Absolute power corrupts absolutely

Print Article

The Kavanaugh hearings evolved into an impressive display of self-righteousness and moral indignation. The bipartisan hypocrisy, pomposity and narcissism was quite remarkable. Cory Booker and Lindsay Graham deserve Oscars for their performances.

Really though, does anyone believe any of the senators cared a whit about Ford or Kavanaugh? It’s about power … period. And the truth? Who cares? Truth is relative, isn’t it? Ford spoke her truth. Kavanaugh spoke his truth. And that’s the truth.

“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Lord Acton was absolutely right. Power at any cost.

God bless America, and God bless our military.
