Democratic Senator John Fetterman epitomizes arrested development and represents a broader trend of lowered standards eroding the nation's greatness.

Fetterman, the oversized man-child elected to the Senate, is renowned for his peculiar attire—hoodies and gym shorts, a look that flaunts defiance against convention. His discomfort in wearing the customary attire for those in important roles, like a suit and tie, led to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer relaxing the dress code to accommodate him.

The elimination of the Senate's dress code reflects a troubling trend of declining standards across various facets of American life. This trend often disguises itself as promoting equity or racial justice. In education, tests and grades are discarded to avoid disparities, undermining academic rigor. Portland, Oregon, debates "equitable grading practices" that don't penalize cheating or missed homework, arguing for fairness while perpetuating low expectations.

Higher education isn't spared either, with schools disavowing "Standard American English" as biased. This neglect of proper language skills harms students' professional prospects.

Such lowering of standards seeps into law enforcement, exemplified by New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg's refusal to prosecute certain crimes, emboldening criminals.

America's reluctance to hold people to high standards is evident in unchecked thefts, diminishing public safety and commercial viability. Embracing accountability and high standards is vital for America's prosperity.

John Fetterman symbolizes the celebration of mediocrity, yet America must reject policies and practices eroding its standards and strive for excellence to fulfill its potential.
