Republican Glee?

Are Republicans gleeful over recent events impacting the State Senate? That clearly seems the case in some quarters.

Glee may be natural, given the circumstances.

Yet, I’ve been around long enough to remember some Republican legislators also nailed in stings and caught up in public corruption. That absolute power thing, it most certainly can go both ways, regardless of party.

Human nature isn’t partisan.

So, I’ll leave it to the blindly partisan to cite examples in attempts to prove which party produces the most bad apples.

I do note that Republicans in the California legislature don’t have enough clout for any influence peddlers to even tempt them with graft.

Yet, if in fact Republican legislators can somehow successfully capitalize on current events, I would caution them to remember not to someday feast at the indoor table while standing upright on two hooves.
