      I don't know about Corker, but the other three have always impressed me as 'ne'er do wells". I thought we elected on the basis of their capacity to "drain the swamp". If these three guys are any indication of a real stink, why do I get the impression that, sooner or later, one of them might be spewed out on my kitchen floor while I am listening to what the news is that is suppose to matter?
