You have to hand it to Democrat politicians: They are seriously committed to their politics. For them, politics is more important than life itself. 

Although, to be fair, that level of commitment is a little easier for them considering their low regard for life in the first place— at least the lives of others. Democrats are enthusiastic supporters of death in all its various forms. 

Democrats love abortion, for example. Two of them, Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Rep. Madeleine Dean of Pennsylvania, displayed their devotion to abortion by showing up to President Biden’s State of the Union address last week wearing pins that said “ABORTION,” except the “O” was replaced with a heart.

Mr. Markey, who bears a striking resemblance to the Grim Reaper, has been fighting for death in Washington for more than 47 years. In 2021, he drafted a bill to expand the Supreme Court so that Democrats could pack the high court with four more abortion enthusiasts.

You literally cannot make this stuff up. Can you imagine being a fly on the pearly gates when Sen. Reaper tries explaining all this to St. Peter?

But it’s not just abortion. Democrats are committed to death throughout all stages of life. For example, they are tremendous supporters of high murder rates in all the cities they run. In Democrat-led cities, children are killed in drive-by shootings, teenagers are killed in drug wars, and older Americans are killed for their Social Security checks.

Another favorite form of death for Democrats is drug intoxication.

Truly, death in all its forms. And when death is not available, death’s close cousin, misery, will do. 

That’s why Democrat strongholds also feature so much rape and theft, and armed assaults. Also, people relieving themselves on the sidewalk and vagrants walking around with their pants down. And of course, high gas prices and grocery bills.

So life is pretty cheap and meaningless when Democrats are in charge. But still, they do love their politics more than life itself.

Watching first lady Jill Biden face-smooching the second gentleman at her husband’s State of the Union address last week reminded the world who wears the pants in that family. 

She and the entire Biden clan force their doddering patriarch to shuffle around and babble incoherently on stage in order to keep the corrupt family fortune thriving.

The family of Sen. John Fetterman, a Pennsylvania Democrat, also has a zombielike dedication to politics. They definitely love their politics more than life itself — at least more than Mr. Fetterman’s life.

After Mr. Fetterman was hospitalized for a terrible stroke last year, his wife and family forced him back out on the campaign trail. It paid off for the family, who rode the stumbling, mumbling Mr. Fetterman all the way into the Senate.

He has been hospitalized again, according to one newspaper, due to “strains of his recovery, which left him with a physical impairment and serious mental health challenges.”

Despite extraordinary accommodation in the Senate, Mr. Fetterman cannot communicate with people. Listening to others for Mr. Fetterman, according to the report, is like “trying to make out the muffled voice of the teacher in the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon, whose words could never be deciphered.”

Seriously, who does this to a person? What kind of family dumps a guy out of the hospital, forces him back to the campaign trail and then dispatches him to Washington to live as a mental invalid?

Democrats, that’s who.

Sadder still is that much of Mr. Fetterman’s current condition can be blamed on his wife and family’s refusal to allow him to recover back while he was forced to campaign instead. 

“He has had to come to terms with the fact that he may have set himself back permanently by not taking the recommended amount of rest during the campaign,” according to the report.

Such is the lust for power and politics for Democrats.
