I am so delighted to discover that Dr. Ronny Jackson is running for Congress in the 13th District in Texas. Jackson, you will remember, was President Trump’s White House physician and his pick to be the secretary of Veterans Affairs until he was scurrilously attacked by my home-state senator, Jon Tester, as a drunk, a drug addict, a bully, you name it.
Tester threw everything but the kitchen sink at Jackson, then when he forced Jackson to withdraw his nomination, it turned out there might not be any evidence of wrongdoing at all.
Mission accomplished. Maybe Tester learned from his Democrat mentor Harry Reid, who falsely claimed that Mitt Romney never paid any taxes, then later smugly said his smear “worked” because Romney lost his election against President Obama.
Of course, Tester wasn’t the only Democrat to attack Jackson. Since the doctor worked for Donald Trump, he was a frequent target. Though he had served President Obama with honor, as soon as he gave President Trump a clean bill of health, he was written off as a Republican stooge.
Anyway, on Super Tuesday, Admiral Jackson is running in a crowded field of 15 Republicans for a chance to succeed longtime GOP Congressman Mac Thornberry. It is really only just that Jackson gets elected, and returns to Washington to take his revenge in the Swamp creatures like Tester.
You got a taste of that today on Twitter when Jackson scalded Joe Biden for his frequent and increasingly bizarre gaffes on the campaign trail. On Monday night, Biden apparently forgot what office he was running for, and Jackson provided an impromptu course of medical action, if not a diagnosis.

No really! That is too precious!
Let’s hope Texas sends Jackson back to Washington to be a thorn in the side of Democrat obstructionists and a vote for President Trump in the Congress!
