GOP senator: profile in cowardice

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin knows the truth about the 2020 presidential election. Joe Biden has been elected president of the United States. Donald Trump has been booted out on his a**.

The Republican senator, though, just cannot say it out loud within earshot of anyone who would hear him. He cannot acknowledge that President-elect Biden is going to take office next month as the 46th president.

Johnson says he would commit “political suicide.” That’s it. He speaks to the obvious outcome and he fears some kind of push back from the GOP base that has swilled the battery acid potion that makes folks believe that Biden’s free and fair election was the product of phony voter fraud.

Best of all, Sen. Johnson wants Attorney General William Barr — who says there is no evidence of fraud in the electoral process — to prove the absence of such evidence.

Um, let’s see. How does one prove the absence of something when the burden always falls on those to prove the existence of evidence?

So, there you have it. A leading GOP minion of Donald Trump just cannot acknowledge what most of us know already … that Joe Biden is going to take the oath as the next president of the United States.

Johnson casts a profile in cowardice.
