The Senators from Laodicea

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. 

Revelation 3: 14-16

So, here’s the deal. Everybody saw what they saw. This morning, Trump tweeted out a loony tune conspiracy theory about how the old man got what he deserved. Republican senators are dodging, bobbing, and weaving.

My prediction: pretty soon, those bobbing, dodging, and weaving Senators from Laodicea are going to royally piss off both legs of their electoral stool. The nutjobs embracing the conspiracy theories will be pissed off because Senator Cornpone won’t lend his enthusiastic support. The country club Republicans who still live a world resembling reality will be pissed off by their cowardice.

My second, and related, prediction: In the 2020 election, the Senators from Laodicea, having pissed off both sides of the traditional Republican coalition, will receive fewer votes than the Orange Man.
