      worth your read

      Amongst all the satire in the Cove, intentional and otherwise, this is a real issue and an interesting one at that. The author is Republicans for Rule of Law/Bulwark (the Kristol connection), so anti-Trump GOP

      This is from the article itself:

      “During the campaign, Joe Biden framed the November election as a “battle for the soul of America,” and so it was. But a battle is not the war. The toxicity that brought us to the events of Jan. 6 is still out there and has a home in the Republican Party. In a recent poll, about 60% of Republicans said they believed the election had been “stolen” from Donald Trump.

      This isn’t sustainable. Democracy cannot survive if only one party is devoted to it. As democrats — note the small “d” — we all need to make a special effort to encourage the forces of democracy wherever we find them.

      As it happens, we now have an opportunity to do just that.”

      The opportunity of the Special Election in Texas where there is a hardcore anti-Trump GOP. Mike Wood, running against other Trump GOP.

      and here’s the key part:

      “Does Wood’s quixotic campaign have a chance? Yes.”

      “But the real key to Wood’s victory will be whether Democrats choose to support him. And they should. The dividing line in American politics is no longer Republican/Democrat or even progressive/conservative. In post-Jan. 6 America, the dividing line is between those who are defending American democracy and those who are trying to subvert it. So if you live in the 6th Texas Congressional District, vote for Michael Wood on May 1, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat. If you live in America, donate to his campaign.

      Democrats are fond of saying that Republicans need to clean up their own mess, and that’s true. But this doesn’t mean that democrats of whatever political persuasion ought to be idle bystanders. Michael Wood is fighting for American democracy — not just for Republicans, but for all of us. Don’t let him fight alone.

      “(CNN)West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin endorsed Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Friday, bucking his own Democratic party and underscoring Murkowski’s reputation as one of the few Republican moderates left in the Senate.

      “I’ve met a lot of good people in Alaska, they know when they’ve got the real deal. And they see the person that basically is bringing both sides together, trying to look for the best interest,” Manchin told Politico in a joint interview with Murkowski. “People understand that they have a person that understands Alaska and has Alaska in her blood and in every part of her veins and every morsel of her body.”
