While one of your party’s greatest heroes, Senator John McCain, lays dying, you guys, especially you, Lindsey, scatter about like frightened little mice every time Trump yells boo.

Have you no shame. Show some backbone. I mean the Donald’s already halfway to jail. So what are you guys and gals afraid of? Most of those Trump backers just want to see you folks show a little, just a little, courageous leadership to do the right thing and they will chuck the lying scoundrel over the side in a heartbeat — your party will be saved. But you first have to act like responsible men and women or you’re soon going to be cast aside by the electorate as a bunch of useless wimps.

But upon farther review, maybe being relegated to the trash heap of history for the GOP might not be such a bad thing. Really, what does the Republican Party stand for anymore besides a few worn-out clichés, keeping the K-street leaches employed and rewarding rich benefactors? Yes, indeed, going down the drain with the dirty Donald might be just what the country needs to wash the nation clean for a new era of true democracy.

So, Republicans, keep on acting like two-faced, Trump sucking asshole. I think the public’s right now busy baiting some mousetraps — eat hardy.
