U.S News and World Report writer Susan Mulligan has a problem with junior members of Congress taking their senior members to task. In her article (http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/susan-milligan/2013/03/15/ted-cruzs-patronizing-constitutional-lesson-for-dianne-feinstein) Ms. Mulligan takes Junior Senator from Texas Ted Cruz to task over his less than respectful tone toward Senior California Senator Dianne Feinstein. Ms. Mulligan even decries the filibuster of Rand Paul over the wording about drone strikes from a few weeks ago.

Personally I would have to tell Ms. Mulligan that the status of a Senior Senator is irrelevant. When they are wrong they are wrong regardless of how long they have been wrong. And Lord knows Feinstein has been wrong a long time. And Rand Paul’s demonstration, even though Senior Senators Graham and McCain criticized him for it, produced results. Yes the administration finally came out and said they would not use the drones on Americans on American soil.

I will take a disrespectful junior senator who is right over a senior senator who is wrong any day. And although many members of Congress are due a level of respect over the accomplishments and service throughout their lives Dianne Feinstein is not one of them. All I can say at this point is go junior go stick to your guns, or it might cost us ours.

About wyldewoody

I am a scholar and a preacher. I am a father, husband and friend. I have served my country and cussed my government and will continue to do both. I enjoy writing and you never know what you might find here in my posts. I will write about everything from my biblical opinion to scientific musings potentially bad stories to editorials about public policy and international affairs. I suppose that is blogging in general, if you like it great, if you don’t go somewhere else, if you disagree with me, great I love a good discussion. Hell might just find me ranting to the shadows in the corner. Kinda like I think I am doing now. And if my punctuation irritates you, that makes me happy.
