Republicans may find that their biggest problem isn’t just what they did, but how they did it. It was mean, angry and vengeful.
They fit right in with the face of the Republican Party nationally. In Washington, they are mean, angry obstructionists. In Raleigh, a mean, angry wrecking crew. Angry old white men lashing out at mothers, teachers and women, not to mention minorities, young people, older people, rural people, city people, gay people, sick people, not-rich people, you name it.
Republicans drew districts and passed a voter-suppression law to keep those people in their place. But Americans have this way of rising up when they’re told to sit down and shut up.
Even Republicans here worry about the overreach. They stay silent because they want to taste the fruits of victory.
But the way they’re going, the may be out of power for another 100 years.
