Shameful

You should know the names of people who didn’t mind seeing the Capitol under attack by a mob but got their tails so twisted by calling it an “insurrection” that they voted against a resolution to honor the police who tried to protect them.

A dozen House Republicans voted against a resolution to award three Congressional Gold Medals to the Capitol Police, the D.C. police and the Smithsonian Institution in recognition of those who protected the U.S. Capitol when it was attacked by a pro-Trump mob on Jan. 6.

The GOP lawmakers, who said they objected to the use of the term “insurrectionists” in the resolution, are: Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Andy Harris (Md.), Lance Gooden (Tex.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Louie Gohmert (Tex.), Michael Cloud (Tex.), Andrew S. Clyde (Ga.), Greg Steube (Fla.), Bob Good (Va.) and John Rose (Tenn.).

They had their excuses, but I’m not going to repeat them because stupid has a life of its own.

  1. Bob Good is my representative. He’s worse than worthless. And, sigh, the too many “deep red” Trumpsters in the region love him.

    Sadly, the Democratic candidate who lost would have been great in the position. Hopefully our new state legislature can dismantle the gerrymandering so that get fairer and more competent representation in the next election.
