I’ve shouted a question to the wind: “What would GOP senators say if a Democratic president-elect cozied-up to a former KGB agent and Russian dictator?” Several actually display concern, especially Senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. And throw in Marco Rubio. The Florida senator shined bright in a confirmation hearing when he plied Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, Donald Trump’s proposed secretary of state, on Russia.
View the video, especially after the 5:57 mark, when he asked, “Is Vladimir Putin a war criminal?” Tillerson’s lame answers did not satisfy him. Pray that other Republican representatives wake up from the nightmare of cynical partisanship and smell the sweet smell of genuine patriotism.
