I actually do try not to pick sides as the brouhaha in Washington, DC continues.
Remember that very old riddle?
Q: How can you tell when politicians are lying?
A: Their lips are moving.
I’m old enough to have watched (and, believe it or not, still remember) the Watergate hearings. That was when Earl Landgrebe (R, Indiana) said: “Don’t confuse me with the facts. I’ve got a closed mind. I will not vote for impeachment. I’m going to stick with my president even if he and I have to be taken out of this building and shot.”
Try to imagine the members of Congress as scientists debating a mathematical theorem.
“2 + 2 = 5, and don’t try to convince me otherwise!”
“No, it’s 6 and your mother wears combat boots!”*
Never mind, it takes more imagination than I can muster.
* Actually, not at all unusual these days–Ladies, thank you for your service.
