Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

A cautionary tale...

Once upon a time, there was a Republican Congressman from New Jersey named Chris. Because Chris was a good little Republican, he got to be the chair of the Veteran's Affairs Committee. But Chris had a problem: he actually wanted to help our veterans, so much so that he argued with the other Republicans! So a big mean man named Dennis gave Chris's job to Steve because Steve cares more about pleasing King George than about those dumb ol' veterans. Who probably didn't even earn those purple hearts anyway. Dumb veterans.
