Mitch McConnell is the Real Frank Drebin!

I love when life imitates art. Here's Mitch McConnell bleating about how if NSA bulk surveillance sunsets May 31 as scheduled, The Terrorists will slaughter us all in our beds... and then he says, "Now let's take our weeklong summer recess!"

But remember, Frank Drebin of Police Squad and The Naked Gun got there first -- at the 3:00 minute mark...

You really have to wonder whether these guys are driven more by cynicism or laziness. Either way, at least they're good for a laugh.

Politics in America—particularly Republican politics—is just short of insane. And the length of the campaign season is beyond absurd. As in many European nations, the campaign season should be limited to not more than four months.

And you don't want to get me started on the money in American politics…or the waste.

Thanks for the clips. Made me smile. Good way to start my day.

Your site needs to be updated. Right now (August 20, 2015), it looks like you are too busy to add additional observations.

I enjoy your take on these troubled times, but I am disappointed that you haven't shared your pungent thoughts.
