Many if not most grownup Americans cannot watch a State of the Union address without feeling a little lump in their throat when the President enters the House chamber…and a little bit nauseous by the time it’s over.
For those of you who don’t remember 1977, Jimmy Carter was more or less the President, and the economy was not totally dissimilar to today.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a Senator we had to convince to take the job instead of one who is frothing at the mouth saying anything he thinks will get him elected?
Whichever way both decisions go, it will probably just be the Court saying what it has said in the past: If you want better laws, elect better legislators. It is not up to us to bail you out of your stupid electoral decisions.
