Republicans pouncing is so old news.
The new hotness? Republicans preparing to pounce:
With some centrist House Dems now balking at their leadership’s bid to try to overturn a state-certified House election in Iowa, Republicans are preparing to pounce https://t.co/lIR2YkekrN

Wow, Politico. Republicans must be exhausted!
Now it's not just that Republicans pounce — they also *prepare* to pounce! https://t.co/QLsYE0Rvjz

Are you sure they're not preparing to seize on it?

Nope, not this time. This is strictly a must-pounce situation:
Republicans are “preparing to pounce” if the Democratic House overturns an election that has been certified. It fascinates me that the press is willing to add the most bizarre linguistic innovations into its stylebooks when pressured, but cannot stop using the “pounce” framing. pic.twitter.com/jndypfnTOl

Ah yes… the Prepared To Pounce strategy.
Not to be confused with the Proactive Pouncing strategy….. or the Swiftly Seize Upon strategy.

“Preparing to Pounce” made me giggle, however… they’re legit trying to overturn an election.
Something we’ve heard will destroy democracy, end of civilization, etc, etc.
