It’s not easy being Pete Sessions, our redoubtable Dallas congressman. First, you have to go along with whatever your party bosses tell you. Second, you have to go along even when your party bosses don’t know what they’re doing. Third, you then have to participate in dumb publicity stunts like taking bolt cutters to the World War II memorial that you closed down. Gee, can’t a guy just have a nice stroll without being blamed for everything?
I especially like Sessions’ out-of-nowhere line that “We are not French.” Non, monsieur? Then why are you trying to hand us a French economy?
