The Republican Party has gotten used to the misinformation and baseless claims going on six years after Donald Trump first announced his bid for the presidency. It knew that QAnon had been infecting its political base for years and, last year, understood that the rise of QAnon-embracing Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) in Georgia’s 14th Congressional District was a problem. Axios has new reporting to that end, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) even calling her primary opponent and acknowledging the risk her election posed.

They’ve gotten so used to living with dysfunction they are no longer able to fix it.
