Are The Nevada Republicans Okay? Do They Need A Police Man Or A Grownup?

(They are not okay. They definitely need a police man or a grownup)

How bad is the chaos in Nevada's GOP? Well, Politico interrupted its daily Dems In Disarray programming to write an article titled 'Really embarrassing': GOP erupts into swing state civil war, so pretty bad actually.

In the nuttiest of nutshells, the state party has been taken over by Stop the Steal lunatics, who are systematically trying to evict the slightly less lunatic normies who have run the county parties for years. Remember Reagan's Eleventh Commandment, "Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican"? LOL, good luck with that.

The Nevada GOP is currently headed by Michael McDonald, who could most charitably be described as "a character." Here's a fun snippet from an amazing Daily Beast profile of McDonald from November when he was spearheading the effort to prove vote fraud in his home state.

While McDonald served as a board member of Miracle Flights for Kids, a children's charity, $2.2 million was borrowed from the organization's coffers to benefit a medical lien company in which he held a 33 percent interest. He allegedly accepted a $200,000 finder's fee for his efforts. The company later defaulted on the loan, and for a time moved its hustle into Nevada Republican Party headquarters. McDonald claimed not to have any role in the loan process.

He seems nice.

McDonald claims not to have any association with "an organization called the 'Proud Boys.'" And yet, those fine upstanding citizens keep appearing at county party events to make sure that McDonald's agenda sails through, or else. On April 10, they showed up at a meeting of the state party and provided the votes to censure Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the only Republican elected statewide, for failing to support the nonsensical claims of election fraud in 2020.

VA GOP Gov. Candidate Glenn Youngkin Not Familiar With This 'Trump' You Speak Of, How You Spell That?

Scenes from the VA-GOV race.

Some Democrats are worrying — Politico Playbook said they "HIT THE PANIC BUTTON" this week — about November's gubernatorial race in Virginia between former governor Terry McAuliffe and Trump-anointed Christian right anti-abortion asshole Glenn Youngkin. Virginia is a pretty blue state, so hopefully close polling isn't that big of a deal and McAuliffe will get re-elected to his old job. We shall see. Our gut — which is our gut, and nothing else — says it's probably fine, because Virginia really is blue, and the Beltway media is just looking for something to shit its pants about.

Of course, as usual, Democrats can't afford to sleep on voting. Can we be confident Democrats have learned that lesson after four years of literally Donald Fucking Trump? Is America so stupid (yes) that it would follow its usual path and immediately flip back toward the Republicans, after just last year giving Democrats control of the entire government? (Yes again yes we said yes dumbest country on planet yes.)

Anyway, both candidates are trying to stay in exactly the perfect lane that will bring their bases out to vote, but not scare away moderates who live in suburbs. For example, as Playbook reported, McAuliffe is telling DC Democrats and Joe Biden to "get their act together." That's right, Terry, you tell them DC Democrats who live in faraway out-of-touch across the Potomac River!

Meanwhile Youngkin is trying to walk the line between giving Donald Trump a full-throated mouth hug and pretending like actually he's never met Trump, depending on which constituency he's talking to. ("Never Trumpers and Forever Trumpers," he talks about.) Trump has not actually come to Virginia, and Youngkin tries not to talk about him too much.

But there was a rally focused on electing Youngkin on Wednesday night, the "Take Back Virginia" rally, and oh boy, it was Trump as fuck. Steve Bannon rubbed his pubic grundle area all over the whole state — figuratively, of course! — and Trump called in to endorse Youngkin and to call the 2020 election RIGGED! and the other speakers babbled conspiracy theories about how the election was RIGGED! and everybody pledged allegiance to an American flag that was reportedly at the Trump Capitol terrorist attack.

How's that playing with the soccer moms in Vienna and Fairfax, Glenn?

Texas School District Just Trying To Teach Kids Softer Side Of Holocaust

That Bugs Bunny slicing off Florida .gif but with Texas instead.

Lotta people this morning throwing around phrases like "Oh my fucking God" and "Holy shit, Republicans are literal Nazis." No matter how you're expressing your outrage, you should just know that what's happening right now in Texas, as usual, is the fault of GOP Governor Greg Abbott and the rest of the Texas Republicans.

That statement could refer to so many things, but in this case, we're talking about the story NBC News broke of what's happening in the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake, Texas, where an administrator has been caught on tape telling teachers they need to have books in their classrooms that give "opposing" views of the Holocaust.

Because in a world where Chuck Todd has taught us there are two sides to every story, and where white Republicans are having meltdowns because mean liberals are calling them racist just because they're racist, we now have to teach the "opposing" side of the Holocaust.
