When is enough enough?

BOB POTTER

When the history of the coronavirus is written, it’s difficult to predict who will appear as the bigger fools: Republican politicians who lied that protecting yourself and others by wearing a mask and getting vaccinated would take away your freedoms, or their supporters who actually believed them.

One thing is certain, however. From Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis all the way down to Pennsylvania Sen. Jake Corman, Republican leaders will have a lot to answer for because they played politics with people’s lives.

They could have been heroes; instead they are zeroes.

There have been 4.6 million deaths from COVID-19 worldwide; over 650,000 in the U.S. Tragically for all of us, this is not enough for DeSantis, Corman and their fellow Republicans. So far as I’m concerned, they’re actions only serve to boost those numbers.
