Great expectations

  1. I’m obliged to agree in entirety with this post, Colorado. Makes me unhappy to have to do so, but Fetterman’s wish to “be himself” is OTT.

    1. I assumed during his campaign that the casual clothes were due to his being sick, or recovering, or whatever. Now that he’s in Washington, however … Hmm, I wonder what his constituents think.

  2. Yeah, but don’t you think that it is disingenuous for MTG to invoke “etiquette and respect for our institutions” after carrying on in a openly disrespectful and disruptive manner during the state of the union? I suspect that what is going on with Fetterman has to do with depression, and it may be gracious to accommodate him for awhile.

    1. I was about to say MTG is “the worst.” But our Lauren Boebert is challenging her for that title. They are both colossal embarrassments, IMHO. As for Fetterman, I just read an item in the Philadelphia Inquirer that says in PA, his supporters are accustomed to his casual dress and notes that although he dresses that way around the Capitol, he wears a suit in the Senate chamber. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see who blinks first, Fetterman or the Senate. (I don’t know what the Senate’s new “relaxed” dress code says.)

      1. The Boebert incident is pretty much off the charts. I about spit out my coffee when I found out that this happened at a matinee full of young people with their parents. Their behavior is so bad I think that is the point. It is about the drama; they have no interest in seriously doing the job that they were elected to office for.

      2. I’ve seen the video a bunch of times but didn’t realize it was a matinee. Ugh. That woman is such a disgrace to the voters, her office, the state, and women everywhere. I was crushed to see her re-elected by a mere 500+ votes, after a recount.

      3. The other video that isn’t shown on the news is her stuffing her boobs back into her dress in the hallway. In what world would it be appropriate to wear a dress like that to a Beetlejuice matinee? I was a high school teacher; she seems like one of my out-of-control, I’m the center-of-the-universe drama queen kids to me.

... and that's my two cents
