In the savannah ecosystem there is found a fine analogy to the gop.
When a lion has dug its claws into some prey, there is a moment lasting a few seconds when the prey attempts to struggle out of it’s captors talons.
The thing is, prey is too stupid to realize that it was all over the minute the lion caught up with it!
In just the same way Republicans are too stupid to realize they’ve lost.
In fact, it has pretty much been over for republicans since ~2008.
Everything you’ve done since has been nothing but a death struggle.
