Today’s read is from one of my favorites, conservative columnist Kurt Schlichter who is always analytical and at the same time witty. Here’s an excerpt:
We are going to crush the Democrats in 2022, and there will be a temptation to sigh and wipe our brow and think it’s all over, but instead of relaxing in 2023 the GOP needs to attack. Think Attila the Hun charging at the head of his horde. Think George Patton leading the Third Army. Think Brian Stelter, who is a potato, when he sees a buffet. We need to crush their dreams and make them howl in the run-up to 2024, when we will retake the presidency and put a sharpened stake through the shriveled heart of the leftist monster.
We will have power soon. We must use it.
They will cry. We must drink their tears.
Let’s understand – because many of us don’t – that there are limitations on what we can do in 2023 and 2024 because we will not control the executive branch. Grandpa Badfinger, if he is not driven to resign by his masters in the wake of the inevitable 2022 electoral bloodbath, has only one bad choice among many worse ones – to double down and fight the strong GOP majorities for two miserable years as our enemies around the world rack up even more humiliating wins over an America hobbled by liberals who hate it and the bungling Boltonian hawk bros who think America should invade pretty much everywhere.
What can a party with a firm grasp on the legislative branch but not on the executive branch do?
There’s more. Read it all here.
