Senator Warren is in Good Company on Jeff Sessions

There is a photograph traveling around social media today beneath the quote from Mitch McConnell stating “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”, from McConnell as he used U.S. Senate rules to muzzle Senator Elizabeth Warren last night as the Senate debated the confirmation of Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States. The quotation is being claimed by progressives and is with lightning speed becoming a feminist hymn. The photograph shows photos of Senator Warren, Coretta Scott King, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

I was honored to speak to Miss Rosa Parks every weekday morning from Jan. 1986 – May 1986 as an intern in the office of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, Jr. I stand with Rosa Parks, with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy who led the opposition to Jeff Sessions that very year, and with Sen. Elizabeth Warren. And I do not apologize for it. (I have gotten push-back from men against Elizabeth Warren’s “style” recently.)

Jeff Sessions, the race-baiting voting rights opponent, as Attorney General of the United States of America? This is an infamous day. Ted Kennedy, the Lion of the Senate God rest his soul, is rolling in his grave.

Thank you Senator Warren. You are the Lioness of the Senate, and you are in good company in history.

    ..please, no need to be redundant.

  3. Sen Elizabeth Warren The Undisciplined Child !

    Sen Elizabeth Warren is nothing more than a undisciplined child who was warn by the parent on breaking the rules. When the parent implements the required discipline she reacts as the screaming child stomping her feet and then twisting what had really happened to avoid accountability.
    We the taxpayers of Massachusetts deserve better from our elected officials and they should be the example of obeying the rules and accepting accountability for their actions. This also goes for Sen Markey


    This was for practice. Then he made Republicans.

  5. What's the point of Joe Manchin?


    • The argument would be ...

      that he’s better than a Republican in that seat. His lifetime League of Conservation Voters score is 43%, awful but much better than GOP WV Sen. Shelley Moore Capito’s score of 4%.

      That’s a reason for him to exist, but not a reason for national Dems to pour resources into saving his seat.
