Is Congressman Miller Veritasphobic?

It seems that a certain local congressman's office called to complain about me and/or the Thursday host on WEBY.

Why? Read these blog posts:

A politician can distinguish himself in Washington by seniority or merit.

Like most, our Congressman Jeff Miller, who has veritasphobia, is a fine example of the former.

God help us all.

P.S. What's a stupid politician? A tautology.

How about a little more Congressional humor:

"How much do you think Senators make? They now make $154,700 a year. But they say it will stimulate the economy because eventually that money will trickle down to the liquor stores, the hookers, the brothels ... then it will get back in the community." —Jay Leno, on Congress voting itself a pay raise

There is no distinctly American criminal class - except Congress. —Mark Twain

Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself. —Mark Twain

The taxpayers are sending congressmen on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it except they keep coming back! —Will Rogers

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer. —Will Rogers

The trouble with practical jokes is that very often they get elected [to Congress]. —Will Rogers

The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets. —Will Rogers

With Congress, every time they make a joke it's a law, and every time they make a law it's a joke. —Will Rogers

Tell me your favorite Congressional joke.
