Open Mike with Mike

A hot mike and a disgruntled but unaware politician with an axe to grind.  What could possibly go wrong?

I mean, other than a savage little truth-telling spasm such as the one that seized Senator Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) yesterday in the Senate as he complained to a colleague about the Democratic strategy for the lameduck session — whoops!:

It’s all rigged,” Bennet said (clip below). “I mean the whole conversation is rigged. The conversation, the fact that we don’t get a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck. It’s just rigged. This stuff’s rigged.

Can’t say I disagree.

    What’s surprising is that it took him so long to figure it out!

    Good morrow, all!
    You can’t win. You can’t break even. You can’t get out of the game.
    Politicians have this idea that they can make a difference.

    Good morrow, all!
    If you can read this, you have the internet. Go to YouTube. Type in George Carlin. Just about everything he’s ever done, from the Smothers Brothers in 1968 to his interviews at the Paley Centre in 2008, are there. All his stuff.
    Nobody has to miss him. The problem is, finding enough time to watch all that there is to watch.
    Read his books. Collect all his stuff. Watch it, laugh and learn.
    George Carlin is forever, and easier to find than God.
    Hmmm…touch of irony there, eh? – CTZen

Wait. What?
