I’m both pessimistic and optimistic in this regard. Pessimistic because I think tax reform will end up sabotaged in the senate — between McCain, Corker, Flake, Murkowski and Collins, the GOP will bleed enough votes to scupper the deal.

I compare what’s going on in the GOP now to the political equivalent to what Lincoln had to contend with at the beginning of the Civil War — just like Lincoln had to cycle through a whole host of deadbeat generals before he settled on Grant and Sherman, the GOP now has to just keep its head above water while it purges the weak-sisters and Quislings in its ranks.
