Another Reason To Detest The United States Senate

Isn’t it bad enough that the majority of Distinguished Senators exhibit all the morals of a Tiger Woods chippie?  Must they then “catapult the hypocrisy” (in Dubya-speak) by acting so goddamned touchy about the absurd protocols of their all-but-useless institution?

On the Senate floor today John (“The Skipper”) McCain leapt to the defense of Joe (“Gilligan”) Lieberman after mean old presiding officer Al Franken denied the request of McCain’s little buddy to bloviate for an additional minute.  Oh, the horror!  Oh, the lack of comity!  Every precious syllable of Lieberman sanctimony deserves its place in the noonday sun!

Well, fuck that.

  1. In the spirit of your post, I noticed you failed to refer to Franken as Al (“What a Joke”) Franken. Probably a typo.

  2. I knew it had to be something serious keeping you away while Lieberman was in the spotlight!
