Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

John Oliver “Luckily, there are some people in Congress who are paying attention.”

Fox anchor June 18th “Within the last hour, a statement from Republican Congressman Justin Amash (R-MI) and the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee John Conyers (D-MI), who are introducing legislation to limit the collection of phone records, and force secret national security court opinions to be public.”

MSNBC anchor “This strange coalition, very liberal and very conservative, you don’t often hear that these days.”

Oliver “That’s right.  Not only is Congress actually responding to this scandal, Democrats and Republicans are actually working together.  That feels strange.  It’s like when an animal becomes friends with a totally different animal (shows picture of a small monkey hugging a bird).  It’s lovely to see, but something about it just feels wrong.  Sure, maybe they’re going to work together to get a banana out of a tree.  But, call me cynical, once that fruit hits the ground, you’re going to end up with a dead bird and a blind monkey, both laying next to a rotten banana.”
