I can’t (cough) come in to work today, I’m (cough) not feeling (cough) too good. BANG! Got’em!
Good work from Andy X:
Always enjoy your blog. Always hated jocks who are in politics, so I enjoyed reading about your take on the Oklahoma race and the usual GOP hypocrisy of Steve Largent. Something struck me though, he was hunting in Idaho on September 11??? Wasn’t the House in session then? I thought it was, so I when to the legislative calendar on Thomas and sure enough, Congress took it’s summer break from Aug 3 to Sept 5, 2001, returning to session on Thursday Sept 6 (gotta give those late starters a few extra days after Labor Day!) and was definitely in session the following week, during which Largent was off hunting in Idaho, rather than doing the “people’s bidness”in Washington.Geeze, the guy had just had over a month off – shades of GW Bush – and here he is playing hookey going off hunting once things start up again. I wonder if anybody in Oklahoma noticed or cares.
