Should I Tell Him

...that Congressional hearings have been an excuse for Congressional grandstanding for as long as I’ve been paying attention? That before they did it for FoxNews, they did it for ABC/NBC/CBS. And probably the Red and Blue networks before that.

There is indeed nothing new under the sun. And the world didn’t fall into decay and corruption shortly after you started paying attention.

  1. I can't recall which 19th century House member gave a florid speech insulting one of his opponents that talked about him "stinking and shining in the night like a decayed fish" as I recall reading. Then there's the cane attack on Senator Sumner.

    When I want to feel better about the appalling behavior in the Congress I watch what goes on regularly in the Brit House of Commons, then I go to the entirely more sane Scottish National Assembly which shows me Scotland is a lot more ready for independence than England is.
