Rodgers’ deaf ear

The Spokesman Review’s article by Orion Donovan-Smith and Tom Sowa’s letter to the editor, both appearing in the 25 November SR issue, motivated me to write this comment.

Tom, you are “spot-on” when you commented on Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ skill and adeptness in avoiding definitive answers to questions. That is why I stopped voting for her in the past two elections (regardless of her opponent).

However, in my opinion, there is a specific reason why she passively supports President Trump refusing to concede to President-Elect Biden (unlike her Republican contemporaries – who remain silent or speak out against it). She is smart enough to recognize that the Trump support base is the very core and key to her winning future re-elections. So, she will continue to turn a deaf-ear to President Trump’s antics, shenanigans, and devilry while in the final stages of his lame-duck presidency.
