Civil War(s)

The juiciest bit of gossip around town is this: Ron DeSantis (the GOP’s latest crush and Florida’s least charming Tin Man) is skipping CPAC 2023.

That means there are two civil wars being waged in the GOP right now. One? You know, the “divorce” being proposed by MTG (apparently one isn’t enough for her)…

If you need any more motivation to help crush MAGA in 2024, turn on Fox News right now. In between pro-Putin talking points, MTG’s being parroted with scary frequency>>

(One interesting aside I’m going to have my eye on – MTG seems to have reignited the war within Fox, too. Hannity’s all in. But the rest of them can’t seem to make up their minds.)

And I haven’t even gotten to that other “civil war” I mentioned! (We need a new name – it’s anything BUT civil). It’s happening within the GOP itself! DeSantis is stiffing CPAC because he knows Trump owns the space. The rabid MAGA base that floods these grievance galas are Trump diehards to a tee. Just look at the straw polls that are coming out of these events. Trump couldn’t get stronger support if he polled his own family. (We all know how Ivanka and Melania vote when the curtains are drawn).

Need any more proof that the DeSantis hype is just hype? He isn’t even showing up to CPAC. He knows the MAGA faithful aren’t for him. So he’s skipping the entire event.

As for us? We’ll let them fight. While they duke it out, we keep getting stronger.

Am I throwing gas on that fire? OK…you caught me. The more they fight now, the weaker they are in 2024.

Of course, we’d appreciate your help supporting our work.
