I should refer to what was said by Dan Gillmor on Mastodon:
The rules package that is waiting in the wings for when Kevin McCarthy gets elected does in fact contemplate such a scenario. I wish Dan Gillmor was being paranoid. He’s not.
Republicans are in a bit of a identity crisis. Are they extremists or not? Morgan Trau talked recently about how efforts were had at the statehouse in Columbus to shift away from extremist leadership.
What does a party do when it has a faction that wants to watch the world burn and a faction that wants to govern? Notwithstanding how much people dismissed the idea it still seems that a division of the party may actually be beneficial. Trying to contain the MAGA wing within the Republican tent hasn’t been working too well lately. The farce of the speaker’s election in DC is a definite example of that.
We’re in a spot where the country can slide out of control pretty quickly with the crew taking power in DC. The thoughts by retired general Mark Hertling are a good point upon which to wrap this collection of thoughts.
