I’m feeling more optimistic this morning than I have in some time.
The nuts have finally gone too far. A sense of revulsion has overtaken many Americans.
There is evidence supporting this:
Most important, the 180 degree reversals by key Republican leaders, including McConnell, Pence and Graham. They are savvy politicians who know which way the wind is blowing and are moving rapidly to try to salvage their careers.
A couple of years ago I talked privately with a friend of mine, a high-powered lobbyist who has the best political instincts I know. He works for [redacted], but I don’t want to mention his name. His firm represents both Democrats and Republicans, and he doesn’t like to talk publicly about his personal political views.
I told him my sense was that most Republican senators despised Trump and I thought it was inevitable that they would turn against him eventually. He responded:
“They will be for him until a half hour before they are against him.”
Looks like my friend’s assessment was correct.
P.S. I’m sending blind CC’s to selected friends.

Subject: This is sedition…
As I watch the events today, I am outraged and angry and sad. Just when I though it could not get any lower the moron takes into a 3rd world banana republic. Sad…
But I a thinking this is what we need, this should wake up those moderate Rs and independents to realize these wacked out right-wing nuts of the Rs have to go!!!
Someone is going to get hurt and possibly die…
This is not over yet.
