Louisiana's cowering GOP krewe in Washington

This guy is calling it like it is!

By Robert Mann, Columnist

If the Republican members of Louisiana's congressional delegation created a new D.C. Mardi Gras organization, we could call it the Krewe of Deilos. This ancient Greek word for fear and cowardice is the perfect moniker for the Congress of the chicken-hearted who cower before Dump.

Cowardice is apparently what prevents Republican "leaders" like House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Sens. Bill Cassidy and John Kennedy and four other Louisiana GOP House members from voicing public concerns about shocking behavior by Dump and his staff.

snip . . .

What's obvious is their loyalty to party over country, which may be why (with the exception of a mild statement by Kennedy) they've expressed no interest in investigating Russia's role in our presidential election. "Hear no evil, see no evil -- and speak no evil of Dump," is their apparent motto.

If are worried about the danger Dump poses to the nation, I imagine they are far more worried about the danger challenging Dump would pose to their political futures. Politicians often comfort themselves with the lazy conviction that their constituents send them to Washington to serve as nothing more than a mindless mouthpiece for their districts.
