Maybe I'll switch to this version every morning.
Beware the sanctimonious when they make laws. Scratch a moralist, and you will find a hypocrite. ~ Shakespeare
Thanks! I needed that!
A couple of years ago, a Republican committee staff director told me candidly (and proudly) what the method was to all this obstruction and disruption. Should Republicans succeed in obstructing the Senate from doing its job, it would further lower Congressís generic favorability rating among the American people. By sabotaging the reputation of an institution of government, the party that is programmatically against government would come out the relative winner.
-Mike Lofgren, 28 years as a staffer on the Republican House and Senate budget and other committees, often dealing with national security and defense issues
The prodigal Ickster has returned! Yay!
INSANITY IS NOT A PLEA. IT'S A WAY OF LIFE.
Some hearty knaves and simple fools,
Some apish and pragmatic mules,
Some servile acquiescing fools,
These, these comprise a congress.
When Jove resolved to send a curse,
And all the woes of life rehearse,
Not plague, not famine, but much worse,
He cursed us with a congress.
from the Revolutionary War
Thats a little offabit, isn't it? Love it and thanks for my morning giggle!
"There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people"
"A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its
women are on the ground."
