(1) I know it must seem confusing that I have waxed eloquent about Lindsey Graham one minute and denounced him the next, so I better explain why. Same goes for Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and some others.

I believe in always #VoteGOP while criticizing issue by issue regardless.
(2) A lot of folk don't always #VoteGOP, and they, are the reason we don't always win elections. You can divert blame all over the place if you want, to vote fraud and other places, but this fact is inescapable. Staying home ensures that a Democrat wins.
(3) My heart goes out to all the patriots who have to vote for people like Mitt Romney, in order to keep a Democrat out. Your situation sucks.

As irritating as he's going to be in the Senate, he will vote for GOP-nominated judges, and that is EVERYTHING. Absolutely everything.
(4) Today I heard Lindsey Graham call Crown Prince MbS of Saudi Arabia "crazy." He literally used that word. FFS.

What an anti-American, pro-Iran, pro-perpetual war thing to say at this time. It's like he's learned nothing at all from Trump.
(5) I'd still vote for Lindsey Graham if I'm ever blessed enough to become a citizen in the great state of South Carolina. But he's 180 degrees wrong about MbS.

I don't place him in the same category as he who shall not be named. Graham still has redeeming features.
(6) Are you counting the days till Flake and Corker are gone? I sure am. We really need a good Chairman for the Foreign Relations Committee. Someone who will SUPPORT the incredibly successful, historic #TrumpDoctrine of #PrincipledRealism. Not appeasement, or neoconservatism.
(7) It's a shame that "time served" is so prevalent in Congressional Committee assignment decisions. It's actually possible to change that, if someone ever finds the will.

In NZ, the head of the majority party appoints chairmen on MERIT incl. policy positions, not time served.
(8) The saying "rust never sleeps" is like the politicians who are always trying to resist the #MAGA agenda. Rather than having the courage, faith and frankly, intellect, to get on board and give Americans what they voted for, they wait for any opportunity to stick the knife in.
(9) One by one, they all end up like Bill Kristol and The Weekly Standard, wrecked upon the rocks.

The world has changed. We're not going back.
(10) Orrin Hatch is a great example of someone who has supported Trump on every vote that really matters, while still saying dumb stuff about tariffs.

Susan Collins saved the Kavanaugh confirmation and infinitely more than that, in the bigger picture.
(11) Marco Rubio has been great on many issues, like Cuba, and speaking up in the post-midterms Broward County mess. But now he wants to slam Saudi Arabia for "contributing" to the conflict in Yemen. Wake up, Little Marco. Read a book.
(23) So yeah, I try very hard to be consistent across my tweets about individual GOP politicians & the need to support them to keep out Democrats. I'm going to call them idiots when they are idiots, too. Hopefully the reasons for this will be clear.
(24) Thank you @LoversWin for mentioning this video and @sharonrobert99 for finding it. Very instructive.

(25) There's also this analysis of body language at the funeral for that senator...…
