruz’s lip at the last debate?×165.jpg

    With Christie playing Igor now (“yes Master!”) the horror show is complete.

    Methinks it’s more the fact that Trump would not be beholden to the GOP donor class.

    Carter, I wasn’t clear. I was pointing out that Trump is more electable than Cruz because he will say or do anything to win.

    Your explanation is a good one for why the GOP is afraid of Trump. But it is still ironic they would much rather lose the presidency than have Trump elected president.

    If trump wins he could destroy the republican party for ever. Perhaps they think HRC winning this time and a better republican candidate contesting in 2020 may be a better alternative than Trump winning now and the republican party being destroyed for the next 20 years as a result of the calamity that follows.

    Jonah, like Nixon destroyed the Republican party forever by committing crimes and resigning in disgrace? Or Reagan did with the whole Iran-Contra scandal (not to mention running drugs)? Or Dubya did by lying us into two stupid and costly wars and destroying the economy? 🙁

    I’m off to the polls in an hour and I still haven’t decided. What to do, what to do? Do I hold my nose and opt for a Republican ballot and vote for Trump, who I think is easier to beat than Cruz or do I opt for a Democratic ballot and still not know who to vote for. I like them both, for different reasons. Husband is voting for Trump, but I just don’t know yet. I have not had this much trouble making a political choice EVER!

    IK, do you think it may have been different in the Nixon and Reagan years, when the GOP (arguably) had actual arguments to make and ideas to govern? Not that they were good ideas, but they were ideas. Now, the GOP thrives on mostly vitriol and the ability to say “no” while selling the idea that they are a bulwark against evil liberal death panels. If Trump (or Cruz) wins, they’ll reasonably be expected to pass and then uphold laws. I honestly think that responsibility would crush them…

    …first us, but eventually them, too.

    IK< I think there's a difference between fear of what could happen and what actually happens. Chalk the latter to the gullibility of the american people.
