Is That So?
Every now and then, the conclusion is inevitable that our best minds are not in the U.S. Senate or the House. Or maybe they are and they are surrounded by fools. Frank Rich brings proof on two issues: banning gay unions and immigration.
Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, proclaimed "that in his family's recorded history there has never been any kind of homosexual relationship." He said that. I'm not making this up. Now, I don't know about your family, but most families do not "record" every relationship in or out of a bedroom. Rich added:"Any bets on how long before someone unearths the Inhofes' unrecorded history?"
Then our very own Jim Sensenbrenner proclaimed that employers who hire illegal aliens are akin to 19th-century slave masters "that we had to fight a civil war to get rid of." As Rich points out, for that historical analolgy to add up, you'd have to believe that Africans sought voluntarily to immigrate to America. Whether Sensenbrenner is out to insult Arfrican Americans or is merely a fool is a distinction without a difference."
Thank you Frank Rich and special thanks to Inhofe and Jamie S. You keep us smiling.
Gitmo Suicides: The military spokesman, defending Gitmo, said that the three who killed themselves were working together. The suicides, now under investigation, constituted an act of war. (Is Inhofe writing this stuff?)Expect release of a report soon that all three are dead.
