We’re so proud of the work we accomplished in 2021 – and we’re eager to get back to work on behalf of Arizona’s everyday families in the new year.— Kyrsten Sinema (@kyrstensinema) January 1, 2022
In a few days, it will be January 6, 2022.
“One year after from the smoke and broken glass, the mock gallows and the very real bloodshed of that awful day, it is tempting to look back and imagine that we can, in fact, simply look back. To imagine that what happened on Jan. 6, 2021 — a deadly riot at the seat of American government, incited by a defeated president amid a last-ditch effort to thwart the transfer of power to his successor — was horrifying but that it is in the past and that we as a nation have moved on.
This is an understandable impulse. After four years of chaos, cruelty and incompetence, culminating in a pandemic and the once-unthinkable trauma of Jan. 6, most Americans were desperate for some peace and quiet.
On the surface, we have achieved that. Our political life seems more or less normal these days, as the president pardons turkeys and Congress quarrels over spending bills. But peel back a layer, and things are far from normal. Jan. 6 is not in the past; it is every day. …”
A year ago, Your Favorite President was at his political nadir and Joe Biden was at the peak of his popularity. Today, it is exactly the other way around because he blew it. It is really even worse than that because his supporters are so much more radical than in 2016.
“In short, the Republic faces an existential threat from a movement that is openly contemptuous of democracy and has shown that it is willing to use violence to achieve its ends. …”
There hasn’t been any violence.
The Brandon administration is so unpopular that “our democracy” will simply be rejected and voted out of office like in Hungary. It doesn’t even look like it will be close.
From Politicos Playbook:
The Democrats have literally spent trillions of dollars trying to buy off their opposition, but they are so culturally toxic in the Heartland that they are going to lose to a party running on “Let’s Go Brandon.” Am I alone in finding this revealing and hilarious?
