Re: “The Skinny

"Let's be clear: white supremacy or any form of racism, bigotry, violence or domestic terrorism has no place in America."
~ Martha McSally

To me Rep. McSally's delay in responding to Charlottesville is less important than the vapidity and emptiness of her response.

Her response is vapid because it states what any American of grade-school age or beyond should already have grasped. What part of "liberty and justice for all" is hard to understand?

And it's empty because she's taking no action. As a member of the Committee on Homeland Security, she could be supporting hearings on domestic terrorism. As a member of the House she could be supporting the resolution to censure the president.

Without actions, her words are mere words. If she truly believed that racism and bigotry have no place in America, she would be calling for impeaching the president. He's shown that he embraces and embodies racism and bigotry. If they have no place in America, they surely have no place in the White House.

Re: “A Needed Prescription

It would be hard to overstate the naivete exemplified in this piece, or the lack of any attempt at investigative journalism. Rep. McSally has been a big part of the problem, not of the solution, with her gung-ho cheerleading for passage of the cruel and wildly unpopular AHCA. I expect better from the Weekly.

Re: “The Skinny

Why would Rep. McSally expect that the environment would NOT change on January 20th? President Obama, whatever anyone might think of his policies, did not flout the Constitution, ignore established ethics rules, and behave so as to make the U.S. a worldwide laughingstock. President Trump has already done all this and worse. For McSally to imply that January 20th would not be seen as a turning point is naive to an extreme, an extreme that renders it unbelievable in the context of her education and intelligence. In other words, her rhetoric here embodies a level of disingenuousness that's unbecoming and inappropriate for someone in her position.
