Others may see insurrection and sedition and wrap themselves in the silly bubble wrap of our tiresome partisan politics. My mental visual is of the luckily vaccinated Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, the other ancients, and “The Squad,” etc., all high-tailing it out the back of the Capitol into their taxpayer-provided limos and on to their favorite Georgetown watering holes to be solicitously assuaged by K Street lobbyists until order could be restored. Just another day of our non-governing governance.
The Democrats are driving the national station wagon now, and we’ll see how they do. My guess? They’ll steer us right back into the ditch — and I’m a lifelong Democrat. In the meantime, whatever happen to that killer plague?
