Ms. Jennifer Rubin (one of the many neocon throw-pillows with which Fred Hiatt decorates the op-ed page of the Washington Post) decided to tarry along the way to her upteenth "OMFG! The Republican Party is full of Republicans!" column --
As for the right-wing groups, publications and other enablers who went the extra mile (and around the bend) for Trump, there is no reason Republicans hereafter should listen to them, send them money or include them in discussions about the future of the party. Really, does any Republican think Newt Gingrich or Rudy Giuliani will have any credibility after November?
-- just long enough to re-litigate the Iraq War:
Not just Clinton, but scores of Senate and House Democrats in contested primaries had to rebut attacks from the left that they were snookered by the Bush administration or war mongers. Given the conclusion of every Western intelligence agency that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, the attacks were unfair and over the top.
Oh honey, it is just adorable how you still parade around in public in your rotting "Mission Accomplished!" prom dress, but honestly, outside of the Fox News spider-hole and Fred Hiatt's neocon tree-fort there is virtually nobody left in the GOP who wants to wear that fucking albatross around their necks.
Or maybe you didn't notice that one of the siege weapons Donald J. Trump used to destroy Mister Low Energy Man's future in the Republican Party was a very large "The Iraq War Was A Giant Fuck-Up" freeze ray with which he shot into Mister Low Energy Man;s face over and over again:
Of course Trump is lying about his support of the Iraq War just as he lies about everything else, but he knows what his wingnut legions want to hear: that the Bush's Operation Endless Clusterfuck was debacle based on lies for which, somehow, despite cheering for it, voting for it and calling its opponents "traitors" for year, they are in no way responsible.
Which is what makes Ms. Rubin's headline such a tiny gem of clueless Beltway inbreeding:
Will Trump be Republicans’ Iraq War vote?
No, J-Rub, the Republican's Iraq War vote has become the "Republican's Iraq War".
Because as I explained back in 2009, since the collapse of the Bush Administration, the base of the Republican party -- like German soldiers after the fall of Berlin -- have stopped running away from the catastrophe they created only long enough to burn their uniforms, re-brand themselves as Tea Partiers, and fall into the arms of the Burnt Orange Fascist of their dreams.
