When Will They Ever Learn? When They Lose an Election!

What do a tornado in Alabama and Army bureaucracy have in common?

Aside from the possibility of tasteless jokes about the former and the ignorance of the latter, they both exemplify how even the thickest of politicians can learn something.

The Thickest-in-Chief -- impervious to fact, truth, military strategy and toleration -- fired the general in charge of the snakepit at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as the result of newspaper reporting and then called the governor of Alabama offering immediately federal help for tornado victims.

Brandeis once said, "Sunshine is the best disinfectant." It turns out that elections are even better.
