@ Bob Simko: couldn't agree more.  That said?  Who would put those term limits in place?  Has to come from those individuals for whom a virtual lifetime appointment has become the norm.  Would love to see it happen because it should, but don't see Congress (either side of the aisle) doing anything to change it.

I'm in favor of term limits, but I also want experienced people running the government. A dichotomy!

While Jon Stewart went to Congress to talk directly to them, Mitch McConnell appeared on Faux News just so he can answer in a smug way without any opposition. McConnell said that Stewart was "all bent out of shape" and "looking for some way to take offense" about the Senate once again delaying funds for 9/11 survivors and first responders.

He is a coward to the BONE.


Great rebuttal.... especially at the end.

-C!

I'm curious to see if McConnell does the right thing or not. The spotlight is on him and I am anxious to see if he can be shamed into passing the legislature without altering it.
