When Mitt Romney comes off sounding like the voice of reason you know there's little hope for the Republican Party.
It's just a matter of time before they drop the Republican sobriquet and adopt a new one, Trumplican Party.
Some have already done that.
Trump has little to fear from Romney's criticism. He's not going to suddenly infuse steel into lawmakers spines and get them to stand up to Trump...and Trump knows that.
We already knew Trump was a turkey (known for having a little brain) who gets his instructions from the Matt Drudge Report, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News.
So it was no surprise when that alt-right alliance persuaded him to shit can a bipartisan agreement - blindsiding both parties and partially shutting down the government.
As Democrats take over the house today their priority is to reopen those government agencies that fell victim to Trump's political chicken approach to governing.
One way, or the other, this country is going to get back on track...in spite of Trump's attempts to divide us and defy America's values and morals.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
