GOP strategist Scott Reed, being quoted in the NYT, pretty much says it all:
“The real question for Republicans in Washington is how low can you go, because we are approaching a level of ridiculousness,” said Mr. Reed, sounding exasperated in an interview on Tuesday morning.
“You can’t make this stuff up. And the impact this is having on the grass-roots around the country is devastating.
Republicans think the governing class in Washington are a bunch of buffoons who have total disregard for the principles of the party, the law of the land and the future of the country.”
