It's Gonna Be a Tough Few Days

for the Republicans in the Senate. They're going to face an onslaught of protest - deliberately nasty, crude, and loud - that hasn't been seen since the anti-war protests.

The Progressives/Leftists are just about completely unhinged. They are burning bridges, and willing to take down anyone who will not bend to their pressure. Some Republicans may fold. I hope not.

Will wonders never cease!

It's gonna get ugly. It's gonna - unfortunately - probably erupt in even more violence. If the Capital police aren't frisking ALL visitors - even, and especially, the media, they may regret it. That might easily include the Senator's staff, most of whom are even more partisan than the members.

I'm going to be praying for this country.



Please understand that I do not actually hope for violence from the Left. But it would, I think, shock the "squishy middle" were it to happen.

Amen.

"May the divine Assistance remain always with us.
"May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
