Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Just when it seemed Arizona Republicans couldn't make more of a spectacle, they found another way. As the party hardens around its fealty to former President Donald Trump, the GOP is filling up its midterm ballot with a roster of conspiracy theorists and extremists that could threaten the party's prospects in a state that's drifted leftward in recent elections. The latest of those candidates is Ron Watkins, a celebrity in the QAnon conspiracy world suspected of being Q, who announced his plans to run for Congress last week.

It isn't just that Watkins embraces the baseless claim that the November election was stolen. It's that an entire ticket is running on that falsehood now. The state's congressional delegation features Rep. Paul Gosar, who spoke earlier this year at a conference organized by a white nationalist, and Rep. Andy Biggs, who falsely maintains "we don't know" who won the presidential election in Arizona.

State Rep. Mark Finchem, one of the chief proponents of the discredited post-election ballot review in Arizona, has been endorsed by Trump in his bid for secretary of state. And Kari Lake, the former TV anchor who has become a frontrunner for governor, still insists Trump carried the state and said recently that she would not have certified the 2020 election.

GOP leadership is gasping in a self-induced coma of non-existent leadership while the money machine ventilator makes them look like they're still alive.

If none of Trump's planted stooges win are we going to suffer through another audit for Fraud? Death threats? Riots? Lawsuits? and all the other mayhem and chaos that follows Trump everywhere he goes.

"It must a form of mass psychosis. Seriously."


Or when Arizona turned Blue for Biden, it scared the bejebus out of the GOP. Now they're throwing the kitchen sink at the problem. That doesn't mean they're going to succeed. It only means they're running scared . . . and pushing the panic button.

I'm going to trust that Arizona is sick and tired of all they've been through with the Republican's ridiculous shenanigan's since 2020 and give them all the ol' heave-ho.
