Congressman Blunt then went on to tell an anecdote which suggested that life in Washington, for GOP members today, is comparable to the lot of imperial British agents in India who had to contend with monkeys running amok on a golf course that the colonial occupiers had carved out of the verdant Indian jungle. There was a problem, the Missouri Representative explained; monkeys would come out of the jungle, grab golf balls, and throw them about. Amidst swelling laughter from his audience Roy Blunt narrated,
"I could go into great and long detail about how many things they did to try and eliminate the 'monkey problem.' But they never got it done, so finally this golf course and this golf course only, they passed a rule and the rule was - you have to play the ball where the monkey throws it. [audience laughter swells] And that is the rule in Washington all the time."

Ever think ALL the Dem are monkeys, not just the one race! Not a one of them is grounded in reality. They all want to believe the elitist, government as your mommy party line. No common sense among them. They choose to be Dems; weren't born into it or something. Doesn't mean they are competent. Would you rather it was Dodo birds moving the gold balls?
