The late, great, Charles Krauthammer possessed an intellect admired by people worldwide.
I’m learning he also had a terrific sense of humor.
In the book entitled The Point of It All, he has a chapter called Why I Love Australia.
Here are the first two paragraphs…
’In the Australian House of Representatives last month, opposition member Julia Gillard interrupted a speech by the minister of health thusly, ‘I move that that sniveling grub over there be not further heard. ‘
For that, the good woman was ordered removed from the House, if only for a day. She might have escaped that little timeout if she had responded to the speaker’s demand for an apology with something other than…’If I have offended grubs, I withdraw unconditionally.’
For those watching our House shenanigans these days, we now can characterize one member as Adam ‘the grub’ Schiff.
