After reading Craig Nichols’ (letter, July 18) far-right liberal bashing of Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, I figured he must have quickly perused the July 17 Marc A. Thiessen column, as it seems he forgot to bash Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who by the way, had President Trump condemned as the racist we all know him to be.

That is, except Colonel Mitch McConnell, who said the Trumpster is not a racist and neither is he, as he is not sure where Obama was born either.

Oh well, according to one of my thick books, Dr. Wernher von Braun was not so much of a hero as he was a necessary evil, as he was more or less captured from the Russians at the time Comrade Stalin was rounding up all the Nazi scientists he could find.

I mean, hell-fire Craig, it sure wasn’t Papa Joe who made that little beeper called Sputnik.

As for your V-2 rockets, there were very few of them that were ever used. The real horror was the V-1 buzz bombs that were so unpredictable as they simply flew until they ran out of fuel, and then dropped to explode upon contact.

It appears we will all have to wait and see who the next Trump victim is to know who the local far-right sheep will be bashing next week.
