Ace of Spades this morning reminds us that there are multiple phases to a coup.
Phase 1: Get the New Guy in behind the big desk.
Phase 2: Quickly arrest and/or execute the Former Occupant and cancel as many as his closest people as possible. Get them out of circulation and out of the news.
Phase 3: Arrest or cancel anyone in your own party who might be insufficiently enthusiastic about the New Guys reforms. Get them out of circulation and out of the news.
Phase 2 is rolling merrily along, and phase 3 is now beginning. Good. The sooner the revolutionaries start beheading their own, the sooner the farce will be over. The national GOP says it's planning a push for more transparency in the election process. Frankly I think that horse has left the barn and founded a new herd of its own, but good luck with that.
