I say tomato, they say terrorist attack

tomatoAnd scurry back into their hidey-holes.

If there wasn’t so much at stake, this would be hilarious. It’s fun watching full-grown men run away from folks they were elected to serve. Of course, to hear them tell it, anyone who voices opposition to their knuckle-dragging agenda is part of a paid and orchestrated group.

Bullshit.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tx), is afraid to hold town hall meetings with his constituents because they’re steamed. He hides behind the 2011 shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords as his excuse. In response, she told the GOP to ‘have some courage.’ Fat chance.

Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va) is ducking girls because ‘the women are in my grill no matter where I go.’ He very reluctantly held his town hall in a tiny rural community an hour away from where most constituents reside. They showed up, anyway, in droves, to complain about the repeal of the ACA, immigration, etc. His lame responses — ‘Obamacare has just collapsed’ — only left them more disgusted.

Representative Justin Humphrey of the Oklahoma state legislature, another Republican throwback to Neolithic days, defines pregnant women as ‘hosts.’  He introduced legislation which would require women to get written permission from male sex partners before seeking an abortion. Well, hmm, if the woman is merely a host, what does that make the man? A sperm donor?

Most craven of all, Republican lawmakers in 17 states are trying to curb protesting. They don’t want us blocking highways or wearing masks while protesting. But they’d like to indemnify drivers who strike protesters and, in one case, seize the assets of anyone involved in protests that turn violent.

The lunatic in the White House, meanwhile, has surrounded himself with white supremacists and conspiracy theorists; prolific liars, social outcasts, and a coterie of babysitters to flatter and soothe his massive ego. He hides his tax returns, as well as his financial ties to Russia, but proudly displays his childish petulance and disturbing ignorance on a regular basis.

This isn’t a government, it’s a pissing contest. But what politicians seem to forget is, there will be other elections —  unless they repeal that, too, and don’t put it past them.

        1. Surely, the shady Russia connections will undo him before he does more damage. If they’d stop dragging their feet and start an honest, legitimate investigation …

          1. What are they so afraid of? The man is an outright lunatic and a danger to society, but they all just look the other way. There’s something really screwy about this entire situation.

          2. I’m watching from UK, so I don’t have the same instinct for the political situation as you will have, but it looks as though the GOP will just support him as one of their own almost regardless of what he does…I say almost, because I think he will overreach himself eventually, but by then who knows what damage will have been done?
