Now that Donald Trump has made history as the first reality TV game show host to be impeached twice, his toxic legacy is infecting the Republican Party that kneeled before him for four excruciating years. The latest humiliation for the Party came when they failed to convict Trump for inciting the Capitol Hill Insurrection, despite the avalanche of evidence.

The fact remains that a bipartisan majority of the Senate (57-43) voted to convict Trump, just not the two-thirds required to seal his fate. But that technicality doesn’t distract from the fact that the Democrats won the impeachment debate. And it won’t prevent Trump from being remembered forever by the American people for betraying his country.
For Trump and his apologists to regard having lost a majority of the Senate is a bizarre twist on the concept of victory. Even GOP leader Mitch McConnell ultimately conceded Trump’s guilt. After the vote he described Trump’s behavior as a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” about which he said “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.” Which makes his vote to acquit an exercise in flaming hypocrisy and cowardice.
In the meantime, the disgraced GOP appears intent on cementing their reputation as a closed-minded confederacy of goose-stepping ultra-rightists who demand strict obedience to party dogma. The few Republicans who dared to vote their conscience and convict Trump have already been subjected to the lash wielded by the Party Martinets of Virtue.
A frenzy of censures have been imposed on the disobedient ones who betrayed Dear Leader. They include Sen. Bill Cassidy, Sen. Richard Burr, Sen. Ben Sasse, Sen. Pat Toomey, Rep. Liz Cheney, Rep. Peter Meijer, Rep. Fred Upton, Rep. Tom Rice, and Gov, Doug Ducey, so far.
This is the punishment for exercising free thought in today’s GOP. The party has devolved so drastically that it cannot even pretend to be supportive of law and order or the democratic principles upon which the nation was founded. And it is making a mockery of its complaints about “cancel culture” by literally canceling their own members for the crime of honoring the Constitution and for having a spine.
The GOP’s Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) is getting tossed in the torrent. On one hand they are joining the Party’s lynch mob to attack wayward Republicans. On the other, many of Trump’s cult disciples are abandoning Fox News for not being sufficiently worshipful. What’s a shameless purveyor of propaganda to do?
This may all be a harbinger of doom for the Republican party. There have been rumors that Trump has been toying with the idea of splitting from the GOP and starting his own self-exalting Church of Trump Party. Although he doesn’t really need to do that because he already owns the GOP.
A more likely scenario would be that Republicans of the more sane variety (if they exist) will bolt and start a third party of their own. Either way, what we know today as the Republican Party is falling apart. And that will be good news for Democrats in 2022 and beyond.

The ludicrous braying of the Reich Wing about “cancel culture” has long been an obvious example of its proclivity for projection. No one has been more obviously immersed in cancel culture, whether from their envious sneering at the contributions of Black, Brown and indigenous (and Female!) Americans, to the subversion of their children’s minds by “opting-out” of Black History classes, to the inane, simplistic “1776 Project’. You can be sure that anything, if the sniveling Reich Wing complains of it, is exactly their MO. And that, BTW, includes voter fraud — in spades.
Indeed, the only voter fraud resulting from 2020 elections was done by Trump, in his phone call to Georgia’s Sec of State. Raffensberger’s staff was smart enuff to record that call & released it, or we’d not have proof that Trump had done it.
Lot of good that did us! /s
After that came Jan 6th & attempt to steal election ~ when Trump’s violent mob that he arranged & sent for, after a morning of speeches to rile them up in a frenzy, stormed Capitol & went hunting for Pence & Congress ~ causing death, vandalism, theft & chaos on Trump’s word. Now, that’s MAJOR election fraud!
2 attempts to steal the election, both with plenty of proof Trump did them. You’d think that would be enuff to condemn Trump for those acts, but no-o-o-o-o…not enuff for the Rethugs Party of scum! As is always the case with that bunch, THEY are the ones doing what they accuse others of doing!
Party of scumbuckets! Seriously!
We all need to send fawning letters to Trumpler begging him to start his own party. He’ll take all the loonies & thugs with him and the remaining GOP will exist only as an opposition party, never mustering the strength to assume power. Trump will declare war on the stump of the Repugnican party as traitors to his cause and thus leave the Democrats to get on with the vital task of rebuilding the country.
That’s a really good idea, actually! “Know your narcissist!” …that could work! Especially since this full-blown poster child for Malignant Narcissism is currently going thru severe withdrawal, missing all the constant attention & drooling adoration of large crowds of his cult followers right now.
The replays of footage from Jan 6th storming of the Capitol bldg, at Trump’s direction, can only feed his oversized ego for a short time. The adoration & sense of power it gives him is like heroin to an addict & he will be “jonesing” really bad, real soon. Major “love & miss you” (so gross!) letters from the masses, encouraging him in a way narcissist like Trump can’t resist CAN work! Narcissists are EZ to play. Very predictable, as far as physch disorders go.
Now…how do we get address for him & how can we get word out all over, to get as many as possible to write those “fawning letters”? Let’s do our best to save our democracy by helping split Rethug Party along its natural fault lines.
Welcome aboard Sunny. Mar-a-Lago’s address is: 1100 South Ocean Blvd., FLA 33480. If we address letters to “President Trump” (something I’ve never actually said or written before), we can be sure they’ll get opened and then some lackey will read them to him (because he can’t).
