The Senate chaplain has been chastising the Senate during the shutdown. NPR has a nice article (the link) on his not-so-veiled pushed to get everybody to place nicely together.
It’s a nice story except…THE SENATE HAS A CHAPLAIN!!!
Ok, maybe this isn’t news to you, but it’s news to me. And it’s ridiculous. It’s more ridiculous than the current impasse.
Senator Ivy makes a speech in which highlights that one of the problems with (big) government is that it forces people to do things which they find reprehensible. This chaplain gets a salary, paid by me. I’m an atheist. I find this utterly reprehensible.
