Editor: Let me be as concise as possible.
Regarding the vacancy in the Supreme Court: Senate Republicans = hypocrites who have almost monopolized cognitive dissonance since 2016.
President Trump and Senate Republicans = vultures that have been circling for a while and who couldn’t even wait a reasonable and compassionate amount of time to announce their ambitions to fill the vacancy.
What do these mean for the rest of us? Well, maybe it is time to buy clothes from Banana Republic because that is what our country has become.
Let me end with: “What can you do in the name of democracy, and remain a democracy that is worth defending?” — John Le Carré (Interview)
