News flash. Our great U.S. senator, David Vitter, R-La., has made a surprising discovery. There’s an idiot (Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.) in the U.S. Senate!

What it really sounds like is two 10-year-olds arguing in the playground.

One says my storm is bigger than your storm. The natural response from an intelligent U.S. senator is “You’re an idiot.” I’m thinking this may be a euphemism.

The amazing thing is there are still people who wonder why nothing is accomplished in Congress.

The voters of these two states should be very proud for sending two such mature men to the Senate. I’m wondering who is more intelligent, these two men or the people who sent them there?
