Repubicans are playing "Morality is for Losers".

While we look to take the moral heights.

We are holding ourselves to higher standards, and call for Al Franken to resign, with the hope that our arguments with Republicans will carry "Moral Weight". Well - Newsflash - Republicans dont give a FUCK about morals. We are playing the game they want us to play.

I remembered it in the fall of 2016, when Senate Republicans and then-candidate Donald Trump first made it irrevocably clear there would be no hearing for anyone Barack Obama nominated to the Supreme Court, ever, even though Obama had put up a moderate, centrist nominee who was once acceptable to Senate Republicans. I remembered it when Trump won, and we realized that that seat would stay stolen.

I remembered it this week when the Senate passed a tax bill at 2 a.m. that apparently contains a $289 billion error, thanks to the fact that it was drafted in the margins rather than adjudicated through normal congressional standards, as, say, Obamacare was.

And I remember it almost daily now, as John Conyers steps down after 52 years in Congress, amid credible allegations of sexual harassment, and Al Franken is called upon to step down, amid credible allegations of sexual harassment, while Roy Moore continuesówith the presidentís and the GOPís overt endorsementóhis run for Senate amid credible allegations of sexual abuse of children.

Sure, donít stoop to their level. But letís acknowledge that the game Republicans are forcing everyone to play insists morality is for losers.
