Re: Slightly OT: DeCandido for Senate!

It reminds me of a T-shirt I have seen in American Chopper: "Mikey for President!"

Re: Slightly OT: DeCandido for Senate!

But what if someone brings up GARGANTUA in the confirmation hearings? That could scuttle his nomination for sure!

Eh, y'all have forgotten one thing. Keith will take one look at what passes for "public transportation" down in DC and quit anyhow. Metro trains are broke these days more often than they run, and don't even THINK about taking public transport between Baltimore and DC!

Pfffft. He'll be a United States Senator. I'm sure he'll get his own private shuttlecraft.

Public transit? He'll be a senator. Don't they all get limos with their own mini-bars and underaged senatorial pages?

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Senators don't get their own pages. There are Senate pages, but they literally work for the Senate itself -- i.e., the Senate secretary and his clerks.

Senators get their own interns. It's Representatives who get their own personal pages.

Except during the Senate/House swing parties, of course.

Eh. I've seen the Senate pages. They're kids from local high schools who are still wearing their braces and whose voices haven't broken yet.

Those Senate intern girls I worked with, though? Frickin' hot college girls who could drink you under the table.
