Gohmert, Rubio, Nunes, and their ilk remind me of

kids we had back in grammar and high school who hung out with the bullies.

These kids weren't bullies themselves -- they were more like what is usually referred to as "losers." Not particularly smart or good at anything, no personality to speak of, and certainly not popular. I didn't think about it back then, but I did begin to notice a pattern after a few years. Now looking back at it, it seems they hung out with the bullies for protection and to appear to be cool. I've read about the same pattern occurring in jails and prisons, although I have no clue if that's real or not.

But these guys -- lawmakers in the highest offices in the land -- doing the same? That is fucking galaxy-class disgusting.

3. Too bad the best cure isn't feasible

A good punch in the nose is the antidote to a bully.
Even just standing up to them often works.

4. And sadly, their ilk is a damned big lot.

Gaetz, Cruz, McConnell, Graham... ad infinitum.

All emboldened punks.

5. Middle Age Riot tweeted this the other day:

"Marco Rubio is the sniveling sidekick who thinks he's going to rule the playground now that the bully has been kicked out of school."
