Kickass, the doorstop dog, said the keeper had the feeling this morning that he was with Thelma and Louise who had just parked their car and were admiring the scenic view from the edge of the precipice as the idiotic posse plunged over the cliff to its doom. Recalling that climactic suicidal scene from the old movie is about as relevant as the keeper can get in the wake of having witnessed a gang of narcissistic GOP streakers vividly demonstrating in the big game of political life that they have neither back bones nor balls.
There is, in a sense, finally an answer to the question Joseph Welch asked of Wis. Senator Joe McCarthy 65 or so years ago: “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
Unfortunately, the “decency” question needs to be asked of Wisconsin’s current Senator Johnson.
Closure, while rarely complete, is essential to coping with grief and unpleasantness, and it is offered this morning in the form of news of POTUS activity that embraces decency, compassion and intelligence.
Welcome to Wisconsin—next Tuesday in Milwaukee–, President Biden. Kickass, the keeper and Phyllis, the State and the rest of the country is SO ready for you!
