It's more complex than that. I posit that the Frankenstein is the now rabid, radicalized base. Recall how a rally crowd booed at Trump for having the temerity to suggest to think about getting vaccinated, and the orange sphincter pedaled back.

The Reich wing media machine has to cater to--even compete for--those many feverishly swiveling eyeballs, which can only have the spiraling madness perpetuate.

A beast has been unleashed upon the land. And the country as a whole is asleep while this restive monster broods and froths.

But what else can we expect in a nation where God 'n Guns are practically inseparable?
