Politics: not exactly child's play

I don’t have any kids, but I’ve certainly been around them enough to understand a few basic things about parenting. You have to keep an eye on them. They love chaos and trouble. And they will turn almost any implement into a tool of destruction.

I knew a guy who made sure his son had no guns, to swords, no toys at all that could be used as weapons. The boy ran around with a rubber train locomotive, shouting “Bang! Bang!”

I was reminded of that when I stumbled across this statement by the soi-disant next Speaker of the House Of Representatives:

“The gavel of the speaker of the House is in the hands of special interests, and now it will be in the hands of America’s children.”

A gavel is, essentially, a hammer. A wooden one, not one with a steel head, but a hammer nonetheless.

This woman, who talks about doing things to help and protect children, wants to give them a hammer.

Will our nation’s walls, furniture, and pets survive a Speaker Pelosi?

I’d rather not find out, thanks.
