Good For Bob Bennett

I hadn't seen that he had passed and then I saw this story.

Former Sen. Bob Bennett (R) spent his last moments in a hospital bed. But the three-term senator from Utah had a final wish.

"Are there any Muslims in the hospital?” he asked his wife and son, as they told the Daily Beast. "I'd love to go up to every single one of them to thank them for being in this country, and apologize to them on behalf of the Republican Party for Donald Trump."


  1. There are Republicans of conscience and principles. But Republicans like Bennett were primaried because they were not nuts like the TeaPublicans. Mormons know what it's like to be singled out for discrimination and hatred. He spoke from moral authority, unlike the degenerate creeps running the GOP today.

  2. Yes, I didn't know much (anything) about Bennett before this. I'm sure there's lots I would have disagreed with him about. Gotta give credit where it's due, tho.
