Congress needs 8th Grade Civics Teachers to Bring them Into Line

The Onion

Wrote to many members of Congress this week–a completely empty gesture, but one I make periodically. So far, only Senators Durbin and Kirk have replied, which doesn’t surprise me, as I don’t live in the other jurisdictions, and Quigley’s staff is always slower to respond than Durbin’s.

I’ll leave it to you to compare and contrast the responses. Senator Durbin’s response is here; Senator Kirk’s is here.

Last time I contacted Senator Kirk, I started getting regular emails from his office and calls from the Illinois GOP. I’ve never had an email from Senator Durbin’s office which was not in response to something I sent them, but I get calls from the Illinois DNC all the time.
