A little throw-away bit from Tiger Beat’s email thingie caught my attention because, well, Gym Jordan is a dull tool and makes it really easy to put his statements back in his face, but usually it is not from one of his colleagues:
THIS EXCHANGE on the House floor Tuesday night summed up the debate over triggering the 25th Amendment. Expect to hear more of this framing today before the impeachment vote:
— Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio): “The cancel culture doesn’t just go after conservatives and Republicans … it’ll come for us all. That’s what’s frightening.”
— Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.): “The cancel culture of violent white supremacy tried to cancel out all of our lives last Wednesday.”
Raskin —as you recall last week— suffered the loss of his son to depression/suicide. That’s about as trenchant a spitball as any of us could have made.
