In a social media post Tuesday, actor best known for his starring roles in the TV shows “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Andromeda” and more recently the family-friendly films “Let There Be Light” and “God’s Not Dead,” Kevin Sorbo blasted Republicans, declaring “YES THEY ARE,” in response to a Patrick Buchanan column titled “Are Republicans Born Wimps?”

“YES THEY ARE….we put them in office and they cave in all the time,” posted Kevin Sorbo in a tweet. “Most are Republican in name only….”

Continuing his screed, Sorbo suggested term limits are needed and that there should not be lifetime Senate jobs.

 “We need a two term limit on both sides of the aisle,” said Sorbo in a more complete posting on his Facebook page. “Let the public vote on that. We should replace 25% every year. No more lifetime Senate jobs!”

The Hercules actor’s comments came in response to a Patrick J. Buchanan column, citing gopusa.com, wherein Buchanan quotes Jerry Falwell Jr. calling Republican leaders “a bunch of wimps” and suggesting more need to be “street fighters like @realDonaldTrump at every level of government b/c the liberal fascists Dems are playing for keeps.”

In his column, Buchanan goes on to suggest that “the son and namesake of the founder of the Moral Majority … has here a self-evident point” given that on Thursday of last week “11 GOP senators on the judiciary committee freely forfeited to a female prosecutor their right to cross-examine Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”

Buchanan believes the Republicans did so because they “feared that televised images of 11 white men, sharply questioning the credibility of Ford’s claim to be a victim of Kavanaugh’s sexual assault, would be politically lethal.

“So, while the Republicans mutely abstained from challenging her,” Buchanan went on, “Ford was treated by the Democrats as the reincarnation of Joan of Arc, though not a single witness has corroborated her story.”

Then, later, Buchanan solidifies what he thinks Falwell’s point is: “Democrats fight savagely and for keeps, while Republicans – street-fighter Trump excepted – are wimps, often bewailing any loss of camaraderie with their colleagues across the aisle.”
