myself before the common good
That group of posturing hypocrites who pose as "the greatest delibrative body" are discussing the future of our nation . Immigration , energy independence , even the common language, all are being considered and voted upon. You would think that these 'statesmen' would consider the welfare of the country but these poltroons only consider their own political advantage. They vie for the approval of pressure groups ranging from the now anti-american ACLU, UN, Amnesty International to the super patriots and religous right. The disgusting spectacle would be amusing ,in a sordid way, if we did not have people dying in Afghanistan and Iraq while they preen and prance at their circus on capitol hill.
