GOP freshmen skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee

5 posts / 0 new

Politico is reporting that more than a dozen Freshman Republican lawmakers got tipsy and went swimming in the holy Sea of Galilee in Israel while on delegation last August. Republican Kevin Yoder from Kansas – who allegedly stripped naked before jumping into the sea that the Bible says Jesus walked on.

Yoder apologized to his constituents on Sunday saying he is, “I feel incredibly remorseful that I have caused embarrassment to my constituents and I have caused folks who believe in me to be disappointed.” Reports suggest that the FBI investigated the incident – and that the group of lawmakers was scolded by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

After all, nothing says Republican family values like getting drunk and skinny-dipping at a holy site.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
