Poison Fruit from a Poison Tree

This. Must. All. End.

This from Mr. Paul Krugman of The New York Times may sound familiar to longtime readers (with emphasis added to brighten up the room):

The Silence of the Hacks

Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House oversight committee — who hounded Hillary Clinton endlessly over Benghazi — declared that the “situation has taken care of itself.”

Just the other day Republicans were hot in pursuit of potential scandal, and posed as ultrapatriots. Now they’re indifferent to actual subversion and the real possibility that we are being governed by people who take their cues from Moscow. Why?

Well, Senator Rand Paul explained it all: “We’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do, like repealing Obamacare, if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans.” Does anyone doubt that he was speaking for his whole party?

The point is that you can’t understand the mess we’re in without appreciating not just the potential corruption of the president, but the unmistakable corruption of his party — a party so intent on cutting taxes for the wealthy, deregulating banks and polluters and dismantling social programs that accepting foreign subversion is, apparently, a small price to pay.

Put it this way: I’ve been seeing comparisons between the emerging information on the Trump-Putin connection and the Watergate affair, which brought down a previous president. But while the potential scandal here is far worse than Watergate — Richard Nixon was sinister and scary, but nobody imagined that he might be taking instructions from a foreign power — it’s very hard to imagine today’s Republicans standing up for the Constitution the way their predecessors did.
Rather than face the ugly fact that the Left has been absolutely right about them all along, Republicans long ago sold their souls to a cabal of con-men and fascists who flattered them and praised them and coached them to blamed us Libtards every time Reality slapped Rush Limbaugh's dick out of their mouths.

The point is, there is nothing left worth saving inside husk of the Party of Lincoln. It has grown rotten from the root to the fruit and become something that must be aborted because it is unholy and evil.
