The Inky Gulf

Well, our betters in the Senate wish to inform us that, no, the differences between themselves and the House is more like a "vast inky gulf".

John Chichester certainly has a way with words.

"We'll listen to anything they propose," Chichester said. But the Senate simply can't abide using the General Fund as a source of dedicated transportation funding.

I suggest the Senate would listen to anything the House might propose, so long as it is phrased in rhymed couplets or in the form of a Zen koan.

What is the sound of one House clapping?

In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
