“I hate the double standard that exists. It’s because Democrats are always the adults. If this was Nancy Pelosi, do you think that anyone would be saying, ‘Hey, Republicans, go help Nancy?’ No one would be saying that. No one would even expect that. But they always expect us to fix their mess.”

— Rep. Jasmine Crockett (D-TX), quoted by The Messenger.

What we need to do is make certain that the blame for the gross and sundry messes goes to the right party.
