This is a mental experiment. Do not try it at home.
Suppose that the hundred members of the present U.S. Senate were trapped on a desert island with a man-eating dragon and only you could save them. In which order would you save them, and how many would you save before you decided to quit?
I’d save six right off and then think about the next eleven. After eighteen at the most, I’d just sit in my boat and watch the dragon movie.
NOTE: Man-eating dragons define the word “man” in the old-fashioned male chauvinist way….. laydeez. Also, John Kerry just got himself kicked off the boat.
