The Senate leader apparently was attempting a refinance to the Biblical passage of Hosea 8:7 when he started spouting off about whirlwinds. Just maybe he should read his references before he refers to them.
For that matter, it would do us all good to read or re-read the passage as I did with a few of the verses that follow. I will say this much. It in no way refers to the judgment by men but rather by God.
I do find it somewhat ironic that the passage refers far more to the senator than to the justices of which he spoke.
