Just as Senator Margaret Chase Smith smote Joe McCarthy a political death blow long ago, the dangerous absurdity of lies fostered by the current GOP leadership will end in Trump’s demise.

You can read about Smith and Cheney’s current statements here.

Margaret Madeline Chase Smith (December 14, 1897 – May 29, 1995) was an American politician. A member of the Republican Party, she served as a U.S Representative (1940–1949) and a U.S. Senator (1949–1973) from Maine. She was the first woman to serve in both houses of the United States Congress, and the first woman to represent Maine in either. A moderate Republican, she was among the first to criticize the tactics of Joseph McCarthy in her 1950 speech, “Declaration of Conscience”.

Smith was a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 1964 presidential election; she was the first woman to be placed in nomination for the presidency at a major party’s convention. Upon leaving office, she was the longest-serving female Senator in history, a distinction that was not surpassed until January 5, 2011, when Senator Barbara Mikulski was sworn in for a fifth term. Smith was ranked as the longest-serving Republican woman in the Senate, a distinction that was not surpassed until January 3, 2021, when Susan Collins, who holds the same Senate seat she previously held, was sworn in for a fifth term.

Trump is widely noted now by the media as controlling the GOP, but that may well prove a slender constituency to most Americans whose sense of American honor is not built on a massive pathology of lying.
