Hypocrisy has never been in short supply in Republican ranks.
Ginni Thomas (highly-paid lobbyist, and married to Justice Clarence Thomas) posted a Fox News clip of Jim Jordan denying he knew about allegations of sexual abuse during his tenure as assistant wrestling coach at OSU on her Facebook page today, claiming:
“Jim Jordan is under attack, with false accusations, because he threatens the elite."
I want to live in the world where a highly paid lobbyist and spouse of a Supreme Court Justice and a sitting US Congressman in line for Speaker of the House are not "elites".
I want to live in a world where the people who cover up sexual abuse are considered the victims and not the threats.
I want to live in a world where one can commit the egregious morally outrageous acts of ignoring the sexual abuse of students in my care, and not have my chances of re-election hindered.
I want to live in a world where people can spread racist lies on their Facebook pages and still be cheered on by thousands - MILLIONS - when claim they are the ones under attack.
I want to live in a world in which I can delude myself into thinking my opinion matters simply because I am married to someone who holds power.
I want to live in a world where self-awareness and consequences for placing self-interest above all do not exist.
In short, I want to live in Ginni Thomas' world.
Oh, wait. I already do.
