“Why aren’t there more senators like Sessions?”
Are you serious? This is the same supposed conservative that said this at Eric Holder’s confirmation:
“Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, for example, said he was sure that Mr. Holder would be a responsible legal officer and not a politician.”
“...Are you serious? ...” “Eric Holder...”
Sessions was probably just playing the politesse game. They’ll grin at each other up there on the Hill, shake hands, slap backs, and then set about finding new and interesting ways to stab each other in the back or screw the rest of us over in the most efficient way possible.
That’s part and parcel of being a politician, from either party.
