Stock and Trade

Dear Reader,

Most of the time I respect and admire House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and feel contempt for would-be Speaker Kevin McCarthy. On issue after issue, I’m with Nancy and I’m against Kevin. Even as I write this on Thursday morning, Kevin McCarthy is issuing arrogant and defiant declarations about the Jan. 6th Select Committee, with which he refuses to cooperate. He flip-flops and gaslights and enables the Big Lie.
