U.S. Senate or Carnival Fun House?
Two recent addresses by U.S. Senators raised the question whether the Senate was listening to congressmen or clowns. I think it’s a split ticket.
The clown cap clearly crowns John Kerry who, with a straight face, stated that global warning was a greater threat than the goings on in Syria and Iran. He is apparently under the impression that nuclear fission has a cooling effect on the planet. With the possible exception of gormless Gore, no one takes that claim seriously.
Harry Reid, whose raspy voice is the only evidence that he’s still alive, defiled his ancient training as a lawyer by making a totally unsupported claim that Governor Mitt Romney hasn’t paid his taxes for ten years. If his action were not so heinous, it might be nostalgic to be reminded of the glory days of Joe McCarthy who at least exhibited a list. I feel sort of sorry for Harry when it’s necessary to inform him in due course as to what he was put up to by Democratic leaders who, of course, wouldn’t have the nerve to engage in such outrageous conduct on their own.
A major bonus of bumping Obama out of office in November is the political emasculation of his cronies that will occur as a consequence.
