  • The American Thinker site, which I read from time to time, does non-progressives no favor by refering to the sweeping of Swalwell, Schiff, and Omar from committee assignments as “payback.” That sounds like petty vindictiveness. It’s actually karma. The Democrats decided on these rules and should be made to live up to them. Recall that one of the Democrats holy books, Rules for Radicals, says as much.
