Can anybody play this game?

That was quote from Casey Stengel, I believe.  He said it of his expansion team, the New York Mets, which was at that time, the worst team in baseball.

I used that quote in reference to the ruling class, who seem to not be able to read the Constitution, and understand basic straightforward language.

The Democrats want to keep saying that Trump is crazy, and therefore can be removed from office according to the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution.  The amendment is pretty straightforward.  It provides the means by which a president can be removed from office if a disability truly exists.  It is not sufficient to say that it can be used just because you don't like him.  However, if two thirds of both Houses say that he's nuts, then he can be removed.

There ought to be a means by which to remove a Congresscritter, who insists that this amendment says what it does not.  But there is a means.  The Congress polices itself.  So, why don't the Republicans tell the Democrats to STFU?

You have to wonder about that.


Update:

Even though the Gop doesn't act like a party, they still beat the Dems, who do.  Make what you will out of that one.
