Our good friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has another post I’d like to share with you. I’ve included a link at the end to continue reading on his site. Thanks Jerry!
No doubt the Democratic National Committee as well as state and local Democratic campaigns across the nation will—wisely—make political hay out of the Republican National Committee’s callous and flat-out stupid wording in its censure of Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. If the Democrats fail to do so, they’ll be the stupid ones.
The censure itself was dumb enough, causing a deeper divide within the GOP. But referring to the January 6, 2021, riot/insurrection as “legitimate political discourse” had to have been the dumbest, most shortsighted resolution any political organization has made in recent decades.
If, in the run-up to the 2022 and 2024 elections, I don’t see the media teeming with split-screen ads showing the text of the RNC censure on one side and recordings from the January 6 riots on the other, I’ll eat a mayonnaise sandwich on Wonder Bread. (Note: In my opinion, mayonnaise was mankind’s most disgusting culinary creation. Wonder Bread is not far behind.)
That RNC censure was a gift that should keep on giving to the DNC for years. I’m not naïve enough to assume the egregious wording will sway more than a few loyal Trumpists, but any wavering independents—or apathetic Democrats—could easily be persuaded to fill in and return their ballots by ads based on such an asinine declaration.
