    I wouldn’t. If you think the “own the libs” mindset is scary now, just look how people have cheered his string of blatantly fascist acts over the last few months. 
    I cheer Desantis mostly because tRump will unleash the fury on him as soon as he indicates he's in the running. No way those two fucksticks run on the same ticket. Desantis likely knows (and is being advised) that he needs to break from tRump and when that happens it will be glorious.

    The GOP might have a victory party this year but I think they will divide in 2024 between tRump and whomever is the nominee.....which isn't going to be tRump.

    Rogan is a far right extremist who hates the dems. 

    But rds is much smarter than trump and could think of many ways to crunch the dems and derail stuff like renewable energy. And he'd have much better coattails than rump.
    I don't ever see Rogan as a far right extremist.  That is a bit much.

    Agree…..a smarter Trump is extremely dangerous.  I’m hoping that Liz Cheney will decide to run, that way if the reps win again she is tolerable and at least she hates trump.  Most are saying she won’t get the nomination over trump though.

    What’s more dangerous, a smarter POOTWH or a dick, like Deathsantis? From WaPo.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is having a moment. Pundits are suggesting that the Jan. 6 hearings, by exposing former president Donald Trump’s complicity in a coup attempt, will redound to DeSantis’s benefit in 2024. Already, a poll in New Hampshire shows DeSantis topping Trump. The question, from the standpoint of those of us who have a sentimental attachment to American democracy, is which man is a bigger threat to the republic? I found myself grappling with that issue as I read a long and enlightening profile of DeSantis by Dexter Filkins in the New Yorker.

    Filkins notes that, “while Trump, with his lazy, Barnumesque persona, projects a fundamental lack of seriousness, DeSantis has an intense work ethic, a formidable intelligence, and a granular understanding of policy. Articulate and fast on his feet, he has been described as Trump with a brain.” But do we really want a president who will work harder and more intelligently to implement a Trumpian agenda? Is it really better to have a president who is relentlessly focused on right-wing bugaboos such as critical race theory, transgender athletes, undocumented immigrants and “woke corporations” rather than one who is easily distracted into braggadocio about his golf game or his flooring?

    Actually, the more I read about DeSantis, the more he reminds me not of Trump but of another disgraced Republican president. One of DeSantis’s Yale baseball teammates told Filkins he is really “smart” but deficient in interpersonal skills: “He has always loved embarrassing and humiliating people. I’m speaking for others — he was the biggest d---k we knew.” A former House colleague said of DeSantis: “He’s a little reclusive, a bit of an odd duck … but he’s just incredibly disciplined.”

    Rogan is far from far right, or extreme. I'd put him in more of a libertarian bucket than anything. 
    I think I'll move to Australia

    I do think trump would be less inclined to do everything the GOP wants.  He likes to come up with his own stupid ideas….experimenting with disinfectant to cure covid, instigating a violent crowd to storm the capital.  But you’re right - DeSantis would be the end of the country for sure. Plus, he could be president for 8 years in a row, perfect amount of time to destroy an entire country.
