Jim Saxon Scared of Tools
By now you’ve probably heard that the day-long scare over “gunfire” on Capitol Hill was really just Rep. Jim Saxon’s inability to differentiate the sound of construction machinery from gunfire. No word yet on whether he can differentiate excrement from a defunct brand of shoe polish.
As I note in my last update to the original post, “Saxon is going to go down in the Annuals of Congressional Courage along with Senator Mark Dayton, who closed his office the month before the 2004 elections based on a non-existent terrorism scare.”
No, Saxon never served in the military. Why do you ask?
He’s also apparently never seen “Heartbreak Ridge,” wherein Gunny Highway teaches his men, “This is the AK-47 assault rifle, the preferred weapon of your enemy; and it makes a distinctive sound when fired at you, so remember it.”
