In a recent post, Donna remarked that Kristen Sinema was unique in how she changed politically. At the time, I couldn't think of another example like Sinema's political shift. I just though of one who possibly tops her in cravenness

J.D. Vance Converted to Trumpism. The “Hillbilly Elegy” author is the Trump-endorsed Senate candidate in Ohio. Vance has walked back his previous criticism of Donald Trump and reversed arguments that the white working class bears responsibility for its problems. Vance had called Mr. Trump “cultural heroin” and a demagogue leading “the white working class to a very dark place.”

    One of the morning shows did a feature on the Ohio GOP Primary. Vance said. "Well, yeah, but Trump turned out to be such a good President I've completely changed his mind on him."

    HILLBILLY ELEGY is on my reading list and will stay there if Vance wins the primary.

    Have you read it?

    From Wikipedia:

    During the 2016 election, Vance was critical of Republican Party nominee Donald Trump. In a column in USA Today in February 2016, Vance wrote "Trump's actual policy proposals, such as they are, range from immoral to absurd."[33] In October 2016, he described Trump as "reprehensible" in a post on Twitter.[34] He also stated his intentions to vote for independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin.[34] Vance later deleted these posts from his Twitter account and, in July 2021, apologized for his criticism of Trump, ahead of his candidacy for United States Senate. He reversed his earlier statements on Trump, saying that he thought Trump was a good president and expressing regret about his statements during the 2016 election.[34] Vance visited Mar-a-Lago to meet with former President Donald Trump, alongside Peter Thiel, ahead of an official announcement.[35]

    LOL! He's pulling a Lindsey Graham! IOW, to these shameless SOBs, why fight Trump when you can use him to get or retain a sweet, cushy Senate gig?
