Veto Corleone

Veto Corleone

In an irony of ironies, Senator Pat Toomey called Congress "completely dysfunctional" while speaking to Fox News on Wednesday. It wasn't the first time he's maligned America's legislature in those terms over the years, and his characterization of Capitol Hill is, of course, "completely" correct. But Toomey's criticism came across as off-putting considering it was his last minute attempt to inject what some decried as superfluous language into the latest virus relief package that very nearly ca

A large part of the Republican party will finally be empowered to move away from Trump. The cowards never understood that if they had stood together and stood up to the bully, he would have been chased from the playground. As a result of their failure, they have spent the past four years letting him steal their lunch money and slap their ears and give them wedgies. Finally, a few brave kids (Republican and Democratic local and state election officials, state and federal judges) stood up to the bully, and he had to back down. And now, as the bully slinks off of the playground, cursing and threatening and crying, finally, the rest of the cowardly kids will come out and–carefully–stand up to him.

    1. I hope you are correct that it is over However the most powerful job in the world is in the hands of a madman and he has millions of supporters who by most accounts are out of touch with reality. Many of which are well armed that could at least theoretically crate more mayhem than we have seen in our lifetimes. Throw in recent Russian hacks of our security apparatus, are we deluding ourselves how dangerous this situation really is?
