Apfel fällt nicht weit vom Stamm

“From the stem,” not “from the tree.”

And Einstein didn’t say “God doesn’t play dice.”

I haven’t heard anything about so-called moderate Republicans splitting off or renaming the party. Frankly I think moderation is dead in the GOP. Anyone still a member is OK with caged children and with the sickness of Donald Trump. Maybe they themselves aren’t foaming racists but the foaming racism of their party isn’t the deal-breaker it should be for any decent human being so they’re no damned good either.

Those talking abut splitting off want to form a party around Trump, which is a bit of a laugh because for all his talk of running again in 2024 he will probably be dead or unminded. His dementia worsened before our eyes; he can barely walk; he wears a diaper.

Trump is a man whose need for admiration is the driving force of his life. Cruelty is his only pleasure. And while he has a following comprised of society’s losers far more people despise him no recognize him as a stupid and vile man unfit for the lowest elected office, much less a return to the White House.

Let him form his Patriot Party, dividing the right into two minority parties who will never be elected to important posts, and they will because they’re too stupid to do arithmetic.
