“My Oath, Like Your Oath, Is to Uphold the Constitution”

CREDIT:

This is some good indignation right here from Senator Pat Leahy (D-VT) in response to Sara Taylor’s view that her oath of office was an oath of personal loyalty to George W. Bush:

Expressing good, old-fashioned outrage isn’t my strong suit since I’m really way too soaked in the culture of irony. But this kind of thing is almost beyond outrageous. The lack of self-awareness that has to go into a person who knows she under fire saying something like that, as if she genuinely has no idea that public officials are supposed to uphold the law and the constitution.
