Why we did it : a travelogue from the Republican road to Hell / Tim Miller.
"An account of a former Republican political activist's horror as the party he loves becomes the party of Trump"-- Provided by publisher.
Why did normal people go along with the worst of Trumpism? Miller, one of the strategists behind the 2012 RNC 'autopsy', reflects on both his own past work for the Republicans and the contortions of his former peers in the conservative establishment. As a gay man, Miller justified becoming a hit man for homophobes, and diagrams the delusional stories GOP operatives tell themselves so that they can sleep at night. The result is a darkly satirical warning that all the narcissistic excuses that got us to this place still thrive within the Republican Party. -- adapted from jacket
