Yeah, no. Republicans didn't "soul-search" when the GOP lost in 2008 or 2012. They did double-down on their racism, thumbscrews and false promises, though. They did double-down on plans to screw Americans and tell them to beg for more, the ungrateful little turds.
I just don't feel like there is a lot that needs to be said here. After #Electiongeddon2016, and millions of Americans stared at themselves in the mirror and asked "Oh, fuck, what have we done!?" and now, months later, it turns out that everything is worse than possibly expected from President Trump and the GOP, and - this is the kicker - the Faithful Flock, who - it turns out - are just as arrogant, self-centered, and self-delusional as we always knew they were. Amazing.
