It is rare that the Sunday article deals with more than one event. Today I’m citing three which I believe have one “common denominator” (albeit of greatly different degrees). That common denominator is acting poorly.
I found it somewhat puzzling that Republican Senators could have voted to confirm credibly accused child rapist Brett Kavanagh to the Supreme Court on October 6, 2018 and yet have refused to vote to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson for the same position on April 7, 2022 largely because they felt she had been too soft in her sentencing of possessors of child pornography even after her sentences proved to be in line with common judicial practice and often harsher than the prosecution has asked for. Well 37 of them did and that number would have been 38 if one actually came to work on a Saturday. Hey, it was only a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court on the line.
Why do so many Republican office holders stay loyal to Trump? That question has perplexed me for some time and I’d like to explore it today.
Most often the subject of the Sunday article is the biggest political story of the week just passed. This week that is far from the case. It’s my site and my article so I decided to take a point of personal privilege and write about something much, much less important but that I care about.
At the present time the two biggest threats to America and democracy are Russia and the Republican Party. Both are currently controlled by people who are stupid and scared. Therefore, like cornered rabid animals they are dangerous!
