44 Takes the Measure of the GOP

Only 500 pages more to go, people! If self remains completely focused tomorrow, she may finish A Promised Land without actually having to blog about it 20 more times.

McConnell is singing a different tune these days, praising Operation Warp Speed and blaming the Democrats for “wanting to take all the credit.”

Careful, Mitch, you’re in danger of turning into Lindsey!

A Promised Land, p. 259:

  • They (The GOP) understood that any help they offered my administration in mounting an effective, sustained government response to the crisis would only be to my political benefit — and would tacitly acknowledge the bankruptcy of their own anti-government, anti-regulation rhetoric. If, on the other hand, they fought a rearguard action, if they generated controversy and threw sand in the gears, they at least had a chance to energise their base and slow me and the Democrats down at a time when the country was sure to be impatient.

Sounds like nothing’s changed in the intervening.

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
