1. But with Trump gone

you’re going to begin to see things change. Because these folks know better. They know this isn’t what they’re supposed to be doing.

At least that's what I heard lately.

2. Hope is a good thing to have.

Pattern recognition is also a good thing to have.

And the pattern demonstrated by the GOP is obvious.

7. You know, I used to think that Republicans would revert to reason

I thought that way through the Reagan Years, gave George HW BUSH one chance and was cured of that delusion.

That old reasonable Republican Party that may have once existed has been dead since Newt Gingrich ascended to power. That’s over a quarter-century ago. The few remaining reasonable Republicans that lingered were holdovers from better days. They’re all gone now—dead, retired, sidelined, primaried, and thinking they’ll ever come back is folly.

I hope that if the good guys (aka Team Donkey) win in 2020, they don’t fall prey to that folly. President Obama FHA’s that illusion; I hope the next Democratic President sees more clearly.

8. So since I was quoting Biden

I assume you too will consider that when you vote in the primaries.

9. I will consider it BUT

if it’s a choice between Joe Biden and some Simon-pure but uncharismatic candidate who’d at best best Orange Julius in a squeaker election by 0.02 percent and at worst LOSE by a heartbreaking five percent, I will vote for the man or woman who can assuredly trounce Number 45. I want to save the country. I want to WIN!!!

5. Yes, I did.

An oversight.

In 2018, an open and admitted Nazi was the GOP candidate in the 3rd Illinois District. He received 56,000 votes.
