WORD FOR THE DAY: VICHYITE
Greetings. I am a voting constituent in rural west Texas. Gosh. I really need to get on with my exciting day in contagion isolation but I just can’t get away from the fallout from yesterday’s presidential parody. I just had to write again after reading George Will’s latest excoriation of current ‘conservatism.’ Yowzer. The man knows his way around the written word. Although I’m pretty sure a lot of Trump ‘conservatives’ would be heading for a dictionary. But I expect you and yours in the Senate get the gist loud and clear. Because I enjoyed the read so much, I just had to revisit it in my letter to my elected officials. So here we go... “We cannot know all the measures necessary to restore the nation's domestic health and international standing, but we know the first step: Senate Republicans must be routed, as condign punishment for their Vichyite collaboration, leaving the Republican remnant to wonder: Was it sensible to sacrifice dignity, such as it ever was, and to shed principles, if convictions so easily jettisoned could be dignified as principles, for ... what? Praying people should pray, and all others should hope: May I never crave anything as much as these people crave membership in the world's most risible deliberative body." And: “Voters must dispatch his congressional enablers, especially the senators who still gambol around his ankles with a canine hunger for petting." Proven by the quick leap to the mic to be first in line to gain the prez’s praise... "You can characterize it the way you want, but obviously the President is free to go where he wants and to hold up a Bible if he wants," Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republican in the chamber, told CNN's Manu Raju Tuesday morning. Limp. It’s gotta be painful trying to straddle that fence. Maybe it’s time to join the better lights of your party.
