See what happens when you fall asleep in the Senate?

Another guest post is by our pal and regular TPC contributor, David Garber, whose new book HOLLYWOOD HUCKSTER – A Memoir of Hysterical Proportions can be found at Amazon (Here's his post about it.):

Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa -- I hear you have some hurt feelings. President Obama doesn't call you like he used to, or so you publicly complain.

Could it be, Chuck, that you're just too deaf to hear the phone ringing -- or simply out of touch?  How many other senators still use that old crank phone to ring up Mable the operator, so she can connect you to the farm next door?

Or could it be that you're just so senile that you don't realize that you HAVE been talking with the POTUS and thought he was your farm's cowhand who just had an unexpectedly strong interest in politics along with his deft touch in milking cow teats?

You really think he's ignoring you?  He's trying to get through to you -- only you hear the voice of Bitch McConnell and not the voice of our leader or the people he represents.

Perhaps if you awoke from your 32 year stupor in the Senate chamber, you'd realize you should spend less time worrying about who's calling, and make some calls himself -- like to your fellow Republicans and tell them to $#!t AND get off the pot and legislate.  All of America is waiting on you, not a call from Obama to tell you that you're drooling, not legislating.
