No Future for the GOP?

it's purely symbolic, and entirely in line with their desires to turn back the clock to a time when everything was better (ie, whiter, conservative, hetro...MAG AGAIN, rejection of all things progressive ). outlaw these elitist, effete "modern" buildings most likely designed by foreigners, preserve the macho anglo "classic" architecture.
I do get that, but I just think it's funny that they are outraged about something that 99.9 percent of them couldn't recognise or differentiate between. They are angry at the principle not the thing itself.

His sister's psych profiles on him were the light at the end of that tunnel while Donnie was in office !

Why do i keep calling him Donnie ?
Emotional dev of a 5 year old it has been said and on basis of how he acts that may just be the basis.
He does argue like a child

I can't recall who but someone on the campaign trail either in 2016 or 2020 would occasionally refer to him as Don, just to get his goat. it may have even been biden, during a debate or in interviews. Apparently he hates when people call him that, it's not formal enough, doesn't convey respect, in his warped mind. Hell, most of the people who worked with him in business and government always call him Mr. Trump.

there's some weird shit goin' on in his head.

same reason they drive gas-guzzling chevy pickup tricks instead of hybrids/electric cars, smoke marlboro instead of gitanes, listen to kid rock instead of Kraftwerk....

From the minds over at CK's Illiberal division.
Shareholders including Vlad's Russia, Xi CCP, Orban's Hungary, Brazil
and some in the ol' unUnitedSA. Donnie got pretty far in his bumbling, fondling -
but concentrated drive.

I was stuck by this section of a Paul Krugman column a few days ago ("What’s the Secret of Biden’s Success?)

Another factor working in Biden’s favor is the closing of professional Republicans’ minds. Even before conspiracy theories took control, Republican politicians were living in a mental bubble; in many ways the modern G.O.P. is more like a cult than a normal political party.

And at this point Republicans seem so deep in the cult that they’ve forgotten how to talk to outsiders. When they denounce every progressive idea as socialism, declare every center-left politician a Marxist, rant about “job creators” and insist on calling their rival the “Democrat Party,” they’re talking to themselves and persuading nobody.

If you want to see Republican tone-deafness in action, look at Senator Marsha Blackburn’s recent attack on the jobs plan. It’s not really about infrastructure, she proclaimed; why, it would spend hundreds of billions on elder care. And she apparently imagined that voters would see helping the elderly as a bad thing.
