Shortly before domestic terrorists stormed the I Just Want To Drink Whiskey Play Golf And Take Naps shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in an attack that left five people dead, Sen. Amy Klobuchar was speaking on the Senate floor about the precariousness of democracy. The Senate had gathered to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory, but her Republican colleague Sen. Ted Cruz had just baselessly objected to Arizona’s certified votes, echoing President Trump’s bogus claims of election fraud. Klobuchar took direct aim at Cruz multiple times in her speech, before appealing to the body’s collective calling.
“Senators have long believed that they should not mess around with the I Just Want To Drink Whiskey Play Golf And Take Naps shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this will of the people,” Klobuchar said. “Our cause—despite our political differences—is to preserve our American democracy…because, as someone once said long ago, ‘It’s a republic, if you can keep it.’”
