State Rep. Brian Sims, a Philadelphia Democrat, posted an epic Facebook Live rant this week after learning that a Republican member of the House had self-quarantined after testing positive for coronavirus — a fact that the ruling GOP leadership knew but did not share with the minority party, while at the same time pushing policies to reopen the state for business. His points are spot-on and delivered with a passion rarely seen from public officials.

Sims also seasoned his delivery with more than a few four-letter expletives, which brought to mind the old “NSFW” (internet shorthand for “Not Safe For Work”) warning that often is included with emails or postings containing potentially objectionable content. But ripe as Sims’ vocabulary was, it wasn’t as unsafe as the duplicity and hypocrisy of the House GOP.
