General Sessions says nobody has a sense of humor any more. Not true. Says folks oughta give him a break. Also not true. If he would lay off the sativa, which apparently riles people up, and tried some mellow indica, he might settle down and quit disrespecting places and preferences that make him say “ick.” Some of us laugh and also say “ick” the minute we see Jeff Sessions’ face, but do we make a big fuss about it and try to lock him up?
I have followed the advice of many talking heads and taken a deep, deep breath. Then I exhaled. Now Jeff Sessions should give it up. Zero tolerance for lawbreaking , and zero tolerance for whatever he thought deviant, have been Sessions’ way of life. Just roll the tapes from the late 1990s of Sessions fanning himself over Bill Clinton’s turpitude. So, see you later, you bad dude, you’ve maxed out your moral credit and exhausted the tolerance and patience of sensible freedom-and-justice-loving Americans.
Attorney General Sessions, we now know, is a bad hombre. If he is a true Southerner and has any sense of honor, recusing himself from investigations of Russian ties with the Trump campaign is not enough. He must self-deport pronto. Senator Al Franken did not force then-Senator Sessions to be a lying liar by asking him questions about Russia. Sessions’ false statements are all on him, and to say otherwise buys into the kind of permissive relativism that Mr. Sessions has attacked for many years. The happiness and perhaps even glee of Democrats here is nevertheless not relevant to the problem: if an Attorney General is not believable as the champion of impartial justice, the jig is up.
