Republican integrity

I don't generally like being swept up in political opinions in a time when opinions tend to drown out serious national discussions (health care, infrastructure, jobs, taxes, aid to Puerto Rico, wildfires ... you know, the stuff the politicians might actually do something about), but the following column by Dana Milbank struck me as a pretty good laundry list of the sort of political chaff blurring latter-day vision potential.
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee [Devin Nunes] told donors that “most” Republicans are on board with impeaching Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, according to a recording broadcast this week by MSNBC. They just don’t have time “right before the election.” Hence the need to retain a GOP majority.
Rosenstein must have done something truly and utterly horrible, because these guys don’t impeach just anybody. In fact, they impeach nobody. Until now they hadn’t given a moment’s thought to impeaching a single member of the Trump administration:....
The list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Such is the nature of our times.

  1. Republican Integrity. Not!
    Not anymore.

    From the WaPo article:

    “Nunes himself is battling allegations that he got favorable terms on a winery investment and used political contributions to pay for basketball tickets and Las Vegas trips.”

    Wake Up Sheeple!
