#BlueAnon BS on the Fetterman flap

I'm talking about the Senate Dress Code, or now lack thereof, and now returned again, flap.

Clothes may make the man, or woman; they do, also make the class distinctions.

And? If you don't want that, you can go to "The Gods Must Be Crazy" and its allegedly possessions-free, seemingly class-free ¡Kung San! or else to Thomas Hobbes' government-free "Warre of all against all."

If not, and contra David Graeber's and David Wengrow's BS spinning, you're in a world of at least some level of class distinctions. And, as part of that, I support the U.S. Senate having a dress code.

Re Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman of "hoodies and shorts" infamy in particular?

Slate, like other Blue Anon, engages in goalpost-shifting and other things re Fetterman and Senate dress.

First, Fetterman dressed like that before he ever had a stroke. This has nothing to do with his current potentially still diminished ability. And, with the official Senate dress code, he donned a suit just fine yesterday, per

Second, it's a form of ableism in reverse to say he can't dress better. Plenty of other stroke victims, many with more longer-term damage than him, do so. And, since misused ableism or reverse ableism is a form of being wrongfully #woke, that's the one tag for this post.

Third, if he really can't dress better due to diminished ability? Shouldn't he join #DropOutJoe, or "Bye Bye Betty Crocker" (Feinstein) if it's also affected his mental ability? (Please, no citing Roman Hruska on Supreme Court nominees.)

Besides, he's just another Democratic Senate warmonger on Russia-Ukraine, and a squish at best, garden Democrat at worst on Israel, so no kid-gloves treatment from me in general.
Beyond that, doesn't Chuck Schumer have better things to do as Senate Majority Leader?
