Backbone

Once again, Republicans in Congress are too chickenshit to stand up to a delusional autocrat who is hell-bent on destroying their own party.

Instead, they are resorting to threatening violence. Or when Trump was exposed for bullying the Georgia Secretary of State to “find” additional votes to throw the election, Senator David Perdue attacked the Sec of State for recording the call (note that in Georgia, it is completely legal to record a phone call).

At the state level, Republicans are going completely rogue. In Pennsylvania, the GOP controlled state Senate refused to seat a new Democratic Senator, even though the state supreme court had ruled that the election was valid and the state had already certified the results.

When the (Democratic) Lt. Governor objected to this power play, the Senate removed him and replaced him with a Republican. Making this even worse, the Lt. Governor had already reached an agreement with the GOP to have the winner of the election seated provisionally, and if the courts ruled against him, he would step down. But the Republicans broke this agreement and refused to seat him anyway.

They aren’t a political party anymore. They are mobsters, obeying the illegal orders of their boss.
