Softness to traitors

Softness to traitors will destroy us all.
- Maximilian Robespierre

Texas GOP Senator Cornyn, leader of the Republicans playing Gun Control footsie with the Democrats, gets booed by Republicans at the Texas GOP convention.  And not just a couple of Boo birds, but a solid minute and a half before his speech.  It seems that the good Senator was surprised by the response.

Smartest kid in class, right there [rolls eyes].  Maybe he should have read Shakespeare.

But cruel are the times, when we are traitors,
And do not know ourselves; when we hold rumor
From what we fear, yet know not what we fear,
But float upon a wild and violent sea
Each way and none

- William Shakespeare, Macbeth

And he's not up for re-election (or de-election) for four more years:-(.

I voted against that SOB in the 2020 Primary here in Texas, but he unfortunately won. I think there is cheating on the R side as much as the D side. I voted for him in November 2020 because the Democrat was an outright communist and the Libertarian was "weird".

I wish we could recall him or at least pressure him to resign. But, the FBI will cover up any indiscretions on his part because he is a good moderate Democrat in Republican clothing.

According to published reports yesterday, Cornyn is set to sell out the Republic on amnesty next. May he have joy in his 30 pieces of silver.
