Ratings and Comments

E Archer, NYC

That's why whenever oppressive legislation is shot down, it keeps coming back buried deep within other bills until it is passed.

Mike, Norwalk

In context pretty funny, or as Archer points out in reality: 'not'.

Anonymous, Reston, VA US

There is nothing to admire in that, true or not.

Jack, Green, OH

Short memories (in the electorate) may helpful politicians but definitely not admirable in them. Otherwise we wouldn't have a second Vietnam so soon after the first

Ken, Allyn, WA

Down the memory hole....
