Erecting a case for censorship
Every once in a while, the sandbox politics of Washington, DC, gives us more reason to laugh than to cry. Such a felicitous moment arrived unexpectedly last week as Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer blustered about the approaching impeachment hearings.
"Make no mistake,” Senator Schumer intoned, “there will be a trial, and when that trial ends, senators will have to decide if they believe Donald John Trump incited the insurrection against the United States.”
However, the senator stumbled over the word “insurrection” and replaced it with a different word -- one that rhymed and was more suited to the bedroom. Needless to say, in today’s hyper-partisan climate, zealots on either side of the aisle are eager to promote the erection of scandals upon the flakiest of foundations.
