Now showing: Congress

Has anyone else noticed that the U.S. senators and representatives who appear on television news look like movie actors playing senators and representatives? They’ve just come from the congressional barbershop – every hair is in place. Their expensive suits are impeccable.

Taking bribes is an impeachable offense for members of congress, so they redefine bribes as campaign contributions and say they’ve done nothing wrong. These are the same people who raise their own salaries at will, while cutting away help for ordinary people with medical and educational expenses, etc.

We have a president who exhibits contempt for the Constitution and thinks the laws of the land don’t apply to him. It’s a 9-year-old’s idea of what it is to be president: he can do whatever he wants without getting spanked, and nobody can make him follow the rules.

It sounds like our national actors are reading a script written by the devil. Impeachment is the remedy given us by the Constitution. We should use it, starting at the top.
