Politico painfully elucidates the obvious in a piece entitled, Trump’s refusal to concede amps up pressure on GOP: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is perhaps the most important figure who hasn’t weighed in publicly.
Their perspective is short term: Whatcha gonna say on Meet the Press? Whatcha gonna say on Fox and Friends?
But it’s not a short-term messaging issue. It’s a long-term issue, a large proportion of Republican voters have gone out of their cotton-pickin’ minds. Their prophesy has failed, and all they can do is pass around bogus explanations.
It is, I think, the job of progressives to hop up and down demanding that Republicans—especially Republican office-holders—pick a side, either the crazy side or the sensible side.
