In the words of Anais Nin, “In chaos, there is fertility”, Democrats should give the American public a balcony seat to admire the chaos of Trump, as his busboy, Matt Gaetz, plots to fire Kevin McCarthy from his job. Through “fertility”, if only we let it play out, the voters might see a new GOP leadership rise from the ashes of Trump. Or, a worse leadership following in his treacherous footsteps, which might lose the GOP the House in 2024. In either case, the Democrats sinking Kevin McCarthy introduces Trump’s chaos to the voters ahead of the 2024 elections.
We believe it is imperative for the public to view first-hand what it means to elect Donald Trump for President again. Let his chaos reign for a glimpse of our reality.
We admit, though, that many of Trump’s followers, mostly confederates, are reveling in watching Washington come to a halt. Regardless whether this is good for them too as that factor does not enter into their equation.
The fact remains that no one is going to shed any tears for a weak Speaker.
MCCARTHY WAS UNFIT, ANYWAY
Let us not forget that it was Kevin McCarthy who, under pressure from the MAGA fools, running their own asylum, introduced the impeachment process against President Biden. Let us also not forget that it was Kevin McCarthy who blocked any effort at bipartisanship and brought the House to a legislative halt.
For a full resume of actions of the Speaker against common sense bipartisanship, read Steve Benen’s article on the subject on the Rachel Maddow MSNBC page. They are utterly inexcusable because they kowtow to the very far-right cabal that throw him out of office.
The fact remains that no one is going to shed any tears for Kevin. He could not handle the job.
With the chaos before us, the flood gates of the political ads for 2024 are beginning to take shape.
POLITICAL ADS ARE COMING
After yesterday’s outcome, with the Democrats sinking Kevin McCarthy, the House has entered that chaotic period Trump hopes it might lead to defunding the U.S. Government, come November, in order to put an end to his indictments. For good measure, however, it is also his revenge on the very same House that indicted him twice.
Get a supreme view of what Trump winning in 2024 might look like.
In the eyes of the leadership of the Democrats in Congress, the combination of an untrustworthy McCarthy and the display of the incompetency of the Republican Party under the tight grip of Donald Trump was too good to pass up. It will show most voters that flipping the House to the GOP in the Trump era was a big mistake. With the chaos before us, the flood gates of the political ads for 2024 are beginning to take shape.
The next few weeks are crucial. What will happen in Congress will demonstrate to the world whether we can trust this new Republican Party with managing the affairs of the country. Or, whether voters, regardless of affiliation, will flip the House back to the Democrats in 2024.
Where is that popcorn machine?
