Sunday Funday: “Rule Of Law” Edition

repubs didn't cut golf trips

Heard on the John Fugelsang Show Friday (paraphrase) – “Teapot Dome would only be an small appetizer for this administration.”

It was funny and ironic to see Kim Reynolds’ main opponent hoisted on the Republican petard of “rule of law.” Reynolds and the insider Republicans were able to repel a challenge from inside the party by using a strict reading of a law with absolutely no leeway. Ron Corbett was treated almost as a poor drug user with less than an ounce of weed who had the book thrown at him.

From Bill Dix to Rod Blum on up to the White House it sure looks like “rule of law” only applies to non-Republicans. Let’s also throw ethics on the burn pile for Republicans. Dear Leader is the Grand Poobah of ethics violations, but with folks like Pruitt, Ben Carson, Betsy DeVos, Michael Flynn ad infinitum this is and lawless and ethics-less group.
