BTRTN: The Appeasement of Eunuchs

With rank and file Republicans now in lock step behind Donald Trump's efforts to undermine the FBI, the Mueller investigation, and the rule of law, BornToRunTheNumbers finds it unconscionable that the most senior GOP leaders are standing idly by and allowing this assault on our democracy to proceed. Where are Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan?

Excerpts: "Yes, other than Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are supposedly the two most powerful government officials in the nation, and both appear to be about as essential to the national dialog as Rosenkrantz and Gildenstern. They are as integral to the functioning of our democracy as the Cleveland Browns are to the Super Bowl. If our impending constitutional crisis were staged for Broadway, it would be called “Two Farinellis and the King..."

"There’s a new term entering the vernacular, which I heard for the first time from a brilliant young Ph. D. candidate who is studying American History. He told me that the likes of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are now being referred to as the “Vichy Republicans.”
Is there any person of character, courage, and principle in the Republican Party today who will play the role of Victor Laszlo in this movie, and inspire the Vichy Republicans to sing "La Marseillaise" in front of Major Strasser? Is there any Republican who is willing to stand up and say that destroying the FBI to save Donald Trump is a devil’s bargain?"

2. Hey leave the Eunuchs out of this...

It's got nothing to do with the possesion or non-possesion of testicles. It's an advanced case of ethical deficiencey, at least.
