    Your Honor,

    I am already familiar with the Democratic platform.

    Tax, tax, tax,tax Spend, spend, spend, spend.

    Go to Washington to beg for more money to Spend, spend….you get the idea.

    Where is the Republican caucus, where you learn to spend, cut taxes, spend some more, cut more taxes, and learn to shout so well? 😉

    Fred,

    We held the Republican caucus in a telephone booth with enough room left over for a cash bar.

    We talked about cutting taxes followed by a long period of prosperity, when all of a sudden the Democrats gamed the system and all fell apart.

    Perhaps so. See, bi-partisanship isn’t dead.

    No weapons, right?
