All the hot air, Only slows his fall.
Party designation ( R vs D ) on your list of Representatives needs correction.
A great column this morning, as usual.
Really good work Jerry. Thanks.
I do wonder whether many Democrats will end up supporting McCarthy, given the not unreasonable fear that the alternative could very well be even worse.
Way too long.
Please provide a list of non-MAGA, non-McCarthy-aligned Congressional Republicans. I would like to be able to be specific when I reach out to the list of folks you are asking us to contact.
Thank you so much for your prompt and helpful response.
Wow, you found 8 traditional Republicans. I didn't think that possible. That party has gone off the a cliff into a sea if insanity. A dozen or so years ago, the future of that party in the House was placed in Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy. They were hard conservatives but not nuts. All three were driven out by a party being driven ever further to the right. An ever growing set of media outlets fed the base a steady diet of fear, division, and hate to keep them watching and secure their bottom line. In the end, the base in an increasingly gerrymandered political world has dragged the GOP to the point where it has no interest in governing. It really is a nihilistic cult. Even Gingrich is appalled. We will see what happens. One glimmer of hope. Wisconsin now has a Supreme Court that might undo the most gerrymandered voting lines in the country though the state GOP keeps threatening to impeach the newly elected liberal Justice without cause. Talk about the old Chinese curse ... may you live in interesting times.
Again....Jerry Weiss, Thank you for the opportunity to help.
I've called everyone on this list and have received a affirming response.
I live in a swing district represented by David Schweikert (R-AZ). Thank you for providing the talking points to urge him to cross over from the land of Dysfunction to a functional government. Sharing this with my Facebook friends in the hopes that our collective voices can spur the change.
On your list of "traditional Republicans", you should also give their districts. I might know people who are their constituents.
