Here’s a letter I just sent to the editor of the largest daily newspaper in Charleston, SC. It’ll be interesting to see if they run it:
Please excuse this Yankee for touching on a sore spot, but I understood that South Carolina had renounced slavery when it rejoined the United States back in 1868. So why are you sending a slave to DC?
When Merrick Garland was appointed to the Supreme Court in 2016, Lindsey Graham refused to give him a fair hearing. Why? Because Mitch McConnell ordered him not to.
Oh, he had his excuses. “There’s a presidential election coming up,” he said. (It was eight months off.) “Let the American people decide,” he said. “[If I’m lying], you could use my words against me, and you’d be absolutely right,” he said.
That was then, this is now. With another election less than three weeks away, he’s ramming through the confirmation of a different nominee with unholy speed. Why? Because Mitch McConnell ordered him to.
And when massa says “jump”, Lindsey slavishly asks “how high?” … on the way up!
Wouldn’t you folks rather have a decent senator whose word you can trust, and who represents South Carolina, instead of a sniveling, craven liar who represents Kentucky?
