Whether it's Larry Elder or anyone else as the messenger, Trumpism is toxic for the GOP
I live here in SF, CA and the local media is saying exactly what you are saying, Michelangelo, about it being a landslide and trouncing of the GOP. Democrats, and other like-minded people, need to be aware and always fucking VOTE otherwise Trumpism will win.
Michelangelo, your comment covers the Newsom win concisely, I just hope the Repugnants don’t learn the lesson from their loss and find a future California candidate who is not a Trumpist !! We need to them to keeping finding Trump clones to endorse.
We need to drive home how much the Orange bastard was a total failure next year. No more of this bipartisan wish-washy compromise BS! We also need to primary sellout Sinema and others like her out of office as well. Plus the Democrats in the California state legislature need to makeup for all the money wasted on this recall by not allowing the GOPers to add anything to the next state budget.
It's important to remember that the conventional wisdom--that the party that holds the White House loses seats in the midterms--isn't always true. For instance, the GOP won Senate seats in 1970, Richard Nixon's first midterms.
You hit the nail on the head: "the same political media — always pandering to a bullying GOP — ." The media will keep pandering, the GOP will continue to embrace Trumpism and anti-vaxxers will continue to die of Covid because they are foolish, crazy, evil or all of the above. Almost two thirds of the electorate in CA, and a majority of people across the country are fed up with this bullshit.
By next year, Trump will be indicted, more scary details about his crazy, treasonous last days in office and his deep financial ties to Russia will be revealed. His long-time associates will flip on him to avoid lifetime jail sentences. The Dems. will keep their strong, progressive messages with President Biden leading and with level-headed governors like Newsom in CA and Hochul in NY (who gave an impressive interview last night on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell), fighting Covid and keeping schools and businesses open. Seems to me that anyone who wraps their political future around Trumpism are doomed and the Democrats could blow the political media's mind in 2022. Here's hoping!
I hope the Democrats hammer on the Insurrection that was incited by Trump because he was a sore loser. Also, hammer on the fact that the GOP is taking us backwards. Women fought hard for their reproductive freedom in the 60's and achieved it in the early 70's. Are we going backward or forward to compete with the rest of the world? No more bi-partisan nice guys!
I completely forgot also that we need to drive home the message of getting rid of the filibuster.
The lead line above is complete fact Michelangelo. We MUST continue to take down all FAKE theories whether they be in politics or science/health!
