So, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy stated pretty openly that at a Republican House Conference being held this week he will allow Liz Cheney to be replaced by Rep. Elise Stefanik. Now don’t get me wrong. I’ve heard nothing but bad things about Stefanik. She’s just another Congress critter that cares nothing about me or you. But she knows which side her bread is buttered on and that Donald Trump is the one handing out the butter. So, she’ll keep her mouth shut and not help the Democrats when they’re going after our side.
To me, the only thing that makes any of this interesting is that I am a great adherent of the concept of the vendetta. Basically, it’s a genetic and cultural predisposition. The idea of just revenge or even spite is one of my primary motivations nowadays.
I’m of the opinion that we are not likely to prevail over the progressives in the federal elections ever again. But what we can do is punish the quislings who got us here. People like Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney and Lisa Murkowski are our enemies. They have damaged this country and will continue to do so for as long as they are allowed to represent us. Kicking them out of office is a sacred duty but more than that, it is a schadenfreudian delight. Since they’re not technically Democrats they aren’t going to be offered the sinecures that get handed out to friends of the Deep State. Liz will have to settle for a spot on a crappy neo-con think tank and maybe some face time on CNN. Lisa Murkowski will be forced to become a deck swab on an Alaskan king crab trawler. And Mitt Romney will become a male model for dental implant commercials. And that is as it should be. These are terrible people. Discomfiting them is a good thing. And if I get a good laugh when it happens that’s just karma doing its job.
I’m under no illusions that we have the votes that will be needed to beat the Democrats at the ballot box. They have already shown that they will commit massive fraud to get their way. Until we are willing to say no to their unconstitutional tyranny, we will continue to lose ground in the culture wars and everywhere else.
But at least, at the very bare minimum, we must not let traitors and grifters give away our votes in the halls of Washington. George Bush I, George Bush II, John McCain, Mitt Romney and if they’d had their way, JEB! Bush were who we were given to be our representatives in the White House. They were supposed to be conservatives. It only takes a cursory look at their records to know that not only weren’t they conservatives, they don’t even know what conservative means.
I think the House conference meeting is Wednesday. If it’s on CSPAN I’ll make a point to watch it live. I’ll pop some corn. It should be wonderful. And next year when all ten of the house reps who voted to impeach President Trump, are up for re-election I’ll be watching to see how they do in their primaries. If they lose in their primaries, I’m not particularly interested in whether the Republicans retain the seat. I mean, it would be nice but as I said I don’t think we’ll vote our way out of this. But just knowing that these clowns will have to get jobs will bring a smile to my face. And it will be good for our politics. Who knows? Maybe someday the Republicans will become known as the formerly stupid party.
