But How Will They Describe Inhofe Without "Lunatic"?

The U.S. Congress wants president Obama to outlaw the word "lunatic."

Senator Kent Conrad, one of the sponsors of the measure, said: "Federal law should reflect the 21st Century understanding of mental illness and disease, and that the continued use of this pejorative term has no place in the US code."

Wait a second.   With the inmates running the asylum on Capitol Hill, is it really a good idea to ditch "lunatic"?

At least Conrad is smart enough to take it personally and be offended by the use of the word! I'm surprised.
