Actions by Cheney, Sasse, represent modern day Profiles in Courage
It has been eye opening-at least to me-to see how many politicians have not only failed to deny the conspiratorial nonsense that has reared its ugly head over the past 4 years, but have tried to exploit it for their own benefit. The GOP congressmen who are trying to bury Cheney for her vote to impeach are exhibit A, as those who not only turn a blind eye to the clown show but also are attempting to benefit from it. Hawley and Cruz are right there too.
If you’ve read Kennedy’s book, the disdain from their own party that those Senators absorbed seems similar to what some Republicans who speak the truth experience today, and I hope history will recognize them for their selflessness as Kennedy’s book did for those 8 Senators.
I’d like to see someone like Sasse become the future of the GOP. I could see a primary where Hawley, Cruz, and other phonies split the “crazies” vote (as McCain called them), and someone like Sasse could reclaim the party for the sane wing of the party. At least I hope for that scenario.
