It was for many the authors point is that the GOPs argument all along of well lose if we dont stick together falls flat on its face when the stupid party is going about doing that all by its lonesome.
If theyre are playing to lose anyway, why stick around?
The GOP has a strange concept of “winning”. Any advantages they may gain or enjoy are quickly compromised away. At its core it is a party governed by anxiety, guilt and fear instead of courage, principles, and conviction.
Democrats understand the GOP mentality quite well, and take full advantage of them.
