In both cases it's a matter of patience and giving them enough rope to hang themselves. Interesting note on hangings...rope length was an important calculation for hangmen. Too short and the hangee dangled there kicking their legs as they strangled. Too long and it ripped their heads right off and made an awful mess. When the Republicans finally hit bottom in 2020 it's gonna be one of the messy ones.
