Why is it that every politician in America thinks he has to run his mouth about the child massacre in Connecticut? If they had something original to say, or even slightly helpful, that would be one thing. But they don't, not a one of them. So I wish they would stop. Democrat, Republican, conservative or liberal. Just stop.
If they aim to act, get moving and go do it. I proposed one such act -- immediate reinstatement of the death penalty in Connecticut. While we're t it, this would be a good time to reinstate capital punishment in the other states that have legislatively repealed it in the last few years (Illinois, New Mexico and New Jersey).
But we've had the discussion, ladies and gentlemen. You can listen to your TV all you want (or can stand). You won't hear a thing you haven't heard before. Much of it is phony. It's not there is nothing genuine here; quite to the contrary. It's that anything genuine does not need to be staged in front of a camera. Virtually everything that goes on in that setting is a study in platitudes. None of it represents thinking a normal adult couldn't do for himself.
So, politicians, stop. Just stop.
