Doug Jones: American Hero

I have a post in the hopper about last night’s Freak Show. In it I addressed the Trump removal trial and what Alabama Democratic Senator Doug Jones might do.

I hope Democrats will cut Senator Doug Jones some slack. If I were advising him, I’d tell him to hold his nose and vote to acquit on at least one article if not both. There’s no point in sticking your head in a guillotine if you don’t have to.

I just saw Senator Jones’ statement and was blown away that he is doing the right thing and voting to convict on both articles. It’s refreshing to know that there’s one Senator who puts country before expediency. I’m sure Chuck Schumer would have given him a pass since he represents one of the reddest states in the nation.

It’s rare in any era to see a politician cast a vote that could doom their re-election bid. I am beyond impressed by Senator Jones’ courage and statesmanship.

This is almost like a Capra movie. We need more politicians like Doug Jones. Thank you, Senator.

    It’s significant to remember that Doug Jones was the prosecuting attorney who went after the cowards who bombed the Baptist Church and secured their conviction. A lot of people before him had just let the murder of those four girls fall by the wayside. Don’t stir up trouble. The past is past. None of that fazed Jones. He’s got moxie.

    Yes
    He has spine and takes his oath seriously.

  3. Doug Jones is the Senator every Southerner deserves.
    Unlike McConnell, Scott, Cornyn, Cruz, McSally, and the rest of McTurdle’s cabal of crooks.
