The Republican Party is destroying itself. Here are the results of a survey comparing the net favorability of several GOP congresspeople.

That’s right, Marjorie Taylor Green is the new congresscritter who is racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic, believes in QAnon and that the presidential election was stolen, blames the wildfires in California on Jewish laser satellites, and endangered and threatened other members of Congress. But her favorability is way higher than that of Liz Cheney, pretty much because Cheney voted to impeach Donald Trump.

And Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader of the House and a Trump supporter, is much more popular with Republicans than Mitch McConnell, who recently has been ambiguous about Trump’s impeachment.

The GOP is a sinking ship. Their leaders are now nut cases and liars.

    From the last panel: “How could people be so clueless?”

    The real question is how are they still as clueless as they were in 1861, while whinging on about basically the same damn thing again and again ever since then?

    I’m not so sure it’s a sign that the Publican Party is falling apart. I think it is more an indication that the whacko component of the party is doing quite well. It’s not that the leadership, as reflected by this poll, is shifting to the right on the whackometer. It’s that the base of the party is shifting that way and more than happy with the leadership. Doesn’t bode well for our American way of life.

    Are you saying Marjorie Taylor Green will possibly be the minority speaker of the house some day? God help us, a sign of the end of days, as if we havent had enough of those already.
