The Morning Briefing: It's Time to Purge the 'Pelosi Republicans'

Top O’ the Briefing

The Republican Party Needs a Good Scrubbing

Happy Tuesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Yeah, that’s probably garlic you’re smelling.

During last week’s “Five O’Clock Somewhere” VIP Gold Live chat with my friends Stephen Green and Bryan Preston, I went on a mini-diatribe about the tendency of some of my conservative friends to not give second chances to politicians. That may have sounded weird coming from me since I can be a bit rigid regarding Washington types. One lawmaker I did give a second chance is House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). I was a fan of McCarthy’s when he first got into office but then he lost me — and a lot of other conservatives — during the post-Boehner era that led to Paul Ryan being Speaker of the House.

I don’t expect politicians to be perfect, so I like the ones who can learn from their mistakes. McCarthy is one of those, or at least he seems to be at the moment. I never discount the possibility that any politician might disappoint me before I finish a sentence praising him or her. For the moment, McCarthy is back on my good list.

Yesterday, McCarthy served up a zinger that should keep him there a while longer.

Matt has the story:

Prior to an event in the White House Rose Garden, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was asked by a reporter about the Republican House members who have decided to participate in the January 6 Inquisition.

“Some Republicans have been saying that—”

“Some Republicans?” McCarthy said with a chuckle.

“—that the GOP should play ball on this Select Committee—”

“Really?” McCarthy replied. “Who was that? Adam and Liz? Aren’t they, like, Pelosi Republicans?”

That’s the perfect description of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, who have been busy wagging their tails like trained dogs for Nancy Pelosi and her sham Jan. 6 kabuki theater. The Democrats and their flying monkeys in the media have been talking a lot this year about the Big Lie. The real big lie is the nonsense about Jan. 6, 2021, being an insurrection that was caused by President Trump, neither of which is true. Republicans feeding that lie deserve to be marginalized, weakened, and eventually replaced. These guys don’t deserve a second chance. They’re too far on the dark side for a shot at redemption.

Kinzinger and Cheney have become odious backstabbers who are aiding and abetting Pelosi’s unhinged corruption, all for a little attention. They’re being hailed as “principled” by a press corps that would have a fatal allergic reaction if it came within a mile of the real definition of the word. It’s like having a Mexican drug cartel as the only group that praises your business model.

Kudos to McCarthy for being dismissive of the sellouts and for not playing along with Granny Boxwine’s lunacy. That’s leadership.
