DeSantis/Trump brawl about to kick into high gear

Meanwhile in the post-truth world...

DeSantis is going after Trump for being a covid 'hawk'. This after Trump called DeSantis cowardly for not stating his vax status publicly.

Manu Raju (CNN):

DeSantis says one of his biggest regrets was not speaking out "louder" on Trump admin calls for lock down during the pandemic. "And I think it knowing now what I know, then if that was a threat earlier, I would have been much louder." About 32 mins in:

Attempts to out-lie TFG must be the end game. The only pathway to election is to be more insane than whomever came before.

But any Republican criticizing TDG is a net win. So I’ll take it gladly, and ask for seconds.

I agree, the more crazies in the race (and there is no lack) makes it easier by far for a more sane candidate to emerge. But I've been wrong about the level of crazy before!

If I had to choose between DeSantis and Trump in an election... I'd drink bleach.

Seriously though, I'd have to go with Trump. Desantis is Trump on steroids, just as nuts but far more adept at politics. Trump wants to be a dictator, DeSantis knows how to become one.

tough call... I'm terrified of Trump's instability. He had to be talked down from some pretty crazy ideas in his first term - there won't be anyone sane left if he gets another term.

I'm leaning towards bleach...

Well, you would not have to choose between either of those two, unless you were forced to vote in a Republican caucus.

I live in a county where if you are not Republican you don't get to vote. The Dems have not put any local candidates up in the last two election cycles. So I've sat out the last two primaries and watched decent Republicans lose to loonies. I'm not doing that a third time.

If only a bunch of Dems would vote in the Repub primary in NW GA and support anybody who runs against Marjorie Taylor Greene, our representative. Maybe somebody could cancel her ticket. Literally anybody would be better.

Wow. I live in a Democratic party controlled state and the Rs always put up some sacrificial lamb.

Ombligo, you should run. Your slogan could be, “I won’t have two hands in the till like my opponent.”
