“The Congresswoman wants to make clear that she is not launching anything. This was an early planning proposal and nothing was agreed to or approved,” Dyer told CNN…

MTG, sticking to her principles, right up until the moment she realizes that she’s gone too far for some of her idiot contributors and that her fundraising will suffer.

Let’s not forget that she wished to revive the architecture of Albert Speer and many of the ideals of the state that it was part.
I suspect she gave up when she couldn’t find any big names to recreate Leni Reifenstahl’s work in Triumph of the Will.

I’m so jaundiced now to believe the launch of this caucus wasn’t canceled because the majority of Republicans don’t believe in that repugnant ideology, but because they realize it’s a bridge too far at this time, and fear of recriminations, especially corporate donors. Now that the idea has been floated, it likely comes back at a later time.

That’s OK, Gosar and Gohmert will carry it on. If they can remember how to spell Anglo-Saxon.

So she’s not so brave when she can’t brandish her guns in the House? None of the other GOP cowards wanted to join her and put targets on their backs? Note that Hawley and Cruz haven’t established a similar caucus in the Senate either.

The bloody January insurrection has cast a damning shadow over the entire party. Has even forced W to stand up for migrants as a way to salvage the party’s reputation.

I’m still trying to figure out how tantric sex evolved from Anglo-Saxon culture. She is still into that, isn’t she? And do I ask the gym guy, the pool guy, or a 17 year old? Can’t keep all these Republican sex scandals straight.

I’m thrilled Greene has backed down but can we please stop pretending anyone in the GOP cares what Liz Cheney or Adam Kinzinger think about anything.

I can’t imagine Liz will be reelected and I think Democrats will have a real chance to flip Kinzinger’s seat.

…successfully.”

Messaging fail. Too overt for other Republicans to plausibly ignore or feign ignorance of.

Not to worry – the marketing people are on the case and will be out with a softer, more ‘mainstream’ version of the Nativist platform.
