I can think of no clearer illustration of the iron law of institutions than Donald Trump’s sabotage of the GOP’s election prospects to serve his own ego.
He already cost the Republicans two Georgia Senate seats by making it sound like the election was fixed and there was no point voting. Now he’s more explicitly encouraging Republicans not to vote in 2022 unless … well, so chronically garbled is his syntax that I’m not sure what the “unless” is. It has something to do with his delusion that the 2020 Election was stolen from him.
Oh, yeah, while I’m at it. If Justice Merrick Garland (on the Supreme Court) would have been as partisan as he’s been as A.G. — particularly, the attempt to intimidate parents out of objecting to policies at school board meetings — I’m glad Mitch McConnell stonewalled him.
