SPECIAL NOTICE – Link To Ruth Marcus’ Op-Ed

Sometimes someone else simply does something you did better and/or more completely. That is the case with Ruth Marcus’ op-ed in the Washington Post entitled, These Republicans may not be capable of shame, but you should know who they are, which was posted to the online edition on the evening of Friday, December 11, 2020.

Here is a link to it. https://washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/12/11/these-republicans-may-not-be-capable-shame-you-should-know-who-they-are/.

In it she identifies each of the 18 state AGs and the 126 Republican members of the House of Representatives who signed on to the amicus brief to support Donald Trump’s unsuccessful attempt to nullify the votes of millions of Americans via the Supreme Court.


I just added Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right by  Arlie Russell Hochschild and Supreme Ambition: Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover to the Recommended Reading List.

Strangers is the best of a series of books I have read on understanding the Trump voter.  Hochschild is a sociologist who spent years on the Cal-Berkley faculty.  Her training and professionalism shows!

Marcus did so much more than just chronical the Kavanaugh confirmation.    The behind the scenes looks and historical tidbits she outlines are priceless.
