    Senate makes John Fetterman put his pants back on

    Senate Passes ‘SHORTS’ Resolution; John Fetterman Must Wear Pants

    JOEL B. POLLAK 27 Sep 2023

    The U.S. Senate achieved a rare bipartisan milestone Wednesday when it passed the “SHow Our Respect To the Senate” (SHORTS) act, restoring the dress code and forcing Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) to wear pants on the floor.

    As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) allowed the dress code to lapse in deference to Fetterman, who has adopted hoodies and shorts as part of a “working-class” persona.

    The policy came under withering criticism from left and right. Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote:

    [Schumer’s] decision is apparently connected to the desires of Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, who enjoys parading around in gym shorts and a hoodie. Why would his desires receive such precedence?

    Because he has political needs. He must double down on his brand. He imagines that dressing like a slob deepens his perceived identification with the working class. But this kind of thing doesn’t make you “authentic”; it just makes you a different kind of phony. Mr. Fetterman, born into affluence and privilege, reacted to criticism of Mr. Schumer’s decision with an air of snotty entitlement. He mocked critics, making woo-woo monster sounds to reporters and telling a House critic to “get your s— together.” He said Republicans were “losing their minds” and ought to have better things to do.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) objected, however, and joined Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) in proposing a resolution to put pants on the Pennsylvania Senator.
    “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”

    How far removed from the world of the working class does a rich person have to be in order to believe that this is how a normal working class person would dress in the US Senate? For that matter, he'd get sent home to change into pants if he showed up to work in a factory or construction site dressed like that. You have to be making high 6 figure salaries in a Silicon Valley job to be able to dress like that for work.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    I'm actually surprised he and Mitch don't show up in just hospital gowns and diapers.

    When I saw the title of this thread I was expecting Fetterman to show up to work wearing boxers.
