A local candidate for Congress, who has clearly taken his Superman Underroos too much to heart, is running ads promising the sun and moon in his freshman term -- he'll bring back jobs, "Roll back the economic policies of the Bush Adminstration," (tax us harder and longer, I think he meant to say) and best of all, to "Bring home the troops from Iraq and stop the violence on our streets." Umm, d00d? It don't work that way. Have you read the Constitution of the United States of America as amended along with some basic Federal law? Did you pay attention in Civics class or did you just skim the Cliffs Notes version?
The fellow is an M.D., to boot. How long is it been since our medical schools started handing out G.O.D. degrees to the really brightest graduates?
"Posse Comitatus Act." Geez-o-pete.
