Probably it doesn’t matter, but I wondered if this rude and mouthy misogynist professed any religious faith. His “Full Biography” on his congressional website doesn’t list a religion. So I guess Yoho can continue to be a rude and mouthy misogynist and no repercussions.
This reminds me of an incident the late Senator Harold Hughes experienced early in his Senate career in 1969. He had seconded the nomination of peace candidate Sen Gene McCarthy at the tumultuous 1968 Democratic Convention, and that led to this encounter, from his autobiography, “The Man from Ida Grove”(pp 14-15):
“I looked across the aisle to see a silver-haired senator whom I recognized from newspaper pictures. I reached out my hand and greeted him, 'Hello. I’m Harold Hughes of Iowa.”
The man stared at me through cold glassy eyes and snapped, ‘I don’t like you, you s-- of a b----.’
I was stunned. The man continued glaring at me.
‘Senator,’ I gulped, ‘you don’t even know me.’
He leaned forward. ‘I know everything about you, you s-- of a b----, and I don’t like you.’
I tried to smile. ‘Well, Senator, maybe if you give me a little time, you might get to like me.’
‘Anybody who would nominate Gene McCarthy for president has to be some sort of a g-- d— nut,’ he spat. …
The sharp rapping of the gavel called the chamber to order, and the room hushed."
Alexandria, you’re in good company.
