We’re at the endgame of this particular episode of Republican craziness. Their logic and their brains have melted away. Their messaging is a toxic stew. Their political strategies are sand in the wind. Their policies are incoherent rage. The biggest questions now are how much damage will they cause, to the country and to themselves. We will soon know the answers because we are almost out of time. The scariest thing is that you can’t cut a deal with people who, uh, think(?) like this. We can only hope that the saner people in the Republican party can find a way around their sociopathic brothers and sisters.
