GOP Autopsy, Redux

Will anyone claim the body?

The Hill:

“Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) is calling on incoming House GOP campaigns chief Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) and the rest of the leadership team to conduct an autopsy to find out what went wrong for Republicans in the disastrous 2018 midterms.

“In a “Dear Colleague” letter obtained by The Hill, Stefanik and other allies wrote Monday that the “disappointing results” of the November election “require an honest, transparent assessment of the structural operations and decision-making process that led to our party losing an historic number of seats.”

I’m guessing that Stefanik lost them at “honest.”

Anyway, the Republicans are not interested in burying their dead, they want to have lightening strike it and bring it back to life.

I wouldn’t put any Quatloos on this.

    It would be more accurate to call it a necropsy.

    • Actually it’s kind of more akin to a forensic anthropologist examining a sack of bones, now.

      And if the report doesn’t come to the conclusion ‘We’ve been getting too high on our own supply” and have the last 5 minutes of Scarface as a video reminder of that, it’s not honest at all.

      I eagerly await the political punditocracy to confidently state that the “GOP needs to eschew xenophobia, focus on the middle class more, and move to the left as a bipartisan overture to the Democra…”


      I’m sorry, just couldn’t get that out with a straight face.

      Obviously the political punditocracy will warn the Dems not to take advantage of winning, but to promptly move to the right to capture the all-important Cletus vote that so animated the Great GOP Victory of 2018.

    • Since this seems like a masturbatory exercise, I’d put it somewhere between necrophagy and necrophilia.

    They did this autopsy after the 2012 election and decided they needed to reach out mpore to minorities. After a pause, the party leaders started laughing uproariously. If the GOP tried to become more diverse they would cease being Republicans. It’s that simple.

    Autopsies are performed solely on HUMAN cadavers. Dissection and investigation on animals and monsters is called Necropsy.

    Gratuities and Noblesse Oblige (in the form of small, non-sequential, unmarked bills,) will soon be forthcoming, TG, so I fully expect a 1/32 of 1% increase in my Final Grade. And when (if) I finally graduate, do I get a shiny certificate attesting to my BS?

    Performing an autopsy on an 18yo corpse is sort of redundant anyway.

    The Goopers might want to change but not if it means losing the David Duke vote.
