Any thoughts on the Heritage Foundation's MAGA takeover bullshit?

There isn't much to be done about the grumpy old Fox watching crowd. They are voting Republican until they die and are going to LOUDLY complain about everything while doing it. Polls and such can say what they want but the reality is that barring a massive demographic shift in the country, each party can pretty much anticipate most of the votes they get.

Most people already know who they are willing to vote for, some just aren't sure if they are willing to go out and actually vote for them. What hurts the Democrats is voter enthusiasm more than anything, because the previously mentioned crazy old Republicans will ALWAYS vote straight ticket while we Democrats argue over if Biden deserves a vote because of Israel, Ukraine, the economy, housing, immigration, etc.
So what you're saying is: We shouldn't fret about Project 25 unless biden fucks up hilariously badly in some way next year, the chuds alone will never get trump across the finish line?

Because trumpism thoroughly captured the party, the only people left calling the shots are dysfunctional radical ideologues who control the party apparatus and have lost almost any way to competently run it on their own. The whole ecosystem of think tanks and strategic alliances that ran things is stripped bare, and the "old guard" that had strategic competency (or the intent on governing a republic) are just shoveled off into irrelevance.

What have they earned for the trouble? Profoundly demographically alienating themselves to every generational cohort younger than boomers, increasing in severity with every step down to zennials. Commitment to absolute political poison, like pro-life forced birtherism, anti-vaccine hysteria, climate change denialism, and thoroughly deranged elimination of firearms regulation in an age of constant school and mass shootings. This is the stuff that sticks to them over decades

Though, as usual, the real test of it is if the structure of the republic can survive the systems they moved forward as hard as they could to permanently enshrine them as minority rulership.

If we CAN, then there are several state-level GOP organizations which act as an early model of how badly things can fall apart for them.
So how would you rate the efficacy of the Heritage Foundation on a scale of 1-10?
