This is not the "enlightened delegate" that Madison envisioned, but rather an uninformed partisan, intent not on the honorable representation of his constituency, but on victory at all cost against a fabricated enemy.
Our elected representatives, absent term limits, lose sight of the intended purpose of their role, and become trapped in the back rooms of a system no longer in touch with, nor responsive to, the electorate.
This should *never* be about winning points against fellow representatives, taking revenge against perceived foes, or making threats of retribution in the face of overwhelming reality. These ignorant men of the GOP do a disservice to their party, their gender, and their nation.
“Even the most enlightened delegate, Madison would find, could fall into wrong measures when he lacked adequate information” - James Madison: A Life Reconsidered, By Lynne Cheney.
