Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas.
Winding up the day. Settling in to watch democracy in action across the nation on my TV. But one last observation before I let y’all go.
Good for one of your GOP colleagues. A woman of course. A woman who possesses all of the testicular courage you and yours lack. Senator Murkowski. Who had the cojones to say:
"When I saw General Mattis' comments yesterday I felt like perhaps we are getting to a point where we can be more honest with the concerns that we might hold internally and have the courage of our own convictions to speak up."
Wow. She’s got misplaced faith in you guys huh?
"It's General Mattis' opinion, he's free to express it," Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson told CNN.
"It's just politically fashionable to blame Trump for everything -- and I'm not buying it," said South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
"I haven't read it," said Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman of the Mattis statement.
Hmmmm...and then these blasts from the past:
"I think he's a kook," Graham said of Trump in 2016. "I think he's crazy. I think he's unfit for office."
"Donald Trump is a delusional narcissist and an orange-faced windbag," Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said in 2016.
"Whatever lie he's telling, at that minute he believes it ... the man is utterly amoral," Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said of Trump in 2016.
I wonder where those guys went? Oh. Right. Spanked and neutered.
Lastly: “History very rarely looks back kindly on those who put personal political gain and ambition over doing what they know is right.”
