PostTexas Appeal to the US Supreme Court (Leo Goldberger, USA, 12/12/20 1:30 pm)
I was feeling quite celebratory at the prospect of "anybody but Trump Democratic election" winning the day, when the Trumpians in recent days have mounted the outrageous Supreme Court challenge of Biden's clear win.
The challenge, spearheaded by the criminally indicted Texas Attorney General and 17 other states' AGs and endorsed by some 90 congressional members, is quite shocking! While one can only imagine that the Court will dismiss the suit in some well-chosen few words, it is nevertheless a most troublesome indication of the serious attack on our democracy. It quite clearly suggests that our country is entering a period of a fundamental ideological split, between our Democratic Party and God knows what else to call the Trumpian "Republicans"--certainly not Traditional Republicans. Simply "Trumpians"?
JE comments: My apologies to Leo Goldberger; I sat on this post too long and in the meantime the news turned stale. The US Supreme Court has now rejected the Texas petition. Still, I'd like to address Leo's other question: will we see a split in the Republican party, between the Trumpians and the traditional wing? Or put in another way, will Trumpism survive as a political movement after Trump?
