The United Face in Palms of America

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

Well another typical work-day at the Capitol.

The Senate shot down legislation to remove the prosecution of rape from the military chain of command, delivering a stinging defeat for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), who has built significant support for the idea in recent months.

Because you know it had been a big priority before hand.

Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) on Monday had objected to the votes, saying they should be paired with a vote to stiffen sanctions against Iran.

Well, it’s not like sexual assault issues are a problem in the military or anything.

The top Army prosecutor for sexual assault cases has been suspended after a lawyer who worked for him recently reported he’d groped her and tried to kiss her at a sexual-assault legal conference more than two years ago.

I’m sure that was just a unique occurrence though.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
