If Jonah is upset with the state of the Republican Party these days, he has no one but himself and the rest of the frauds in Washington to blame. They spent 2016 trying to bring Donald Trump down and then the next four years trying to trip up President Trump.
A Republican Congress refused to repeal and replace Obamacare, as they promised they would.
A Republican Congress refused to fund building the wall.
A Republican Congress refused to investigate Spygate.
And Paul Ryan and 40 other lifers in the House refused to seek re-election in 2018, knowing this would saddle the nation with Speaker Nancy.
That is far more dangerous to the nation than some congresswoman’s old postings and retweets. The sabotage of the Republican Party by the people it sends to Washington is legendary.
In 2008, they abandoned Sarah Palin.
In 2010, they abandoned Christine O’Donnell.
In 2012, they abandoned Todd Akin.
In 2016, they abandoned Donald Trump.
In 2017, they abandoned Roy Moore.
And in 2018, they abandoned the country by paving the way for Democrats to take back the House.
I will admit that I don’t know all the facts, but I could argue that some of the items above are exaggerated; however, the next sentence is not:
Name a Democrat nominee for public office that his party has abandoned. You cannot because Democrats band together. When Anthony Weiner was caught in his underwear on Twitter, it took a few weeks of late-night jokes to get Nancy to tell him to resign.
This is one of the family of related arguments that Jesse Kelly et al have been arguing for weeks or longer. These arguments will show up here in the future.
