Once there were Republican giants in the land: before and during the Civil War -- Lincoln and Senator Charles Sumner (who was nearly beaten to death on the floor of the Senate by South Carolina Democrat Preston Brooks.) When in the early 50's would-be Usurper Senator Joe McCarthy fomented hysteria against even our army Republican Senator Ralph Flanders stood up against him. Portraits in courage during the Watergate era included people like Republican Representatives like Caldwell Butler, Lawrence Hogan, Senator Howard Baker, Attorney Eliot Richardson, and even the tough, plodding Judge John Sirica.

Its' the pack headed by the alpha dog, Usurper Trump, has -- been V.P. candidate Paul Ryan and the millionaire car dealer from Butler (Mike Kelly.)

Or maybe they are a pack of snakes. But what kind are these Pubic Serpents: vipers or elapids? Antivenom treatments differ, if any gets to the victim(s) soon enough. You poorest aren't going to get there in time, even if the snakes were death adders.
