Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Vivien is convinced that her neighbor Seth has been through at least seven alien abductions and probes.
The once great Republican Party is wandering around on wobbly knees these days. If the GOP doesn’t soon do a harsh course correction it will be relegated to permanent minority status.
Change is desperately needed at the top of the GOP food chain. The Senate is lost for now. Mitch McConnell has reverted to his pre-Trump squishiness. The Red Trickle majority in the House might work out well for Republicans thanks to the way the speaker’s power has been kneecapped.
The last component in dire need of change if the GOP is to survive is the Republican National Committee.
Ronna McDaniel has been in charge of the RNC for three awful election cycles. Her only job is to help the party’s candidates win elections, and she’s failed miserably at that. What makes it even worse is that she’s a Romney.
The GOP finally rid itself of the spineless Bush influence when Liz Cheney was chased from the party. A Romney purge is now needed. Mittens is going to be tough to get out of the Senate, but his niece can soon be headed for the door.
Like all legacy political operatives, McDaniel sports a hefty sense of entitlement. A normal person with any pride would have left the job after such resounding failure. McDaniel feels that she’s GOP royalty, however, and will not go quietly into the night. She doesn’t even think that she should debate her challengers to fight for her job.
No debate! That’s apparently the sentiment of Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel. She has reportedly declined to participate in a public debate against RNC chair challengers Mike Lindell and Harmeet Dhillon. This is one more illustration of the fact that some Republican leadership doesn’t care what the base thinks, as a majority of Republican voters want to see McDaniel replaced.
Beltway Republicans continue to become more detached from the base. That’s a big part of why the Red Wave didn’t happen. The party isn’t focused on the needs of its voters.
Ronna McDaniel is the embodiment of that toxic detachment. She only cares about keeping her cushy gig and her D.C. social circle. Her wealth and privilege give her a buffer that prevents her from having to deal with the consequences of letting the Democrats run roughshod over freedom.
If McDaniel manages to stay in power, it will be obvious that the elitist fix is in with the GOP. It will be made clear to all of us here in the hinterlands that the Republican Party cares not one whit about our needs.
Let’s hope Ronna Romney will soon have some free time to spend hanging out with Liz Cheney.
