Why we don't have any class...


I am continually disappointed with the rhetoric that comes out of the House and Senate. During a time when street talk continues to drag the English language into the gutter, one would have hoped that CSPAN would change things, at least as far as our elected officials are concerned. Alas, it seems that we elect people who either have no class to begin with or lose it on the way to D.C. There was a time when flowing rhetoric and brilliant speechmaking was a hallmark of the denizens of the Senate, but not any more. Frank Lautenberg lowers the bar once again with his chickenhawk speech the other day:

Compare this to Lincoln's second innaugural speech. Please, put me out of my misery.
