Welcome to the Ideological Collapse of the GOP• LewRockwell.com - Emerald Robinson
Many of my conservative friends — quite a few of them GOP donors and campaign strategists and media people I must admit — greeted the news of Herschel Walker's defeat in the Georgia Senate with a shrug.
What difference did it make really? What difference could it make?
It was not indifference to Herschel Walker as a candidate, per se, so much as indifference to the GOP having a majority in the Senate.
Simply put: very few of them believed that a GOP-dominated Senate would do anything for GOP voters. The mood could be described as complete disgust with Mitch McConnell and GOP leadership — or, as I prefer to call them — our senators from the great states of Cialis.
It's not just the gelatinous blob known as Mitch McConnell, or that closeted court jester of Fox News, Lindsey Graham. It's not only the spectacular career implosions of Ben Sasse and John Cornryn. What about Pat Toomey? Rob Portman? Richard Burr? Roy Blunt? Mitt Romney? Thom Tillis? Bill Cassidy? Lisa Murkowski? Look at their voting records: they're basically a chorus-line of limp-wristed flip-floppers.
