Throughout history, the fools in society have not been afraid to speak their mind.
In America, there have been fools in both political parties, but lately the Republican Party has more than its share.
Recently, Marjorie Taylore Greene challenger AOC about her Green New Deal bill - even though she had not read it. Wisely, AOC declined, perhaps because of this old adage:
“Arguing with a fool proves there are two.”
One of the worst offenders is Rand Paul, who recently grilled Dr. Fauci about masks.
Paul demanded Fauci provide studies showing “significant reinfection, hospitalization or death after either natural infection or the vaccine. It doesn’t exist.”
“You’re not hearing what I’m saying about variants,” Fauci protested.
“You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show!” Paul shot back.
“No,” Fauci said. “Let me just state for the record that masks are not theater. They are protective.”
The court jester, of course, is Jim Jordan:
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) got into a heated exchange with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday during a House subcommittee hearing about when states can return back to normal and end coronavirus precautions. During the exchange, Fauci said that Jordan was "ranting again."
"Gym" also got sideways with Maxine Walters:
When Rep. James Clyburn told Jordan that his time had expired, he kept ranting.
Rep. Maxine Waters of California, obviously fed up, told Jordan, "Your time expired, sir. You need to respect the chair and shut your mouth."
I'd be remiss if I did not included Ted Cruz on the list of village idiots:
After four years of a dizzying array of political stunts from the Trump administration’s Justice Department, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is apparently suddenly concerned about potential politicization of the Justice Department — now that the Biden administration is in charge. On Monday, during a confirmation hearing for President Joe Biden’s Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland, Cruz rehashed some conservative talking points against the Obama administration — which left power over four years ago! Cruz even complained about actions by the IRS against conservative groups — although the IRS wouldn’t even be under Garland’s authority as Attorney General! It’s a part of the Treasury Department.
Meanwhile, at the Monday confirmation hearing, Cruz rambled against Eric Holder, an Obama era Attorney General who left power in 2015.
Fortunately, there ARE enough talented people in our government who aren't afraid to challenge the crazy people, One of them is Jen Psaki,
Jennifer Rene Psaki (/ˈsɑːki/; born December 1, 1978) is an American political advisor and the 34th and current White House press secretary. A member of the Democratic Party, she previously served in the Obama administration as the White House deputy press secretary (2009); the White House deputy communications director (2009–2011); the spokesperson for the United States Department of State (2013–2015); and the White House communications director (2015–2017)] Psaki was a political contributor for CNN from 2017 to 2020.
This clip shows her responding to John Cornyn:
Here she is responding to "the former guy":
