Awful Is as Awful Does

And right now, there might not be anybody being more awful than California Assembly members Brian Dahle and Kevin Kiley, who are facing off in a nasty race to fill a vacant seat in the state Senate. The two men – both Republicans - have gone after each other like hungry lions battling over the last piece of gazelle. As the Sacramento Bee reports, each has abused the truth to Trumpian proportions and seemingly disavowed anything resembling class or dignity. But given that every day we move more and more into a post-dignity, post-truth political world, maybe we ought not to be surprised. They might be in the same party, but it’s pretty clear they’re not ever going to be on the same team.
