What’s interesting: The senator is “unnamed”. Why? Why would this Senator have to keep his name from appearing with his comments calling for reflection about what sort of rhetoric is “too far”?

Because he’ll be dismissed as a RINO if he speaks openly, which is pathetic.

He fears a primary challenge.

He fears a primary challenge.

It’s a reasonable fear, as evidenced to what happened to Sen. Bennett.

Perhaps he wants to be seen as neutral when the more traditional Republican senators clash with the fire-eaters, as will undoubtedly happen.

Perhaps freetoken is correct, that he fears a primary challenge, or at least the threat.

Or perhaps he is just a chicken.

Stockholm syndrome variant, publicly they dare not speak out against that which they’ve unleashed. The GOP has become kidnapped by their own demon of fear, are privately afraid of what they created but now cannot control.

These town halls and cable TV and talk radio, everybody’s trying to outdo each other.”

They’ve always been trying to outdo each other, it’s just that our media is now pervasive and interactive, it’s not broadcasting, it’s narrowcasting

so the outdoing and the escalation happens at a faster rate

Shit, we’ve seen the backlash against the sheriff. Can’t imagine how this guy would be treated if he spoke by name. My bet is it’s someone who already is on thin ice with the nutters and is up for reelection this coming year.

You know what I’d like to see?

An elected Republican who will come out and say he’d rather lose an election than quietly acquiesce to the lunatic fringe. An elected Republican who’ll say that the vitriol has gone too far and needs to be dialed back.

A politician of principle.

I won’t be holding my breath.
