Beer For Congress
Yesterday evening I had a grand idea. Let's serve beer to congress as part of their sessions.

Ben looked at me for several moments like I had either had a stroke of pure genius or pure insanity but couldn't decide which.

Current Mood: amused amused

I think you are on to something. These days, Congress Critters spend so much time fundraising, even during legislative sessions, that they don't have much time to let down their hair and socialize with each other on a friendly basis.

pure genius!

There is an old saying that "Alcohol is a Truth Serum" maybe if we get a few beers in them they might stop acting like tight wads. Then again C-Span would be much more exciting to watch when we see the drunken brawls.

Part of the problem is that they are to wound up.. they need to let loose, saw what is on their mind and not some politically correct or political party dogma.

I think they would be much more amusing on weed.

I'm reminded of Ram Das remarking that a lot of those high-power players are constantly flying across time zones, taking stimulants to get going and depressants to sleep, failing to realize what a good formula that is for making you an aggressive jerk.
