In response to the Feb. 24 editorial “GOP senators defy duty”: When I read about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his stance on a Supreme Court nominee, I am quickly reminded of a school-yard bully, the first to speak up loud and strong. Then all the children (of the Senate and House) line up behind him and shake in support.
I would like to remind McConnell that he is an elected official and even if 51 percent of his state’s constituency elected him, he still has to represent the state, not just a portion of it. He will of course put forth the views of his party.
I am afraid the politics of disruption and arrogance has gone too far, and we need to get back to “We the People.”
