...in Oklahoma, to find that our awful Sen. Inhofe (from Des Moines, Iowa) has promised the great pumpkin that the Senate will (for no explicable reason) defend bases named after confederates. https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...ec1a96-cdbf-11ea-bc6a-6841b28d9093_story.html This presents is a nice ‘poison veto’ opportunity. The Senate should, instead, tie a base name change amendment to the next relief package. Force Trump to publicly accept defeat or cause Americans to starve on the streets in defense of Braxton Bragg. Edit: for those who can’t read the article, the House and Senate both passed defense authorization bills instructing the Pentagon to rename the bases, by veto proof margins. I’m not actually suggesting taking a risk on Trump making a rational choice. I’m assuming an override would happen immediately, in case the White House ghouls (looking at you, Miller) have his orangeness’ ear the day of the veto. But I think he would just ‘eat it.’ Edit2: Just a reminder of how inexplicable this is, a Senator originally from Iowa, elected in Oklahoma, is mounting a defense of confederate base names. Oklahoma wasn’t even a state during the Clvil War, nor would it be for many decades. Obstinacy is its own ‘cause’, I guess. Edit 3: Depending on how far Cruz, Paul et al are willing to take their opposition, the Senate may need Democratic votes. Especially with Romney’s help in withholding his vote. This could potentially be pulled off. Any GOP Senators dreaming of post-Trump party leadership?
