From a Democrat:
Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) is leaving the party and becoming a Republican over the issue of impeachment, which he has long been opposed to.
Van Drew told CNN earlier this month that Democrats should “be careful what [they] wish for” because impeachment “is tearing the nation apart.”
Hate to tell you this, Jeff old cock, but your ex-buddies started the tearing a long time before impeachment was even mentioned. Think back to labeling amiable people such as G.W. Bush and even Mitt Romney as “Hitler” and “fascist” — and not once being rebuked by party leadership for doing so — and I think you’ll see who started all this, and when.
Just don’t be surprised if in November, your newly-adopted party’s leader wins 45 states and you lose your seat. (Think: Stalin’s opinion of Trotsky, and you’ll get an idea of your party’s reaction. Remember: Marxists always reserve their greatest hatred for people whom they call “counter-revolutionaries”, i.e. party members who dare to go against the Party.)
