Get Your $h!t Together, Republicans

Rep. Adam Schiff has written an open letter in the Washington Post to his Republican colleagues, asking them to start acting with bravery and integrity.

They will never do it. As I've previously observed, if Congressional Republicans ever turn on Donald Trump, it will only be because they're ready to usher in Mike Pence, who will continue to deliver all the malice they love without the vulgarity they pretend to abhor.

But it was worth the effort all the same, because we must expect more, even and especially of people from whom we are certain we won't get it.

If for no other reason, give it a read to feel good about the decency of elected officials we've got fighting our side, who aren't giving up or giving in.
