Those Were The Days, My Friend

Once upon a time there were a handful of Republicans who could be moved by the overwhelming weight of facts to stand up to the reckless, criminal lunatics in their own party.

Even when those reckless, criminal lunatics were running their party.

Those days are gone.  Probably for the foreseeable future.

Those were the days, my friend

We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way

Has anyone else noticed that the legendary Republican party unity fell apart when they got rid of the earmarks that kept them in line?

I bet they'll be back next congress.

To be fair Driftglass, it took overwhelming evidence for those "thinking" Republicans to act, and then it was to give Nixon the only way out to avoid impeachment and certain removal from office.
