Republicans Turn Against Each Other As Campaign Cash Dries Up

The rats in the Republican Party are finally beginning to eat one another as resources become more and more scarce. They have a pretty impressive war chest heading into November – about $100 million – but they are using most of that money to save 8 incumbent senators and leaving everyone else to fend for themselves. This would be a pyrrhic victory for the GOP, as they could easily win the battle but not before destroying their Party in the process. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Just a couple months ago, a story came out about rats in several big cities in the United States. After all this was, you know, about a month into the shutdown and restaurants weren't open, there was less human activity. Rats in major cities were starting to go hungry. And what the researchers found was that the rats, because there was no other food available, they would actually resort to cannibalism. In short, when there were short on resources, the rats just began to eat one another and we're seeing the same thing, actually take place in the United States Senate, except instead of rats, we're dealing with Republicans, which is far worse than rats. A dirtier filthier generally have fewer ethics than an actual rat, but nevertheless, we're watching them metaphorically eat one another right now over the shortage of resources that they're experiencing. And that shortage of resources is campaign cash. Because even though Republicans in the Senate have $100 million cash on hand to spend in the upcoming election, they have decided those at the top, the top rats King rats, they have decided that they're going to spend nearly all of that money, just protecting eight, eight incumbent Republicans. Everybody else you're essentially on your own. If your campaign can go out and raise money and get people directly donating to you. Fantastic. So be it,

You have not done

Come, uh, expecting any help from the Republican senatorial campaign committee because we have to protect these people. Some of those people include Kelly Loeffler from the state of Georgia. You remember her, the one who, uh, pretty much was caught red handed with all the insider trading and not punished poured whatsoever. Um, she's in a lot of trouble down here in Georgia. Republicans didn't think she would be, but now she is, this is supposed to be a solidly safe red seat. That suddenly is very flippable for Democrats. Especially when the Republicans put up somebody who very clearly broke the law and didn't face any consequences for it. You know, as much as Republicans love that she didn't go to jail yet. They understand that that is now a huge liability. The people do not like her. She is not popular. So they have to spend all the money there. They're having to do it in other States as well, Alabama, Doug Jones, The Democrat who, uh, took the Senate seat away from Roy Moore, after Moore's horrendous a grotesque past, we'll call it a resurface. So a Democrat one that Alabama Senate seat, that should be a given for Republicans too. It's not. So Republicans are putting their money into it. The club for growth has actually put millions of dollars into an anti Doug Jones campaign. But here is what this really tells us. Cause again, they're doing this with eight senators who are essentially getting almost all according to reports of the $100 million. This means that they are no longer planning or even attempting to pick up any democratic controlled seats. What they are hoping for at best is to maintain their slim majority in the Senate. That is the best case scenario for these Republicans. And that means that the Democrats have a golden opportunity here to do something amazing, do something worthwhile and do something transformational by getting these Republicans out of office.
