Somebody's Gonna Have To Explain It To Me

 Tailgunner Joe McCarthy 1950-1954

Nixon's contacts with Vietnam to stall peace talks in 1968 

Watergate 1972-1974

Iran-Contra 1981-1986

Torture, WMD, Iraq 2003-2009

Insurrection and fake electors scandal 2020-2022

Every major political scandal of my lifetime (or, granted, in the case of McCarthy, just before) has involved Republicans in Congress or in the White House.

So how is it that the GOP of Trump is such a break from the GOP of my lifetime?
