“The scenes over the weekend were almost as if a multitrillion-dollar war machine had morphed into a garage sale.” ⁦@Tmgneff⁩ reports at Kandahar Air Base. A jarring dispatch for those of us there in Jan 2002, when the Army arrived. https://t.co/dFf2KdHoEs

Quoted @NewDay

An anti-Trump GOP congressional candidate in Texas lost his race and says he is worried about the future of his party. Some people won't "call themselves Republicans if we don't move past...this horrible cult of personality we built up around Donald Trump," Michael Wood says. https://t.co/48tpJmHW2y

There are many signs of the times. The outcome of this race is not one of them. https://t.co/L7dyDJI6LY

Tons of rich texture in @elainaplott's deep dive into the TX GOP, but stick around for the post-election rally scene (and the kicker.) Election integrity bit is great turnout fodder, but the logical conclusion gets dark. https://t.co/TobcTzZx9b https://t.co/lOKikReBfk

Finally got around to reading the Times Mag piece on the Texas GOP and it's a proud day — the Grey Lady went with Bonnenghazi over Bonnghazi.

"The Republican Party — in Texas, in America — was 'over' and 'done,' he said. The Communists had taken control of system, and they had already picked their winners. And so he had made up his mind, he said: He would never vote in a federal election again." https://t.co/dFWn40KCTB

Quoted @daxcontreras

I see some parallels between the TX GOP & NM GOP (such as the struggle between party moderates and more extreme members) but obviously the biggest difference is the NM GOP has recently been so electorally ineffective that the governing struggles seem like such a luxury. #nmpol https://t.co/WHkQoE1v6T

This is an important point. The intraparty struggles in the Texas GOP will have little to no bearing on their ability to maintain power, electorally speaking (they're about to draw two more congressional seats!). But they have a lot to do with how those electeds choose to govern. https://t.co/uTbkgzZA8G

This wild @elainaplott story on the fracturing Texas GOP reminds me of the kid in MONEYBALL who was so scared of tripping over the bases that he didn't know he had homered. Except now it's as if he decided baseball is Communist and rigged. https://t.co/Ok6ldF7bjv

I also want to note that I called and texted Steve Hotze roughly 30 times for this story and he always left me on read :( His voicemail, however, expresses gratitude for the "friendship" of those who reach it, which I thought was nice!
