I am pressed for time, but here is my thesis statement: As much as we can enjoy watching the Republicans collide with each other and try to deal with a President who doesn’t even honor the deals he makes with them, let alone us, this is all window dressing. The GOP will unify in plenty of time for 2018, let alone 2020, whether they’re carrying a banner that says Trump, McConnell, or worst of all, He Who Should Be Obscure by Now.
But, for a number of reasons, most notably lack of political engagement, we don’t necessarily benefit from their troubles. We still have gobs of work to do restoring our own image. Long story short, people still hate all politicians.
That’s it. Happy Friday, and open this thread if you like.
