Again, I am not a political individual. (Remember? Tricky Dick....twice!) But that doesn't change the fact that a lot of those politicians are funny ducks. Kinda like Senator Robert Byrd. Senator Byrd is probably somewhere around 157 years old, give or take a few. Democrat guy out of West Virginia. When the Michael Vick dogfighting debacle came up, this guy felt the need to preach his feelings about it to the rest of the Senate. (No, I don't know why. No, I don't think that's what his job is. Yes, 157 years old, that is correct.)
He clearly was against the whole dogfighting thing (as we all should be). But to listen to him make this point, well, it makes a few other points as well. Like the point about how we shouldn't allow people who are 157 to be Senators. I was kinda worried for the guy a few times during his speech. I thought he might have had a stroke or worse yet, died or something. That's because he just STOPS speaking. But then picks up right where he left off about 10 seconds later. And when I say "picks up right where he left off" I mean with the exact same word he was saying when he stopped talking. The word? Barbaric.
"The training of these poor creatures to turn themselves into fighting machines is simply barbaric. Barbaric. (3 sec.) Barbaric. (5 sec.) Bar-BARIC! (10 sec.) Bar-BARIC! Let that word resound. From hill to hill (except that he says "hill" and it sounds like "hell", so it sounds like "from hell to hell") and from mountain to mountain and from valley to valley across the land. Bar-baric. (3 sec.) Barbaric. (7 sec.) May God help! (10 sec.) (This is where I got really worried about him.) those poor souls."Sphere: Related Content
