Channeling too Much "Hamilton"

Texas congressman Blake Farenthold (R - Corpus Christi) has vaulted into prominence lately with the startling announcement that he would like to fight a duel with female Congressperson Susan Collins (R - Maine) over their differences over health care legislation. Apparently, he might have seen or read about the currently popular play on Broadway, "Hamilton," and thought that dueling could be a straightforward South Texas way of reconciling political differences.   

Does he not know that the winner of the famous duel, Aaron Burr, was the villain of the piece; or that dueling is illegal in each of the fifty states? Anyway, the issue behind the health care debate is how best to provide insurance for treatment, not to increase the number of people requiring some form of health care!

Anyway, here is Representative Farenthold and a friend showing what a well-dressed Congressperson should wear for sleep attire. I think, that in the service of full disclosure, each of the other 434 Congresspersons and the100 Senators should also pose in their sleepwear. Except for the ones that sleep in the nude, of course.

Congressman Farentholt and a Friend

For his epic performance in his conduct in public office, and for making the residents of the Lone Star State very proud, he seriously deserves an appropriate award for display on the desk in his office:

Jackass of the Week Award

As you know, I have advocated bringing back the duel as a way of breaking Congressional gridlock. But perhaps a different approach might be to have an evening gown/tuxedo competition and a bathing suit competition as part of the electoral process. The only drawback I can see is that a bathing suit competition would preclude the carrying of concealed weapons, and would thus receive no Republican support. Oh, well ...

I look at picture like that and think how in the world do people like this get elected.

Hmmm.... Dumb statement coming from a person supposed to be representing We The People, but 'Jackass Of The Week'? I dunno. There's so much competition each and every week.

A very appropriate award. Will this be a regular feature? There certainly are a lot of jack asses out there.
