Tom Cotton Gives the Republican Party Some Advice They Had Better Not Ignore

The presidential race is still up in the air, with the media doing their best to invent stupidity like “the office of the president-elect” in order to prematurely declare Joe Biden victorious. While it’s possible, perhaps even probable, he may end up being sworn in this coming January, the counting and challenges are not finished nor has a winner been officially declared, no matter how much Chris Wallace and company want it to be so.

Regardless, the fight is already on about what the Republican Party will become over the next several years. Will there be a movement to backtrack to a Bush-esque vision, or will the GOP actually learn from the Trump era?

On that topic, Tom Cotton offered some advice every Republican should heed.
 

Unfortunately, there’s a very clear movement building on the right that wants to do exactly that. While it’s certainly a minority, that movement is filled with many of the same establishment conservative voices that thought they had everything figured out in the decade preceding Trump’s rise. I’m not talking about The Lincoln Project or The Bulwark here. I’m talking about current, mainstream voices that tend to operate in good faith but are still perplexed by “Trumpism.” Any assertion that some aspects of Trump’s populism are actually good for the nation (and the party) causes them to revert to conservative Mad Libs, breathlessly spazzing out on buzzwords while avoiding any real discussion of what the GOP got wrong for so long. They desperately seek a return to the “normalcy” of Mitt Romney compared to what the party currently is.
