The difference between the Republicans and the Democrats being sworn into the House last week

by Joey deVilla on January 6, 2019

The Republican side of the House being sworn in. They’re like leftover instant mashed potatoes in the fridge: white, cold, weirdly uniform, and way too easy to stir.

From Vox:

Thursday’s House speaker vote and opening of the 116th Congress set up a striking visual moment in the lower chamber: On Democrats’ side of the aisle, a historically diverse class of women and people of color were clad in bright outfits as they were sworn in, while on the Republican side, a relatively homogeneous group of mostly white men wore nearly identical dark suits.

The Democrat side of the House being sworn in. A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and much closer to the American ideal.
